Discussion and decisions

Action by



Captains Address:  The Captain welcomed the members of the Committee and stated that a good start had been made with inter club and the Ladies friendly. However, next year it must be a priority to confirm the rules well before the day of the competition. At this point the Sec pointed out several ideas that he considered would further enhance the day.

  1. Consider moving matches vs Ladies to more suitable times of the year.
  2. All play off the same tees, game would be far more sociable.

The committee was in agreement and Sec to draft a letter for the Ladies Committee.

The format of play was discussed but it was considered that the majority preferred matchplay.

Decision: Draft a letter to the Ladies Committee with the above suggestions.

The Captain then stated that he would like to increase committee meetings to one per month. After some discussion it was agreed that informal committee meetings, i.e no agenda or minutes required, would be held on a trial basis for 3 months, first meeting 5th December 2023.
