An Incredible Feat & Incredibly Aching Feet To Raise Funds For MacMillan Cancer Support

Over the past few months St Audry’s Golf Club has been most fortunate to welcome a number of new Members. A couple of these are Stuart Bailey & Tom Norton who on Saturday 27th June pushed themselves to the limit all in the great cause of raising funds for MacMillan Cancer Support.

They were part of MacMillan’s “Longest Day Golf Challenge” which for them meant that they’d be playing in just one day 54 holes at St Audry’s & having a change of scenery by slipping in 18 holes over at Ufford Park! 72 holes in just one day & all this without the aid of buggies. Looks like St Audry’s have come up with a pair of genuine heroes.  Please see below for a report from the guys themselves:

****************************************************************

“Because of the Corona virus lockdown & the grim figures for charity donations at an all-time low with people unable to get the cancer support they need, we felt that we needed to do something now. Whilst the country is in lockdown, cancer doesn’t stop and without Macmillan Support many sufferers wouldn’t get the help and support they need and deserve.

The challenge itself was very hard, as even before we finished the first 9 holes we had a golf trolley collapse, the heavens opened and we spent most of the day in strong sideways rain. However getting an email while playing saying we’d had new donations certainly kept us motivated in the wind and rain. After 49,651 steps, 27.79KM and 14 hours of constant playing we feel proud that we achieved it and managed to raise almost £500 in a month of fundraising and hopefully we can still get a few more donations”.

****************************************************************

So, dear & generous Members of St Audry’s GC, now that the lads have completed their gruelling challenge, that’s their challenge to us. Adding a donation couldn’t be easier. Just click on the link below & follow the instructions. No pressure but Captain Tom raised over £32 million!! 😉

Course Update 05/06/20

June 5, 2020

Hello Again

This week we have been looking carefully at introducing three and four ball games at St Audrys but we are not in a position to proceed at present. Rest assured that we are very conscious that some families want to play together and we are looking at how this can be done.

As play remains restricted to two ball games of social golf for the time being, we have been looking at how we can maximise opportunities to play by enabling members to identify and book a nine hole slot.

A new style booking sheet will become live on first thing on Sunday 7 June. If you have booked a slot after that time, Tony or Juliet Rhodes (01394 380020) will transfer your booking to the new system and be in touch if it is necessary to clarify your start time. The points to note are:

You are no longer required to provide a contact telephone number when booking a tee time.

The pace of play for each nine holes is still timed at 1 hour 30 minutes (10 minutes per hole).

Tee times must be booked and are restricted to one game ahead. You must remove your name if you find that you can no longer fill the slot, even if your withdrawal is very close to the booked time.

HOW TO BOOK

The new booking sheet is colour coded with the front nine in blue and the back nine in red

If you (and/or) a partner wish to play 9 holes only you will need to put your name(s) EITHER in the BLUE slot OR the RED slot depending on which tee time you require.

If you (and/or) a partner wish to play 18 holes you will need to put your name(s) in BOTH the BLUE slot AND the RED slot.

If you are a lone golfer and would like a partner, enter Partner Welcome in the empty slot as an invitation for someone else to play with you.

If you have any problems or questions about the new booking sheet please phone Rob Haste .

HIRING A BUGGY

It will be possible to hire a club golf buggy starting from Monday morning, 8 June

Golf Buggies must be booked and paid for on-line using the links on the booking page in the members section of the website.

Each buggy may only be hired once each day and must be returned before 6pm.

The procedure is as follows:

  1. Access the golf buggy keys which are kept in the key box mounted on the left-hand side of the players’ entrance lobby – the code is the same as that used for the entrance door code. If you do not know what this is you must email staudrysclub@btinternet.com in the first instance.
  2. Close the key box and rotate the combination to a random number.
  3. Clean all the surfaces you will touch using the wipes provided
  4. When you have finished your round, reverse and park up your buggy
  5. Clean all the surfaces you have touched using the wipes provided
  6. Put the buggy on charge.
  7. Replace the key in the key box, rotating the combination to a random number.
  8. Take all the wipes you have used home for disposal

Should you encounter any problems with the above instructions please email us to let us know – your feedback is always welcome.

Both booking sheets can be accessed in the members section of the website.

OTHER MATTERS

Social Distancing is still required at all times. It has been disappointing to have received reports that not all members are returning to the car park via the tarmac path alongside the road in order to return to the car park.

An increasing amount of litter is being found on the course, particularly tissues. Please ensure that you take all your litter home.

Our Play Safe Stay Safe document is currently being updated. The current version states that no visitors are allowed on the course and this remains the case except for juniors who cannot play on their own and must be accompanied by an adult until they are 12 years old.

Regards

Judy Gowen

Chairman

Club Update 30/05/20

May 30, 2020

Hello Again
I know that many of you will be aware that England Golf have now advised that play could be extended to three and four ball games with effect from 1 June and that competitions may be re-introduced. Whilst these are great steps forward, every club will have to work out how to implement these changes before they can be introduced whilst at the same time continuing to comply with all the other restrictions that remain in place.
St Audrys Management Committee is looking at these points as a matter of urgency, but for the time being, play remains restricted to two ball games of social golf. Tee times must be booked and are restricted to one game ahead. Please remove your name if you find that you can no longer fill the slot, even if withdrawal is very close to the booked time.

One change that we will introduce with effect from Monday 1st June is that members may play with a guest FROM 2PM ONWARDS subject to the following:.
• The member must play with their guest.
• The member must book a tee time and provide the guest’s name and telephone number on the booking sheet (track and trace).
• The member must pay the appropriate Green Fee via the online payment system.
• The member must ensure the guest is aware of the Stay Safe, Play Safe guidance
We are also planning to re-introduce the use of the club buggies with effect from Monday 8th June. Further information will follow, but the requirements will be that:
• A separate booking sheet must be completed once this is added to the members section of the website
• The buggy hire must be paid for via the online payment system
• To comply with social distancing, only one player may use the buggy during the round (unless the second golfer is from the same household)
• Each player will be responsible for cleaning the buggy before using it – wipes will be provided in each buggy for this purpose.
Please note that you do not have to login to PayPal, you can choose to pay by debit or credit card and click the PayPal Guest checkout option.
Social Distancing
Social Distancing is still required at all times. I take this opportunity to remind members that:
• Every game must start at the first tee.
• The narrow path that leads from the car park to the course continues to be ‘One Way’.
• When playing 18 holes and crossing from the 9th green to the 10th tee, you may cross the road and use the path to the 10th tee. When you have completed your round, ALL PLAYERS MUST TURN RIGHT and use the tarmac path alongside the road in order to return to the car park.
• Each nine hole round should be paced at one hour 30 minutes (10 minutes per hole) and you must not invite a faster game through.
Clubhouse
The clubhouse continues to be open from 8am to 6pm each day for access to the toilets only. The toilets are being cleaned daily but please leave them in the state that you would expect to find them. Wash your hands and use the sanitizer provided. Please do not use the locker rooms or go upstairs.
Regards
Judy Gowen
Chairman
