The rules for the2018 Men’s Club champs have been revised based primarily on the feedback from the Club Survey earlier in 2018. The details of the survey and the summary used by the golf committee to consider changes are appended to this document which provides the rationale for any rules changes.
Grades are unchanged with Juniors having a course handicap off the blue tees 16 and above, Intermediates having a course handicap off the blue tees between 8 and 15, and Seniors being an open grade.
Qualifying for all grades consists of one qualifying round of 18 holes Stroke Play in the morning of Saturday 1 September. The tee time draw for qualifying will be available from Thursday 29thof August. The top 16 in each grade on gross score qualify for match play “off the stick”.
The competition is a play by date except for the final. All matches will be scheduled on the play by date:
Round 1: Saturday 15 September
Quarter Final: Saturday 29 September
Semi Final: Saturday 13 October
Final: Sunday 4 November
Reserve Final Day: 11 November
Matches may be played earlier, however must be organised through the Club Captain. In the event of bad weather on one of the play by dates, the Committee could chose to change the dates of subsequent rounds to accommodate any delay.
