Members and Guests
Dear Member,

The Club


Please diarise the below dates for the Ladies AGM, Company AGM and Club AGM.
Ladies AGM – Saturday, 28th August 2021
Company AGM – Monday, 13th September 2021
Club AGM – Monday, 20th September 2021
We look forward to seeing you there!

This past weekend, we measured winds close to 30km/h, and if that was not bad enough, the mercury only reached a mere 16 degrees on Saturday. These windy, cold conditions made playing out on the courses very difficult and reflected in the scores.

A few members popped into the office and were curious whether their score was good enough to be considered for a prize. We advise players to always hand in their scores as results are only final once all scorecards are submitted.

Rule of the Week

Submitting a scorecard for Club Competitions:

Today, we are also going to look at the basics when it comes to submitting a scorecard for a club competition. Over the last couple of weeks, we have noticed players are not filling in all the information on their submitted scorecards.

What are the marker’s responsibilities?
All players full names (Name and Surname) must be filled in.
The Club policy is to ensure members account numbers are also on the scorecard – if you do have a visitor in your fourball, the affiliated Club or HNA number must be on the card.
Handicap Index (HI), Course Handicap (CH) and Playing Handicap (PH) must all be on the scorecard next to the players’ names.
All scores on each hole must be completed.
The player and marker's signature must be on the card before submitting the scorecard.

What is the penalty for submitting the wrong score on a hole or wrong scorecard?

Under Rule 3.3b(3) if the player returns a scorecard with a wrong score for any hole the following will be implemented:
• Returned score higher than actual score: The higher score for the hole will stand.
• Returned score lower than the actual score or no score returned: The player is disqualified.

However, there is an exception to the rule – Failure to include unknown Penalty.
If one or more of the player’s hole scores are lower than the actual scores because he or she excluded one or more penalty strokes that the player did not know about before returning the scorecard:
The player is not disqualified.
Instead, if the mistake is found before the close of the competition, the committee/scorer will revise the player’s score for that hole or holes by adding the penalty stroke(s) that should have been included in the score for that hole or holes under the Rules.

This exception does not apply:
When the excluded penalty is disqualification or,
When the player was told that the penalty might apply, or was uncertain whether a penalty applied, and did not raise this with the committee/scorer before returning the scorecard.

Printer Cartridge Recycling with 123mds and Randpark Club

We may still look like the new kid on the block, calling the shots by inviting you to partake in something other than a great round of golf ...

As important as it is to play a round of golf with the members of Randpark Club, is how important the environment is to us ... now that’s very important!

123mds, an Authorised Partner of Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa, is participating in the Kyocera Recycling Programme extended to all Kyocera Partners.

123mds invites all Randpark Club members, together with Carbon Footprint Recycling, to help battle against e-waste by disposing of empty laser and copier toner cartridges, ink cartridges, and waste toner bottles in the proper manner.

The idea was borne out of the need to keep hazardous materials out of landfill sites. Printer cartridges in their decomposed state are hazardous.

Carbon Footprint Recycling creates concrete-based products such as dustbins, vegetable planters and benches out of the recycled cartridges.

Recycling printer cartridges is the right thing to do and there are other benefits, such as job creation and reducing waste that is sent to landfills.

Some interesting facts:
Hundreds of thousands of cartridges are sold into the market every month and less than 20% of these are recycled.
An average of 1,3kg is added to the landfill each time a laser cartridge is thrown away.
It takes 3,8 litres of oil to make a laser printer cartridge.
Put all the cartridges sold in one year end-to-end and it would circumnavigate the earth 3 times!

Recycle your printer cartridges with 123mds, Kyocera and Carbon Footprint Recycling by:
Bringing your empty cartridges to the Club and putting them in the collection bin in the main reception area.
Contact us via email at carmen@123mds.co.za or alternatively click here for more information on this recycling programme.

Have a great week
Stay Safe, Healthy & Happy!
