Summer Matchplay Competitions

2017 SUMMER MATCHPLAY COMPETITIONS – CONDITIONS OF PLAY

All ties to be played off the Gents’ White Tees and Ladies Red Tees as appropriate. Full handicap difference for singles ties, half the difference in combined handicaps for the Gents’ and Mixed Foursome ties.

It is the joint responsibility of both players/teams to ensure that ties are arranged and completed by the due dates for all rounds of these competitions. If any ties are not completed by the due date, the player/team to go through will be determined by the Match Committee after discussion with both players/teams. Any such decisions will be final.

Competitors may if necessary book weekend ties through the Starters well in advance of the normal 5-day rule. Inevitably, holiday, illness and/or family commitments can make it difficult to arrange ties, but there’s a month between each round, so I strongly suggest that all players/tams make early contact with their opponents rather than leave it to the last few days.

The Match Secretary has asked me to take the lead in looking after these competitions, so any queries to me rather than him, please.
