Away Scores Advice Note

We are now noticing that the vast majority of Away Scores are submitted automatically via the CDH system. To that end, we are going to do away with players submitting their scores manually apart from the following circumstances:-

1. The score has not been registered on your individual handicap record within 10 days of playing the event. It is likely that the away club has not submitted the score.  In this circumstance please write with details of the date, course, score, par, SSS, CSS and any adjustments to match@kingsknowe.com

2.The player recognises that their handicap will be going up and wants this adjustment made at short notice (All golf systems (including Intelligent Golf) do not allow players to adjust their handicap upwards at the time of entering their card. This is a recent change by CONGU).   In this circumstance please write with details of the date, course, score, par, SSS, CSS and any adjustments to match@kingsknowe.com and make contact with the Competition Convenors in person or by phone.

We thank you for your support with this change and we will monitor the situation closely until we are confident it is working well.  Feedback, when required, can be emailed to match@kingsknowe.com

Members Outing Policy

As an added benefit of being a member at Kingsknowe, the club has introduced an  initiative to encourage members to bring an outing of friends, family, colleagues etc, to Kingsknowe.  This will allow members to arrange an outing for people they are friendly with, socialise with, or work with, on an organised group basis as opposed to signing them on as guests.  These outings will mainly consist of non-members but can include more than one member joining up with another member (or members) to jointly organise their outing.  This is however not intended to be a substitute for a bona fide outing of an existing golf club, society or business organisation that Kingsknowe members would be part of.  For more information have a look at our Members Outings Booking Form.  The booking form can be downloaded from the bottom left of this page. Full information and policy available here: Member’s Outings Policy

MEMBERS NOTICE RE ‘MAJORS’ TEE TIME BOOKINGS

The Board Members have discussed the process whereby a member can request a tee time in advance of a “major” draw sheet being posted and will operate this under the following criteria: –

Tee times may only be requested by members when they are on holiday or where they believe they have exceptional circumstances. Requests must be made in writing and the Committee’s decision will be final.

Edinburgh Golf 

Edinburgh Golf

As Kingsknowe Golf Club is a member club of “Edinburgh Golf”, all members of Kingsknowe can take advantage of the Reciprocal Agreement between the member clubs.  This gives you the opportunity to book and play at the other 7 courses for a discounted fee.   Just contact the club directly and take along identification when you go to play.  Details for all the clubs can be found here EG Reciprocal Agreement Information 2017

Competition Draws:  On-Line Information

Members should note that a tee time in a specific draw can now be viewed in the members area of the website. If a member logs in using their log in credentials and click on competitions tab, search for the competition in the list and then click on “draws”, this will show all members’  tee times in that specific competition. Members are reminded to notify the Pro Shop of any late withdrawls / entries as the published draw is now laminated.

Pitch Marks

Please ensure that you repair any pitch marks on the greens caused by your ball, or any other ball landing on the green.  This area has proved problematic over recent seasons and something all members need to pay special attention too.  This greatly helps the green staff improving the putting surface you play on. The greens staff and greens committee hope that all the hard work put in over the winter will provide members with a course in great condition for the coming season.
