Weekend Sweep (Sat/Sun) – Member €5

Our weekend sweep will be run as a ‘Best of Series’ (one set of prize winners) and will be divided into 3 divisions.

Cat 1: <=9

Cat 2: 10-16

Cat 3: 17+

Re-entry will be allowed (re-entry €5) with your best score to count.

Scorecards must include the date you play and be marked as ‘Weekend Sweep’.

Prizes will be given on an overall basis where the number of entries does not justify a prize in each division.

Weekday Sweep (Tue)- Member €5

Our weekday sweep will be an open field event without categories.

Scorecards must include the date you play and be marked as ‘Weekday Sweep’.

Over the Christmas/New Year holiday this sweep will run for the entire week.

Team Sweep – Member €5

We will occasionally include a Team Sweep to give some variety.

Scorecards must include the date you play and be marked as ‘Team Sweep’.

Note that from Jan 1st any ‘Winter Reduction’ will apply on your handicap for these events. Please adjust your handicap before you play. If unsure of how this works you should record the score for all players in the group, games will make sure the adjustment is applied when closing the competition.

Winter Reductions

As in other years there will be a local reduction applied to any subsequent score of our singles prize winners. (e.g. 1st: -2, 2nd: -1; dependent on prize allocated).

Reductions will also be applied if you feature in other competitions.

Additional reductions will apply to multiple sweep winners (singles).

In team events from Jan 1st these Winter Reductions are applied against your starting handicap rather than a reduction against your final score as in a singles event. If unsure of how this works you should record the score of all players in the group and games will calculate the correct points score.

** In singles competition the reduction does not apply in the situation where a countback is required.

 

We hope you’ll keep supporting the Club, our Catering & Professional over the winter months. Most important of all, enjoy your golf.

The Games Committee.
