Ref: 2009-9

Voting

A vote is required for any amendment or extension to the constitution or for any rule change, arbitration or executive decision made under its remit, unless the constitution itself or properly legislated rules expressly provide for an exception.

Proposals

Where a vote is required it must be first proposed by an eligible member and then seconded by a different eligible member else it is unlawful.

Vote Validity and Absences

A voting result is valid if all eligible participants were forewarned. If all eligible persons are present within the immediate physical locale on a Society event they are considered forewarned and a straw-poll is valid. Otherwise notification is required to forewarn and such notification must be timely (7 days in advance) and appropriate (the eligible member would be reasonably expected to receive the communication).
Nominations must be seconded within 10 minutes (physical locale) or 24 hours (virtual – e.g. email) or the proposal is defeated.
To be eligible to nominate, second, or vote, the member must have participated in 2 Major tournaments in the preceding Tour.
Furthermore, prospective voters are automatically ineligible by Absence. Absence means that any individual not attending a society event, or missing the timely and appropriate communication, is ineligible for that vote and can not retrospectively influence the outcome.

Carried Votes

A Returned vote must be unambiguously either for or against the proposition or in the case of an Election Vote a single candidate.
A Simple Majority Vote (SMV) is carried when more of the Returned and Eligible votes are in favour of a particular proposition.
A Qualified Majority Vote (QMV) is carried by a minimum of two thirds of Returned and Eligible votes.

Elections

Membership

Membership can be proposed and seconded by any Member at any Time. New Members are appointed by a QMV of the Board2007-3.
Players introduced at official WHV tournaments are automatically considered members unless they do not wish it or any member of the board objects.2007-3.1
Membership grants right of entry to any Society event, and a vote on any proposal opened to membership. Members have a constitutional right to propose, second and vote in Votes of Confidence and Election Votes.

Elected Positions

Nominations may only arise at a General meeting. The President decides whether any arbitrary meeting is General. There is always a General meeting at the End of Season Society bash (Annual General Meeting, AGM) 2007-4. All elected board positions are vacated at this meeting and a new board is elected. There is no bar on previous members being re-elected to the same, or a different, board position. All members are entitled to any voting proposition during the meeting.

Board Membership Votes

Individuals may nominate (propose) themselves for election. Unopposed candidates are automatically elected. All WHV Golf society members have a single vote. Where competition arises, each round of balloting eliminates the candidate with the lowest amount of votes. If candidates with least votes have an equal amount they are both eliminated. Where the vote is tied across the remaining candidates, the President casts the deciding vote.

Votes of No Confidence

A vote of no confidence in the board may be proposed by any eligible member. Should the vote be carried by SMV of all eligible members all elected positions become vacant immediately, an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) is held and re-election must start forthwith.

Other Votes

All other proposed votes are passed by Qualified Majority, considered under the constitution to mean a minimum Two-thirds Majority of Returned and Eligible votes.
As an example, suppose vote membership consists of 8 persons, with 8 returns at least 6 votes must be for the proposition, with 6 returns at least 4 votes.

Appeals

Eligible members may appeal on grounds of polling validity or unlawfulness in proposal. Any WHV Society Member may appeal a proposal, rule change, or direction on grounds of unfairness. Appeals are decided upon by the Chairman after allowing for representations by the individual, the Constitutional Advocate and the Players’ Representative.

Competition Rules and Scoring

The Rules of Tour supersede any other formal law. Where they don’t apply, Local Rules and the Royal and Ancient Rules of Golf are the sole authorities in that order, with the following exceptions:

R1 Recording of Scores

R1.1 Scores can be recorded on a single unsigned card by a single person if everyone within the recorder’s playing group accedes.

R2 ‘Gimmees’ and ‘Tap-Ins’

R2.1 The Competition Sponsor may allow ‘gimmees’. He will stipulate the conditions under which they are given, but a player may never grant a ‘gimmee’ to themselves or someone on their own team.
Ref 2009-24
R2.1.1 Scorers for groups should encourage the granting of gimmees if it will speed up play and the recipient is not the group leader at the time.

R2.2 On the accedence of another player whose ball lies off the green, a player may ‘tap-in’ from the green while the flag is in place in order to not slow the game down.

R3 Sharing of Clubs

R3.1 The Competition Sponsor may allow the sharing of clubs, including the borrowing of clubs for shots, under situations other than those allowed by rule 4.4 of the R&A Rules of Golf, but must stipulate the conditions that allow this.

