The Golf Committee shall decide the number of divisions which shall comprise the league, and each Club shall be represented by 3 players. Players shall be under the age of 18 on the 1st January to be eligible to play in the ensuing season, and shall represent only one Club in any one season.

3. In the event of a tie on points at the end of the season, final placing in the League shall be decided by the number of individual games won by a Club. Should there still be a tie, then placing shall be decided by the number of points won in the two matches played between the clubs involved in the tie. If there is still a tie then the result shall be decided by the total of the highest winning margins in the individual games between those clubs. Should there still be a tie the result shall then be decided by the total of the highest winning margins in the individual games during the season.

Matches MUST be played during the appropriate weekend at a time and date agreed by the club’s junior organiser in accordance with the published fixture list, but in any event must be completed by 11.00pm on the Monday evening following the weekend of the fixture. If it is not possible for the match to be played on the date shown on the fixture list, then a written request for a postponement MUST be sent to the Junior Committee (currently Mick Doull & David Peat) at least 48 hours prior to the date of the fixture for a change of date. An indication must be given as to when the match shall take place. If the re-arranged fixture is not played within the specified time scale neither team shall receive any points. In a rearranged match, the Club asking for the re-arranged fixture will NOT be afforded any ‘walkovers’ if the opposition team is unable to field a full team.

6. In the event of any club being unable to play a match in the allotted timescale, the match and points will be awarded to their opponents.

7. All matches shall be played from a difference of full handicap. Girls shall play from a full handicap plus the difference in Standard Scratch between the Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ cards, over 18 holes in accordance with the R&A Rules of Golf for Matchplay. In matches between a Boy and a Girl, stroke indices from the red tees apply. Scoring shall be 2 points for a win and 1 point for a half.

8. In the event of bad weather and/or the condition of the course, a match shall be postponed by a decision of the junior organisers, provided that play has not commenced in any individual game.
