May Medal - Sat 19 September 2020

Please find the results for Saturdays May Medal on 19th September 2020.

CSS was 70 with 143 players.

Course was again in tremendous condition. There are a couple of Medal competitions left ( Sept & Oct ) with the winners in each section qualifying for the Medal Finals ( Kinnaird Trophy ) on 10th Oct.

Murray Cup - 9 HOLE COURSE
=====================
One of the outstanding competitions to complete this year is the Murray Cup, this goes to person with the best 2 rounds on the 9 hole course over the year.

Because of the current environment there have been very few entrants, therefore, to increase entry for this competition we have decided to allow members to play as many times as they like between now and the end of October.
To enter please book a time on the 9 hole course and inform the starter ( Duncan ) of your intention to play. For each time you play the entry fee is £1. Members can play in 4 balls if they wish. The Competition is played off the Medal ( White ) Tees.

As we aren't allowed to pass scorecards back to M&H then entrants should complete a scorecard and take a picture then email their score to the M&H (ar028m8442@ntlworld.com).

Provost Trophy - Sat 12 September 2020

Scottish Golf have fixed the bug which caused our database to crash and delayed the Provost Trophy results.

Please find attached the results from Saturday.

Please note that because of the system limitations any 2's prizes are allocated to the player who actually got the 2 but I'm sure the people who got the 2's will share their winnings with their partners. Please name & shame if they don't :-) lol.

As mentioned the 2 top teams were
Paul McFarlane & Ian Smith 63
Graham Knox & Alistair Campbell 63

These 2 teams will play in the Provost Trophy Matchplay Final.

All the semi-finals in the matchplay competitions have now been completed and the line up for finals day is :

SUNDAY 20th September
=================
11:30 - Challenge Cup - Mark Cannon v Alex Roy
11:45 - Reid Rose Bowl - Sandy McLean v Paul McAulay
12:00 - Seniors Championship - Paul McFarlane v Crawford Rae
12:15 - Whinhill Seniors - Edward Spence v Peter Gallagher
12:30 - Challenge Quaich - George Anderson v Chris McAulay


Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

Apologies for the delay in getting the Provost Trophy results posted. There is a bug in the system as the system crashes every time I run the results program. Scottish Golf will have their Development team look at this tomorrow.

However we do know the 2 top teams from yesterday were Paul McFarlane & Ian Smith 63 and Graham Knox & Alistair Campbell 63

These 2 teams will play in the Provost Trophy Matchplay Final. Paul McFarlane is already in a Final so the Provost Trophy Final will need to be scheduled away from Finals day ( next Sunday ).

The Matchplay finals for Next Sunday are as follows:
SUNDAY 20th September ( Tee Booked from 11:00 to give the matchplay some room ).

11:30 - Challenge Cup - Mark Cannon v David Anderson or Alex Roy
11:45 - Reid Rose Bowl - Sandy McLean v Paul McAulay
12:00 - Seniors Championship - Paul McFarlane v David MacFarlane or Crawford Rae
12:15 - Whinhill Seniors - Edward Spence v Peter Gallagher
12:30 - Challenge Quaich - George Anderson v Chris McAulay

Feel free to come up and watch as I'm sure there will be some exciting games.

Thanks

April Medal & Spring Meeting - Saturday 5 September 2020

CSS was 70 with 143 players.

Course was in tremendous condition with faster greens probably catching a few players out. This was reflected in the scoring being a bit higher and CSS going up.
The Results are attached and can also be viewed in the app.

PLAYERS NOT ALL COMPLETING CARDS
===========================
14 Players still didn't get signed cards completed.
If a player doesn't have a signed card then we will start to Disqualify players unless they have informed the starter ( Duncan ) or the M&H by email ( Alex email - ar028m8442@ntlworld.com ) that there was an issue with the iPAD system and have confirmed what the issue is.

Everyone SHOULD complete on the iPAD unless you have full confirmation that the player marking your scorecard has signed your card on their phone.

Issues we have seen with the iPAD is that people are saying that the iPAD was down, ie Screen was blank.
Please note the screen will go blank after a period of time and it needs to be activated by pressing the button on the RHS of the iPAD.
I have seen some players touching the screen expecting it to come up however as stated before there is a Round button on the RHS of the SCREEN ( at the cutout ) which needs to be pressed, just touching the screen won't waken the system.

Also, please remember when you get the option to sign on your phone you are actually marking and signing someone else's card not your own.
You need to check that the person marking your card has completed it and fully signed it, if they haven't then both of you will need to complete it on the iPAD.


GREENOCK OPEN - INVITATION TO GUESTS
============================
Although we are not having a Members Guest Competition this year there is still an opportunity for Members to Invite guests to play in the Greenock Open.
The GREENOCK OPEN STROKEPLAY will be played on Sunday 13th Sept.

