1. Seating to start with will be in the ground floor main lounge and is restricted to a maximum of 26. Please do not move chairs or tables from how they have been laid out. The House Committee will look at alternatives to the main lounge if demand requires this.

2. There is a one way system in operation which must be adhered to. Entry via The Balfour Street door and Exit via the ground floor lounge door to the balcony over Scoonie Burn.

3. On entry you must use the hand sanatiser. There are hand sanatiser stations located throughout the Clubhouse please use them regularly and or wash your hands thoroughly on a regular basis.

4. All drink and food to be served in the lounge must be ordered via the Bar and payment where possible should be made using contactless card payment.

Drawn Medals

A player is not permitted to move his tee time without prior approval from the Sports Committee. The Pro Shop controls the 1st tee and will make minor changes to ensure the smooth running of the competition, however they have been asked not to make significant changes to the draw and any requests should be made to Sports via email sports@leventhistlegc.co.uk.

24 June 2020

The draw has been made for the 2020 Donaldson Jug and 2020 Findlay Shield.

Arranging our matchplay ties will be very different this year: we are accustomed to using folders in the locker room. Until the current situation changes this isn’t possible, therefore we ask that these matches are arranged via email, phone or text.

Do your very best to arrange these ties amicably and be considerate towards your opponent’s playing constraints. If for any reason the tie has not been played or awarded, then neither player will advance to the next round.

If you don’t have contact details for your opponent, please contact Sports at sports@leventhistlegc.co.uk.

We will contact your opponent and ask for permission to share their details.

Following the First Minister’s update yesterday, Scottish Golf have issued Phase 2 Guidance for Golfers and Golf Clubs.

2 June 2020

As we get back to playing golf once more the Sports committee wants to make plans for the resumption of competitive golf.

I have attached a PDF which outlines how using the capabilities of masterscoreboard and an app for mobile phones, we can safely run qualifying medals, please familiarise yourself with this. 

There will be a non qualifying sweep this Thursday, Saturday & Sunday, details will follow soon. 

Subject to LLJC approval we would like to resume no courtesy medals on Thursday 11th June and all being well the first qualifying round for the Baird Cup on Saturday 27th June. 

The Donaldson Jug, Finlay Shield and Masterton Trophy matchplays are live for entry, we plan to make the draw for these in the week commencing 22nd of June, there will be 15 days between each round and we ask that you are careful not to overstretch by committing to playing in too many, a temporary modification to the matchplay rules will be issued.

Please keep an eye on your inbox for further details. 

Best Regards

The Sports Committe

Matchplay Competitions
Within the 'My Golf' section on the Master Scoreboard website you can check your future matchplay games. This will show who your opponent is and when the tie must be played by.
Record your result on the PES (Player Entry System) in the lounge as well as on the printed draw.
We ask you not to write anything other than the result on the draw as the draw sheet will be reprinted.
Arrange your tie following the instructions/rules displayed on the board, an example of how to complete the form is printed in each folder. Failure to follow these rules will result in forfeit of your match.
There will be no extension to dates.
Members’ contact details can be found in a separate folder. If your details are wrong, please let us know so we can update our records.

Strokeplay Competitions
Remember to sign into the medal via the PES before you play, scores will not be accepted if you have simply forgotten to sign-in. In a drawn competition there is no need to sign-in. Record your score via the PES and pop your card into the box, this includes NRs.

Master Scoreboard


Within the My Golf menu you’ll find My Future Knock Out Matches which we feel will be very useful to those who have many ties to play.

The draws are printed and pinned on the locker room notice board. We ask you to record the result of your match on the paper draw but also via the Player Entry System (PES touchscreen in the lounge). User instructions are displayed above the screen.

As the competition progresses, the results will be published to Master Scoreboard each Tuesday and the draw reprinted.
