Matters of Interest
Committee Meeting - Monday, 26th March 2018
GOOD BYE DCLGA - HELLO DEVON GOLF
Monday, 26th March 2018 saw the last of the DCLGA's committee meetings. After 118 years we have merged with Devon Golf and will be working for all golfers in Devon. Of course, we will continue to represent the ladies and their interests, but golf is evolving and we, too, have to move with the times.
The last committee meeting was convivial, a little tying up of loose ends, dealing with immediate tasks as we team up with Devon Golf and a nifty glass of Prosecco and some excellent cake - but not out of DCLGA expenses you understand!
CLUB DELEGATES' MEETINGS
We may be known as Devon Golf from 1st April but we ladies are continuing to maintain our strong links with Divisional Representatives from north, east, south and west and keeping in close contact with Club Delegates. Each area is holding a Club Delegates' meeting and Wendy Stanbury and Yvonne Alford, Directors of the newly merged Devon Golf Ltd (DGL) will be there to talk about the future and how you ladies want things to happen.
North - Meeting to be arranged
East - Monday, 23rd April - East Devon Golf Club - 11am
South - Friday, 27th April - Churston Golf Club - 10.30am
West - Thursday, 19th April - Thurlestone Golf Club - 10.30am
COURSE RATING & REFEREES
Devon Golf needs you!
We need you to help with Course Rating, an interesting occasional job and we are looking for assistance. Please contact Philip Lee on firstname.lastname@example.org - 01392 250099 or 07527 526896.
Equally, referees are thin on the ground. You know, the people you don't notice when playing your County competitions but who are there when needed. If you think you have the skills (or would like to know more about becoming a referee), please contact Lesley Pascoe - email@example.com - 01626 202792 or 07870700057.
So some things will change but slowly and for the better. The new Devon Golf website is underway but the current DCLGA site remains until the new one appears.
Competition entries are unchanged on the DCLGA website but, on the new Devon Golf website it will be online entries only with the added option of being able to choose your own tee time. We are aware that there are a few who are not able to access a computer but no doubt there will be a friend at the club only too willing to help. Processing cheques is very time consuming and our Competitions' Secretaries Kate Field and Colleen Skornia have been stalwarts but the demands on their time are huge. We want to con them into staying in the role a bit longer........
From the 1st April the Blue Pages will no longer apply. We will be bound by the articles of Devon Golf (available on the new website). However, the Pink Pages (Competitions) and Advisory Notes for Captains (Yellow Pages) will still be relevant and will be on the new Devon Golf website.
