Message from the Club Captain

Hello Fellow Golfers.

Well what a year!  A year that started off with me getting presented with my Captain’s jacket and looking forward to representing Antrim Golf Club.  But then, as everyone knows Covid 19 put a stop to everything in March.  No golf, no GUI competitions where I could support our teams, no socialising at the bar after 18 holes on a Saturday or Sunday and none of the banter which goes with this.  All these had to be sacrificed so that everyone could stay safe.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow Committee members who continued to have monthly meetings using Zoom, especially Kenny Lee, Victor Watson and Bob Tweedale for their efforts when we eventually got back to playing again.  Also all the Centre staff, who helped to get us back, playing safely on the course again.

So now, with Christmas approaching, we maybe have some light at the end of a dark tunnel with the roll out of a vaccination for this terrible disease.  So with the hope that sometime next year we will get back to some sort of normal, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy (covid free) New Year.

Regards, David Glass.

IMPORTANT re Use of Club Time Slots and Returning Scores

Dear Member,

You are reminded of the following Club Rules.

 

Not Honouring Time-Slot

Following the decision made at the AGM on 5th December 2006 to change the Time Sheet from a weekly to a monthly basis, the Committee has amended the penalty for a member not honouring his time-slot to the following:

Failure of a Club Member to honour his Club time-slot twice in a rolling calendar month will result in that Member’s right to book a Club time-slot in Home competitions on the next posted Time-Sheet (MONTHLY) being suspended.

Cancellation of time-slots will be acceptable up to 7.00pm on the THURSDAY immediately preceding the weekend of the competition.

 

Monthly Timesheets (March 2014)

Please note that if you are unable to use your competition tee-off time you must remove your name from the timesheet before 7pm on the Thursday prior to the competition (this will allow other members to book the slot). You can remove your name in person or contact reception and ask a member of staff to remove your name on your behalf. You cannot remove another members name without permission and Centre staff have been asked not to remove another members name at your request.

 

Time Sheet Conditions of Use

ALL Members booking a slot on the Club Time Sheet must enter the Club Competition. Failure to adhere to this condition will result in the withdrawal of the Member’s right to enter the Club Competition or use a slot on the Club Time Sheet the following Saturday.

 

Returning Scores

From the beginning of December, members are requested to return their scores no later than 7pm on the day of the competition.

 

Removing your name in a timely manner is especially important at this time as our Club Slots are oversubscribed and it is important to give others the chance to rebook the slot being vacated.

Keep Safe,

Kenny Lee
