Central Database of Handicaps (CDH) --- UPDATE

The Scottish Golf Union, Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association and Golf Union of Wales (GUW) have committed to producing a Central Database of Handicaps (CDH) for golf clubs and their members in Scotland and Wales.

Aimed at providing a wide and vitally important range of benefits to golf club members, clubs and their administrators and the governing bodies, the CDH project will be delivered by the Unions as a service to affiliated clubs.
As presented at the SGU Club Seminars at the end of 2009, the development of the Scottish/Welsh CDH is now reaching its final phases.To read more --- Click on the following link

New Method of Entering Scores Trial, Plus

In an attempt to reduce the number of times competitors names are deleted in error when "entering a competition", we would like to trial the computer in the locker room ONLY being used for ENTRY to the competition. Scores should be entered via the computer in the Smoke Room, close to John King's office. It is a very straightfoward touch-screen system and do have your club card handy as you need to "swipe it " (as you do on entering the clubhouse) prior to entering your score. Please return your signed card to the metal box in the ladies locker Room as usual.
Could I also draw your attention to the Newsletter Section of the website (password is our Pro's first name). It features recent information on the Course from the Greens Convenor and also an up todate list of the Social Evenings planned for the Club over the next few months.
