REPAIRING PITCH MARKS ON THE GREEN

The Committee regrets to advise that some of our members are forgetting to repair their pitch marks on the green. Members are reminded that repairing the pitch marks you make is part of common sense golf course etiquette.

If unsure on how to repair a pitch mark properly, do the following: Take your pitch mark tool (or a tee) and insert the prongs into the turf at the rim of the depression, rather than the depression itself. Using a gentle, twisting motion, push the edge of the mark towards the centre. Flatten by gently tapping the surface using your foot or the sole of your putter.

ACT/NSW COVID RESTRICTIONS AND PLAYING GOLF REQUIREMENTS

Members are reminded that COVID restrictions relating to the playing of golf and checking-in to enter premises may vary between the ACT and NSW jurisdictions. It is each member’s responsibility to make themselves aware of those restrictions before participating in fixtured events and when playing in NSW, check in using the SERVICE NSW app.

You are urged to check the current COVID/golfing restrictions at the golf clubs we play at by clicking here.

UNFINANCIAL MEMBERS

You must be a financial member of the ACTRVGA (or affiliated VGA) to participate in any fixtured event. Unfinancial members will be disqualified by the Match Committee as ‘ineligible to play’ unless payment is made on the day of play. If you are unsure of your ACTRVGA membership status, check with the SECRETARY or CAPTAIN.

SCORECARDS

Members are reminded that incomplete or incorrectly filled out scorecards will result in a ‘disqualification’ being recorded against their Golflink number.

Check your AGU Handicap against the applicable ‘local’ SLOPE RATING sheet of the golf course you are playing at and not rely on the slope rating for the course shown in GOLF Link.

In addition, members must write their Golflink number on their scorecard each time they play in a ACTRVGA competition. No Golflink number recorded on a scorecard is also grounds for ‘disqualification’ by the Match Committee.

Players are to exchange scorecards before play and mark (and sign after having scored) their playing partner’s card.
