INSURANCE

PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE

Your County Veterans Association has NCVLGA Group Public Liability Insurance (& Employers Liability Insurance for unpaid volunteers) cover in place for named & dated county events in 2018 in respect of all directly related golf activities using the facilities of the declared venues
The cover strictly EXCLUDES ANY PARTICIPANT TO PARTICIPANT DAMAGE unless the cause is directly attributable to the Organisation(s) negligence

                                                        PERSONAL LIABILITY INSURANCE

  If you do not already have PERSONAL LIABILITY INSURANCE cover, you should seriously consider it


                                                       DISTANCE MEASURING DEVICES - DMDS

In line with recent decisions made by England Golf/EWGA, the Yorkshire Veteran Ladies Golf Asociation will allow the use of DMDs in their competitions, under local rule of the competition venue. See Rule Appendix 1V-5

                                                                                                 The DMD's must measure distance only
If during a stipulated round a player uses a DMD that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions (e.g. gradient, wind speed, temperature, etc.) the player is in breach of Rule 14.3, for which the penalty is disqualification regardless of whether any such additional function is actually being used


No Penalty for Moving a Ball on the Putting Green (Download here)
Current Rule: Under Rule 18-2, if a player (or opponent) accidentally causes the player's ball to move anywhere on the course, there is a one-stroke penalty (unless one of several exceptions applies).
Proposed Rule: Under new Rule 13.1, there would no longer be a penalty if a player (or opponent) accidentally causes the player's ball to move on the putting green.
The substance of this Rule change has already been implemented as of 1 January 2017 by authorising Committees to adopt a Local Rule that eliminates the penalty for accidentally moving a ball on the putting green.
Reasons for Change:
*The shape, slope and condition of many putting greens today increase the chances that a ball at rest on the putting green might move, and it can be difficult to determine whether a player caused the ball to move or whether the ball was moved by wind or other natural causes.
*When a ball moves while the player is doing nothing more than taking normal actions to prepare for a stroke, it can seem unfair for the player to be penalised.
*Most "ball moved" situations occur on the putting green, involve minimal movement of the ball, frequently occur when the player is taking reasonable actions to prepare for a stroke and the ball can be replaced easily.
*These considerations are not the same when the ball lies off the putting green, and so the penalty would continue to apply (wuth exceptions, such as accidentally moving a ball during search) to a player or opponent in those circumstances to reinforce the principle that the ball should be played as it lies and that the players should continue to exercise care when near to a ball in play.
                                                                     Adopted by YVLGA as a Local Rule for ALL COMPETITIONS - 18 March 2017                                                                                                (regardless of whether a club has adopted it or not), until it becomes a full R&A rule in 2019; as the YVLGA is an Association

Recording of Non-Qualifying Scores from England Golf (Download here)
From January 1st 2017 England Golf requires players to return all scores in competetive golf in Non-Qualifying Competitions away from the player's home club.
This applies to all Singles, Am-Am and 4BBB competitions.
Each Club should have put a process in place for the recording of this information.
It is the player's responsibility to do this and the information to be recorded as follows:
* Date of competition
* Format (inc H'cap Allowance)
*Venue/Course
*Tees Used
*SSS of course
*Names of playing partners ( if a team/pairs event)
*Score returned
Failure to do this could result in loss, or suspension, of handicap under clause 24.1
The YVLGA will be returning the top 5 scores from each competition to the relevant Club Handicap Secretary
