Due to booking issues it has been necessary to change the dates of these two competitions. The 1st invitation day is now Sunday 13th May (booking is now open for this competition) and the E.G.U. Qualifier is moved to Saturday 12th May.
The spring is rapidly approaching, and the season will soon start.
After a review of the current course status rules we’ve made some alterations it clarify the course availability. There are now 6 different status rules from fully open (Status 1) to closed (Status 6).
Please familiarise yourself with the revised rules.
