Here are some typical questions asked by would-be-members. If you have others, please contact the National Secretary, who will be happy to answer them and, if applicable, add them to this site.
Q1. Is there a limit on spaces at each event and do they fill within hours/days/weeks etc? A1. YES, OF COURSE, EACH EVENT HAS A MAXIMUM FIELD SIZE DEFINED BY THE CLUB WHEN THEY AGREE TO HOST ONE OF OUR EVENTS. CURRENTLY THE RANGE IS 60-100+
TO DATE, WE HAVE HAD ONE or TWO EVENTS THAT WERE OVERSUBSCRIBED. BUT EVEN THEN WE HAVE STARTED THE DAY 1 PLAYER SHORT DUE TO LAST MINUTE DROP_OUTS!!
Q2. Is there a dinner at the end of day 1 and is it suit/tie etc? A2. IF THE CLUB OFFERS SUCH FACILITIES, WE PUT A 3 LINE ENTRY FORM ON THE WEBSITE ALONG WITH THE COST AND THE DRESS CODE. ATTENDANCE WAS/IS OPTIONAL.
Q3. Is there any organised overnight accommodation or does everyone do their own thing? A3. HISTORICALLY, EVERYONE HAS DONE THEIR OWN THING (FROM FANCY HOTELS, TO BUDGET HOTELS, TO B&B'S TO STAYING WITH FRIENDS). WE DID TRY A CORPORATE TYPE DEAL WITH PREMIER INN AND TRAVELODGE BUT THEY DID NOT WANT TO KNOW!!
Q4. How do people know their start time/playing partners etc? A4. MEMBERS SELECT AND ENTER THEIR OWN TEE TIMES ON DAY 1 (and can go on an automated RESERVE LIST if the competition is full) AND WE OPERATE A 'LEADERS-OUT-LAST' SYSTEM FOR DAY 2 WITH ON-LINE VIEWABILITY AND CLUBHOUSE PRINT-OUTS AND MOBILE PHONE CONTACT. MOST PEOPLE CAN WORK OUT THEIR APPROXIMATE TEE-TIME FROM THE RESULTS ON DAY 1.