If you wish to invite guests please provide M&H ( reply to this email ) or Duncan with the name(s) of your guests. Please provide
NAME
CLUB
email address
CDH #( if they know it )
Preferred Starting time.

These details are required to allow M&H to create an entry in VMS for visitors so that their score can be entered on the Computer.

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

M&H Update on Fourball Competitions

CHANGE OF FIXTURE TO PROVOST TROPHY QUAL
==================================
Please note that we have been informed that we are not allowed to play Greensome competitions due to CoVid rules ( ie, no sharing of golf balls ), therefore the planned Navy Cup competition scheduled for Saturday 12th Sept will now be the Provost Trophy Qualifier ( 4 ball better ball ). As we do not have time this year to complete the full matchplay the top 2 teams in the qualifying will play off on Finals Day ( Sun 20th Sept ) for the Trophy.

Next Saturday ( 12th September ) we are playing the Provost Trophy Qualifier. This is a 4 Ball Better Ball competition. All competitors will receive 90% of their handicap as a Stroke Allowance.

The Entry for this competition opens @ 7PM tonight. All members who intend to play in this will require to enter. You can enter yourself and your partner and select your time and if you are planning to play with another couple they too will need to enter and take the same time slot.

I had hoped that one person could take all 4 slots but I cannot see any way to do this. I know this may cause some issues but if anyone has any problems please email me and we can hopefully get the games aligned correctly before next week.

I suggest members take a card with them for scoring and I will send out a typical example of a Scorecard for 4 ball Better Ball nearer the time.

As we do not have time this year to complete the full matchplay the top 2 teams in the qualifying will play off on Finals Day ( Sun 20th Sept ) for the Trophy.

REMINDER: PLEASE ENSURE YOUR ACCOUNT IS TOPPED UP.

Medal - Wed 2 Sept 2020

Please find the results for yesterdays Wednesday Medal on 02nd September 2020.

CSS was 72 ( Reduction only ) due to the very inclement weather.

Only a few brave souls went out on the terrible weather so I made it a single section. The Results are attached and can also be viewed in the app. There were no handicap revisions.

REMINDER: PLEASE ENSURE YOUR ACCOUNT IS TOPPED UP OTHERWISE YOU MAY MISS OUT IF YOU HAVE A SCORE OR A 2 - as the system wil assume you have not entered the sweep and 2s. You can check on the app if you have paid. Go into the Competition and it will say ENTERED - PAID. If it doesn't say Paid please top up your account.

Please remember the following competitions are already open for entry.
9 Hole Stableford - Friday 4th Sept

I have also attached the results of the 'One Club One Baw' competition which was run over the 9 hole course on Sunday. This was a fun event which attracted 30 players and it appears 18 made it round with their single ball. Well Done.
Thanks to Ian Beaton for Organising this.

VERIFIED SCORES
============
More good progress made on this with only 12 people not having a Signed Card.
PLEASE REMEMBER If you NR you still need to finalise your card with Signatures.
Thanks.

TIP FOR iPAD to complete card - Log on to the computer and click Submit Scores button ( assuming it is Blue and active ). If it is isn't Blue ( ie it is Grey ) then you need to click on the competition, ensure you have checked in and then click on Scoring Button. This will then take you into the scorecard. Once you have ensured the card is correct then you and the Marker need to sign it on the iPAD. Once both signatures are on there the Submit button will appear.


Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

A couple of missing updates
===================
Apologies that I forgot to mention on Saturday that the winner of the Overall Captains Day was Alan Young on BIH with Ben Peterson as RU.

Also, I forgot to mention that last Wednesday Stevie Gordon recorded a hole in one at the 3rd.

Congratulations guys.



Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

Willow Trophy - Wed 19 Aug 2020

Please find attached the results for yesterdays Jun Willow Trophy. CSS was 69 with 134 Entries. The Results can also be viewed in the app. There is also a handicap revision file provided.

FINAL REMINDER
============
Anyone not having a fully verified ( signed ) card will be Disqualified. ( Unless there is a good reason for not being able to complete on the iPAD ).

As mentioned in previous emails, we now have an iPAD in the clubhouse for finalising the scores. Therefore everyone should ensure they logon to the system as per the instructions provided, ensure their scores are correct and then sign their card, and the marker should also be able to sign ( use the Stylus provided - available in the pro shop and please retain for future ).

For yesterdays competition the following people did not have a signed scorecard and would normally be DQ'd, however I am allowing a few rounds to bed system in.
Can these folks please let me know the reasons why they weren't able to get a signed card. If you don't get the option to sign on your phone then you need to complete on the iPAD.
Please note people who NR should also complete on the iPAD and can sign both boxes as you need to sign both boxes before the Submit button appears.
(Can I also ask players who are entering an NR to still enter a 0 (zero ) for all the holes they don't play. )

HG McLennan Rd 2 - Sat 15 Aug 2020

Please find attached the results for yesterdays HG McLennan R2. CSS was 69 with 167 Entries.
The Results can also be viewed in the app and a handicap revision file is provided.

