MEMBER TEE BOOKINGS AND BOOKING ETIQUETTE
In recent weeks I have been asked to look at how the tee booking system is being used in order to ensure that the rules in place for making bookings are being followed, and also to try and ascertain if the general etiquette that we would expect from members is being observed.

I would like to thank all of you for using the booking system correctly, and for those of you who have signed up recently to make your bookings for competition golf, but I would also like to highlight some of the rules in place that we ask you to abide by.

Sunday Golf – Members are reminded that only 1 guest can be signed in by any one member before 12.36pm. At which point this number increases to 3 guests.

Single Player Bookings – All members are entitled to reserve a single time slot on the sheet, but we do ask that this time is used and that any cancellation of this time is done in a timely fashion. Often these times could be used by others if the space was free. Please be considerate of your fellow members.

Guest Bookings – Each member is reminded that you can invite the same guest up to 6 times a year and up to 15 guests in total at the reduced rate of just £25. All guests above and beyond the 15 will need to pay £40 each.

Thank you in advance for following the rules in place and for being respectful of other members.

Philip Worthington
General Manager
