Any Other Business.

Discussion was reopened from a previous meeting (March) regarding competition and/or social golf for senior’s members which led to the committee posting Seniors Committee Notice No1 dated 09.03.2019 on the Seniors Notice Board.  The notice explained the position of the committee regarding competition/social golf and requested that members who had reservations regarding this position to lodge these with a committee member, no comments were forthcoming. The recent e-mail circulated to all members again requested comments regarding competition/social golf. Just 13 returns were made with 3 being from committee members, 8 from members making general comments but these would not be affected by any decision made and two from members who would welcome some form of choice on competition days.  The committee at present did not feel that sufficient evidence exists to warrant an immediate change to the present position on competition/social golf and will therefore monitor the situation and act accordingly.
