Ladies’ Alternate Day and Weekend competitions for 2020
RULES FOR LADIES’ WEEKEND COMPETITIONS
It was agreed at the 2019 Ladies’ AGM, and by the Golf Committee, that Full Lady Members can choose to play in a stand-alone weekend competition OR link the weekend competition to the Wednesday midweek competition (including Board competitions). This is called Alternate Day/linked. There will only be one ladies’ competition of the day but players can elect whether to link for the midweek competition prize or the standalone one. All weekend competitions are qualifying, ie handicaps will be adjusted, unless there is not a minimum number required then a player can choose to play a social round and not submit her card or mark the card as Supplementary for handicap purposes only.
Ladies must be full members to play in these weekend qualifying competitions (not restricted members or any other non-qualifying membership category, eg Twighlight or 9 hole).
Ladies can sign up for any tee time which go live in the club on BRS on the at 6.00 pm Thursday the week before in the clubhouse and 9.00 pm online. The board have asked that our newer, higher handicap ladies, play in the 3 protected ladies’ slots starting at 1.30 pm, which our Handicap Secretary will secure each for each fixture date.
The fixtures have been compiled with reference to the men’s weekend competition but there may be slight differences to be considered if marking a man’s card, eg ladies might be playing a single stroke and the men may be playing a single Stableford.
All cards to be entered on the computer as one competition, but prizes allocated manually. Cards in the box as normal.
If enough ladies (minimum of 5 ladies make a competition) take part, then a weekend competition can be played as a stand-alone competition; this is instead of the alternate day/linked competition but all ladies must play the same format which is dictated by the midweek competition format.
An entrance fee of £2 will be collected and the prize will be the total pot for the winner.
Alternate Day Competitions:
Ladies playing an Alternate Day because they cannot play on the Wednesday midweek competition, must sign the Alternate Day notebook in the ladies’ locker room at least 48 hours before the weekend competition (and this can’t be changed) and must also indicate on their card that they will be linking this competition. These ladies will NOT be part of the standalone competition, but for handicap and scoring purposes the computer will need all cards to be entered and it will be the prizes that will be sorted manually.
An entrance fee of £2 will be collected and the player’s card will need to be identified for putting forward, by the Handicap Secretary, for the prize linking to the following midweek competition, this includes board competitions.
All scores will be entered onto the computer by weekend players but the winners will be identified manually for prizes for the standalone competition of the day and the Alternate Day cards will be held by the Handicap Secretary for manual inclusion into the Wednesday competition.
