MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL - BAG TAG CHECKS

We still have a number of 'members' who have not renewed their membership by end-April as required - or who have left without informing the office.  Unfortunately, we have found some non-renewers still using the course. As members of a Private Members Club, it is in all our interests that anyone using our course and facilities - which we pay to maintain - should themselves pay the appropriate subscription or green fee.  Anyone not doing so is cheating the rest of us.  All members should share responsibility for ensuring that people they are playing with are current members or have paid the appropriate green fee. 

A number of members who HAVE renewed have not yet collected the updated 2018 sticker for their bag tag. Please do so as soon as possible from the office.

The Committees have agreed that they will institute random bag tag checks to ensure that everyone using our course has paid appropriately and is therefore entitled play. Anyone who has not paid will be required to pay the green fee or leave our course.

ARCHIE MOORE

Club Captain, Dave Mould and Club Chairman, Roger Greenacre have asked us to post the following joint message on the Club Website thanking Archie Moore for his many years of sterling service to our club:

Archie Moore has decided to step down from his Committee positions at the Club. Archie has been involved with the Committees running the club for some 13 years and was also Captain of the Club in 2012 and 2016. We are most grateful for all the dedication he has given and for continuing to help behind the scenes.

DGC JUNIORS GOLF

JUNIORS COUNTY TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Building on their success in the previous rounds (see report below), our Juniors came away with an exciting victory on count-back over Thorpeness Juniors in a very close and tense match on Sunday 13th May. Captain, Charlie Stammers and Spencer Humphrey Moore returned a creditable 32 points each, whilst Harrison Groucott came in with the best score of 33.  With both teams level on 97 points, the outcome of the match was decided on count-back with Diss winning by a single point!

Well played, guys! And now for the Championship Final, to be played on Sunday 3rd June at Newton Gren Golf Club against Ufford Park (first tee off at 1.30pm). Diss will be represented by Charlie Stammers (Captain), Harrison Groucott and Jay Turvey. We hope that as many members as possible will travel to Newton Green GC to support Charlie, Harrison and Jay in their quest to complete what has been a series of fantastic performances in this competition. The winners of the Championship Final will go on to represent Suffolk in the England Golf Junior Champion club tournament at Frilford Heath GC on 16th-17th August. 

COUNTY COMPETITION - QUARTER-FINALS

Led by Captain Charlie Stammers, our Juniors team were victorious against Bury St Edmunds juniors on 28th April with a score 114 points to 80 points. A return of 43 points by Harrison Groucott was a fantastic performance, whilst Captain-Reliable, Charlie Stammer returned 37 points, with a steady round by Spencer Humphrey-Moore with 34 points, completed the rout. Now onward to the semi-finals at a date and venue to be decided. 

"READY GOLF"


As members will know from the recent circular email issued by the Club Office, the General Committee has decided to introduce the R & A's new "Ready Golf" principles for all future Medal and Stableford competitions at our club (NB matchplay competitions are unaffected by this measure).

Taking care to employ common sense to ensure that playing out of turn does not endanger other players, "Ready Golf" for the purposes of our competitions includes the following measures:

-     Hitting a shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a challenging shot and is talking time to assess their options;
-     Shorter hitters playing first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait;
-     Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being able to play;
-     Hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball;
-     Putting out even if it means standing close to someone else's line;
-     Hitting a shot if a person who has just played from a greenside bunker is farthest from the hole but is delayed due to raking the bunker;
-    When a player's ball has gone over the back of the green, any player closer to the hole but chipping from the front of the green should play while the other player is having to walk to their ball and assess their shot;
-     Marking scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except that the first player to tee off marks their card immediately after teeing off
