The Executive Committee after a lengthy meeting has decided to place two proposals at the AGM this November 2016.
Proposition 1:- The Executive Committee felt that as a golfing society we should be encouraging the social aspect of the Three Counties Summer League with less emphasis on winning trophies and more emphasis on developing long lasting friendships between all clubs in the three counties.
To this end it is proposed to run a one league system over a two year trial period based on the "Rugby Six Nations" type fixtures.
Proposition 2:- That a maximum shot limit of 9 is introduced for the 2017 season.
PROPOSED BY CARMARTHEN AND SECONDED BY GLYNHIR...
Proposal 3:- The minimum handicap to be changed to 15.
Proposal 4:- 4 points for an away win, 3 for a home win, 2 for an away half, 1 for a home half. No bonus system.
Proposal 5:- Minimum 8 pairs but since no bonus system a visiting team could be 9 or 10 pairs to encourage people to play. The captain decides who plays with who, irrespective of handicap.
Proposal 6: - Appointment of Executive Committee... Proposed by Glyn Abbey and seconded by South Pembs That Rhys Jones of Glyn Abbey Rabbit's be Secretary of Three Counties Summer League.
Proposal 7:- Proposed that the Current Chairman Richard Evans be appointed as Vice President of the Three Counties Summer League for the coming season 2017. Further Mr. Kerry Rise to remain as President for the 2017 season.
