Dear Golfing Members,

With regards to the Electronic Direct Mailer (EDM) on “Pairing Regulations for Two Golfers” sent out via the Orchid News Stream on 13 January 2017, the Management had gathered various feedback and suggestions over the past weeks from members with regards to the Two Ball play regulations and had further consultation with the Greens Committee to streamline and improve on the implementation of the 2-ball play policy and procedures; which are subjected to pairing by the Golf Registration Counter and availability of time-slots.

Appended below, please find the procedure for any 2-ball/golfers who wish to make a golf booking:

Step 1: Call the Golf Registration Counter at 6750 2102/ 2111 or email golfregistration@orchidclub.com to register your interest to play;
Step 2: The Golf Registration Staff will assist to pair the golfers to form a flight based on available time-slots; and
Step 3: Upon successful pairing, golfers will be informed of an allocated time slot to play.

With the above pairing procedure, it will offer golfers the flexibility to play anytime of the day, subject to availability of time-slots. In the event where a 2-ball flight cannot be paired, golfers will be allowed to tee-off at the last slot of every golfing session on Weekdays (excluding Weekends and Public Holidays) as follows, and subject to availability of time-slot for:
•    Mornings               
•    Afternoons
•    Evenings
•    Walking
•    Night Golf (Valid on Thursdays only, unless otherwise stated)

We thank you very much for your valuable feedback and suggestions,

to serve you better.

In order to accentuate the exclusivity of the members’ carpark, the Club will be installing the Vehicle IU Identification & Detection Car Parking Barrier at the current ingress and egress members’ parking facility located at the basement.

The installation is targeted to complete in April/May 2017. As such, a notification shall be sent to inform members to submit their vehicle IU numbers for input into the new parking system database by 15 March 2017. After the barrier goes into operation, access to the carpark will be via approved In-Vehicle Unit (IU) identification only.

A manual parking barrier system shall also be erected at the Club Main Entrance next to our Security Guard post 1 to manage and control vehicles access into the Club after operating hours to deter unauthorised vehicle access with the exception of Orchid Lodge hotel guests and our tenants.

Below is the floor plan showing the location spots where the barrier system will be setup.

On 4 August 2016, SGA launched the Centralised Handicapping System (CHS). All members must register at the SGA CHS website at chs.sga.org.sg before they can use CHS. If you have not registered, you will not be eligible to compete in any Club competitions. There are two terminals (Golf Registration Counter & Outside the Changing Rooms) at the Club where you can access to CHS.

 

CHSMachine

 

If you need assistance on registration, please contact OCC Golf Registration at 6750 2111 or golfregistration@orchidclub.com. Our golfing staff will guide you on how to register for CHS.

During registration, golfers are required to fill in the data requested and indicate that they give consent to their data being collected, used and/or disclosed. This may include their name, gender, golf club(s) of which they are a member, membership number, Handicap Index, scoring records, dates and places of play.

Golfers who have registered will be able to perform all their handicapping activities via multiple channels, including web, their iOS or Android devices and their club’s terminals. With such user friendly options to choose from, posting scores and checking handicaps will be a breeze.

For more information about CHS, please refer to CHS FAQ at SGA website www.sga.org.sg

Being part of the Labour Movement community, our Greens Committee had initiated OCC to enhance social inclusiveness by allowing the Golf Corporate Union and MGK members to participate in all Club-organised golf events. This initiative was implemented in late 2015.

Therefore, beginning 2016, the Club organised the OCC U Medals (Monthly Series) for these two groups of members. The response for the sign up was well-received but has since gradually slowed down.

As such, to facilitate the logistics planning and players’ pairing by the Golfing Department for the aforementioned event, the Greens Committee will merge both the OCC Monthly Medals and OCC U Medals (Monthly Series) as one event, effective 1 January 2017. The event title will remain as “OCC Monthly Medals”.

For more information, please contact the Golfing Department at 6750 2102/111 or email golfregistration@orchidclub.com

We thank you for your continuous support in our events and look forward to tee-ing off with you soon.

Recently, there is an increase in the number of dangerous play in the golf course where the golfer took a stroke without ensuring that the flight ahead is out of sight and/or out of range.

Please refer to the OCC Golf Bye-Laws, Golf General Rules (page 12) para 2.3 on Dangerous Play and avoid the following four circumstances to ensure a pleasant golfing experience:

1. Taking a stroke when the players in front are clearly NOT out of range;

2. Taking a stroke without due care and attention to other persons on the course;

3. Failure to shout 'fore' or give warning to other players upon hitting a wayward shot that islikely to cause injury to the persons on the course; and

4. Should the flight ahead be playing at a slower pace, please exercise restraint and patience.

The Club Management takes a serious view on Dangerous Play. Any member who breaches any of the guidelines as set out in the Golf Bye-Laws (Clause 22) will be referred to the Disciplinary Committee for further action that may lead to suspension of the member’s golfing privileges.
 
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

As you know, the Club had invested and installed Strike Guard, an early lightning warning system to enhance the safety of our members, guests, staff and course maintenance crew from the impending dangers of being outdoors during lightning storms. This is a part of the Club’s safety audit and risk mitigation carried out for its golfing, social and recreational facilities. The new monitoring system is certainly an enhancement over the manual handheld system.
 
Strike Guard employs state-of-the-art technology to address the most demanding lightning safety and equipment protection applications.  The system monitors cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning and provides contact-closure signaling at user-set lightning activity thresholds.  Its patented optical signal processing and proprietary optical-coincidence technology prevent false alarms. 
 
The advantage of Strike Guard is that it automatically monitors and tracks lightning activities from 32km. Once lightning activity is detected at a pre-set distance, it will trigger a course closure warning early enough to allow golfers to be cleared from our golf course including those who are walking, instead of using buggies. 
 
After conducting various trials during the initial period, the Club has settled on at least 5km as the closest distance that detection of imminent lightning activity will trigger a course closure automatically.
 
Thereafter, the system continues to track lightning activity while Golfing staff supplement and closely monitor the system and reopen the course only when it is safe to do so; and after an inspection of the course has been made to ensure that it is in playable condition.
 
The system is operational between 6 am and 10.59 pm daily.
 
Meanwhile we wish to thank all members for your patience while the trials were being conducted in the past weeks. We seek your kind understanding as the safety of all members and guests at the Club is of prime concern.

As part of the Club’s efforts to enhance your membership value and in response to members’ feedback, we have recently added more local reciprocal and access clubs. We are pleased that there is overwhelming response from usage of these new affiliations.

Nevertheless, to ensure that all golfing members enjoy the playing privileges at our local affiliated clubs, kindly note the following:

• Golfing Gold and Silver members are allowed to book only one slot per month at local reciprocal and access clubs.

• Should there be available slots 48 hours before; the booking will then be open to members who have already booked in the month.

For booking of slots and enquiry of availability, please call 6750 2111 or email golfregistration@orchidclub.com.
