MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL - BAG TAG CHECKS

We still have a number of 'members' who have not renewed their membership by end-April as required - or who have left without informing the office.  Unfortunately, we have found some non-renewers still using the course. As members of a Private Members Club, it is in all our interests that anyone using our course and facilities - which we pay to maintain - should themselves pay the appropriate subscription or green fee.  Anyone not doing so is cheating the rest of us.  All members should share responsibility for ensuring that people they are playing with are current members or have paid the appropriate green fee. 

A number of members who HAVE renewed have not yet collected the updated 2018 sticker for their bag tag. Please do so as soon as possible from the office.

The Committees have agreed that they will institute random bag tag checks to ensure that everyone using our course has paid appropriately and is therefore entitled play. Anyone who has not paid will be required to pay the green fee or leave our course.

JUNIORS COUNTY TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

After a fantastic run in this year's Suffolk Juniors Team Championship, Diss GC sadly lost out to a strong team performance by Haverhill Juniors at Newton Green on 3rd June. With a team score of 101 stableford points Haverhill won the county trophy and now go on to represent Suffolk in the All England Final in August. But many congratulations to our team, Charlie Stammers (Captain), Harrison Groucott and Alex Lawrie for giving it their best shot on the day and for playing some great golf en route to the Final. Charlie, Harrison and Alex are pictured here with their Haverhill opponents before teeing off in the final.

"READY GOLF"


As members will know from the recent circular email issued by the Club Office, the General Committee has decided to introduce the R & A's new "Ready Golf" principles for all future Medal and Stableford competitions at our club (NB matchplay competitions are unaffected by this measure).

Taking care to employ common sense to ensure that playing out of turn does not endanger other players, "Ready Golf" for the purposes of our competitions includes the following measures:

-     Hitting a shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a challenging shot and is talking time to assess their options;
-     Shorter hitters playing first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait;
-     Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being able to play;
-     Hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball;
-     Putting out even if it means standing close to someone else's line;
-     Hitting a shot if a person who has just played from a greenside bunker is farthest from the hole but is delayed due to raking the bunker;
-    When a player's ball has gone over the back of the green, any player closer to the hole but chipping from the front of the green should play while the other player is having to walk to their ball and assess their shot;
-     Marking scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except that the first player to tee off marks their card immediately after teeing off
