Just a reminder that our Gents’ “Yellow Ball” / Team Stableford Competition on Saturday the 24th is this weekend. There are still places available for teams and individuals, to add to a team, if you want to play. Get in touch with the Professional shop to confirm your time.

The competition will be a Four Man Team, played off the Yellow tees with full handicap allowance

Please ensure your team check in at the Pro Shop 10 minutes BEFORE your tee time to ensure there are no delays.

Please note that the playing order has to be agreed before teeing off so pick carefully (who doesn’t like the 10th or 11th.)

Select your playing order and mark your name and current handicap on the card beside either Player A, B, C or D as agreed by your team.

The format for the Yellowball will be as follows:

Player A will play the “Yellow Ball” at holes 1, 5, 9, 13 and 17

Player B will play the “Yellow Ball” at holes 2, 6, 10, 14 and 18

Player C will play the “Yellow Ball” at holes 3, 7, 11 and 15

Player D will play the “Yellow Ball” at holes 4, 8, 12 and 16

Hole 6 is replaced by the first extra hole behind the 10th tee. i.e. the score at this hole is marked as the 6th on the scorecard.

Hole 13 is replaced by the 2nd extra hole behind the 10th tee. i.e. the score at this hole is marked as the 13th on the scorecard.

If your team either loses or hits the “Yellow ball” out of bounds then you are out of that part of the competition. It should be remembered that it could be that all teams lose their “Yellow ball” and therefore the winning team would be the team that completed the most holes.

There is also a team competition and this will be the best combined 2 stableford scores at each hole out of the four players over the 18 holes.

There is also a prize for the best individual scores. So even if you think your team have let you down, keep playing, you may be lucky enough to win individually.

Cost of entry is £12 per team.
