All Member Fridays

Friday Mixed Social Golf

The Friday Mixed Rollup will start on 16 April, 8.00 start. As we can’t have a rollup under current restrictions, we will booking on HDiD. Note that the times on the HDiD booking sheet will not be used, tee times and playing groups will be drawn – you will receive an email from BRS with your confirmed tee time. However, unless you advise to the contrary, it will be assumed you would prefer to be drawn a tee time close to that which you entered on the booking sheet.

There’s no competition entry fee. However, previously, Friday players have put a pound in the pot to go to the winner and places, depending on numbers. This will again be available, on a voluntary basis. So, if you wish to play for more than just a good score, bring a pound coin to drop in the pot before you start your round. The money will be dealt with in a Covid secure way, no change given and prizes will be distributed the following week. All money taken will be paid out as prizes. Of course, you have to be in it to win it.

The club is particularly keen to make this a truly mixed session, so we encourage all members to join in. It's a great opportunity to play with members from other sections. The format is a non-qualifying stableford, so although you will enter your score on HDiD, it will not go on your handicap record. This is so that we can enjoy the social game … and we can have (though not too generous) gimmes.

The first three competitions have been set up on HDiD, you will find them under "bookings". The initial sessions are being organised by me, Keith Loxton, with more than a helping hand from Jean Barnett. If there any members wishing to get involved with running the Fridays, maybe on a rota basis, please let me know. I can't express how pleased I would be to hear from you.

Looking forward to seeing you on the course.

Seniors Golf is Returning

I am delighted to be able to tell you that we are now permitted to commence Seniors Competitions.

Competitors will be required to use the booking form on HDiD. This will be for all Seniors Competitions, be that Mondays or Wednesdays. Currently, there are no “roll-ups”. The booking sheet will be released 5 weeks before the competition date and closed 2 weeks before the competition date.

Competition tee times will be published on the AVGC BRS booking system. Irrespective of any information you may hold, your BRS tee time is the only one that matters.

Having entered a Competition (after the close date for entries) should you not be able to play, you must contact the organiser as soon as possible. For Mondays that would be Dave Lea and for Wednesdays, myself (Keith Loxton).

The Club are only permitting 3 balls. This means all competition fields will be in a 3 ball format. In the unfortunate event that there are no shows on the day that will mean some groups having to go out as 2 balls. Under no circumstances will a 4 ball be permitted until AVGC direct otherwise.

On the day of the Competition, please remember to sign-in on HDiD before you start playing and complete your score card during, or asap on completion of, play. The competition will be closed no later than 17:00hrs. The intention is to move this time closer to the end of play for the field.

Finally, the early Seniors Competitions will be free to enter. For these, Trophies and Honours Board entry will be as usual, but there will not be any cash pot. This will be reviewed monthly.

So to the things that matter, the first Seniors Competitions for April:

Monday 12th April – Opening Stableford, booking open Monday 8th March, booking closed Sunday 28th March

Wednesday 14th April – Wednesday Stableford, booking open Wednesday 10th March, booking closed Tuesday 30th March

Monday 19th April – Seniors Medal (1), booking open Monday 15th March, booking closed Sunday 4th April

Wednesday 21st April – Wednesday Stableford, booking open Wednesday 17th March, booking closed Tuesday 6th April

Monday 26th April – Seniors Summer Six (1), booking open Monday 22nd March, booking closed Sunday 11th April

Wednesday 28th April – Wednesday Stableford, booking open Wednesday 24th March, booking closed Tuesday 13th April

I hope that you enjoy your return to golf.
