COMPETITION GUIDELINES

 

OBTAINING A HANDICAP

 

Cards to obtain a handicap are to be marked by a player who has a CONGU handicap. You will need to submit sufficient cards to provide scores for 54 holes of golf, which can be 9 hole or 18 hole scores. REMEMBERING to - Date and Sign (both the Marker and the Player) and enter the correct score against each hole (any alterations should be initialled). It is the Marker's responsibility to record the correct score against each hole, she is signing at the end to say she has done this. However, the ultimate responsibility is with the "Player" when she signs and returns her own card in to the box in the spike bar next to the terminal.

 

COMPETITIONS

 

Games are generally played in "three's".  However, if players have dropped out making for instance two two balls following each other then it is sometimes better to make a four-ball to assist the continuity of play and reduce the need of being called through.

 

DRAWN COMPETITIONS

 

Before the drawn competition list is posted, all entrants must have paid the fee for the competition upon entry.  Failure to do so, will mean they forfeit their place in the competition.

Once the Competition has been drawn if you are unable to play, please notify either the Ladies Competition Secretary (Chris Polden) or the Ladies Handicap Secretary (Sarah Hughes).

If a player fails to turn up for her game, then she will receive a 2 match ban to be applied to the next 2 competitions (this ban will apply to both drawn and non-drawn competitions and may apply to competitions in which the player has already entered). The ban will not be applied to doubles competitions where a partner player could be deemed to be indirectly penalised.  A refund of the entry fee will be given if the player has already paid for a competition from which they are subsequently banned and therefore withdrawn.

 

RESERVES for DRAWN COMPETITIONS  - After the draw has been made if you wish to be a reserve please contact the Handicap Secretary (Chris Polden). Reserves requested for drawn competitions can only be entered to replace someone who has paid and was entered in the draw. The only exceptions to this rule are:

 

The Snow White Cup where reserves join in at the end of the field unless they are needed as replacements for competitors who have withdrawn and Foursomes/Greensomes competitions (if there is a pair on their own).

 

MEDAL and other COMPETITIONS 

 

These are not drawn competitions. The difference is that you may enter the time of play convenient to yourself. If you are

unable to play on the day, you must advise your playing partners of this.

 

Spring / Autumn Meetings Entrance fee and prize fee are charged in advance to cover the relevant costs for the day.  Failure to notify the Lady Captain of being unable to play or attend the evening may incur the charge for any meals ordered.

 

REMEMBER - after all qualifying competitions to enter your scores on to the terminal and put your card in the box first checking that it has your correct handicap, correct date, two signatures (marker and player) and that the scores are written against each correct hole, with any alterations initialled by your marker. If after entering the Competition you do not wish your card to be considered you must mark your card NO RETURN (N/R). You must still however put your card in the box as this will be used to calculate the Competition Standard Scratch for the day.

CONTINUITY OF PLAY

 

Generally 10 minutes are allowed between tee-off times for all competitions.

 

When play has commenced, you must keep up with the group in front. If a game fails to keep its place on the course and loses more than one clear hole on the players in front, the players behind must be called through.

 

Players searching for a ball should signal the players behind them to pass as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not easily be found. They should not search for 3 minutes before doing so. Some players do play more slowly than others, but please remember the frustration of those some way down the field.  A minute or two every few holes soon adds up and soon creates the need to call games through.

 

LATENESS ON THE TEE

 

If a player arrives at her starting point, ready to play within five minutes after her starting time, the penalty for failure to start on time is loss of the first hole in match play or two strokes at the first hole in stroke play. Otherwise, the penalty for breach of this rule is disqualification. See rule 6.3 in the R&A handbook. Bogey & Par Competition - if the player is in breach of rule 6.3 (Time Starting) but arrives at his starting point, ready to play within five minutes after her starting time, or is in breach of Rule 6.7 (Undue Delay, Slow Play), the Committee will deduct one hole from the aggregate of holes. For a repeated offence under rule 6.7 see rule 32-2a in the R&A handbook. Stableford Competitions - if the competitor is in breach of rule 6.3 (Starting Time) but arrives at her starting point, ready to play within five minutes after her starting time, or is in breach of rule 6.7 (Undue Delay, Slow Play), the Committee will deduct two points from the total points scored for the round. For repeated offence under rule 6.7 see rule 32.2a in the R&A hand book. This rule should be applied consistently in fairness to all players at all times. Players are asked to act honourably in this respect.

