ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION AND GOLF DAY FEES
The annual subscription is currently £20 and is reviewed each year at the Annual General Meeting.
The committee, dependent on the package negotiated with each golf club to be visited, will decide fees for the golf days. The fees will be notified to members well in advance of each golf day.
The principal information centre is www.btobs.co.uk where all relevant details of the Society’s activities are available. It is the responsibility of members to ensure they keep informed of activities.
A newsletter is circulated regularly to members by E-mail and contains results and reports of golf days as well as information on forthcoming events and other interesting information.
GOLF AND GENERAL PLAY
The Society and its members agree to abide by the rules of golf laid down by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews. See R&A link above.
The members must adhere to any additional rules in operation at the golf clubs visited by the Society.
The committee will adopt a system of handicapping deemed fair for all involved.
A sub-committee of the main committee is responsible for administration of the handicap system. The sub-committee meets after each golf day to review handicaps as well as any other occasions, as required.
A full record of all competitions and handicaps will be kept by the committee and is available for all members to view.
The dates and venues will be decided and arranged by the committee and are published early in the calendar year for the full year.
As there is often a limitation on numbers imposed by the golf clubs to be visited, a list will be published on www.btobs.co.uk immediately after a golf day notifying members of details of the next event. Members will be required to indicate whether they wish to attend the next event ant pay green fees in advance.
In addition to the information being available at www.btobs.co.uk the newsletter will notify members of meeting arrangements and times for each event.
Members are required to register at the appropriate golf club on arrival and to be there at the notified time.
Members will be notified in advance via www.btobs.co.uk and email of each golf day’s dress requirements.
As golf societies can be viewed with mixed feelings, the Society aims to be welcomed back to visiting clubs.
ANNUAL GOLF DAY
The Annual Golf Day is held each year in late summer.
