    Re: Letting people through while in a comp?

    Interesting this as I've lost count of the amount of times I've had the words "Sorry, we would let you through but we're in the competition" thrown at me when out having a round on my own...

    I'm quite quick when playing in a group, I'm even quicker when I'm on my own, it's almost as if "playing in the comp" affords them superior status over every other "paying" member...

    On the flip side to that is that I'm "not" a paying member, I'm one of the greens staff and I get membership as part of my pay deal, being very conscious of this fact and being an all round 'nice bloke' I'm more than happy to tail along behind a comp and will 'happily' turn down any invite to play through...

    Never heard of fixed tee slots for comps

    Considering modern working lives, shifts, time restraints, etc......

    Your club just seems to keep giving 😉
    How do you mean fixed tee slots? I don't understand your reply mate.

    Fixed/designated/limited , inclusive even......
    You said the "last" comp slot was 230

    I'm saying at clubs I've been a member at, I'm free to play the comp at anytime through the day, any tee time, whilst there's enough daylight to get around

    You know the course will be full of Golfers trying to make a score and hopefully being able to concentrate on that without some inconsiderate players who are out for a friendly knock trying to force their way through them.
    I don't get it, I really don't.
    Now you're just being an idiot. Bloody hell, some of the trolls in this place.

    We have a last off time partly at the request of the comp secretary who wants to be able to close off and still have his Saturday night out. We don't have huge numbers playing our comps so it does not bother anyone but I was talking with guys on Saturday, from Tyneside GC, who can have 180-190 in a comp. They must need all the light available to get that many golfers around so I suspect there are no restrictions there.

    In some clubs it sometimes does...most often in respect of 1st tee priority, but also when a group playing a match catches a group on a tee. The group teeing off will sometimes realise the group behind is probably playing a match and will ask 'are you playing a match?' if the answer is in the affirmative the match will be asked if they'd like to play through.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Can understand in a way from your clubs view, admin side, but I'm sure comps can be closed automatically via computer scoring system, or even closed the next day

    But some clubs with huge membership numbers, like you've said, this can't work
    Like Tyneside
    Same at westerhope and city of Newcastle, where I've been a member at, big membership numbers, big comp entries
    Plus, whickham, where stu and Dave play, have a huge turnout too

    Similar to our place I think, they started to put a cut off time on after entry closed. You used to be able to phone up the pro and get added on later but they stopped it this year for some reason.

    You need to join a proper club mate 😜

    Where you can play when you like, people wave you through, there's no shouting and fighting on the course, and no leather wedges😂😂

    No complaints from me mate, it's better than Coronation Street our place. I was only asking about being let through during a comp out of interest mate, if I'm not entered into it I wouldn't even contemplate bothering those who are competing.
