Interim Playing Rules **Updated**
June 29 2020 - The Interim Playing Rules have been updated once more. The link below takes you to the rules page, you may need to login. The new rules can also be found on the COVID19 page when you login. One major change is payment of competition fee by bank transfer - please do not pay for roll-ups though, only competitions currently require a fee. Please read and digest the new document. The rules apply immediately.
By the Autumn we shall all be familiar with new terms such as 'Handicap Index' and 'Slope Index'. Until then the club will be publishing (hopefully useful) introductory information about the World Handicap System (WHS) on this website. We have made a start, so we urge everyone to view the page under 'WHS' in the member's area of this site. Over the next few months we shall add more information as the club gears up for the change.
We are delighted to share an article written by one of our junior members Lucy Bamford.
In the article Lucy talks about the support that she received from the lady members at our club which encouraged her to continue playing golf when she was learning the game.
Lucy continues to play regularly with the ladies and it is a pleasure to see how her game has improved since she joined ELGC
