We play at 8 different golf courses/venues throughout the season, courses/venues are varied throughout Nottingham, Derby, Lincoln & Leics.
These games are played in Stableford format, full handicap allowance, out of the 8 games over the season the best 5 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.

If we play at a members own course, he/she will be able to ask the course if it is possible to play with the society at no cost, this will need to be pre agreed prior to the day of play.
At each game we will run a cash prize table (£5.00 per person, this is optional, you have to be in it to win it), 3 cash prizes, winner, runner up & nearest the pin, nearest the pin will always be the stroke index 18 on the course played, if this hole is par 3 then it will be nearest in one shot, if this hole is par 4 then it will be nearest in 2 shots.