R4 Lost Balls

R4.1 If a player considers there is a significant chance their ball in play may not be found, they must play a provisional ball.
R4.2 In accordance with the Rules of Golf unless a ball is declared lost by a player before being discovered by any player, that is the ball in play and any replayed shot was provisional and is now dead.
R4.3 If a ball is looked for, declared lost and no provisional was played, the player has the option of dropping the ball at a position where the ball would most likely have finished due to the Strength and Direction of the shot.
R4.3.1 The player must have expended appropriate effort and care to look for the ball.
R4.3.2 The player scores as if his replayed shot had landed at this location. This is the equivalent of a 2 stroke penalty – i.e. If the ball was lost from the tee then the shot following the drop will be the 4th; if the ball was lost from the second shot on the hole it will be the 5th, etc.
R4.3.3 The ball can never be dropped in a cut of the course where the ‘lost’ ball would have been plainly visible; e.g. fairway or first cut rough. The ball must always be dropped on the nearest surface where loss is likely.
R4.3.4 If the lost area is a copse or similar where there will be natural obstacles to the flight of the next shot, the player must lob the ball into this area, attempting to mimic the flight of the lost ball to ensure the lie is fair in terms of obstruction to the next shot.
R4.3.5 If the group agree the ball has been pilfered or moved by a 3rd party then the drop is allowed on any surface without penalty
R4.3.6 If the strength and direction would have most likely placed the shot in a Hazard or Out of Bounds, then the usual scoring and placement options apply under the Rules of Golf or Local Rules.

R5 Sponsor’s Competition Rights

Ref: 2009-7
R5.1 For the avoidance of doubt, the Competition sponsor has the right to vary the following for their events:
• Event format.
• Event scoring method.
• To allow or disallow the sharing of clubs.
• To allow or disallow the granting of gimmees/tap-ins in a non mutliball format.
• The selection of spot prizes (Nearest the Pin and Longest Drive).
• Implementation of impromptu prizes/forfeits [e.g. hulk, krupnik/niblik challenge should it arise again].

Ref: 2008-2
R5.2 For spot prizes, the position of the ball must be marked and suitably identified as the current leader of the spot prize competition, before the player walks away from the position where the ball has landed having played his next shot, else that player is not entitled to claim the prize.

Ref 2008-21
R5.3 The following competition Trophies have been adopted – and are now officially owned – by the Society. Each must be replaced by as near as practically possible identical products if lost by, or stolen from, the current holder. They operate under the terms stated.
• The Claret Jug – held by the winner of the WHV Open who must return it to the society prior to the next WHV Open.
• The Green Jacket – held by the winner of the WHV Open who must return it to the society prior to the next WHV Open. The Green jacket must be worn by the holder during all WHVGS social events, including all periods on event days outside the actual playing of golf, unless authorised otherwise by the board.
• The HULK – held by the winner of the longest drive of each 18 holes in the WHV Open. Must be employed as a driver cover by the holder as soon as it is won and can be feasibly handed over. Must be employed as driver cover for the duration of it’s ownership throughout the Claret Jug weekend. Can be employed as a driver cover at other society or non society events by the holder. If the incumbent is out of the running for the longest drive during the WHV Open they must replace the long drive marker with the HULK. Holder can have their name embroidered on the HULK’s muscles.
• The Gibbon Cap – held by the winner of the Gibbon. To be worn at all times on the event day by the incumbent.
• The 1968 West Germany Munich Pottery Stein with Naff Hinged Metal Lid. Held by the winner of the Spittle Shield. To be employed by the holder for all drinking during the Claret Jug weekend unless otherwise authorised by the board.

R6 Avoidance of Slow Play

Ref: 2009-24
R6.1 If the player can not score Stapleforth or has lost a match play hole they must pick their ball up if not caused to wait by the group ahead.
R6.2 If the ball is lost in a place where it would be hard to find the member can only spend 3 minutes looking for it if not caused to wait by the group ahead.
R6.3 Players can and should take shots outside of the honours format from tee to green to speed up play. This includes the temporary removal of a flag (or not if R2.2. employed) to putt while waiting a player to walk to his ball.
R6.4 When on the green buggies, trolleys and bags must be parked between the green and the route to the next tee.


