As the hotter weather approaches, there will be a good chance that at some stage we will have to implement the Heat Policy. I would like to let members know what the procedure will be like now that we have moved to On-line bookings.
If the Heat Policy is called at 12 pm (midday) on a Thursday for Saturday's competition then -
The On-line Time sheet will be cancelled and deleted. With this, everyone who have put there names down to play, will also be deleted.
A new On-line Time sheet will be put up in it's place with new tee times and multiple tees.
Members will need to then log back in and re-book a tee time.
This also applies for the Wednesday competitions as well.
I hope that this will not be too much of an inconvenience to anyone and hope that we don't have to implement the Heat Policy too often
Please see attached for our 'Heat Policy' for all competition players
New Directives from Golf Aust to BPGC Members re Covid
See attached for full list of directives as of 18th September 2020
NOTE FROM AXEDALE GOLF CLUB TO BELVOIR PARK MEMBERS
Axedale welcomes Belvoir members to play our course at no charge, as agreed between our clubs. Please note, though, that until further notice you must book ahead to secure your tee time. We require this to manage our COVID obligations, but it is always best practice to contact a golf club in advance to ensure you can get on.
Currently we have reserved tee times for Axedale members only on Saturdays until 2.00pm and from Wednesday-Friday until 1.00pm. Outside those times, we would be delighted to host you at our course. Please call David on 0419 154 977 to book your tee time.
Axedale Golf Club
Our 'Good Samaritan' volunteers !!!
There are many times when some of our golfers just seem to 'go missing' and often that golfer may be hospitalised, unwell or going through some tough times. Over the past couple of years we have a wonderful couple who have taken on the volunteer role of our 'Good Samaritans'.
Frank and Merrilyn Kinsman, both long time members of our club (40+ years member medallists), have been quietly keeping in touch with many of our sick or missing members and letting them know that our Club does care for all our members.
Anyone who has received a phone call from either Frank or Merrilyn will know just how good they are at working in this position. Their phone calls are unobtrusive and always in such a kind & caring manner that recipients certainly feel that they are being thought of and as valued members, their presence is certainly missed from our club.
We have many members volunteering for many jobs around the club but this role is sure to be unique to our club. It is one that we need to embrace and feel proud that we have two members who are so good at the 'Good Samaritan' role.
To assist Frank or Merrilyn, if you know of any member who may benefit from a phone call - please let them know - they often have to rely on other members letting them know of anyone's ill health/fortunes.
