Are you Good Enough ?? to get your name here ??
This year each individual’s best 18 scores in the competition will count towards the season’s final total. This enables SIX results to be discarded to allow for holidays, illness same as last year 2012 season
Paul Fineman the CAPT would like to nominate Ian Bradshaw as the longest drive GURU !
This will run throughout the 24 weeks of the regular season. Players will score points on a Hole which is nominated (a ball draw from 18) so a ball picked out as 8 will be index 8 hole on the day. This can be any Index hole on each course on a Stableford basis. Totalled each week and 18 scores will be recorded the lowest scores discarded layed more than 18 times. The highest points total at the end of the season will be declared the winner, in the event of a tie it will be decided on a countback system (ie. most number of 4 pointers, 3 pointers etc.) Each player will receive up to a maximum of 2 shots depending on his handicap.

WINS THE JOKER 2014
Each member will be allowed to “Play their Joker” on TWO occasions throughout the Regular Season, one in the first half of the season and one in the second half. All points scored on that day will count as Double, the winner will be the highest combined score and will receive their prize at the annual presentation night. Players must ,however, make their intention of playing their Joker known to the Captain BEFORE any ball is struck on their nominated day. STABLEFORD Points are calculated on each hole
If a member is lucky enough to score a Birdie (Gross score not Nett) on any round of the regular season fixtures. They will be entered that week into the Lotto. A ball (numbered 1 – 18) will be picked at random and if the ball number matches the same number as the hole where the birdie occurred the member wins the Total of the Lotto pot. If not the £5 weekly prize will rollover to the following week. On the final week of the season the Lotto Pot MUST be won!!!
We will also introduce a 2’s competition where any MEMBER scoring a Gross score of 2 on any hole on any of the holes from the 24 designated weeks will be given a FREE entry draw ticket to have a chance of winning the £50 Winner Takes All prize. Not sure about this one i feel it needs altering but unsure on format
