For all Club competitions players should pay £5* into the clubs bank account**. This must be paid preferably before, but no later than the day of the competition. When making the payment players must put the date of the competition and the players name in the reference field, preferably MMM-DD-name, eg Jun-25-S Cross. Please be aware that to correctly credit you with the payment that you have made you must use the correct description. Also please select 'same day transfer' otherwise it is 3 days before it is received and delays publication of the results.
Should you have any problems making this payment please contact Steve Cross, Club Treasurer, by email, email@example.com.
* This may be different for the Majors.
** Bank details can be found on both the ‘Rules’ and ‘Covid-19’ Tab on website.

We are delighted to share an article written by one of our junior members Lucy Bamford.
In the article Lucy talks about the support that she received from the lady members at our club which encouraged her to continue playing golf when she was learning the game.
Lucy continues to play regularly with the ladies and it is a pleasure to see how her game has improved since she joined ELGC
