Here is some information about entering competitions this season, starting with the 5-club, 12-hole Stableford on Wednesday 17th March.
Note: this competition will be played over holes 1-12, on the GREEN course only. The club's winter rules will still be in force, meaning that play should be from mats rather than the fairway.
There will be no charge for the 5-club competition, with £2 entry fees commencing with the handicap-counting 18-hole medals in April.
Scoring on the day can be done either on the Scottish Golf App on your phone or by card (send pic to Jan once you finish your round), as you prefer.
There are 2 ways to enter for a competition:
1) If you WISH TO BE INCLUDED IN A MORNING BALLOT
You must email the competition organiser using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org at least 9 days before the competition. eg for the 5-Club on Wednesday 17 March, you must email by the Monday 8th March (11pm).
(In the case of this first competition I will email all the eligible playing ladies from the above email account inviting them to reply if they wish to be included in the ballot).
The ballot draw will be done on the Tuesday 8 days before the competition, and those entering for the ballot will be allocated first to the playing slots between 9.30am-10.30am (approx). The draw for the 5-Club will be done on Tuesday 9th March. Your time will be available to view on the Scottish Golf App, by looking at the competition draw on your phone from Wednesday 10th March onwards.
2) If you wish to play OTHER THAN IN THE MORNING BALLOT
This includes those wishing to arrange their own game, including those wishing to play for example at lunchtime, or in the evening and anyone who wants to enter for the competition after the ballot has been drawn eg on the day before the competition.
These players should enter the competition using the Scottish Golf App. Once entered they should select their tee-off time using the "My Tee Time" button on the App (purple colour).
Entries can be made and tee times booked 7 days in advance of a competition. Eg entries for the 5-club on 17th March will open on Wednesday 10th March. Note that this means competitors can book their competition time before the tee sheet opens for General Play booking on the Thursday. This is the same system that applies for the Gents Competitions - competition play can be booked 7 days in advance and general play 6 days in advance.
If you have any questions, email them to email@example.com and one of the ladies Handicap Committee will try to help you.
