MEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP SURVEY

It’s been great to see some good fields so far for the men’s championships. The revised format using Net Scores to determine the Masters’ Champion has provided a lot more interest and some close scores promise to provide an exciting finish over the final 2 rounds.

We apologise for the 1stround coinciding with the Labour Day long weekend, and this will change next year.

We wish to get members’ feedback about the schedule of next year’s championships. Three options have been proposed:

  1. Over 4 consecutive Sundays as per last 2 years.
  2. Over 2 consecutive weekends; Sat, Sun, Sat, Sun.
  3. Over 2 consecutive Sundays, then Sat, Sun on the 3rdconsecutive weekend.

Voting forms will be available at the bar from 19/5 till 3/6 and most voted-for option will be trialled next year. If you wish to provide feedback regarding the new divisions introduced this year, please do this on the bottom of the form.

FOOTY TIPPING

Nomination money is now well overdue. If you have not paid, please get this to Lester by end of May.

MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIPS

These are well underway. Due to the low number of nominations in the pairs, Craig has extended the first-round deadline to the end of May. It can be tricky to find a time that suits 4 players, particularly with championships underway, but please try and have these matches completed by then.
