The competition will be 4 ball better ball match play using current, on the day, handicap. Each player has 90% of their current handicap & receives the full difference from the lowest handicap player in the match.
All matches to be played from the white tees.
There will be three divisions of approximate equal size.
The divisions will be made up by a random draw.
All matches will start from 1st tee.
3 points will be awarded for a win, 1 point for a halved match & 0 points for a loss
Matches are to be played as follows:
All League matches are to be played between 1st October, 2021 & 28th February, 2022
Knockout games (Quarter finals, Semi finals & Final) are to be completed in March, 2022.
In the event a pair are unable to play on an agreed date they must advise their opponents and the Competition Secretary. It will be necessary for the match to be played on another date to be agreed by all the players and the Competition Secretary. The objective is that all matches are played rather than forfeited.
For any League games not completed by 28th February, 2022 – both teams will receive zero points.
In the event of a tie on points the first means of deciding who goes through to the Quarter Finals will be by reference to the result of the match already played between the pairs involved. If possible, this will also be used in the case of a three way tie on points. If reference to matches already played cannot determine who goes through, a play-off will take place to decide . If two pairs are equal on points they will play a further game against each other to decide who goes through and must therefore play the match to a conclusion. If three or more pairs are equal on points, all pairs will play a better ball medal round with the best nett scores going through.
The quarter finals will consist of the top 2 in each division & the 2 best third placed teams. The draw will aim to keep teams from the same division apart, if possible.
Any problems arising will be adjudicated by the Competitions Secretary. Any appeal against any of the Competition Secretary’s decisions must be put to the Seniors Committee.