The overall winner of the HG Mclennan Trophy was Daniel Fitzpatrick on 129 ( 62 & 67 ).
Runner Up was James Maxwell on 134 ( 70 & 64 ) virtue of best 2nd Round. Congratulations Daniel welcome back.

As per my email on Friday, going forward every player must have a SIGNED digital scorecard otherwise they will be disqualified ( even NRs ). There were 37 people without a verified card on Saturday, I am currently allowing these until we have bedded the new VI computer in but will be looking for everyone in future to have a completed card. This also saves the M&H committee hours of work chasing down individuals to see why their scores aren't in the system, which also delays the results being published.

There is now an iPad (known as VI ) in the Hallway next to the Fruit Machine which will enable all members to finish off their cards and can even get their playing partner to sign too, ( This can be safely done by Using a Stylus which can be obtained from Duncan, or if you decide to use your finger please sanitise before and after use as gel is available either beside the iPad or next to the bar )

See attached instructions for completing this.

If anyone has any problems getting into the VI system, it maybe because their Date of Birth may not be properly recorded in the system, so it may be worth checking ( even for those who are able to get a digitally signed scorecard on their phone ).

Some people didn't realise that the iPad will go blank when not in use. To Wake up the system touch gently on the RHS cutout button part of the screen.

Other issues that came up on Saturday were that the Submit Scores button on the VI wasn't coloured Blue. If it hasn't turned Blue then usually that means the player hasn't checked in correctly on the app. If this is the case then Select the competition you are playing in then select the Yellow Scoring Button, this should then ask you to verify your handicap and take you into your scorecard.

If anyone has any issues and has been unable to SIGN for their score (or NR ) then please let me know ASAP and we will look to fix this.



Thanks

Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

Willow Trophy - Wed 12 Aug 2020

Please find attached the results for yesterdays Aug Willow Trophy.
CSS was 69 with 140 Entries. The Results can also be viewed in the app.
There is also a handicap revision file provided.

Can I just remind players to ALWAYS check their scores are entered into the system at the end of their round.
Once you believe your scores have been entered you can check by going into:

Comps - Select the Competition - Click on Scores - Find your name and click on it. This will show your scores for the 18 holes.

If there are any discrepancies or scores missing please contact M&H asap. If you cannot check it for any reason please ask the Starter to check for you or anyone with the app.

Can I also ask players who are entering an NR to still enter a 0 (zero ) for all the holes they don't play.

Also please remember to top up your account otherwise you may miss out as the system will assume you haven't entered the Sweep & 2s.

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor

Club Ch'Ship Semi Final - Fri 31 July 2020

Tonight was the Semi Finals of the Club Championship.

In usual Greenock weather whilst the rest of the UK were reaching record temperatures we had Thunder, Lightning and downpours !! Despite this we still managed to complete the ties.

Both games went to the wire with Paul Dorrian winning the top match 1up, but only after a brave fightback from Riccardo Di Murro .

In the bottom match David Macfarlane and Graeme McClellan swapped holes over the course of the round and came to the last all square. Both players had a 50 foot putt on the last and both managed to 2 putt in trying circumstances. Down the first extra hole and with the pressure mounting Graeme put the ball in the bunker only for David to follow suit.
While the players were approaching the green a couple of foxes appeared, one went into the bunker and stole Graeme's ball ( if anyone finds a Titleist 2 with teethmarks !! )
After replacing the ball both players played out the hole with David managing to win to set up a replay of the 2015 final with Paul.


Result
=====
Ricardo Dimurro lost 1down to Paul Dorrian
David Macfarlane won 1up over Graeme Mclellan

The first round of the Final is scheduled for 8AM tomorrow morning and 2nd round at 12:30PM.

If any games look like holding up the final match please stand aside as soon as possible.

TOP UP ACCOUNT REMINDER
====================
Can I please remind players to ensure their account is topped up otherwise if they have a 2 or a score they will be unable to win any prize money as the system will not recognise them as having entered the sweep or 2s.

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

Please find attached the results for the Club Championship Qualifier Round2. CSS was 69 with 148 Entries.

The start of the day was delayed due to some flooding. A few players withdrew, however, there was still a very good field and some great scores. The Results can also be viewed in the app and a handicap revision file is provided.

Murdie Carmichael set the target for the Sid Montford Trophy early on with a 70 to give a 142 total which was matched by last weeks leader Stephen Mullen who had 69 & 73.

