Kirtlington Golf Club
Gary Quainton Retail Manager
I hope you all enjoyed the long Bank Holiday Weekend! As we approach September we are now just one month away from the Ryder Cup and one of the most exciting and keenly anticipated sporting events! Here at the club across August it has been fantastic to see so many families and also new golfers of all ages coming out to play here - with the Blenheim 9 hole course being particularly popular.
Have you submitted a Supplementary Score?
It's been great to see so many players submitting supplementary rounds recently. This gives you the opportunity to submit scores for handicap purposes outside of competition and to see if you can improve your handicap! Each player is entitled to 12 of these a year starting from 1st March (limited to one per week). A player intending to return a Supplementary Score is required to signify this intention prior to commencement of play. You can do this by signing the black book that is kept behind reception in the Pro Shop. On completion of your round the card goes in the Scorecard Box also in the Pro Shop.
For more details on supplementary rounds you can click here.
