Yes vote for Saturday 2-Tee trial
Our membership has overwhelmingly voted yes to holding a 2-tee trial during January’s Saturday competitions.
The pro shop received 117 forms, 87 (76%) were in favour of the trial, 27 (24%) against, with three forms left blank.
- The 1st tee will be available for members from 6.30-8.22am and 10.46am – 12.38pm, providing 120 tee times on the 1st
- The 10th tee will be available for members from 6.30– 8.06am – providing 52 tee times.
The reduced time span will provide a buffer in case there is a delay in starting times which could result from starting on a par 3.
This trail accommodates a field of 172, which far exceeds the largest summer fields in recent years. It also provides 112 tee times during the cooler hours of the day.
The 10th tee will be available for social play from 10.46am – 12.22pm. These 52 tee times are available at a more attractive time for social players and will potentially result in increased patronage and revenue from this important sector of our clientele.
Our aim is to increase overall member satisfaction with the trial, so we encourage your feedback and suggestions during this time so we can assess its effectiveness.
Members must be ready to play at the booked starting time and at a prompt pace for this trial to work. If successful, for the majority of players, the 2-tee system will be used during summer months (Dec-Feb).
The timesheets available from Friday 21 December at 7pm will use the time slots outlined above.