However with the new VMS system the guys in the clubhouse were carefully watching Al Roy's progress as he went 2 under after 6. A dropped shot at 13 was repaired with a birdie @ 17 and a solid par at the last gave Al a 66 and a 36 hole total of 140.

This was Al's 3rd Sid Montford trophy, Congratualtions Al.

The qualifying score for the Matchplay was 154 with Al Robertson (Bobo) being the 16th name on the sheet.

The draw for the Matchplay was made as below, with some interesting ties.

The games will Tee off in order on Monday night @ 17:00

1 Ricardo Dimurro Vs Mark Crawford
2 Chris Mcaulay Vs Alistair Roy
3 Stuart Gallacher Vs Stephen Mullan
4 Craig Brown Vs Paul Dorrian
5 Paul Mcfarlane Vs Simon Middleton
6 David Macfarlane Vs Crawford Rae
7 Graeme Mclellan Vs Alistair Robertson
8 Kenan Ingram Vs Gerry Donnachie

Please note Caddies are allowed, however, only in the role of carrying the bag and and providing advice. Caddies should not pass clubs to the player.

Here is SGU guidance..
Caddy services may resume, providing all physical distancing and hygiene measures are adhered to. A caddy can only have contact with up to four households per day and should be limited to carrying of bag, providing advice only and not passing golf clubs to the player.



DUNCANS RAFFLE
==============
Please note making the raffle optional has resulted in only 33 players in week 1 and 21 players in week 2. Therefore from next Saturday Duncan is going to go back to having the manual sheet and members can enter by giving Duncan £1.
Those players who have already entered via the system will be given a ticket for each £1 they have donated and this will go into the draw next Saturday.

PLEASE ALWAYS CHECK YOUR SCORES ARE IN !!
=========================================

REMINDER: Can I just remind players to check their scores are entered into the system at the end of their round.

If this isn't done then M&H need to spend time chasing players to see why their card isn't complete in case it is a system error. This causes delay in creating the results, so please always check your scores are on the system otherwise M&H will assume you have NR'd.

To check your scores go into the app:

Comps - Select the Competition - Click on Scores - Find your name and click on it. This will show your scores for the 18 holes.

If there are any discrepancies or scores missing please contact M&H asap.

Can I also ask players who are entering an NR to still enter a 0 (zero ) for all the holes they don't play.

If you are having trouble entering your scores and Duncan is still in the shop then feel free to ask him to assist you as Duncan has the system access to enter the score for you.

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

Club Ch'Ships Qual Rd 1 - 18 July 2020

Please find attached the results for Round 1 of the Club Championship Qualifiers. There is also a Gross Score result sheet which shows leading score of 69 from Stephen Mullen and 30 players on 78 or better.

After next Saturdays round the Top 16 Gross Scores qualify for the Matchplay rounds which start on Monday 27th July.

Can I please remind people to check their scores are entered on to the system at the end of their round. If all their scores aren't entered it means M&H need to chase those folks down to check if they had NR'd or if there was a problem getting scores entered. This causes a delay in getting the results out. If you have a problem getting your scores into the system please let M&H know as soon as you have completed your round.


Thanks

Can I just remind players to check their scores are entered into the system at the end of their round.
Once you believe your scores have been entered you can check by going into:

Comps - Select the Competition - Click on Scores - Find your name and click on it. This will show your scores for the 18 holes.

If there are any discrepancies or scores missing please contact M&H asap.

Can I also ask players who are entering an NR to still enter a 0 (zero ) for all the holes they don't play.

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

  • Bunker Rakes - 8 July 2020

Members are advised that from Wednesday 8th July, 2020, rakes will be available at the shop.
We would ask that each game takes one rake out with their game,not just on competition days,but on every round that they play. As we are still under Covid restrictions we'd ask that each game nominates a player as "Mr Raker" to minimise the need for sanitizing/handling which can be dealt with upon completion of the round.

S Cameron and D Shields have been doing a sterling job in volunteering to rake the bunkers for us ,and their efforts are very much appreciated. But this new arrangement will allow us all the opportunity to help keep the bunkers in the best possible condition for those unfortunate enough to visit them during their round. "

Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

Charity Salver Entry
====================
Tomorrow is the Charity Salver as well as the Reid Rose Bowl Qualifying ( Top 16 Net Scores ).

Normally we would request members to donate a £1 to Charity along with their entry fee. I have just set up the competition to take an additional £1 from entrants. However the system wasn't able to gather the extra £1 from those already entered and only recent entrants have been charged £4.

Therefore I will refund the £1 to the small number of folks who were charged £4. (You may see emails refunding you £4 and it will then take £3 for your entry ). I will set up a later competition to take the charity donation.

DUNCANS SHOP
============
As many of you will be aware our Starter Duncan has been putting in a lot of hours in his shop to ensure we are all booked in the system to play golf and meeting our Scottish Golf/Govt Covid Guidelines. However, the current situation has also hit Duncan's ability to provide proper retail services and I'm sure you will all agree we need to provide Duncan with the appropriate support.

