SENIORS SECTION

Welcome to Carholme seniors

 

Carholme Golf Club Seniors Section is looking forward to and anticipating a successful golf programme for 2019/2020. We welcome members over the age of 55.

 

We have a member nominated committee comprising a Chairman,a Secretary, a Competitions Secretary, a Match Secretary, and a Treasurer.

Three other nominated members support the committee in these roles alongside other members who offer their support in the running of the
Seniors Section.

 

Between March and October we have a busy schedule of fixtures and matches. In total we arrange 49 competitions.

It is the full remit of competition type – individual Stableford, Medal, and Par competitions; some qualifying and others non-qualifying; some are also senior club board competitions.

 

We also arrange Pairs competitions, Waltz and Texas Scrambles.

Our competition days are Mondays and Wednesdays.

There are two charity competitions with proceeds going to The Lincoln Air Ambulance and Macmillan Nurses Cancer Care.

 

We also have a total of 18 social matches against local clubs home and away, and participate in a Tri Club competition with Pottergate and Oakmere Golf Club Senior Sections.

 

This year Laceby Manor are hosting the annual five club Small Beers competition involving ourselves, Southwell, Laceby Manor, Oakmere Park and Millfield Golf Club Senior Sections.

 

Our Seniors away day will be held at Beedles Lake Golf Club this year on Monday 12th. August.

A programme of away days to other courses has now been completed for 2019 on a Friday once a month. Known as  L.I.M.P.S.

We continue to play golf in the autumn and winter months with informal competitions arranged for Monday, Wednesday and Friday for those who wish to participate.

 

Carholme remains a challenging par 68 course and the green staff have worked hard throughout the winter on course improvements most notably on
the bunkers.

We also benefit from excellent catering provided by Chas and Lesley in the clubhouse.  Our annual Xmas Dinner will again be in the
clubhouse beginning of December.

We wish all members of Carholme Golf Club, and all golfers elsewhere,
a successful 2019/20.

Jack Wrisberg.

Chair of Carholme Seniors Section.

MEMBERS RULES NOTICE

After the proposal last year for golfers to measure relief by 20 inches or 80 inches, the standard one or two club lengths will remain. Golfers can take relief using the longest club in their bag barring the putter.

 

There will be no longer be a penalty for double hitting a shot. Golfers will simply count the single stroke they took to strike the ball, rather than counting two shots for hitting the ball twice.

There will be no penalty for accidentally moving your ball on the putting green or when looking for it. A player is not responsible for causing a ball to move unless it is “Virtually certain” that they did. 

The flag stick no longer has to be attended or removed when putting and there will be no penalty if a golfer hits an unattended flag stick in the hole. 

Golfers will be allowed to repair spike marks as well as other as well as other damage on the putting green. There is no penalty for merely touching the line of utt.

 

Golfers can now touch the ground with their club in a hazard and can move loose impediments in a hazard without penalty.

 

As well as that, golfers can move loose impediments in bunkers and will not be penalised for generally grounding their club away from the ball. 

You can still cannot ground your club when playing a bunker shot. An unplayable lie may be taken in a bunker, with a drop out of two strokes.

 

Player integrity will be relied on to the point where a player’s “reasonable judgement” will be trusted. 

The 5 minute golf ball search time has been scrapped. From 1st Jan 2019, golfers will be allowed only 3 minutes to search for a strayed ball. 

 

Carholme GC will be encouraging ready golf in all competitions from 1st January 2019 and recommend that players take no longer than 40 seconds over a shot

.

Also Carholme GC WILL NOT be introducing a local rule, that allows players to drop a new ball in the vicinity of where their ball has gone out of bounds, with a 2 stroke penalty. You may apply this rule in friendly games if you wish.
