The St Georges Day competition to be held on 23 Apr 2016 is sponsored by Blevins Franks who will provide a number of excellent prizes.
This competition is a pairs betterball with stableford scoring.
For this competition:
Men will play from tees as follows: 1st hole red tee, 2nd hole white tee, 3rd hole red tee and continuing in this sequence throughout the round. Men will play from their yellow tee handicaps.
Ladies will play from tees as follows: 1st hole red tees, 2nd hole blue tees, 3rd hole red tees and continuing in this sequence throughout the round. Ladies will play from their red tee handicaps with an addition of half the difference between their red and blue handicaps. This will almost certainly give ladies their red handicaps plus two strokes.
When this competition was first planned it was to be red tee followed by white tee for all players. This would always have been somewhat unfair to the ladies, but now that the competition has attracted a major sponsor, this disparity has been rectified.
Nearest the Pin: Separate “Nearest the Pin” will be on hole 6 for both men and for ladies.
Longest Drive: Separate “Longest Drive” will be on hole 11 for both men and for ladies. Drives must be on the fairway to count.
Blevins Franks will provide a drink between 9th/10th holes and will be giving a free drink to players in the bar after the round.
In appreciation of this sponsorship, members are asked to stay for the presentations.
