Members, the format for this year’s Foursomes Championships will be as follows.
There will be one qualifying round of Foursomes stroke play on Saturday 8th May 2021, which will be the only competition on that day. Cost will be $15 per player and the timesheet will be available on Friday 30th April at the club from 5.30pm and online from 6.30pm. The event will be played in groups of six.
Play in the event of the day on Saturday 8th May is available for all members who are entitled to play in a Saturday competition. Prizes for Scratch and Net winners in each grade will be presented after golf on that day.
Only Male 7 day playing members will be eligible to qualify for the match play component of the Foursomes Championship.
The stroke-play round on 8th May 2021, which will be the qualifying round for the match play section of the Championship, will be played in four grades, from the blue bubble markers of the day.
A grade – up to 7 hcp (Up to GA 6.8)
A reserve – 8 to 12 hcp (GA 6.9 to 11.3)
B grade – 13 to 18 hcp (GA 11.4 to 16.7)
C grade – 19 and over (GA 16.8 and over)
The grade in which a pair plays is determined by the handicap of the lowest marker of each pair on Saturday 8th May.
Eight pairs from each grade will qualify for the match play section of the Foursomes Championship.
The dates for the match play games are:
Quarter Finals Saturday 15th May
Semi Finals Saturday 22nd May
Finals Saturday 29th May with trophy presentation to follow.
These matches will be played from 11am on those days from the Championship Plates.
Players who qualify for the match play will be required to pay $15 each which will cover them for all match play rounds.
Please note the dates of the match play and if you are unable to make ANY of those dates, please alert the club and make it known that you will be unavailable for the match play section. This will enable a pair who may have missed qualifying to participate in the match play in your absence. We do not want to see pairs withdrawing from the match play once the draw is done.
If you would like to participate in the foursomes but do not have a partner, please enter your name with GA handicap and contact number on the sheet provided in the members locker room and you should be able to find a partner.
