2017 AGM


COURSES FOR THE 2017 SEASON


We have decided the dates and courses for the 2017 season. Darren is booking the courses. The dates & course details will be published as soon as we have them.

HANDICAP RULE CHANGES


STABLEFORD COMPETITIONS

We received a lot of comments about high handicaps in the society and agree they are becoming very high for certain players, so we have agreed to stop the bottom three players handicaps in each of the five stableford competitions rising by the previous handicap system.

MATCHPLAY

Matches in the You Know You Want It Matchplay Trophy will now be played at 3/4 the difference between the two opponents handicaps rather than the full handicap difference.

When we make the draw this year I will publish on the matchplay web page how many shots are to be given.

CHRISTMAS TEXAS SCRAMBLE

In the 2016 Xmas Texas Scramble we had two players who had low handicaps who haven't been playing regularly in the society & that made their team be at a disadvantage in the competition.

As we draw one low handicap player, two middle handicap players & one high handicap player in the draw, we will play the 2017 Xmas Texas Scramble with no handicaps.

If there is a tie, we will count back the gross score on the last nine holes. If that is a tie then we count back the last six, three, two & one hole until we have a winning group.

MEMBERSHIP FEE CHANGE


We are raising the 2017 membership fee from £10 to £15

The £5 increase is so we can award the 2017 Garby Clark Trophy winner £100 prize money.

The Garby Clark Trophy is the player of the year trophy & in the first six years of the society the winner received a handshake, if he was lucky! The £100 cash prize is to try and encourage more players to play all five events & win the trophy.

COST OF A ROUND CHANGE


We are raising the entry fee of the stableford competitions from £35 to £40

The £5 increase has been made for four reasons.

1. Each player will get automatic entry into the hole-in-one competition. I will take a pound per player from the total money collected and add to the hole-in-one prize. This will stop us having to collect the £1's at each stableford competition.

2. We are introducing a longest drive competition on each of the stableford competitions. It will always be on the 18th hole, you must hit the fairway for it to count. The prize is three Heppy's Golf Society logo balls.

3. We are introducing a raffle at the end of each stableford competition where we draw players names out in pairs, add up the two stableford scores from the day & the pair with the highest score will win £15 each. If there are an odd number of players, the last person drawn out will have their stableford score doubled.

4. We have been charging £35 for cheaper courses and £40 for the more expensive rounds (Rudding Park & Hull). We will still charge £40 for every stableford competition.

GARBY CLARK TROPHY PRIZE


The Garby Clark Trophy winner will now win £100 prize money.

The Garby Clark Trophy is the player of the year trophy & in the first six years of the society the winner received a handshake, if he was lucky! The £100 cash prize is to try and encourage more players to play all five events & win the trophy.

STABLEFORD PRIZES


We are going to purchase some Heppy's Golf Society logo pitch mark repairers and ball markers to award to the five stableford competitions in 2017.

LONGEST DRIVE


We are introducing a longest drive competition on each of the stableford competitions. It will always be on the 18th hole, you must hit the fairway for it to count. The prize is three heppy's golf society logo balls.

FOOT-GOLF


A suggestion was made to have a foot-golf event at the Eagles. Nothing has been arranged yet but we will look at having a competition there later in the year.

PROMOTING THE GOLF SOCIETY


We discussed better ways we can promote the golf society to try an attract some new members. We don't need lots of new golfers but some new keen members are required.

We are going to take some group photos from the golf days and put them up in the pub.

We will promote the upcoming events better in the pub & using social media.

We are going to create some colourful A3 posters and put the on the board as you walk into the pub and other places in the pub so more people notice them.

I will create some digital images to send out on Facebook and Twitter. We will need members to share them with their friends/followers on social media.
