Match & Handicap

Great weather and golf!  The course keeps getting better thanks to Chris Hart, Alan Morton and our great and dedicated Greens Team.  Please be mindful of your speed of play and please enter ALL your scores in order to sustain a handicap.  If you cannot complete a full round of 9 you should enter equitable scores for the holes not played in order to complete your round. You need to have at least 10 scores minimum in the last two seasons in order to qualify for a handicap.

Ladies Golf

The groupings for President’s Cup, Captain’s Prize and Four Ball Match Play are now posted in the Starter Shack (and on the website). These are match play events and the instructions are posted on the bulletin board.  To prepare for these match play competitions, you might like to review Rule 3 in the new 2019 rule book or on-line. Also, it is recommended to put a unique identification mark on your golf ball so it is easily recognizable.

The first rounds of the Captain's Prize and Four Ball are to be completed by Monday, July 15th.

Ladies play one round of 9 holes on each day. Be sure to sign the sheet advising the starter before you tee off on the first hole. You may play at any time each day with anyone you choose who will attest your card. The lady with the lowest net score for the combined two rounds will be declared the winner. 

 

Please remember that scores for the IMP, as well as all Ladies Day Wednesday tournaments and the Club Championships will be posted by the captains, so please do not submit your own scores on these days.

 

Next Wednesday’s tournament is ‘Dunany Vice’ so feel free to comb out your mullet, get decked out in your best pastel T’s of pink, peach or fuschia à la Sonny Crockett and pack your wedges when we cruise the ‘Beach’. We’ll have Tubbs of fun and even supply you with ammunition!
