Yes, please bring only four clubs and, if you have not yet registered, do so here.
After reporting one case of COVID last week, we can advise that all close contacts were notified and all have either tested negative or shown no symptoms. So far, so good, no more cases – evidence that respecting personal distance works.
Players make their own decisions on risk. We encourage everyone to follow Government advice, observe social distancing, sanitise hands and wear masks in enclosed areas and when registering and submitting scores to protect yourselves and those helping out. Where possible, it’s also best to find well ventilated, preferably open air spaces, to eat, drink and gather after play, and the club has been made aware of this. Golf has helped many of us get through this mess, so let’s try to keep it safe.
Handicaps, Tee Boxes and Other Stuff
In the last few weeks, we have covered handicaps and tee boxes. We are up to date with handicaps now, and we have worked out the white vs blue tee box question, without leaving people out. As a loosely assembled society, we don’t have membership fees and we try not to have too many rules. In fact, our only written rule has been that players must be able to stand unaided on the first tee box! Our society relies on sensible self-regulation. We work on the principle that Tee Set players conduct themselves safely and respectfully to each other (of course friendly banter is encouraged!) and to caddies and staff. Tee Setters who register are accepting this principle. None of the Committee want to police player behaviour but we will decline registrations for a period of time if we find dangerous or disrespectful behaviour. We have not had to do that yet and we hope we never do, but we will if we have to. Now, back to the fun….
Coming Up……Valentine’s Day Event, Sunday 14 February 2021, Sawangan
Chocolates, roses, love songs, overnight stays in cabins, and red tees…..all these come together in our special Valentine’s event, now being put together by Social Events Guru, James “Let your love flow” Bristow. Now, this is a retro event, rekindled thanks to Jack Calcote’s nostalgia, harking back to the early days of Tee Set when Sawangan was a regular course and the Valentine’s event was a calendar highlight.
It will be a two person scramble, played off the red tees, with mixed teams encouraged and given a handicap advantage. It will start at 10am, to allow us time for after match entertainment and prizes. Of course, single entries are welcome and will be paired up, if possible in a mixed pair, or if necessary with another fella. Gents pairs will also be welcome, if that’s how you feel. It will be a fond farewell to Sawangan, which is soon to be converted into housing. No need to register yet, but save the date!
To those interested, overnight stay options on Saturday and/or Sunday night are available through the very helpful Devi on 0812 9504 1383. If you have no luck getting through, try 0878 0431 8708. There will be an after match BBQ, and live music will be provided by the Luscious Love Tones, featuring some well known Tee Set voices. The event will be open air and social distancing will be expected on the dance floor, well, except for genuine couples.
