The Chase Golf Club
Resumption of Golf
Following the lifting of some restrictions by the Scottish Government, golf has been allowed to resume under strict guidelines.
South Ayrshire Council has introduced it's flexible membership scheme to allow players to purchase credits for play. However, due
to longer tee time intervals and restrictions on numbers per tee time, the scheme has been oversubscribed and indeed there is now a waiting
list to join. As of 01/07/20, I can confirm that 60% of the Chase members have been able to join the flexi scheme with at least 6 others
on the waiting list.
Currently, play is in either 2 or 3 balls depending on the number of households involved and is for Match play only. However, I can confirm
that SAC and the R&A/Scottish Golf have provided a blueprint which may allow competition golf to resume. I shall be circulating a working
paper to Committee with a veiw to the possible resumption of a limited competitive program once the Chase Inn re-opens. As always the priority
of the Committee is the Health and Safety of our members and the need for a clear and consistent message during these unprecedented times.
Following further guidance from the Scottish Government on 2/7/20 and consultation with Stephen Kelly, it may be possible that the Chase Inn
can open from the middle of July although this will be dependent on staff availability and the completion of the current re-furbishment of the
Chase Inn being finished on time. I shall be emailling all members with any details as and when they become available. STAY SAFE and enjoy your golf.
Amendment to procedure
Following 2 incidents where a member was left without a game during the December Medal Competition, the following procedure must
now be followed by all players who pull out of a game after the draw has been made. It is now a requirement that the player pulling
out contacts EVERYONE PLAYING IN THE GROUP to inform them. This should happen as a common courtesy but clearly has not been.
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.
