Non Returns or NRs in Competition Golf
Since an incomplete card and a ‘No Return’ may have the effect of increasing a player’s handicap, the Men’s Club would be justified in refusing to accept a card or record a No Return when the player has walked in after playing only a few holes.Notable Performances Reminder

Notable Performances
Members are reminded of THEIR obligation to report all Notable Performances to their Home Club.

This is the player’s own responsibility.
Notable Performances include:
• All singles’ scores from Society Outings which equalled or bettered Standard Scratch Score.
• All 1st, 2nd or 3rd places in team events, eg, Classics, Scrambles, Foursomes(including Mixed), Fourballs, Matchplay, Fundraisers, etc.
Such results do not result in automatic handicap adjustments, but are taken into account for General Play purposes.Players who fail to report Notable Performances will be subject to disciplinary consideration(GUI recommendation for a first offence is suspension of handicap for 90 days).
Please use this link or the sheet on open Notice board in Men’s Locker Room to report all such results.

Pace of Play
The Men’s Club has received several complaints about the place of play during the men’s club competitions. Here are some helpful tips to aid you in speeding up your play.
• When you reach a green, leave your bag or trolley at the side of the green nearest the next tee.
• Line up your putt while others are putting and be ready to putt when it’s your turn.
• First player to putt out should be ready to replace the flag immediately the last putt is made.
• Don’t mark cards on or near the green. Leave the green without delay and mark the cards at the next tee – without delaying play.
• Encourage your playing partners to keep up with the group in front.
• Don’t let the slowest player to dictate the pace of play in your group. If someone is slowing things down, TELL HIM!
• Don’t delay play for conversation – WALK AS YOU TALK.
• Make sure you can locate your ball before you go searching for others.
• If you are delayed looking for a lost ball, call the players behind through when you realise you have to search for a ball – not after your 5 minutes are up!
