This week

Play in the Flag Competition any day until Sunday 16 August.

See instructions posted on the blog by Joy for how to enter.

W/b 17 August

Wednesday 19 August and Saturday 22 August - counting Stableford competitions. 

Enter on the Scottish Golf App from Wednesday 12 August. Note: because the issue of 2-tee competitions is still to be resolved for us by Scottish Golf, there will be 2 competitions set up for EACH day - one Red Tee and one Green Tee each day. Make sure you enter the correct one for you.

Sunday 23 August

The Clive Cummings 5 Club competition will be open for both ladies and gents to enter. This should be a nice opportunity for us to play in a fun competition which will NOT be handicap counting because of the 5 club restriction. Enter in the usual way, booking a time on Club V1 and entering the competition itself on Scottish Golf App.

Wednesday 26 August

Ladies Tri-am between 9.30am and 10.40am.

Enter the Zoned Draw on Club V1 App. Entries will open one week beforehand (7am on Wednesday 19 August) and the draw will be posted on the blog by Monday evening 24 August.

Sunday 30 August

Finals Day - more details nearer the time

During the week beginning 10th August we are holding a Fun FLAG Competition which can be entered on any day of the week, between Monday 10th and Sunday 16th August.    Just book a time as usual with anyone you want, they do not need to play in the competition if they don't want to, but will need to keep a check on your cumulative score.
This will be a non counting 'Flag' competition, played on the Green Course and is open to all categories of members.  You can enter over 18 holes or over 9 holes but must enter on How Did I Do on the day you are playing - before beginning your round.

Instructions are very simple:-
1.  You have a maximum number of strokes to use so you keep your cumulative total as you play, as well as your total for each hole.  If your handicap for 18 holes is 28, add that to 74 -the par for 18 holes- which gives you 102 strokes.
2.  Maximum of 10 strokes per hole.  Pick up and move on recording a 10 if necessary.
3.  Once all your strokes have been used, note accurately where your ball has finished and on which hole, or take a picture.
This could be "just off the back of the 17th green " or "in the bunker at right hand side of 18th green" etc.
4.  If you complete 18 holes and have strokes left over, that is what you record.
5.  Send this information to my email address :-
    crinan.mcl@gmail.com  - along with your Name, Date of play and Handicap.  You will also need to state whether you played 18 holes or 9 holes.

Exactly the same principle applies to playing 9 holes - Start at the 1st but don't start scoring until the 4th hole and play until the 12th.  Your number of strokes will be your 9 hole handicap added to 37, which is the par for the 9 holes.

I will blog instructions for entering on How Did I Do at the end of this week but in the meantime, I hope you will book your games for next week and think about which day you might enter the competition.

You will all know that in normal circumstances we each require to submit 3 scores every year to retain our handicaps.
In view of the disruption to our golfing activities this year, this requirement is waived. No handicap will lapse at the end of the season for lack of scores.
You can, of course, play in counting competitions and/or submit supplementary cards if you so wish.
Competition scores should be submitted via the Scottish Golf app, as detailed in previous messages.
If you wish to submit a supplementary score for handicap, could you please inform me before play by text or email, and email me a photo of your card after play is completed. 
I can be contacted on 07776 151659 or cunninghammorag58@gmail.com

Many thanks
Morag Cunningham (Handicap Secretary)