2009 Constitutional Amendments

2009-1: Revision of Ranking Points

The Board accepted changes suggested by the President in order to 1) Encourage Minors to be organised and played in without unduly affecting handicaps) 2) Promote the attendance at the Majors 3) Recognise the importance of the CJ weekend.
The below text shows the revisions made.
T2 Ranking Points
All Tour events lead to WHV Golf Society Ranking Points (WGSRPs). The member with the most WGSRPs is declared the winner of the WHV Order of Merit at the end of the season bash.
T2.1 To qualify for the WHV Order of Merit a member must have played in 2 majors that tour. Members are entitled to appeal to the board for clemency if extenuating circumstances have made this commitment impossible.
T2.2 Minor Events score as follows
T2.2.1 1st place scores (2 x number of Members actually playing) points
T2.2.2 Each subsequent place scores 3/4 [previously ½] the points of the previous place with a minimum points score for any competitor of a quarter of the winning points score. For a 10 player minor this would mean scores of 20, 15, 11, 8, 6, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4.
[Deleted T2.2.3 : The remaining members in the field score a point for turning up.]
T2.2.4 In Mutliball competitions, the winner is the person who won most holes with their ball etc.
T2.3 Major Events score as follows
T2.3.1 The points allocated to Minor Events (T2.2) are doubled [Previously trebled].
T2.3.2 There is an assumption that at least 6 members play no matter who turns up, i.e. the minimum point allocation to the winner is 36 24.
T2.3.4 All points are further doubled [Remains the same because Major multiple has been reduced to doubled rather than trebled] for the Claret Jug Weekend.
T2.2 Minor Events score as follows
T2.2.1 1st place scores (2 x number of Members actually playing) points
T2.2.2 Each subsequent place scores 1/2 the points of the previous place to a maximum of 1/2 the members in the field. (e.g. 4 or 5 members – top 2 only; 6 or 7 members – top 3 only; 8 or 9 top 4 etc.)
T2.2.3 The remaining members in the field score a point for turning up.
T2.2.4 In Mutliball competitions, the winner is the person who won most holes with their ball etc.
T2.3 Major Events score as follows
T2.3.1 The points allocated to Minor Events (T2.2) are trebled.
T2.3.2 There is an assumption that at least 6 members play no matter who turns up, i.e. the minimum point allocation to the winner is 36.
T2.3.4 All points are further doubled for the Claret Jug Weekend.

2009-2: Use of Yellow and Orange Shirts

The following was discussed, but its implementation suspended pending review: [Current system retained with the amendment that the Orange shirt be re-designated for the sole use of the previous Order of Merit winner for any part of the subsequent Tour year. If at any part of the subsequent Tour year, the previous Order or Merit winner also qualifies to wear the yellow shirt (as current Order of Merit leader), then this will be expected to be worn in preference to the Orange shirt. At no point during competition should the previous Order of Merit winner be expected or allowed to wear a blue WHVGS shirt and if they do not attend an event with the required orange shirt (required at all events apart from when they may qualify to wear the yellow shirt) then they will be expected to purchase a replacement orange shirt from the President]

Yellow and Orange shirts will not extend beyond the golfing arena (therefore shirts not awarded to winners of any competition linked to the WHVGS Annual Social such as Pool or Punching

2009-3: Match Reports

Almanac to be drafted by the Captain with agreed constitutional changes incorporated. A Draft is to be approved by Board and issued to the Society before the opening Tour event. The Captain is to maintain the Almanac and forward any constitutional amendments to Simon for publication on the website. The Almanac will continue to be the one definitive WHVGS record and the Constitutional rules will continue to be contained within it. There is therefore no separate document pertaining to the WHVGS Constitution, although it should be replicated on the website.

2009-6: Handicaps

At the start of each Tour year, the incoming Captain (or other Board member given the Tour handicapping responsibilities) has the option to propose an increase or decrease the starting handicaps of individual Members based on the prior year’s closing handicap. The Member concerned will then have to opportunity to present their case to the Board, who will either approve or reject the Proposal.

Throughout the year the Captain has the right to amend handicaps on general play.
In 2009, incumbent Captain (R. Ash, Prof) introduced an automatic system to increment handicaps for poor WHVGS competition performance as follows:
If the player’s Stapleforth score falls below 1 Standard Deviation from the Mean, that Player’s handicap is incremented as follows:
.1 (minor, playing handicap 18 or less)
.2 (minor, playing handicap 19+)
Increments are doubled for Majors.

2009-7 WHVGS Board
