Insurance and Use of Buggies on the Course

There is now a small card for you to take away re the members and signed-on visitors insurance cover we now have - they are in Cottage 2.  Remember that any claim has to be made promptly and through the secretary who will issue claim forms. It should also be noted that "the ownership, possession, maintenance or use by any member or visitor or on behalf of any member or visitor of any buggy"is SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED.

The Machrie have introduced a Buggy & Trolley Policy which I understand you have to sign to take a buggy out - mostly common sense, but it states "Any person who operates a buggy on the course....will be fully accountable for their actions and the consequences thereof". It does not mention insurance, so if you are a regular buggy user you may wish to investigate taking out personal cover for buggy use. Carrick Neil, through whom we have our insurance, can offer this on a per person basis - there are advertising cards for this in Cottage 2. No doubt there are many other people offering such cover and this is not an endoresement from the club for Carrick Neil's policy.

In the light of preliminary discussions with the new hotel management, Islay Golf Club has now closed its Country Membership list to new applications (those few currently in train will be accepted). This DOES NOT AFFECT existing Country Members. Those who are currently "retained" will be given a once only opportunity to upgrade next season, or they can do so now.

Any new applications will be placed on a waiting list. There will be a cap on the number of Country Members to be agreed with the Hotel, at which point the waiting list will be contacted with up to date information on the likelhood of gaining membership.

Local memberships are still available - for the time being, "local" means if your main place of residence is on Islay or Jura or if you have frequent access to your holiday home here. Other requests will be dealt with on a case by case basis.

Your attention is drawn to a couple of new documents (under General Information) which will be updated as and when necessary.  The first is "Rules and Codes" which outlines the rules placed upon members as part of our agreement with the Machrie Hotel. The second "Committee Decisions" is a record of current committee decisions which affect the running of the club and its competitions.

Machrie Golf Links Seeding of the new fairways and approaches has now begun.

Could all golfers please stay off these areas wherever possible.

If you need to retrieve your ball, please take the shortest direct route leaving your trolley or buggy on the original fairways.

All construction areas will remain G.U.R. and relief must be taken.

Your cooperation and assistance with this will ensure the new areas have a higher rate of germination and ultimately establishment for us all to enjoy.

Thank You

Dean Muir Course Manager
