Lake rule changes

please do not go in the lakes...............

penalty drop at point of entry………………………

During our meeting with IRM last month we requested that players should not be allowed to play out of the empty lakes. We suggested that the directive should come from them and apply to all golfers – not just society members. Also we pointed out that the lateral water hazard markers (red stakes) should be positioned at the top of the banks, not half way down them. I am pleased to report that these suggestions have been acted upon, and are now in place.

no longer need to stand halfway down the bank......

Also from Friday August 2nd preferred lies on fairways will no longer be allowed in society competitions. The fairways are now in excellent condition and this local rule is no longer necessary.

looking good now.......

42 players took part in brilliant sunshine, with a manageable breeze to cool them down. The format of strokeplay proved testing, with only 2 players bettering par.

An addition surprise was a presentation made to Graham and myself. On behalf of the society members, the captain presented us both with an engraved mantle clock in recognition of our 3 years commitment as captain and president. It was a very nice gesture, and we will both treasure our momentos because the society means so much to us.