Normally Duncan would run a weekly Raffle but because very few people have been entering the shop then this hasn't been run. Therefore Duncan has requested that I set up the system to run the raffle inputs. I can set the system up to make the raffle input Mandatory or to make it optional. I'm initially going to set it to mandatory ie, the £1 raffle will be taken when you enter. We can see how this goes and if everyone is OK we will continue to run it that way going forward.
Please let me know if you don't wish to enter and we will refund you. If the number of people who don't wish to enter is significant and making refunds is driving a big workload then we will revert to it being optional. The Raffle will be run weekly as part of the Saturday competitions and the first Raffle will be on July 18th. There will be at least 3 prizes and depending on numbers may be extended.

I do hope the members will recognise Duncan's contribution and provide support.

Please note that as from 10th July Duncans Shop will be open for business and as with all Shops it will require a face covering to be worn when entering. Numbers will still be restricted to ensure social distancing. Duncan has also requested that we make members aware the he can currently provide goods on order so if you need anything let him know.

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

  • Wednesday Medal 1 July 2020

Some remarkable scoring yesterday in the May Wed Medal, with the highlight being Chris Ahlfelds Net 60, which puts him as one of the favourites for the Bennett Cup( best 2 net scores in a Wed Medal ). There was also a Net 61 and a 62 !! and a Gross 68 from Riccardo Di Murro which included 3 twos.

CSS was 69 with 142 Entries. The Results are attached and can also be viewed in the app. There is also a handicap revision file provided.

Lawrie Trophy & Turner Quaich - Sat 27 June 2020

An Interesting Weekend with some very heavy showers which I'm sure caused a few problems for some.

This weekend was aimed mainly at our Senior Community with both the Lawrie Trophy ( 55+ ) & Turner Quaich (65+ ) up for grabs. We also had our qualifying for the Seniors Championship ( 16 best Gross scores from ages 55+ ) and the Whinhill Trophy ( 16 best Net scores from ages 55+ ).

Congratulations go to Gordon McFarlane who had our first Hole in One of the Season @ 16th. Hopefully the usual companies that provide wee extras for a hole in one are still providing these in the current environment.

CSS was 69 with 147 Entries. The Results are attached and can also be viewed in the app. There is also a handicap revision file provided.

The winner of the Turner Quaich was Michael O'Neill with Net 70 and the Runner Up was Alan Moore with Net 71.

The winner of the Lawrie Trophy was Archie Essler with Net 68 and Runner Up was Michael Bonnar also with a Net 68 but lost out on countback.

The Qualifiers for the Matchplay competitions are shown below. Please note I took the ages of those eligible based on the DoB in the system, if anyone thinks there is anything wrong with age calculations please let me know ASAP and I will resolve.

The Draw for the matchplay will be issued in the next few days.

Qualifiers for the Whinhill Trophy Matchplay ( Handicap ) are:
Net Name
68 Archie Essler
68 Michael Bonnar

Attached is the Draw for the Matchplay for both competitions.

Seniors Championship

Whinhill Seniors Trophy


The rounds require to be completed by the dates below. Please note any extensions for these rounds will be only on an exceptional basis, so please arrange early.
Rd1 - 26th July
Rd2 - 16th Aug
Rd3 - 6th Sept
Rd4 - 27th Sept

In the current environment as we don't have access to the normal challenge book then the normal rules of engagement are different. Therefore, instead of it being the responsibility of the first name in the draw to make contact I am making it a joint responsibility and expecting both parties to be as flexible as they can be in arranging the ties.
There is a WhatsApp type tool within the Scottish Golf app ( GolfsApp), but please be aware that it doesn't always seem to alert people that they have a message so please be wary when using this, however, within that app when you click on someone's name it will also show you their email address and phone number ( top RH corner ). and I suggest a phone call between parties is probably best to allow details to be sorted quickly.

If there are any issues please email me right away and I will do my best to resolve.
Also, please email to let me know the result of the tie as soon as you have completed it.

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

  • Update 25 June 2020

CRAWFORD BOGEY
Earlier today Scottish Golf indicated that they had fixed the problem with the Crawford Bogey scoring/results resolution, so we published the results which some of you may have seen. However before we finalised the handicap adjustments I noticed a problem ( CSS was showing as 72 which meant half the field would have had their handicap cut ). Scottish Golf are back on the case trying to fix this CSS calculation, hopefully before tomorrows competition.

CRAWFORD BOGEY RESULT.
We finally have the results of our competition posted and the relevant handicap adjustments made.
Congratulations to Euan Knox who is our first Trophy Winner of the year and is now the proud recipient of the Crawford Bogey Trophy. Thats the good news. The bad news is that the Crawford Bogey Trophy is the old painting that hangs on the stairway between the Secretary's Office and the downstairs hall. Good Luck trying to find somewhere to hang that in the house Euan !!

