I feel it is a great privilege to be elected President of the Union for 2014.
This year, I intend to continue the Union’s initiative to promote the
competitions for all golfers from our Member Clubs.
I look forward to meeting most of you in the coming year.
My best wishes to all of you.
President (Ben Rhydding Golf Club)
There have been a number of changes made to some competitions this year. A brief summary is:-
This will be increased to 15 Clubs but still played over 36 holes. In order to achieve this 7 Clubs from the 2014 qualifying round will be promoted to the Team Championship. In future 6 Clubs will be relegated and 6 Clubs promoted each year
This will be scrapped and replaced by a 4 Ball Better Ball Medal from handicap over 18 holes. No limit on the number of pairs a Club can have
These will become stand-alone competitions and players will no longer qualify from Foursomes Strokeplay or Amateur Strokeplay Championships. Rounds will be played through the season on neutral courses culminating in semi-final & final on our Finals Day in September. Again no limit on number of players from any Club. There will be an entry fee for each competition (£20 per pair for Foursomes & £10 for the Amateur). The closing date for both will be the 19th May when the draw will then be completed
ENTRY FORMS FOR COMPETITIONS CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM WEB SITE. CURRENTLY ON HOMEPAGE GO INTO 'UPCOMING COMPETITIONS' CLICK ON ANY COMPETITION SHOWN, THEN CLICK ON 'BACK TO UPCOMING COMPETITIONS' WHERE THE FULL LIST IS SHOWN.
