Competitions News: July, 2019
The seasons competitions are now in full swing. If you have been allocated a tee time in a competition final please do not remove your name without informing Competition Secretary, Peter Webb – he will re-allocate the vacancy. If gaps are left on the booking sheet by players removing their names directly the system allows others (not finalists) to book the available slot and this causes confusion.
The date of the McBain Cup (Medal) Final has been changed from Saturday 6 th July to Saturday 20 th July. (A McBain qualifier competition is now being played on July 6 th )
