RULES FOR THE FOUR COMPETITIONS
The rules applicable will be those approved by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. And may be altered by the Organizer and by the local official Club rules.
Measuring Devices are allowed. The courses will be played from the yellow tee markers (Men) and from the red tee markers (Ladies). All competitions are played in Stableford.
“Ready to play” rule is strongly advisable. All scores marked on the card must be GROSS (Brut), NOT Net (pas Net).
Monday: 4 ball Scramble All members of the team drive (play) from their respective Tee. Each player must have a minimum of 3 drives chosen during the round. The Team (Team Captain’s decision is final) decide which ball is the best for the second shot. The ball is marked and the other three players place their ball within 10 cm, NOT nearer the pin. The player whose ball has been chosen does NOT play the shot. The same procedure applies for the next shot. On the green, the ball is placed within 10 cm, NOT nearer the pin. All players must putt. For each Team there is only on Scorecard, which must be signed by two players. In the event that more than one Team has the same final result, the four handicaps will be added and the team with the lowest handicap will be the winner. The Teams are so combined, that the total Hcp among the Teams is balanced. Hcp Adjustment: The playing Hcp of a Team is 1/8 of the total Handicaps of all players.
Tuesday: Greensomes – two categories (Gross and Net) A Team is formed by husband and wife. Both players drive (play) from their respective Tee. They then decide which ball they choose to play and this is then the ball in play until they hole out, each member of the husband and wife team playing alternate shots. A penalty stroke does NOT change the sequence of play. A provisional ball, or after a penalty stroke, the next shot must be played by the partner. HCP Adjustment: 60% of the lowest Hcp, 40% of the higher Hcp. This score is valid for both players towards the weekly result.
