Members are requested, upon arrival at each course, to immediately register at the TGC Registration Desk. 

Should a Member, after registering on the website, find himself unable to attend a fixture, it is his responsibility to advise his partner, endeavour to secure a replacement and have the time sheet altered. If a Member cancels within 24 hours of a resort course game, and does not find a replacement, he will be charged the fee for the day.

The Single Event Trophies are for Members only and all single events are Stableford except for the Club Championships.

Visitors, who must be accompanied by a Member, are welcome on all days and are eligible for trophies as defined herein.

Once a month we will play for the Monthly Mug. It is an additional trophy donated by Tattersall’s Golf Club, and is for Members only. Members are entitled to wine one Monthly Mug in any one calendar year. On the game prior to the last game in November there will be a play off between all the year’s Monthly Mug winners for the Mug of Mugs Trophy.
No player is eligible to receive two trophies on one day, with the exception of:
(a) Monthly Mugs
(b) On the second Club Championship day when Championship Winners and Runners-Up are eligible for the Best 36 Hole Nett Event.
N.B. The 4BBB Event is the Premier Event (other than single Honour Board events).

Members and their Guests should note:

  1. All Clubs now require soft spikes.

  2. Members are required to have played at least one game prior to The Tattersall’s Cup; two games prior to the Eric G. Oxenford Jug; three games prior to The Memorial Day Trophy and The President's Cup and four games prior to the commencement of the Club Championships (Gross and Nett Events).

  3. The Bob Templeton Memorial Shield is a 4BBB knockout event. The top 16 Teams of Members will qualify and matchplay conditions will prevail for the knockout rounds and the final.

  4. The “Oscar” is awarded on attendance and the best six Single Stableford scores and best six 4BBB scores over the year. Accordingly it is important that all cards are returned. Trophy is donated by Tattersall’s Golf Club.

  5. To be eligible for each daily event all correctly completed single score cards must be signed and returned immediately on completion of play.


CONDITIONS OF PLAY:
The Rules of Golf, the Local Rules and the By-Laws of the Club are the rules of play. 

A ball must be played out until no Single Stableford points can be scored, at which point it must be lifted (does not apply for Stroke/Matchplay games).

4BBB partners should swap their single cards with players of the opposing 4BBB team.

Players must cease play immediately in the event a Lightning Warning Signal is sounded by the host Golf Club.

HIT OFF TIMES MUST BE STRICTLY OBSERVED.

Please observe etiquette; play quickly - 4.25 hours per round is achievable.

OUR SOCIAL CLUB HANDICAPPING SYSTEM:

Its Aim……..
As a Social Cub we play more for the 'Spirit and Enjoyment' of the 'Great game of Golf' rather than for the prizes, and as such we would therefore like to spread those Prizes and Trophies over as many of our Members as possible.
How it works………
All TGC Members to use their daily handicaps.
Each time you win an event, you will be deducted points from your future Single Stableford and 4BBB scores. The number of points deducted will depend on which Grade you play in, A, B or C (as per the following table) and the number of times you win during that year. Your 4BBB deduction will be the total of you and your partner’s current points deduction, divided by two.

Daily Handicaps and Social Club Handicap……
The adjusted points (as shown in table) will impact your Tattersall’s Social Club score from which will be determined by the winners of the day. Whilst your daily handicap score (unadjusted) will be entered into the GOLF Link Handicapping System.
Your Tattersalls’ Social Club points deduction will remain relevant the entire year and will revert back to zero at the beginning of the following year.

Does this apply to all events……
No! The following competitions are played on daily handicap only and your Social points deduction does not apply:-
Club Championships – both rounds, all grades: Monthly Mug events
Bob Templeton Memorial Shield, all qualifying rounds and finals – Refer Templeton Format.
Woodrow Cup, Tattersall's Cup, Eric G Oxenford Single Stableford Jug (both rounds), Championship Nett Trophies (both rounds).

Match Committee's Decision will be final.  No correspondence will be entered into.

TATTERSALL'S GOLF CLUB HISTORY:

IMPORTANT TROPHIES

The Club Champion

The Boyce Family kindly donated the Cup won by W.F.R Boyce to Tattersall’s Golf Club which will be engraved annually with the name of the Club Champion. The inaugural presentation was made in 2004.
