LADIES GOLF UPDATE 03.09.20
Due to the number of mistakes we have encountered in the past month, the Ladies Golf C’ee have decided that cards will be filled out by the Pro Shop team on a Tuesday, just as they do for the men’s competitions, starting next week.
It will still be all scores on one card so that the last member of the group to pay ideally needs to collect the card. If anyone is unhappy with this, please try and select a playing partner who is comfortable with the process. We are still trying to minimize the card handling, but it is difficult to find the best solution for everyone.
Following the Ladies Golf Committee meeting yesterday, it has been decided that on the occasion of the Main Meetings in future, the time sheet will be adjusted.
The 18 hole competition entry will close at 12.00 noon.
The entries for the 9 hole competition may then start.
The 18 hole competition was not full, while the 9 hole did not to have sufficient times recently.
The situation will be kept under review as there are some 18 hole players who really do not wish to play before noon. Correspondence has been received regarding both competitions. It is a bit of a balancing act according to the numbers participating and this will be monitored by the C’ee moving forward. There is such great pressure on the time sheet at present, that we do not want to impact on the gentlemen playing later unnecessarily, or to see time slots wasted.

Centenary Team Event
This is a Red Stableford Team event to be played in drawn teams of 4 on 27/10/20.
To enter, please write your name and handicap on a piece of paper and post it in the box labelled Centenary Team Event found in the Ladies Locker room. Please be careful as there will be more than one box!!!
Closing date for entries is 07/10/20. The draw will be done immediately after that date and posted on the website and in the locker room where the box was – we are unable to use noticeboards.
A tee time will be allocated to each team and if found to be unsuitable, please arrange to swop with another team or take an unused time.
Formby Ladies Golf Club has kindly agreed to host the Elsie Corlett on the rearranged date of 6th October 2020.
Online entry will be available shortly on the website.
Unfortunately, Prizegivings as we know them are impossible at the moment. The C’ee would like to see the winners of the recent competitions announced and applauded! To this end there will be a socially distanced sharing of the recent Competition Results on the roundabout by the flagpole on Tuesday 22/09/20 at 5.00 p.m. If the forecast is wet this maybe postponed!
Following all last year’s troubles, it is hoped as many ladies as possible will participate this year, particularly as there are far less holidays being taken and people are more available.
Competitors must be 6 Day or 6 Day Plus members in order to offer weekend dates.
The league was designed to keep golf going through the winter, to give a learning experience of matchplay, and to encourage integration with other lady members. Alongside the Women in Golf Charter and to make the competition inclusive, it has been decided that one player in a pair must have a handicap of 30 or less.
‘half the difference of the combined handicap’ is the calculation used. Rules will be given.
This is a Foursomes Matchplay Competition.
There will be an 18 hole league and a separate 9 hole league.
To enter please find a suitable partner, write your names on a piece of paper with your handicaps. Please state clearly whether you wish to play in the 9 or 18 hole league. Then post your piece of paper in the box labelled Winter League in the Ladies Locker room.
Closing Date for entries is 07/10/20
As you see we are starting to use the locker room a little more, but it should still be restricted numbers – please do not congregate or we will lose the privilege!