 

ETIQUETTE AND DISCRETION

 

In Competitions Lady Captain has priority to go out at the front of the field if she wishes except where handicap restriction etc apply i.e. Diane Wilkins, Betty Buxton, Honey Hett and Grannies Salver. Reminder Knockout Competitions also have priority on the course and should be let through.

 

QUALIFICATION FOR PRIZES

 

In order that a player qualifies for a prize in the Spring and/or Autumn Meeting, the player must have competed in three 18 hole qualifying competitions during the preceding year. This does not apply to new members who have joined that year.

 

SUPPLEMENTARY SCORES

 

Supplementary Scores allow a member the opportunity to submit scores for handicap purposes at any time of their choosing. These can be on either stroke play or stableford format over 18 holes or stableford format only over 9 holes.

 

Eligibility -

 

Players in Handicap Categories 2,3,4,5 and 6 may return any number of Supplementary Scores annually and there is no limit on the number returned in any week

 

Category 1 players may only return Supplementary Scores during the period 1 September to 31 December and only to ensure that they have sufficient qualifying scores to maintain a competition handicap. They can only return scores over 18 holes.

 

A sheet is provided at the front of the competition book in the Ladies Changing Room and a player must signify her intention to submit a supplementary score by signing and dating this prior to commencing play.

 

The completed scorecard should be placed in the normal card box after play.

 

COMPETITION AND NON COMPETITION HANDICAPS

 

COMPETITION

To maintain a Competition Handicap a player must have submitted at least 3 qualifying cards in the previous year (January to January). These can include supplementary scores and 9 hole qualifying competitions.

 

NON COMPETITION

9 Hole Competitions, Snow White Cup and October Stableford.

 

NINE HOLE QUALIFYING COMPETITIONS

 

The format for nine hole qualifying competitions will always be stableford over 9 holes.  At the completion of the competition the system will calculate points based on 18 holes to obtain a qualifying score.

 

Fixed buffer zones for each category are as follows:

 

Category 1:          36 pts

Category 2 & 3:    35-36 pts

Category 4,5 & 6: 34-36 pts

 

These will be played following on from certain 18 hole medal competitions but will be entered separately on the terminal.

 

RULES FOR LADIES KNOCKOUT COMPETITIONS

 

The onus is on both sides to make playing arrangements. These arrangements should be made in the cordial spirit of the game.  Any unfairness or unpleasantness should be reported immediately to the committee.

 

Each side must offer at least three dates for play. These dates must include both weekday and weekend dates. Please note five day members can enter but must pay a green fee if their match is arranged at the weekend.

 

If your opposition do not offer both weekend and weekday dates, you must contact the competition secretary or handicap secretary who will mediate on the issue. Please note this may result in a disqualification.

 

These dates are to be arranged as soon as possible after the draws for the knockouts have been posted on the notice board.

Holiday dates must be declared from the start and if you know you are going to be unable to play for more than two weeks during one of the rounds, then it may be advisable not to enter the competition.

 

EXTENSIONS TO PLAYING DATES WILL ONLY BE GIVEN FOR THE FINAL ROUND.

THE RULE STATING THAT ONE SIDE CAN BE ON THE TEE AT 1PM ON THE FINAL DAY TO CLAIM THE MATCH NO LONGER APPLIES.

 

Walkovers can only be given after referral to the competition secretary and subject to her approval.

 

If after the draw has been done, a lady is unable to play for reason of absence, injury or illness, then her place can be taken by another player provided that no games have yet been played by that pair.

 

Finals must have a referee.

 

The decisions on any disputes made by the competition secretary and/or handicap secretary or committee will be final.

Sign and date the eclectic book before playing. The book may not be signed after a round or half way through. Do not remove this book from the changing room.

 

In winter, the eclectic can be done at any time and not just in competitions.

 

A card may only be completed when playing with a lady member with a current handicap. Eclectic cards may not be completed when playing with men.

 

When the game is finished the eclectic book and an eclectic score sheet must be completed. For cards subsequent to the first, only scores where the score is improved need to be entered. If you sign the book but do not improve any scores, please record a "no return" on the sheet.

 

When entering your birdie on a leaf, please add your name, the marker's name and the date.

 

There will be winners over the 27 holes for the three handicap groups.
