As mentioned, the Club plays on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at the Park and our normal start times are mentioned above.
After joining you will have access to our internal on-line booking system. Some members like to play early and some like to play in the later games; there is no favouritism and the tee slots are available on a first come first served basis. For all our event days we operate our own forward bookings system that enables Club members to start placing their own game requests over the internet up to three weeks in advance of the actual day of play. This routine and the use of email where relevant ensures that everyone who wants to play will be able to play.
On the day of play we ask members to arrive at the Park at least 30 minutes before their designated tee times. On arrival our members ‘sign in’ for the competition via an entry screen located in the clubhouse. At the conclusion of the round and after the scores have been agreed by the all the players in a game, the scores must be recorded in Club’s handicapping system preferably via the entry screen. Once all the competition scores have been entered the competition results are then published and the new individual handicap indices set by England Golf are available for viewing.
This might create the impression that Sundays and Wednesdays are relatively uncomplicated and flexible and this would be a correct interpretation of our arrangements. Handicap certificates are of course available to all Club members.
Please note: Whilst starting handicaps are available after 54 holes of golf are recorded on WHS, the Club has a policy that requires new members to have a further three scores on their WHS records before being eligible to enter in the Club’s Sunday and Wednesday competitions. The Club helps new member to complete the three supplementary rounds as soon as possible.
