4. Matters Arising
4.1. Frank Finan has had a productive correspondence with Alexandra Carapinha on the matter of buggy availability. Consequently from March 2019, 6 to 8 new buggies will be available. Rui Gloria was pleased that the club had got involved, as he has been pressing for more buggies. Members who have paid for annual buggies can only expect to have a buggy available if they book their tee time in advance. Should they then find their buggy is unavailable they should protest the situation and Rui has agreed to monitor the situation.
4.2. The Race to Budens. In response to the feedback from members the prize money will not be changed and will remain as in previous years. The Race to Budens was originally set up to be a measure of performance and to enable members to see where the prize money was going. The situation will be reviewed in the New Year. Frank Finan to respond to John Elliot’s letter.
