On Line Tee Booking ‘BRS’
All members should be booking online whenever they play. Everyone that books a tee time has priority on the first tee over members who do not book.

Can all members embrace the BRS system, If anyone needs help setting up speak to pro shop or office or your golfing colleagues. For those of you with Smart phones download the BRS Golf app. Failing that Phone, the Pro Shop for a time.

Slow Play
This is again becoming a problem:
Do not worry about the group behind – keep up with the group in front.
If you feel that your group is falling behind take responsibility and bring this to the attention of the other players in your group.
React positively to the situation.
If your group is behind there is no need to run but try to catch up quickly.
Invite the group behind you to play through if you are delaying them.
While you waiting to play:
Put your glove on and check your yardage.
Assess the wind strength and direction.
Decide on the type of shot that you are going to play.
Select your club.
When it is your turn to play, play promptly. Consider your pre-shot routine; saving even a few seconds will make a difference.
