  • Following the November meeting of the Chase Golf Club Committee, I can confirm the Chase Golf Club will be holding a fundraising Race Night on February 28th, 2020. Further details will be made available in the New Year.

  • Following the AGM, the subscription fee for season 2019/20 has been set at £45. An email has already gone to members advising the amount payable by each individual for this forthcoming season. All subscriptions must be paid in full by November 30th 2019 or a surcharge of 10% of the Subscription fee will be added to the outstanding amount. Anyone wishing to pay their fees by Bank transfer should contact the Secretary/Treasurer for instructions. Any current member who does not wish to renew their subscriptions is asked to contact the Secretary/Treasurer asap to allow us to finalise our income budgeting. Thank you - John Brodie, Secretary/Treasurer.

  • Chase Golf Club Annual General Meeting 2019.
  • The AGM of the Chase Golf Club took place on Friday, October 25th 2019 in the Lounge Bar of the Chase Inn. The meeting commenced at 7pm with the annual prize presentation, undertaken, in the absence of both the Captain and Vice Captain, by the Secretary, John Brodie and Committee member and Honorary Life member, Jimmy Kelly. The Minutes of the 2018 AGM and the relevant reports from the Captain, Treasurer and Secretary had been previously circulated and were passed unanimously, including the proposal from the Treasurer (backed by the Committee) to maintain subscription fees at £45 for season 2019/20. Five new constitutional amendments were passed including all future candidates for Captaincy must have 2 years membership of the Chase Golf Club before being proposed. We then moved onto the Election of Office bearers for the coming season where John Brodie was elected Secretary/Treasurer and Alan Smeeton will serve again as Handicap Secretary. Election by show of hands was unanimous for both Archie McCaig and John Simpson while Roy McCubbin was elected on a majority vote as they become Ordinary Committee members. Several items of note were discussed with the dates for the Outing confirmed as May 16/17, 2020 with the venue likely to be in the South/South west of Scotland eg Stranraer/Dumfries areas. Qualifying for the Club Championships, both Scratch and Handicap, will now be 2 from 3 qualifiers followed by the Match Play stages. A proposal for the Club Championship to be decided by Strokeplay was heavily defeated. Prize money for the Summer Medals(April to September) shall be increased on a trial basis and discussed again at the AGM in 2020. The Chase Golf Club hopes to find permanent dates in our calendar for the two Club matches against Seafield and Carrick to avoid the need for postponements such as we had against Carrick. Our fixture list has been circulated to both Clubs in order that they can reply to us with their preferences/options. Further discussion took place on the proposals from Scottish Golf regarding the introduction of the World handicapping system in November 2020. Chase Golf Club members were unhappy that the current handicap software provider would no longer be permitted to administer our results and handicaps with Scottish Golf deciding they would be the only provider going forward. Scottish Golf were also criticised for the proposed "back door" implementation of their venue management system as part of this digital enhancement. The Secretary did however point out that initially Scottish golf are proposing to provide these facilities free of charge including a touch screen for the implementation of all scores. Members shall of course be updated on these as well as any other proposals as the year commences. Thank you - John Brodie, Secretary/Treasurer.

  • Reminder to all Members
  • Please note that over the past few weeks some members have failed to mark their own score on their partner's card. Failure to do this makes it impossible to double check scores and is therefore a disqualification offence. This will be rigidly enforced in all competitions.
