There have been a number of changes made to some competitions over the last couple of years. A brief summary is:-
This will be increased to 15 Clubs but still played over 36 holes. In future 6 Clubs will be promoted from the qualifying round and 6 Clubs relegated from the 36 hole Team Championship each year.
This has been 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
Foursomes & Amateur Matchplay
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 mid 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. CLICK ON RELEVANT COMPETITION TO DOWNLOAD ENTRY FORM.
An amendment has been made to the Singles Matchplay in 2017. This final of this competition WILL BE held on our designated Finals Day. If you know you are away on that date do not enter. In addition if you subsequently find you are unavailable to play on that date you MUST CONCEDE the next round to your opponent.
The Foursomes Matchplay MUST be treated as a 'CLUB COMPETITION' and if a player becomes unavailable for either one particular round or subsequent rounds he MUST BE SUBSTITUTED'. No extensions will be given for holidays etc.