BUNKERS
As you may know a couple of members have been kindly donating their time on a Tuesday and Friday to rake the bunkers in readiness for the competition, however, I am really disappointed that despite these efforts some members are not making any attempt to flatten out any footprints / divot marks when they are leaving the bunker which is impacting players coming up behind. Can I please request anyone who goes in a bunker should try to leave the bunker in as pristine a condition as they can.

GENERAL ACCOUNT TOP UP
Can I also ask that members ensure their accounts are Topped up so they are able to enter the competitions. Please note, if anyone is in the competition and hasn't paid their sweep/2's money the system will not allocate any winnings if so placed.
If anyone is having any problems topping up their accounts please let me know and I will help to resolve.

GUIDELINES for MARKERS & NON COMPETITORS playing in competition.
Some folks have been asking how the new system should work if their playing partner isn't playing in the competition, for example, someone who is a valid member but for valid reason ( maybe coming back from injury etc..) doesn't wish to play in competition or someone who is playing for handicap.

Process
The player should enter the competition but indicate to the starter or M&H that they do not wish to play in the competition prior to starting. M&H can refund any fees paid at that point.
This will allow the players to use the mobile scoring as normal, either by using Normal Scorecard or if this isn't available select 'Score for All Players'
At the end of the competition the M&H can remove the non-comp players score from the competition and use as a supplementary score for handicap if applicable.

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

  • Update 23 June 2020

As indicated the 3rd slots for this Wednesdays and Saturdays competitions were opened @ 5PM.

A couple of people have reported that they took a 3rd slot and got an email confirmation however shortly after when they checked they were no longer on the draw. If you have taken a 3rd slot please check you still have it. If not, please go in via Comps and select your competition then re-select your tee time via the My Tee Time button.

If you are having a problem with this please let me know which time you are trying to join and if still free I will resolve. You can contact me by replying to this mail. Update on Crawford Bogey results - Scottish Golf are still looking at this.

As mentioned on Saturday there was a problem with the scoring on the Crawford Bogey, however that has now been corrected and the scores now look correct. You can check this in the competition.
Comps - Then Click on Past - Select Crawford Bogey - Scores - Scoreboard. There is currently a bug in the system which isn't resolving the results correctly for a Bogey competition. Scottish Golf are looking into this and the results will be updated once this is fixed. ( I think we must be one of the few clubs in Scotland that still have a Bogey competition, which maybe is why SG haven't seen this issue before ! )

3rd Slots
======
The 3rd slots for this Wednesdays competition will be opened around 5PM today, and Saturdays competition will be available shortly after. This is a manual process hence why it won't be an exact time.

Going forward the 3rd slot will be available when the competition opens as this is the only way to ensure it is done at an exact time. This will be in place whilst CoVid restrictions are in place. However once restrictions are lifted this will be looked at by the committee as to whether we revert to our normal process of keeping the 3rd slot as only available on the day via the starter.

  • Update 21 June 2020

Phase 2 Update

Following the Scottish First Minister’s Covid 19 update today, it is now acceptable for Golf Clubs in Scotland to allow their members and visitors to move from 2 balls to 3 balls whilst maintaining all other Social Distancing Guidelines.

VMS will need to be set up to accommodate this change but as from Friday 19th June as long as a 2 ball is booked on the system, it will be possible for a 3rd name to be added when checking in with the starter for non competition rounds.

M&H are working hard to accommodate a move to 3 balls for Competition and an update on this will follow shortly .

Unfortunately, there has been no change on the regulations to allow us to open the Clubhouse or to sell drink outside but this will be reviewed in 2 weeks time and we are already taking steps to ensure we are ready to respond as soon as the regulations change.

Executive Committee.

  •  

  • Update 19 June 2020

As per previous email confirming 3 balls are acceptable, please note that the 3rd time on Saturdays competition (Crawford Bogey) will be made available on Friday 19th Jun @ 12:00 ( midday ).
As per CoVid guidelines everyone must have a pre-booked time, ie, no one can turn up on Saturday without a time.

To take the 3rd time please enter the competition as usual and when the Tee Time button appears you will be able to select any available times.

If you already have a time and are looking to move, then it is a similar process.
Click on - Comps - Select Crawford Bogey - Then press the Tee Time button - You will then have the option to move to any available slots.

Further details about the 3rd time for future competitions will be made available in the next few days.

Also attached are the results from yesterday's Wednesday Stableford. These can also be viewed on the App.

Please note that due to the way the new system is setup we will be reverting the 2's competition for the 1st division to normal setup. ie, any 2's will be paid out. So there will be no longer be a 2's section for Scr-5 and 6-10, instead it will be a Scr-10.

