Competition Changes 2019


Following feedback from members a number of changes have been made to some competitions in 2019.


Seniors Club Championships - a new category for super seniors (those members aged 65 years or older at the date of the competition) will be instituted in memory of Peter Turner. This competition will be run as part of the usual Seniors Championships and prizes will be awarded to the winners of the Seniors and Super Seniors winners.


John Fosters Masters - to reflect the lower volume of members attending competitions the number of qualifiers will be reduced to 15. The qualification is determined from results in Monthly Stableford & Medals from March to September during the year.


IGC Cup - the competition will be run as an individual competition. Each week Texas Scramble teams will be drawn in handicap categories with prizes for the top teams as usual.


The score achieved by the team each week will be given to each team member and aggregated over the course of the competition - with the worst score dropped (this may change if weeks are lost to weather).


The winner will be the person with the highest aggregate score with countback over the last 18 holes to determine any ties.


There are a number of changes to the rules of golf for 2019 - these changes are designed to speed up the pace of play. Please read the crib sheet which is on the noticeboard to familiarise yourself with these changes or read them here


Finally - in order to minimise wastage and costs - completion of the cards each week will remain the responsibility of the players themselves rather than them being pre-completed by the competition secretary.

*****IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL GOLFERS*****


PLEASE ENSURE YOU ALWAYS ENSURE THAT THE GUARDROOM IS NOTIFIED IMMEDIATELY WHEN THIS HAS HAPPENED TO AVOID INJURY TO THE DOGS & DO NOT PLAY ANY SHOT ACROSS THE COMPOUND AREA


Well done to Paul Cunningham, Flash and John Mullins who won round 3 of the IGC trophy with a great score of 42 points.  Gravy’s team once again returned an incorrectly added up card and once again finished runners up on countback - well done to Dave Chudley, Dave Stevens and Gravy!!!  An abacus will be supplied for you next week.


Flash leads the way in the overall competition but there are still two weeks to play and all to play for with Flash away this coming week!


Please arrive by 8.30am to register for a 9.00am tee off as usual. Anyone is welcome to join the competition and not just those that have taken part to date.


This year’s chosen Charity is Please Take Me There - a local charity who provide support for cancer patients in reaching specialist appointments by air. Details can be found on our Charity Page.
