Club Championships: Matchplay

Entries close at 5pm Saturday, one week before the match play qualifying competition. To enter write your name on the entry sheet on the club notice board. After entries close the draw is posted on the Internet by 5pm Wednesday before play.  Also record entry on the kiosk.


Senior (course handicap up to 7, index 7.0) and Intermediate (hcp 8 – 12, indices 7.1 – 11.6) qualifying is over the final 36 holes from the Strokeplay championship.  Junior (hcp 13-18, indices 11.7 – 17.2) is gross score over 36 holes, and ‘C' Grade (hcp 19+) is over 36 holes.  Return all competition cards to the pro-shop for scoring.  Some grades for the match play could be different from the stroke play because they will be based on indices prior to first tee of match play qualification.   NB  These may need clarification from the WHS from 2020

The matches are all off the stick..  Holes not completed should be scored with the “most likely score”; holes not played are scored as “two pointers” for handicap purposes. Matchplay contestants are not eligible for the scramble.  All scorecards must be returned to the pro shop.
