NEW WEEKEND TEE TIMES

 

Dear Member,

As of the 31st January 2015 a single tee start system will be introduced. Anyone wanting to play 18 holes at the weekend will therefore start from the 1st hole, those wishing to only play 9 holes will be able to start from the 10th hole up and until the first members group from the 1st hole arrive.

This decision has been taken to alleviate the current issues arising from golfers integrating from the 18th hole to the 1st hole. Operating a one-tee start enables us to manage the tee sheet far more efficiently, thus allowing members to have confidence that they will tee off on time. To aid this transition, our tee times will change from 9-minute to 8-minute intervals; this allows us to gain an extra tee time per hour.

Also, the 1st hole will become a compulsory “call up” hole, this is to try and avoid golfers waiting on the tee until the green has cleared.

In addition, we are making earlier tee times available to the membership, these times will of course vary throughout the year due to sunrise times changing.  The first tee available in the height of the summer will be 7.00am.

The Senior Management Team understands totally that these fundamental changes may not necessarily meet with everyone’s approval, however we truly believe that the new tee time system is in the best interest of the Golf Club as a whole. It will take a short time for the membership to adjust to these changes; during this period we would appreciate your cooperation and patience. 

The processes of booking tee times remain the same. Should you have any queries or concerns please speak to a member of the professional staff in the Pro Shop.

Many thanks in advance.
