Seniors competition golf
As you will all have seen on the club V1 app there are a number of sections and club competitions that can be entered.
I explained in earlier updates that we as a section would not start playing full competition golf until August and the reasoning behind this decision.
I am pleased to let you know that we will have a full fixture list for August and September, I would like to say that I put a lot of work into the programme but all the thanks has to go to Bill Dark who has slaved hours to put it together, so there will be lots of trophies to play for in the coming months so get your bad rounds out of the way NOW.
I have posted the programme below with the date of the competition and also you will see the date you can enter via the club V1 system. The date in RED is the date you can add your name to the competition on the V1 system.
Your entry fee for all the competitions will be deducted from your club card when you book into the competition, the deduction will be from your bar account NOT winnings/shop account so please make sure you top up and have enough to cover your entry.
hopefully there will be no problems once we are up and running.
These have been trying times but I’m hoping we are nearly over the worst of it and we can get back to normal as soon as possible. I want to thank you all for you patience and understanding.

Update regarding seniors Golf.
As you are all probably aware the club are moving forward with competition golf.
As a section we decided that we would defer our competitions until the beginning of August. The committee are aware that although we are playing golf all of us want to be competing. There are a number of things within the V1 system that need to be updated and learnt by Pete Chamberlain and others administering the golf, not putting pressure on these people who are working hard to get things right by not having our own competitions at the moment means that any problems or training can be ironed out/done by the time we start in August. You will see from the V1 home hub page that we have a stableford competition on 4th August and the medal on 6th August.

5th June 2020
As promised following the management meeting last night I am in a position to give you an update.
There were various topics discussed and the management committee are continuing to try and plan the next steps for the club so although you may well see things going on at other clubs, this does not mean that they will necessarily happen at South Kyme. The main focus has to be the safety of the members.
At this time as far as the senior section is concerned we will stay as we are with members booking their own tee times and playing casual golf, I have given the reasons for this in previous updates.
I have advised both the Chairman and Pete Chamberlain of our decision at this time with the review date of 01/08/20. As we are using the Club V1 booking system if we decide to change the review date and are in a position to meet up as close to normal as possible, there is a two week lead time to add new bookings.
There are a couple of dates that could be significant as far as the clubhouse, shop and bar are concerned.
15th June – Retail business can re-open with proper safety measures in place. This would mean that the shop could re-open with drinks etc available, the club would announce the procedure for using the shop in due course, I would expect that card payment would be the preferred option as with everywhere else.
4th July – There is a POSSIBILITY that the bar could be open by this date with the appropriate safety measures in place and social distancing being observed. Please note this is not a set in stone date and any opening of the shop and bar will be purely down to the guidance from the government and the committee.
I would ask you all to be patient and continue your support of the club and the section. These are unprecedented times and trying to plan for an uncertain future is difficult, though I can assure you the club are doing everything they can to get us back to near normal as soon as possible.
3rd June 2020
Following the resumption of golf it has been decided to update you all on the current position regarding the Seniors Section.
As of today all seniors section related golf will be suspended, this includes matches, roll ups and competitions. For the time being it has been decided that we carry on as we are, booking your own tee time and playing in up to 4 balls.
The reasoning behind this is that there will be members of the club who are either on furlough or worse out of work completely, therefore it was felt by the committee that to block book tee times would be unfair on other members of the Golf club.
This decision has not been taken lightly and will be constantly under review by the committee. All of us want to be back to near normal but the over riding factor has to be the safety and wellbeing of our members.
There is a management meeting tomorrow (04/06/20) any updates will be posted on here and also on the seniors captains blog.
21st March 2020
In light of recent developments with Coronavirus it has been decided that the Seniors section will no longer meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the foreseeable future. The course will still be open for individuals to play. We will keep you informed of any changes to this decision.
19th March 2020
SENIORS MONTHLY DRAW
This is just to inform all senior members that there will be no draw for this month or for the foreseeable future.
If you have already paid for this month it will be carried forward to the next draw.
17th March 2020
In line with Government guidelines on restricted travel, we have decided to cancel all the seniors matches for 12 weeks up to the 6th June 2020.
Members are also asked to self isolate for the required period if they have any symptoms associated with the coronavirus.
AMENDMENT TO TROPHIES QUALIFICATION RULE
An amendment to the Trophies Qualification Rule introduced at the 2019 AGM was put forward at the 2020 AGM and after discussion it was agreed that the following change would apply:
“Any Seniors Member who has not played golf during the previous calendar year due to a medical issue may apply, in writing, to the Seniors’ Committee for dispensation to enter and win Seniors’ Trophy Competitions”.

2020/2021 PROGRAMME BOOKLET
As some of you have already noticed, the 2020/2021 Programme Booklet has the incorrect years on the front cover. It should read “MARCH 2020 TO FEBRUARY 2021” and not “MARCH 2019 TO FEBRUARY 2020”. My apologies for the error.
