Captains Address: Seniors Captain opened the meeting at 0900 and thanked those attending. He briefed the committee on 2 outstanding competitions the Feb Stableford, yet to be rearranged and Buckland Rowe, the latter to be played on 3rd March after the completion of the Summer KO draws.  He also stated that although the course was going through a hard time with the weather we should make the most of what we have.

Matters Arising (Sec)

There were no matters arising.





1.  Programme Updates. Decision: Sec to e-mail listed updates for members handbooks.

2.  Speed of Play. Since making changes to start procedure and highlighting the need for all to be aware dramatic improvements have been forthcoming. No further action.

3.  Policy for Home Match Cancellation: Will remain with the match Captain of the day.

           Decision:  Sec to include this decision in the Functional Manual.

4.  Policy for Dress Code at Post Match Home Meals. The Sec advised the committee that the current status of jacket & tie was voted in by the members at AGM’s in both 2015 & 2016. So the present committee does not have the authority to change that policy without a further members vote at either an EGM or AGM. He also suggested that it would be prudent to seek permission for the change from the present club owner as we are representing his club.      

        Decision 1. Seniors Captain to liaise with club owner.

        Decision 2. Whatever the outcome the Functional Manual is to reflect the decision.

5.  Sec gave an update on PSI terminal.

            Decision. Sec to e-mail video link to all members pre go live date.
