Matchplay 2017

The first Stage of Competition will be 4 groups of 4 pairs. Each pair will play the other pairs in the group once (3 games). 2 match points are awarded for a win, and 1 for a draw. There will also be 1 point awarded for each hole won. These hole points will be used to differentiate between pairs that are on the same match points at the end of the group stages. This means that although you may have lost the match, say 3 down and 2 holes to go, you can still add hole points by winning the last 2 holes, so play to the end.

The top 2 teams from each group will go through to the knockout stages. Read the rules carefully

Rules

Qualification: All players must have a current Wanderers handicap which must be kept valid throughout the competition.
Each game will be 4 ball better ball. Handicap to be calculated as 90% of the difference between the lowest handicap player and the others. For example, if the lowest is 5 and others are 10,15,24. Then the 5 handicapper receives no shots , 10 receives (10-5)*.9=4.5 =5, 15 receives (15-5)*.9=9, 24 receives (24-5)*.9=17.1=17. Lowest net score wins the hole.

Arranging the Match and timescales.
It is allowed to replace a pair member with another name before the 1st game is played. After that no substitutions are allowed.

In the group stages if a pair does not play all its games, then all of their results will be deducted i.e. only games between other 3 pairs will count.

Group Matches to be completed before 3rd July 2017
Quarter-finals before 4th September 2017
Semi-finals before 9th October 2017
Final before Club Champs on Dec 2nd 2017

According to the Rules of Golf, you cannot mix formats in one competition. This means that if the match is arranged at another tournament, the players cards cannot be entered into that competition or the Match is null and void and will have to be replayed.

In the event that a mutual venue cannot be agreed then Vintage will be the venue of the match. Please arrange games well before the end date and keep us informed of the result so we can update the status.

Prime contact is Mark Adderley but copy Wanderers.

Enjoy the competition and may the best pair win.
