The Notts County Golf Society has been formed to offer all people that are supporters of Notts County Football Club an opportunity to gather on a monthly basis to play a round of social golf with an element of competition.
Membership is open to all adult, junior, male or female,handicaps will be issued in accordance with society rules.
There is an annual subsription of £25.00 per person, this is for the upkeep of trophy’s, web site and the Handicapmaster system etc.
Each season we play 10 qualifying games,these games are for the 1862 trophy, the 1st game is in March with the last game in October. Qualifying matches will be played either on a Sunday or on a Wednesday, tee-off times vary to allow for daylight conditions throughout the season. At the beginning of the season we start to tee-off in the morning then as we get into the summer we tee-off after lunch, then back to mornings as Autumn approaches. We play at 10 different golf courses/venues throughout the season, courses/venues are varied throughout Notts, Derbys, Lincs & Leics.
These games are played in Stableford format,full handicap allowance, out of the 10 games over the season the best 6 scores will count. Points are then awarded to form a table based on your finishing position for each match.
All scores and handicapping are done through the online Handicapmaster system, of which members can log in and view at anytime.
On match days players should be there 45 minutes before advertised 1st tee off time.
The draw for the playing order will be made 30 minutes before 1st tee time.
Meals are sometimes included in the price, either before the game,after the game or both, These details are in the fixture list.
The price for the day is the price that the society is charged.
At each game we will run a cash prize table (£5.00 per person), 3 cash prizes, winner, runner up & nearest the pin, nearest the pin is the shortest yardage par 3 on the course played,with no winner a roll over will be carried forward to the next game(s) until it is won.
In addition there will be a prize for the best front 9 and the best back 9 scores, donated by the society, these 2 prizes cannot be won by either the overall winner or runner up.
A singles competition will be played each season and this will played by matchplay rules with full handicap allowance,which is the handicap you are holding at the time of each round, this competition is free to enter.
The draw will be made about 4 weeks before the 1st round. Between each round there will be a 4/5/6 week interval to play the games.
In order to conclude the competition, dates for each round must be strictly adhered to.
Venues are by mutual decision between the two players and costs will be shared.
The date and venue of the final will be decided by the society and the greens fees will be payed for by the society on this day.
No singles games are permitted to be played on society qualifying days, they have to be played separately.
Those members that are on the “overnighter” can be accommodated to play a singles match at this venue, due to this being a non qualified 2 day event.
As from 2016 season the singles competition will be named THE MIKE EDWARDS SINGLES SHIELD.
