Club Champs!!
1st qualifying round next weekend on Sunday the 26th July.
2nd August second qualifying round
9th August last qualifying round
So everyone is clear,
Senior mens qualifying rounds are played off the blue tees and same will be for matches once draw is done.
Intermediate and Junior mens qualifying rounds are off the white tees aswell as your matches when draws are done after qualifying rounds.
All lady golfers qualify as there are only 6 players with names up, could be 10 max by the weekend. Ladies draw will be done after all the men’s qualifying rounds.
Club champs is played of gross no handicap involved at all throughout the whole competition. Regardless of Your handicap you can also choose what division you want to play in and that will be where you play the whole way through all qualifying rounds. If you play in the senior division the next 3 Sunday haggles will be played of the blues (please note this is only for the senior division). Everything else will be as per normal, if you choose to be a intermediate and you have a senior handicap you will be automatically put into the intermediate division for the next 3 Sunday haggles as they are qualifying rounds, this is to ensure we can still have the Sunday haggle as well as qualifying rounds together.
If you have any issues or any questions, please talk to the tournaments Committee Scott Irwin, Geoff Leahy, Goldie Edmonds, Adam Hinana, Gareth McGuigan.
Also the Strachen Cup draw will be up soon. 😊
