This is a team competition held annually competing against teams from Cedar Brae, Meadowbrook and Oshawa Golf Clubs. Each team is comprised of 14 players: one coordinator, one Professional, and twelve players ranked by handicap. The competition is match play, with each person in your foursome receiving strokes from the low handicap player in the group. You compete for three matches simultaneously, one point for a front-9 win, one for a back-9 win and one for an overall win.
Participation is open to any male member in good standing, whether A, B or C playing category. Each spring a qualifying process is run. For a fee of $20 (to be chatted), any male member can have three attempts to post scores. After signing up, and before playing, the Pro Shop must be notified that you are qualifying that day. Additional attempts to qualify may be purchased for an additional fee of $20.
The team will be comprised of the 12 best qualifying scores, with other qualifiers being retained on a ‘spare’ list. The ideal scenario would be to have 18-24 qualifiers, as that would allow everyone to be guaranteed two matches.
The dates for 2015 are:
· Monday, June 29 – Oshawa
· Monday, July 20 – Whitevale
· Wednesday, August 5 – Meadowbrook
· Tuesday, August 25 – Cedar Brae
The matches begin at approximately noon with a double tee start, and are followed by a light dinner. The funds from qualifying help cover the costs of meals and team shirts. There may be some charges laid off on a per rata basis at year end to compensate for all costs incurred. Traditionally, this has been less than $100 if a player participated in all four matches.
Please see the poster announcing the qualifying and sign up. Members who have played in past seasons all enjoy the opportunity. We are looking for more participation, it is a great chance to play three other fine courses and meet some interesting players from other clubs.
