Monday will be the Queen’s Birthday medley stableford. The ladies’ veterans will also play their 9-hole comp on Tuesday.
Tuesdays medley stableford comp is open to anyone. However, while it will still use a time sheet it will have a two-tee hit off. This will allow a more social finish to the competition for the veterans. Players must still maintain social distancing.
The veteran’s Monthly Mug and Championships will resume from Tuesday with scores taken from the medley stableford.
Saturdays Monthly Mug for the men is a chance for the men to improve their positions in both the Hoyt Family Trophy and the Order of Merit.
