A five competition event for members to celerbrate
the 125th year Anniversary of our Club
This will replace the Peter Hurst for this year. It is a 5 tournament event with some twists to the usual calendered events. There will be individual prizes for each event, and each place will be worth points which will go towards the overall 1 to 5 winner who will be the inaugural winner of The 125 club trophy (the same bespoke trophy that the winners of The 125 Open will keep)
The dates and events are as follows - I can only find 3 dates scheduled in the calendar, and so would need 2 more:
1. Sunday April 2nd - One for the ladies - A medal competition played from the ladies tees using the ladies stroke index on the scorecard.
2. Sunday 16th April - String 'em up - A flag competition. Instead of handicap strokes, each player is allocated one foot of string for every shot of his/her handicap. Each player can move the ball by measuring the distance moved and cutting that amount from the string. You can use the string to remove your ball from hazards, get it out of a difficult lie or to hole out. Players will gain one foot of string for each net birdie scored. See how far around the course you can get!
3. Sunday 2nd July - Mellow yellow - In groups of three players, each player plays their own ball and one plays the yellow ball in rotation (player 1 will play yellow ball on holes 1,4,7,10,13,16). The yellow ball score plus the best of the other three is counted for each hole.
4. Date TBC - Fat chance - Stableford - Points are awarded for your score on each hole on either a net score basis. Players score 1 point for a bogey, 2 for a par, 3 for a birdie, 4 for an eagle and 5 if you bag an albatross (fat chance!). Anything worse than a bogey, pick up and stop wasting everyone else's time!
5. Date TBC - Pinehurst No.2 - This I splayed in teams of 2. Handicaps are added up and then halved to give a handicap for the competition. Both teammates tee off, then the best ball is chosen and alternate shots are taken from there until the ball is holed.
