Update on Fixtures 2023

 After some considerable discussion at the last Committee meeting in December, 2022, the decision was made that the Meeting at Falkirk Tryst on the 10th August this season will now be a 4BBB.  Also, those members who would like to play, but do not have a partner, will be able to enter themselves and the Convenor will aim to match up individuals to create a team.

A Scratch Prize for this meeting is also being introduced in addition to the existing prizes.

As a trial to encourage our working ladies to play we have negotiated for this season, that the events at Falkirk Tryst and the Autumn meeting at Strathmore will have the addition of evening times.  

Falkirk will be from 5.04 -5.20 and Strathmore from 5.15-5.45.  All these new introductions will be reviewed at the end of the season, for 2024.


To date a good number of memberships have already been received by our Treasurer, but as a reminder  the closing date for membership is 28th February 2023.

The AGM was held at Ladybank Golf Club on Wednesday, 26 October 2022

 In advance of the Minutes being published, I would like to summarise the following Items which were agreed:

The Motion to change Item 12 of the Constitution was carried by twenty-seven votes to one:

Item 12 of the Constitution will now read:

Applicants for membership shall have a maximum Handicap Index of 30 under WHS Rules of Handicapping as Applied within GB&I (Scottish Version)

Please draw attention to this change to players in your club and other friends.   At the moment we do not have a waiting list.  

Payment of Annual Subscriptions

New and current members are asked to note that the Payment of Annual Subscriptions will be due from 1 January 2023 to 28 February 2023

Entry and Payment for Competitions – there will be a two-week period between Entry Date and Closing Dates for Meetings.   There will be reminders on the website and by email.   These dates will be published on the Fixture Card and the Website.

The Use of Buggies – We would like to draw your attention to Item 4 in our Condition of Competition on the Website which states 'A player may use ride-on transportation   This is subject to some conditions including insurance.   It should be noted this is only if Clubs allow buggies on their Course on the Day of the Competition.
