Friday Flash

Dear Member

Another week, another step toward normal life (and winter, dammit).


On Monday, the Government will decide whether we go to level 1 (which is normal New Zealand with the borders closed basically).


This weekend club competitions will restart with the (men, women and mixed) pairs event the Bertram Cup. Details follow.


Interclub will restart this month. Karori was buzzing in the interclub when play was halted.


Our women’s bronze pennants were 3rd; the women’s nine-hole team (unbeaten) are 4th; men’s division 2 are 2nd; men’s division 5 are 1st, as are men’s division 9.


It was super to see the clubhouse buzzing again over the last week, it really gave the feel that we are all back together as a group again.


As a reminder. We can now seat more than four players at each table, but we still must have a meters gap between each table. It’s almost like real life again.


Only Eftpos will be accepted in the clubhouse  - no cash - please sanitize hands before and  after use. Sanitiser will be available.


Shop will be open, please do not touch any items you do not wish to purchase.


Help out Debbie and Anna by sticking to the rules.

When the clubhouse is open, we will be able to open the Pitch n’Putt course ,with players to register their contact information at reception. Hire clubs will be available with stringent cleaning protocols in place.

THE COURSE

Help them out the greenkeppers by repairing your pitch marks on the greens, and divots on the fairways. And don’t forget to thank them for their hard work - you can’t phone them, as their phone is not working at the moment. That will be fixed.


Keep an eye on your items too, there have been a few dropped tissue papers littering fairways of late - no one wants to touch those at the moment!


GREEN FEES PLAYERS

We have had a fair few of late. Two Sundays back there was an eight! Please try to be patient, and polite. We don’t want to scare them off. It’s fair to ask to be let through, and kindly explain points of etiquette.We will try to brief those who look like newcomers before they tee off, but it’s not always easy to tell.

 

SPEAKING OF VISITORS

This was posted on the Kiwi Golf Club Facebook page during the week. It is beautiful. There are drone photos galore and a humorous write up. Seek it out!

 

 

RUNNING OF THE GOATS AMBROSE

Tim Richards and Kevin Norquay have plans well underway for this. They have asked PM Jacinda when we might be at level 1, but she won’t say until Monday. This Covid-19 related tourney will be held as soon as we go to Level 1.

Could Billy be one of the prizes?

 

WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM

This is up and running. It is slightly different to the old system, so your handicap might change - it updates after each round too, so you could have a different handicap on Sunday, than the day before.

 

The advantages are you get a handicap you can use in any country, plus it stops burglars by constantly updating and preventing handicaps blowing out after a series of bad cards.


The best 8 rounds of the last 20 will now count to establish your handicap (it was 10). Course rating is now being included in the handicapping formula in addition to the slope index .

FIREWOOD (keep warm, help the club)
It’s winter, it’s a bit brisk already, with snow on the Tararuas. You need to keep warm, so the club has a deal for you. Members can now buy firewood from the club, if they bring their own trailer.

Trailer load prices

Pine $120
Macrocarpa  $140

You need to play the club online (just call the office, they’ll help) before picking up the wood, and email the club saying when you want to get it.

 

Firewood can be picked up from the greenkeepers’ shed between 8am-3pm, Monday to Friday.

AND NO, we will not be chopping down the tree on the second, or that evil leaning one that ruins approach shots on 18.

CLEANING (job opportunity)

We need a cleaner. If any member knows of anyone who could be interested in this position please email the club. We are getting by with volunteers at the moment.

CALLING MUSCULAR TYPES

We need help to remove the cut wood from the ninth fairway, please let us know if you can help. We know the GUR rule is helpful on that hole, but really the timber has to go!


LEVEL 2 rules (FOR THE LAST TIME HOPEFULLY!)

Legally, the club still has to observe social distancing, trace and track and washing cleaning protocols. The aim is to keep all club members safe so that the arrival of normal life is not delayed.


Sorry if you’ve already read them once, twice, three times, but they do bear repeating under our club obligations. Plus they’re really great rules, and we all love rules!!


There will be no food in the cabinet, the pie warmer is now in the kitchen, so you have to order food from the specially sanitised KGC staff.

 

Please use the sanitiser and hand wipes, as per the Government’s cleaning protocols.


THE RULES

One GOOD THING, particularly if you’re a yippy putter:


  • for the sake of good health, GIMMES ARE ALLOWED - half the length of your putter shaft, not half the length of the green!


HEALTH PROTOCOLS

Unwell players are not to come to the course. If you have a cold, sore throat, or a cough please think of others, and don’t come out to the course.

Coughing is a sign of coronavirus, plus it can put golfers off those short but crucial putts. Stay home if you have a cough.

 

Wash, wash, wash: players should wash their hands regularly, particularly before and after their round. Hand wipes and sanitiser will be available in the toilets. Please wipe down all areas you have touched.

 


TRACKING PROTOCOLS

All players, members and green fee players must book online, or check in at the office. Don’t simply turn off and venture out on to the course. That’s illegal. When the office is unattended the players’ list will be located downstairs near the log in screen.

 

People who are in the clubhouse, but not playing, must also register, so we can track and trace.

SCORE CARDS

Cards can be obtained but not to be touched - marked or signed - by another player. Please wipe the computer screen after use.

Scores can be entered digitally using hands cleaning protocols. Scores can also be entered on the DotGolf scoring app.

CARTS

  • Clubs and carts stored at the club, can be used by one player only.

  • When retrieving these from storage please do not touch anyone else’s clubs trundler

  • Wipe down the key pad door handle after use.

  • Hire clubs will not be available, but golf carts can be hired.

  • Private carts should be restricted to just the one user under level 2.

 

ON THE COURSE

  • Tee times are 10 minutes apart. Groups must wait for the correct time to tee off, not simply fire away after the group in front has played their second shot.

  • Golfing groups must maintain their distance from each other. Hitting wild slices and hooks onto other fairways will therefore be frowned up!

  • Flagsticks will be on the course but don’t touch them - putt with the flagstick in. Short “gimme“ putts should be given.

  • Bunkers will be designated GUR  - they are not up to standard as yet. There will be no bunker rakes on the course
