The golf club has signed up with Sports Club Lottery, to give all Kingsknowe Golf Club members, families, colleagues and friends, the opportunity to be part of a lottery that will bring benefits directly to the golf club. The Lottery goes live on the 1st of February and we hope that many members sign up for the chance to win cash prizes. For all the details see here: Kingsknowe Lottery Details

Book a Members Outing Before 31 Jan to Receive a £1 Discount and Free Bacon Roll Each
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. For every player in an outing booked before the 31st of January 2018, the price will be reduced from £17 to £16 and each player will also receive a free bacon roll if food is booked as part of the package.

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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com

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.
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.
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.
