Seniors Open Texas Scramble Cancelled
Unfortunately due to the current restriction on travel for exercise, we are unable to proceed with the Seniors Open Texas Scramble scheduled for the 2nd of July. We kept the competition open for as long as we could to see if it would have been possible to go ahead, but we now know for definite that we cannot hold it as planned. For those of you who made the entry and payment, please contact email@example.com and speak to Debbie who will organise your team refund.
We hope to see you next year.

GENTS COMPETITION PROCEDURES COMMUNICATION NOTICE
Please have a read of this Communication Notice to help with the smooth running of the administration of competitions Gents Competitions Communication Notice
In order to obtain or re-instate a handicap, three cards must be returned clearly marked “For Handicap”. Two may be played off yellow tees but one must be played in a medal competition from the white tees. Cards must be marked by another member. An active handicap is required to be able to enter “Major” competitions and to play in the knock out events. You can still enter the knockout trophies, but must obtain a valid handicap quickly in order to play your first round tie.
To transfer a handicap, a certificate that should contain your CDH number should be handed or posted into the office with a covering note.
Players must sign in on competition days in the Professional’s shop at least ten minutes before their tee off time. There is a two stroke penalty for failing to start on time.
It is essential that all scores, including no returns, are inputted to the computer with the scorecard inserted into the respective Section box. Failure to adhere to this may result in the first and second instance with noting and warning, followed by exclusion from the next major competition in the event of a third instance.
GENTS MEDALS, SUNDAY MEDALS & MIDWEEK MEDALS
No draws are done for the above “regular” medals, and tee times should be booked in the normal fashion. Entry to the competition is by signing the sheet in the Pro Shop.
DRAW SHEET COMPETITIONS
The entry sheet gets pinned up for Major (drawn) competitions at 12 noon three weeks preceding the event. It is not unusual for a queue to form to secure the preferred teeing off band. Members must enter their membership number, which for the forgetful are listed in the display folder, and can only enter their own name.
The draw gets made and typically displayed up to ten days before the competition. Until the draw is made a waiting list on the entry sheet can be used. The draw for all major competitions is an open draw in time bands done by the computer.
After the draw sheet has been published no alterations to that draw can be made other than by Michael Kanev or his staff. Members must not write on or alter the Draw Sheet. All notifications of withdrawal or requests for late entry after the draw sheet is displayed must be made through the Professional Shop staff who will record such requests. Any such notification must state membership number, time slot as well as name.
If no notification of withdrawal is made, the member will be given a warning in the first instance followed by exclusion from the next two major competitions for a repeat offence.
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:-
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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 email@example.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.
