Club Committee Meeting Report - Main Points of Interest for Members Information.
The following are the main points arising  from the Committee Meeting  that took place at Folke on  Wednesday 14 August.   A copy of the minutes will be posted on the Club Notice Board.

a. A ball in the general area is not entitled to free relief (other than when covered elsewhere in the local rules) if it comes to rest where a rock/stone interferes with the play of the ball. This includes any ball on the new mound on the 5th fairway.

b. A ball lying beyond the gate or over the ditch mound on the left of the 3rd hole is out of bounds even if the white marker posts are not visible. This is stated on the local rules printed on the back of the score card and it was not considered necessary to put up a notice reminding members of this.

c. When penalty relief is taken for a ball in a red hazard area the ball must be dropped within two club lengths of where it last crossed the boundary of the hazard and NOT the nearest point of relief plus two club lengths. This is clearly stated in the Rules of Golf and it was not considered necessary to put up a notice reminding members of this.

d. A notice will be put on the board reminding members of what the rules say about the permissible dropping area when taking free relief from an artificially surfaced path

a) HARDY A CAPTAIN: They were only able to raise a team of seven for the away match against Highcliffe and the team lost 6 ½ - 1 ½.

b) HARDY B CAPTAIN: The team lost the ¼ final match at home to Yeovil 3 ½ to 1 ½ .Simon thanks everyone who played in all the matches, it was a great effort by everyone. The next matches are against Queens Park and Canford School both at home this coming weekend.

c) 3CL CAPTAIN: The team beat Wincanton 3 ½ to 1 ½ away and are now first in the league with only 2 points separating the top 3 teams! The next match is away to Wheathill on 24 August.

d) SENIORS CAPTAIN: The team beat Cannington away 5-1 and also beat Wincanton away in the annual Ryder Cup match 9 ½ to 8 ½ . A great effort by all players.

e) CLUB CAPTAIN:  Kevin thanked everyone who made it for his Captain’s day. Conditions were bad but not as bad as they could have been and the day went very well with £150 raised for Youth with Cancer. He said it was a great day for him, thanks.
