MATCH RESULTS

 

G4L league matches: our final match of the season was at Minchinhampton Old Course and resulted in a loss by 60 points to 48.  The course was not in good condition. Although we have finished at the bottom of G4L this year, the matches have been enjoyable and we have learned a lot.  Arrangements for next year will be made in the autumn, and it may be that we enter more than one team.

 

SeniorsInter club Matches: to date we have won 7 drawn 1 lost 9. Most recent results were Cleeve Cloud (home) won 5.0 – 1.0;Minchinhampton (home) won 5.0 – 1.0; Gloucester (home) won 5.0 – 1.0

 

TEMPORARY LOCAL RULE REMAINS IN PLACE

This has been introduced to take account of the treatment of the daisies on the fairway: re-seeding cannot take place until the autumn.

Preferred Lies 7thFairway

When a players ball lies on the 7thfairway in the area between the 150 yard markers and the front of the green (between the bunkers), the player may take free relief once by placing the original ball or another ball in and playing it from this relief area.

  • Reference Point: Spot of the original ball.
  • Size of Relief Area measured from Reference Point: One club length from the Reference Point, but with these limits.
  • Limits on Location of Relief Area:

Must not be nearer the hole than the reference point,and

Must be in the general area.

In proceeding under this Local Rule, the player must choose a spot to place the ball and use the procedures for replacing a ball under Rules 14.2b(2) and 14.2e. Penalty for Playing Ball from a Wrong Place in Breach of Local Rule: General Penalty Under Rule 14.7a.This Local Rule is effective immediately and shall remain in force until further notice.

WE STILL NEED A CLUB SECRETARY

Unfortunately, pressures of work mean that Hanif Bhula has had to relinquish his role as Treasurer.  So Bob Wolfson has taken on that role, meaning that we need to replace him as secretary.  If you would be interested in joining the Committee and taking on this role, it would be great if you could contact Captain Paul Stevens or Bob Wolfson, who will be able to give you more details of what it involves.
