2017 Wednesday Winter League Scores & Winnings

 

Composite Course Sample Card

It'd be helpful if players could add their full handicap in brackets and 3/4 handicap in the box.

Markers should also add their name, gross score and stableford points down the left hand side to help with checking cards.

Ian McFadyen's popular Wednesday morning winter league starts again on Wednesday 25 October 2017 after the last Wednesday sweepstake on 18 October. This year it will follow the tried and tested format whereby players can turn up to play 16 holes, missing out the 10th and 11th holes, from 8am to 9am each Wednesday morning. Unless the course is closed, all submitted completed scores will count towards your total.

16 Hole (Big Course) Handicapping

Due to the fact that we play only 16 holes, players will play off 3/4 of their full handicap on the big course and will be subject to winter league handicap reductions if they achieve a score better than their handicap as follows:-

Stableford Points

32 or less

9 Hole (Wee Course) Handicapping

Players should not walk all the way down to the 1st tee for the second round of the 9 hole course. Once you play the 9th hole you simply walk back to the flat area half-way up the hill and tee off from there. Consequently no player receives a shot at this 10th hole.

Players play off full handicap minus 2 when playing twice around the 9 hole course and will be subject to winter league handicap reductions if they achieve a score better than their handicap as follows:-.

Please remember that if you choose to lift your ball and place it in the semi rough to play it, you must take it to the nearest side from where it lies.

Weekly sweepstake will only be paid out if 6 or more players play. Winners must complete the full 16 holes.

The cost to enter the league is £10 per head payable to Charlie Paul on or before 25 October which will used for a weekly prize fund which will pay out £5 for Best Stableford score, £3 second best stableford score, £2 for third best stableford score.    The weekly sweep winnings, will be paid out at a prizegiving lunch sometime in March and any remaining funds will be used toward the lunch.
