Vets’ 10th Tee Concession
 
Recognising that the 10th hole provides some serious 'driving' difficulties for some older members and those with a degree of physical difficulty, both the Tuesday Committee and Thursday Organisers, acting in consultation with the members, have decided:
 
USE OF ALTERNATE TEE
That those older Veteran players who feel that they do have a serious problem with the upper tee position of this hole may tee off from the lower, white tee (behind the ladies' 10th tee).
 
2-STROKE PENALTY
That players availing themselves of this option will incur a two-shot penalty. That is, their score for the tenth hole will be the number of strokes played plus two penalty strokes.
 
NOTE
This concession now applies to both Tuesday and Thursday Vets golf. Whilst this concession originally applied only to the Tuesday Vets golf programme, it is also extended to Tuesday match play events that are normally played on a Thursday, ie, The Brass Monkey and The Masters Trophy events.
