Restarting Separate Saturday and Sunday Competitions as well as Wednesday Competitions

Due to the extended playing time for the golf course and the reduction in the time between tee slots, the Committee have decided to return to having separate competitions on Saturdays and Sundays starting this weekend (Saturday, 4th July). Members will therefore now be able to play in competitions on both days.

It is also the intention to restart Wednesday competitions from Wednesday, 8th July.

Entry to all competitions will be by using the recently introduced Genesys system and entry to a competition and payment must be carried out before going on to the course, as stated previously. Scores must be returned on the system no later than 10pm on the day of the competition.

Entry fee for the Saturday competitions remains at £4 and Sunday and Wednesday fees will be £3.

It is the responsibility of members to ensure they have enough funds in the system before entering a competition and if not, transfer further funds (£32) by Bank transfer in a timely manner .

(Members expecting to play in all three weekly competitions may wish to consider prepaying more than £32 to save making multiple Bank transfers).

If you know of any members who are not receiving emails from me, please ask them to send me their email address or, if they do not use email, ask them to regularly check the News section of the Club’s website where information is also posted.

Please note the revised Fixture List below .

Cheers,

Kenny

Members: How to enter the Club Qualifying Competitions

Dear Members,

The good news is that the Committee has decided to run Qualifying Competitions again starting next Saturday (20th June).

In order to abide by the Return to Golf Protocol agreed by the GUI/Executive and due to the fact that we have no access to the Clubhouse, it has been necessary to change the methods that we use to deal with competition entry, competition fees and entering scores. These will now have to be done online to prevent handling of cards or money.

For the next few weeks Saturday competitions will take place over two days (Saturday/Sunday) to allow more members to play. But obviously you can only enter the competition on one of the days and only that score may be entered.
In order to take part in competitions each member must lodge an initial sum of £32 (8 Saturday competitions) by Bank Transfer into the following Club account.
Sort Code: 95-04-31 Account No. 33818993
It is important that your Name or GUI No. is on your transaction to allow us to identify who has paid.

If really necessary, members may also post cheques to the Hon. Treasurer (Bob Tweedale, 13 Tobergill Gardens, Antrim, BT41 1AW)  but it is the responsibility of the member to ensure that it will arrive well before the first competition they wish to enter.

Members will not be able to enter the competition if the Match and Handicap Secretary has not been informed by the Hon Treasurer that fees have been paid beforehand.

Comprehensive step by step instructions about how to enter competitions and to enter scores have been posted on the Club’s website. Click this link    http://www.antrimgolfclub.com/?page_id=2502   for direct access.

Use the password AGC2020 initially to get on the system and then change to one of your own choosing.

You must enter the competition before starting your round and ensure there are sufficient funds to pay the fee, otherwise your score will not be accepted.
Before returning scores, members of the playing group must verify each other’s scores.

At all times it is important that members abide by the safety measures outlined in the Protocol. Not to do so may result in disciplinary action.

Stay safe.

Kenny Lee
(Hon. Secretary)
