T L Darby Volkswagen. When you’re ready for a test drive, so are we. Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption and CO2 figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. There is a new test used for fuel consumption and CO2 figures (known as WLTP).

The CO2 figures shown however, are based on a calculation designed to be equivalent to the outgoing (NEDC) test cycle and will be used to calculate vehicle tax on first registration. For more information, please see www.volkswagen.co.uk/owners/wltp or consult your retailer. Data correct at 12/2018. Figures quoted are for a range of configurations and are subject to change due to ongoing approvals/changes. Please consult your retailer for further information. Official fuel consumption figures for the Volkswagen model range in mpg (litres/100km): combined 31.4 (9.0) – 58.9 (4.8). Combined CO2 emissions 95 – 173 g/km.

The appropriate green fee must be paid prior to the round and all visitors and guests must display their tag on their golf bag to indicate that they have paid their fee. The Club reserves the right to refuse players onto the course at any time.
  • Membership Bag Tags: Members should display their bag tag prominently in order for the Golf Team to properly check it without disturbing your play..
  • Tees: All general play must be off the yellow tees unless prior permission is given by the Golf Manager, who will notify the Golf Lodge.

Please take care not to be heavy-handed when placing bags on the ground.
  • Golf Buggies: In order to hire a buggy, a driver must possess a full driving licence. No more than two persons are to share a buggy and there should be a maximum of two golf bags on the back.

However, ALL other competitions on the Championship course are only open to gents with a Maximum handicap of 35 & ladies with a maximum handicap of 40 unless otherwise stated. Detailed information on all competitions can be found on the golf notice boards in both locker rooms. Medal, Stableford or Max Score competitions: Book a tee time and pay your entry fee at the Golf Lodge before you play (ladies should pay in their locker room). Junior boys whose handicaps exceed 35 & girls whose handicaps exceed 40 are not allowed to play in Monthly Medals but may play in Monthly Stableford or Max score competitions.

Majors: To be entered into the draw, write your name on the sheets in the locker rooms. Start times are published 16 days before the competition, both on the golf noticeboard in the Locker Rooms Branston Fixture Diary 19.indd 34 05/02/2019 09:03

and on the Master Scoreboard website. For further details on Master Scoreboard, and to obtain a password, please ask at the Golf Lodge or call 01283 528320. Knockouts (gents): Write your name (and the name of your playing partner/s, if applicable), telephone number, membership number on the outside of an envelope containing your entry fee and post in the red letterbox in the Gents’ locker room before the stipulated closing date.

Late entries cannot be accepted and details of the draws and deadlines for each round of the competition will be posted on the golf noticeboard in the Locker Room and on the Master Scoreboard website. Juniors are required to hold a CONGU handicap (boys max 35/girls max 40) to be eligible to win a Junior Major Competition. However, if their handicaps are above these limits, they will still be welcome to take part in a separate competition.

Returning Scorecards and Entering Scores into the Computer The Rules of Golf state (Rule 3.3b (1)): a. Markers Responsibility: Entering & Certifying Hole Scores on Scorecard. After each hole during the round, the marker should confirm the score with the competitor and record it. On completion of the round the marker must sign the scorecard and hand it to the competitor. If more than one marker records the scores, each must sign for the part for which he is responsible. b. Signing and Returning Score Card (Rule 3.3b (2)) After completion of the round, the competitor should check his score for each hole and settle any doubtful points with the Committee.

He must ensure that the marker or markers have signed the scorecard, sign the scorecard himself and return it to the Committee as soon as possible. In our case, “returning it to the Committee” means entering the scores into the Computer and then (for gents) posting the card into the slot in the top of Computer Room Cupboard in the Computer Room.

For ladies put your completed scorecards in the silver box on the right-hand wall in the Computer Room. Cards that are not returned when closing the competition has an impact on the Competition Standard Scratch calculation for each competition and therefore impacts on other members’ handicaps. Any member who fails to return a scorecard after completing their competition rounds will then be banned by the Committees for the next three eligible qualifying competitions ‘if reasonable justification cannot be given’.
