Baird Cup 8th May
Competition is open on VMS, you must enter if you’re intending to play. BRS timesheet opens on the 30th at 7pm. As per previous email, your tee time & group may change slightly.
These are back in use from Wednesday 28th. Please ensure cards are completed correctly and clearly with: players name, competition name, date, Course Handicap and signed. At this time clearly print the name of the player who has verified your score. Remember to enter your score on the iPad in the club then put your card in the box.
An iPad is now available in the lounge for competition entry and for recording your score. We will continue to accept scores submitted via the phone app if you’d prefer, however please ensure your score is entered and confirmed via the app or by using the iPad in the club. Confirming your score means that your score has been sent to Scottish Golf, this is important as it’ll be processed in the evening and your HI adjusted accordingly for the following day. Any scores recorded on the phone app will show on the iPad. If you encounter problems with the app on the course, pop into the club after your round and complete your card.
General Play scores should be submitted via the app or the iPad.
Matchplay – draws & app messaging
Entries to the knockout competitions close on Monday 3rd.
Entry to The St Andrews Trophy (pairs) will open on Saturday 1st May at 7pm. It’s restricted to 32 players and entrants will be randomly paired.
The folders in the locker room have been used for many years to arrange our matchplay ties. As we couldn’t use the folder method last year, our only option was to let members contact each other directly. This proved to be very successful with a higher percentage of ties being played compared to previous years. This year, we would like to do the same which involves the SG app.
If you haven’t already noticed, the app has a Contacts section where members of the club are listed. On the home page select GolfsApp which provides: text, email and phone options. The setting to show your details can be found in More > My Personal Data, enable Add to Venue Directory. Whilst you’re in there check your details and fill in any blanks. Another useful setting is Receive Push Notifications which is on the My App page. If ties aren’t played then proof of communication provided will be used to determine who goes through.
For those of you who don’t have access to the app then Sports will provide contact details if and when required.
Tournament Information Centre (TIC)
This feature of VMS is useful for: live scoring, results, fixtures etc.
To achieve an equal balance in tee time courtesy, we have obtained times on Tuesdays when the LGS ladies have their times. Any unused times will be released on the Friday.
Neither St Andrews GC or Carnoustie GC have been able to secure a booking on their championship courses for this year’s competition and since we’re unable to play the format we’re used to, the three clubs have agreed to cancel this year’s competition and plan for 2022.
Please email us at email@example.com if you have any handicap issues or queries and we’ll do our best to help.
Yours in Gouff
