Player Guidelines

 

BOOKINGS

Book in two weeks in advance wherever possible. Please print names legibly. Book in for yourself and your playing partners only, not for other groups. Otherwise, contact the Captain.

Check your allocated time one week in advance. Changes do occur.

Help prevent delays. Please arrive early, preferably 30 min. in advance of allocated tee off time.

If you are unable to attend, please advise the Captain as soon as possible, up to 7:30 pm on the day prior to the game. After that time, notify the playing venue between 8:00 and 9:00 am on the day of the game.

If you are on the waiting list, contact the Captain between 7:00 and 7:30 pm on the day prior to the game.

Members are reminded that they should not book at two courses and then decide on which course to play at on the day.

It has also noted that individuals are booking more than one group of players. Please do not book multiple groups. Duty Officers are unconcerned by an individual booking one group. ”The one they play in.” But will not allow multiple bookings on behalf of others.

CANCELLATIONS

It is a fact all of us at some time, have had to cancel our game for some reason or another.

It would be appreciated if members cancelled as soon as they are aware they cannot play. Accepted that that is not always possible, but that should be the exception not the norm.

Cancelling by a fellow player on the day to the duty officer causes a disruption to the smooth running of the day and also causes problems for the various club caterers who are given a specific number on Fridays, to enable them to purchase provisions.

FAILING TO TURN UP

Recently, we have had a very large number of members who have booked to play at a venue and then without any prior notification do not turn up. Apart from being disrespectful to fellow members doing that, creates big problems for catering at the host clubs. Our Captain signs off with the clubs on Sunday evenings on final numbers booked. When quite a few do not turn up the next day the club is copping the cost of the extra food purchased. This situation causes unrest between the clubs and the STVGA – which should not occur. The majority of our meals at clubs are prepared by members the Ladies Committees and they go out of their way to welcome us and feed us well. We, as STVGA members, have a responsibility to our organisation to ensure we do not show disrespect to each other and the clubs we attend. If this situation continues, your committee shall consider what actions need to be taken.
