Introduction of PURSE system for members
Important Preliminary Notice
The Men’s Club Committee will shortly introduce the “PURSE” system for members by creating a cashless booking system. This will enable members to book tee times using the normal booking procedures where the competition fee will be deducted from their account.
Each member will be required to open a PURSE account using a debit or credit card for €30, €50 or €80 by following the instructions which will appear on the BRS system. Once your account has been set up you simply book in the usual way. Your account will be debited (at a time to be decided by the committee before each competition i.e. 48 hours prior to competition time) by the amount of the fee relevant to the particular weekend. If a member withdraws from the competition after this time he will forfeit the competition fee which is non-refundable, except in very exceptional circumstances. Members can “top up” when necessary by following the instructions on the BRS system when fully operational.
This new system will streamline our tee time bookings and will penalise habitual “no shows” thus freeing up times on the time sheet. It will also alleviate the need to have cash in the shop or committee room and the security risks attached to this. The two’s competition will continue to be paid by cash.
Over the next few weeks, more details will be issued to members and posted on the notice boards. It is hoped that the new system will be operational from March 1st