However, we will continue to look at this to see if there is an easier way to allocate the 2's winnings, and if so, we will try to revert to our usual format for 1st section at some point in the future.


Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

First VMS Competition Results
====================
As I indicated in my last communication we were going to run the results phase of Fridays 9 Hole competition with Scottish Golf rep.

We went through this today and we have published the results and they are now available via the app and on the website to view and the winners should have had monies added to their Pro Shop accounts.

The members are able to view the scores on their phones by clicking on:

Comps - Club - Past - Welcome Back 9-hole - Result

Please see below a link to a youtube video put together by Gordon Crae from Gourock who is our Scottish Golf rep. This video shows how to see results.

Click on Link: https://youtu.be/usjfkMoqtRg

Lessons Learned from 1st Competition
=========================
As previously mentioned the competition went very well with only a few issues, however, one of the recommendations from Scottish Golf with reference to scoring is that members should select Normal Scorecard instead of Score for All Players.

Score For All Players should only be used when only one player has a phone.

Also as we are starting Qualifying competitions this weekend then we really need to implement the Normal Scorecard method as much as possible. This reduces the M&H workload as well as being more precise in terms of scoring, ie, there should be little or no errors because of the cross verification.

SG have also produced a tutorial for Scoring, please review this as it is very helpful..

Click on Link: https://youtu.be/lM7xi5lKy8w

If anyone is has any issues or questions please let me know via email ( either reply to this email or directly to ar028m8442@ntlworld.com )

Please note there are also a couple of other videos by SG on Topping up your account and Entering competitions, however as most of you have already Topped up your accounts and Entered a competition then you may already be familiar with this.

First VMS Competition Held Successfully
=======================================
We have now held our first competition using the new VMS system. The competition was very well supported with almost 100 entries. Everyone seemed comfortable with the system on their phones with only 1 entry out of 97 having to be manually input by M&H.

The members are able to view the scores on their phones by clicking on:

Comps - Club - Past - Welcome Back 9-hole - Scores - Scoreboard.

M&H will have a session with Scottish Golf on Monday to ensure that we are adopting the correct procedures when running the results and I expect to get the results out on Monday. Going forward the results should then be communicated in a much more timely period.

As I mentioned in a previous email you can now enter our Wednesday and Saturday competitions in the normal leadtime, ie, 8 days in advance @ 7PM. Please remember that if you want a time on a competition day you must first enter the competition then you will get a button to allow you to select a tee time on the competition draw sheet.

Challenge Cup / Challenge Quaich Entry
======================================
Just to let you know that M&H plan to run the Challenge Cup / Challenge Quaich this year albeit on a very much shortened timescale. Unfortunately due to Government restrictions of 2 households we cannot run the foursomes this year. Anyone knocked out in the Challenge Cup first round will go into a draw for the Challenge Quaich.

If you wish to enter the Challenge Cup please email me before Wednesday 17th June @ 8PM.

For those of you who have already entered on the drawsheet in the clubhouse before lockdown can you please re-iterate again your desire to play otherwise I will assume that you don't.

If you have paid your entry fee already please let me know this on your email.

If you have already paid and no longer wish to play please email me and confirm whether you wish us to add that money to your General account in VMS or if you want the money returned.

In order to complete the competitions in time we will be working to a very strict 2 week turnaround with NO extensions being granted. In order to do this we will need competitors to contact each other as soon as they know who their opponent is. ( note: There is a communications tool within the VMS system which could help on this, albeit I am not sure how effective it will be.
Click on GolfsApp on the bottom of your phone then select the person you want to message and type in your message similar to using the phone message system or whatsapp.

M&H will try to keep the draw information up to date on an almost daily basis probably via the clubs website, but as mentioned above this will be all about full co-operation of the members, and if for example people decide to go on holiday they may need to forfeit their tie, therefore anyone entering should be aware of this.

If anyone is having any issues with VMS or wants to enter Challenge cup please let me know via email ( either reply to this email or directly to ar028m8442@ntlworld.com )

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

  • Update 9 June 2020

I have added a 15 minute video that shows how to enter and score using the app. This is an extract from the education session provided by Scottish Golf last month.

You can view the video on the link: https://youtu.be/TEaZZGoDVcw

The 1st competition is a 9 Hole Stableford competition over the Big course (Holes 1-8 & 14)
This will be held on Friday 12th June and entries will open on Tuesday 9th June ( Tomorrow ) @ 19:00.

The 2nd competition will be on Wed 17th and will be an 18 Hole Stableford - entry for this will open on Thu 11th June @ 19:00

The first two competitions will be non-qualifying. This is for several reasons,

1. Players readiness for competition, 2. Course readiness, and 3. System readiness, ie, we would like to use these first 2 competitions to help iron out any issues we encounter using the new VMS system.

