England Golf is proud to launch its innovative new My England Golf (MyEG) app. The app, available now to download for free in Apple and Google Play stores, follows on from the official transition on 2 November to the World Handicap System (WHS) for the 1,800 golf clubs and 630,000 club members across England.
We can confirm that the Golf Course, including practice facilities, Clubhouse and Professional's shop will be closed during this period. We are pleased that we have the support of the sport's governing bodies, including England Golf who will hopefully shorten the time where golf is not permitted. We will continue to update you with any developments and as soon as we know when we can resume competition golf we will contact everyone with details of the winter competitions program.
This Saturday (31st Oct) is the last competition using the old handicap system. The Handicap software system will be off line on Sunday while the database is switched over so there will be no competition on Sunday or Monday. The new WHS system starts on Monday.
Unfortunately the inclement weather has upset our competition plans. With the course being closed this weekend we will be running the Stag final next Saturday 10th October in place of the Club sweep and the finals day will be next Sunday 11th October, along with the last counting Fred Punshon competition. The Seniors Shadbolt Trophy will be held on Monday 12th October.
A few reminders as we approach the end of the season. Next Saturday (3rd Oct) we have the Stocksfield Stag final and the qualifiers are listed below. This is also the last counting competition for the Paisley Cup eclectic, the Scratch Golfer of the year and the Handicap Golfer of the year.
Competitions purse - We will be implementing an overdraft limit of £6 on the competitions purse, starting on 19th September.
Remember the World Handicap System (WHS) comes into operation on 2nd November.
