please refer to NOTICES above
We have noticed lately that many of you are not repairing pitch and spike marks on the greens.
Please have some consideration for those following.
It is not that difficult to look where you are pitching to and where you are walking.
Do the right thing.
The GA Handicapping System
It is the responsibility of all members to know their EXACT handicap on the day of play, and to refer to the Scratch Rating and the Slope Rating according to the tees set up for that day. This will enable them to know their correct handicap for that day's play. The Slope Rating Charts will be posted by each club, and a copy is held by the Vet's Captain. Note: If your correct handicap is not displayed on your card,and you play off the wrong handicap,you will be disqualified.
The ACT Vets handbook has a section on slow play and members should make themselves familiar with these guidelines. Also refer to Section 6.7 of the Rules Of Golf.
Where groups fall significantly behind they could firstly be offered a warning for the group to catch up. If this is not sufficient then a penalty of two points from the score per player in the group could be imposed. Again, if this does not correct the situation then the group could be disqualified.