The first qualifying competition will be Sat 20th - Crawford Bogey. This will open up for entry as per our normal leadtime, ie, it will open up the Friday before @ 19:00.

If anyone is having any issues please let me know via email ( either reply to this email or directly to ar028m8442@ntlworld.com )

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.

  • Update 9 June 2020

As you know we are now back playing golf again and all members are booking times via the Scottish Golf VMS app. The next stage in our deployment of this new system is to use the system for competitions.

The system will be used to:

1) Load money into your General Account.
( This will be used to pay entry fees (sweep & 2s) for competitions. Any winnings will then go into your Proshop account (as it always has)).
2) Enter competitions
3) Book a time in the competition
4) Check-In via the app
5) Use for electronic scorecards on the app.

In order to ease both the membership and the M & H into the use of the new system we will start with some smaller competitions and towards the end of the month get back into normal competition mode.

PLEASE NOTE : I will shortly send out further communications including some pdf files and videos (also make them accessible via the website) to show members how to enter competitions and use the scoring facility.

THE FIRST STEP for members is to load their General Account with funds for playing in the competitions. This can be done easily on the app or on the website.

a) Loading on the app: Log into the app and on the Top RH corner of your homepage click on the Top Up button. This will then ask you to select a pre-set amount ( minimum is £15 ). It will then ask you for your debit or credit card details as per any normal web transaction. Once you have completed this your credit amount will show on your home page.

b) Loading on the Web: Click on the Website: https://4102522000.scottish.golf/
Once on the Website Login (Red icon top RH corner ) using your email & your Scottish Golf password.
Click on the Settings Icon ( Red Gear icon on top RH side ), then select Top Up Balance and proceed as above.

This will then ask you to select a pre-set amount ( minimum is £15 ). It will then ask you for your debit or credit card details as per any normal web transaction. Once you have completed this your credit amount will show on your home page.

I plan to run a non qualifying 9 hole stableford competition on Friday in order to kick off our use of the system so it would be good if anyone who plans to play in this could load up their accounts ahead of this.
The competition will open for entries on Tuesday 9th June ( Tomorrow ) @ 19:00.

The planned fixture list for the rest of June is:
Sat 13th - Normal Play
Wed 17th - Stableford
Sat 20th - Crawford Bogey
Wed 24th - Willow Trophy
Sat 27th - Lawrie Trophy & Seniors Qualifying.

If anyone is having any issues with trying to load their account please let me know via email ( either reply to this email or directly to ar028m8442@ntlworld.com )

 

VMS Update May 2020

The Executive Committee have given M&H the authority to proceed with a new system for Booking times and running competitions ( Scottish Golf Venue Management System - VMS ).

When the government and SGU give the OK for golf to resume it is very likely that one of the guidelines will be that NO ONE will be allowed to play without booking a time. ie, Just turning up to play golf will not be allowed. Note: These rules will be in place for normal social golf as well as competition golf.

Therefore M&H will be looking to setup VMS to allow members to book daily slots and this will require members to use VMS to book a time, either through the Mobile APP or via the Website. In terms of impact to the members there should be little or no difference to what is currently used today ie,(BRS). Please note that this also applies to the Nine Hole Course ( Wee course ) and 9 hole members will also need to book a time.

In order to get everyone lined up for the new system the M&H will register each member with Scottish Golf. Each member who hasn't already registered should receive an email from Scottish golf and within the email it will contain a password for registering/logging onto VMS and a link to the APP. If you haven't received the email from Scottish Golf within the next few days please check your spam/junk mail.

We will also set people up as visible to other members so that you can be added to timesheets by another person. In line with Data protection (GDPR) rules, there is the option in the app for members to switch this off, however it does mean you will be invisible to other members.

In order to expedite this rollout we will initially use the VMS app for booking tee times and then when the time is right extend the use of the app for Entering and Scoring in competitions. When we do get the nod to resume golf we expect that initially we will be playing social golf and hopefully within a fairly short period we can restart competition play. This strategy we are adopting ie, initially using the app for bookings, will allow members to familiarise themselves with the app and we can then move forward by using it to run competitions.

Education sessions, videos and instructions docs will be made available. We already held one Zoom session last week with nearly 40 members attending and the feedback was very positive.

We will setup the VMS booking system so that members can book a tee time up to 7 days in advance.

NOTE: Even although we are not currently allowed to play golf we will set up VMS with daily timesheets to allow members to make tee bookings just to familiarise themselves with the app. Please feel free to do this.

To get you started attached is a pdf file with simple instructions on how to make a tee booking.


If you have any concerns or questions on this please contact M&H via email ( either reply to this email or directly to ar028m8442@ntlworld.com )

Thanks
Alex Roy M&H Convenor.
