Starts Sunday 10th October, 2021.
Use the Scottish Golf app to enter and score each week.
This year handicaps will remain as your normal handicap – no winter handicap and no cuts!
Open to all club golf memberships including Associate & Winter members.
Once the course shortens instead of the usual 95% of your Course HC you’ll get 75% (Winter tees with normal greens) and 65% (Winter tees with Winter greens).
Winner will get 5 bonus points and the points are issued depending on how many play in four bands (up to 15, 16-25, 26-40, 41-60). Tied scores are shared points (no beloved countback!).
As normal half the entry fee each week is paid back to the winners and half kept for the overall league winners at the end of the winter. £2 entry each week (again payable through the app).
Special rules we use just in the Winter League:
Bunkers are out of play – if you go in one you can take a free drop out of it but not nearer the hole.
Preferred lies – if your ball is on cut grass (tee, fairway, fringe, green) you can mark, clean and place your ball within 6 inches of where it lay (not nearer the hole).
Plugged lie – if your ball is plugged (broken the surface of the earth NOT just a bad lie in the rough!!!) you can lift, clean and drop the ball from knee height anywhere (inc rough). If it’s on a cut grass area you can still take a preferred lie of course.
Lost ball – if you lose your ball instead of going back you can just drop another ball in the area it was lost and add a penalty shot. So if you lost your tee shot you’d drop a ball and be playing your third shot.
