SENIOR COMPETITIONS

SENIOR AWAY DAY AT MICKLEOVER GOLF CLUB

Thirty-three Seniors made their way to Mickleover GC to contest the 2022 Away Day in a competition comprising of eleven teams of three. Eight points separated the top five prize winning teams with places five to seven being decided on countback. Seniors’ Captain Bill Myatt made the presentations to the prize winners. A big thank you goes to Barry Hubberts for devising the competition and preparing the match cards and Paul Burch for negotiating such a good deal with Mickleover GC.

Apart from a little rain, the weather was kind to us, and the course was perfect. Better still, the staff at Mickleover were very accommodating and did a fine job of looking after us. A really nice touch was to open the halfway house for us to enjoy biscuits with a cup of tea or coffee all for the price of a donation. A fabulous day with fabulous company.

TOM SIMPSON TROPHY -Singles Knockout Rules

SENIOR SINGLES KNOCKOUT 2022 TOM SIMPSON TROPHY
RULES OF COMPETITION

The competition is a knockout over 18 holes off the blue tees. Handicap allowance will be 90% of difference and normal golf rules apply. Following the decision of the 2021 Seniors’ Annual Meeting this change regarding handicap will be reviewed before the next Seniors’ Annual Meeting at which the decision to continue with it or revert to previous practice will be taken.

This is an important competition which should be given its full respect , to be fair to everyone who has entered and avoid the three main complaints when organising your matches. We have provided ready solutions to these three common complaints which are: -

1. People leaving it too late to play the match and then requesting the Round Date to be extended.
2. Contacting your opponent (please make a telephone number or email address available).
3. Not being able to agree a date.

Rule 1
All completion dates are mandatory and there will be no exceptions except if the course has been closed for an unreasonable amount of time between start and end dates. If you have left your match until the last day and the course is closed on that day but has been open for a reasonable period leading up to that date no extension will be granted and you must by whatever means decide who goes through.

Rule 2
Matches should be arranged with minimum of delay and it is up to ALL players to try and make first contact. This will give players equal responsibility to make contact, telephone numbers have been provided where possible but should these be incorrect please amend accordingly asap.

Rule 3
There is ample time between and within rounds to arrange a fixture but if for any reason both parties cannot sort out a date then you should agree between yourselves which name goes forward. You can decide this by whatever means you are happy with even if it means tossing a coin. I would be happy to do this for you remotely if necessary or you may decide on a “penalty shoot out” on the putting green.
If you seek advice on reaching a decision as to the person who should go through then the person who has made most effort to arrange the match will be favoured.

Rule 4 PLAYERS RESPONSIBILITY
It is the responsibility of the winning player to inform Barry Hubberts of the result at barryhubberts@yahoo.co.uk or telephone 07368 181254 before the next round is due to take place. Failure to notify a result in the due time will cause undue delay to your next opponent and may lead to your disqualification.

Rule 5 MATCH LEVEL AFTER 18 HOLES
The change brought about by the BRS booking system makes it more difficult, if not impossible, to continue a match beyond 18 holes to a sudden death playoff and the following is an attempt to address this problem.
• Players completing 18 holes where the match remains level will have three choices, either to play on (if possible), toss a coin to determine a winner or agree to meet at a later date for a sudden death playoff. It is the players’ responsibility to find a solution.
• An arranged sudden death playoff must occur within stated period for the round to which it relates.
• If a sudden death playoff cannot take place within the time limit for the round to which it relates no extension will be allowed and a toss of a coin MUST take place.


Rule 6 CONDITIONS OF ENTRY TO COMPETION
Players enter the competition on the understanding that they will fully abide by the above rules.

Whilst these Rules/arrangements might seem harsh they are designed to make it fair for everyone especially those players who do make the extra effort to play their games in good time.
