Competitions Explained

 

 Competitions marked (QC) qualify for your handicap.

Competitions marked (NQC) do not qualify for your handicap.

All competitions are played off the red ball markers on the Tee Box.

You must sign the ‘Signing – In’ book in all individual competitions or you will be disqualified.

 

Stableford                     A qualifying competition where you score points on each hole, determined by the STROKE INDEX allocated to that hole and calculated on your net score:  Net Bogey = 1 point; Net Par = 2 points; Net Birdie = 3 points; Net Eagle = 4 points.  If you can’t score any stableford points on a hole you should pick up your ball and move to the next Tee box. At the end of your round, your stableford points are added up. The winner is the lady with the highest total points.

 

Strokeplay                    A qualifying competition where you need to ‘hole out’ on all 18 holes.  If for any reason you fail to complete a hole and pick up your ball, just write 0 on the card and move to the next Tee box. Your card will be a No Return (N/R) for the competition but will still count towards your handicap. Atheendof your round, your score on each hole will be added up and your playing handicap deducted from that total. The winner is the lady with the lowest net score.

Scramble                           Players are ‘drawn’ to play in teams of three or four. All ladies tee off, the best tee shot is then chosen, marked and all ladies play from that marker. Each player then plays her OWN ball until it is holed. The best two scores count on each hole.

 

Chatsworth Pairs         Greensomes pairs competition (Stableford format)


Drives & Putts               Individual fun competition. If your tee shot lands on the fairway (on the green on a par 3) you score 10 points. Nothing counts until you reach the green. For every putt you take to hole out, you take 1 point off your running total. If you don’t hit the fairway with your tee shot on hole 1 the number of putts you take are minus points. When you have completed your round, you ADD HALF of your handicap to the total points you have accumulated over the 18 holes.


Foursomes                        Played in pairs. Player 1 elects to drive the first hole and will then tee off on every odd-numbered hole. Player 2 tees off on every even-numbered hole. After the tee shot, players play alternate shots until the ball is holed.


Four Ball Better Ball  (“4BBB”) Played in pairs. Each player plays her own ball throughout but only one score counts on each hole. (This is normally played as a stableford competition so the best stableford score of the pair counts as the team score on each hole).


Greensomes               Played in pairs. Both players tee off, the best tee shot is selected and that ball is then played by the other player. Thereafter, players play alternate shots until the ball is holed.


Gruesomes                 Played in pairs. Basically the same as Greensomes above, except the worst tee shot must be selected and that ball is then played by the other player. Thereafter, players play alternate shots until the ball is holed.
