REGISTRATION (Friday 15th September)

Registration will take place in the Club House at ELTON FURZE.

 

Registration desk open from 6.50am - 11.15am

Team Captains: PLEASE ensure you register with ALL your team present.

Pro shop open from 7.00am

Tea/Coffee only will be available on arrival.

Due to the large entries, we shall be using a two Tee start. This will benefit the player on two counts - one you will have an hour to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat after playing nine holes before you play your next nine! The starter will provide you with the timings for your second nine holes; and two - we hope to get the field finished earlier so that you can go back to the hotel and be ready for an amazing evening!

Please arrive at least an hour before your tee off to allow time to register, enjoy a cup tea/coffee and have ten minutes with the Starter and time for tutoring on the live scoring iPhone.

1st Tee 7.30am - 11.00am Men Yellow Tees
10th Tee 7.30am - 11.00am Ladies Red Tees

GOLF COMPETITION INFORMATION

Your team will be given a football team name enabling you to have a chance of winning "The Cup" which will add to the fun element of the day.

Your team's Football name will be given to you on confirmation of entry.

(Football Team Names have been allocated alphabetically to tee times apart from Mr Hadley's team).

Please see the attached sheet on the rules for "Road to Wembley".

In addition, we are delighted to inform you that once again we will be using a LIVE scoring system using iPhones organised by “Golf Score Live” kindly sponsored by Quai Administration Services. Full tutorial on use will be given on the day so please ensure you allow enough time prior to your tee off.

MAIN GOLF COMPETITON

"The golf competition will be a Four Ball Stableford Team Event with the best 2 scores on each hole determining the team score. The handicap limit will be 24 for Men and 30 for Ladies and players will receive a stroke allowance of ¾ of their handicap. However, when completing your confirmation sheet for return to the Organiser, please simply write down your official/normal handicap. My golf registration team will check your handicap on the day and help you to make any adjustments that are necessary. If you do not have an official/normal handicap please write 28 for Men and 36 for Ladies and we'll work things out from there."

Team Captain to enter ALL FOUR GROSS scores after each hole using the pre-programmed iPhone. A manual score card will be given to you as well in case system/signal fails. If you have had to use your manual score card please return to Scorer at the end of your round with the iPhone together with the £5 fine from player who has the Yellow Card – see rules of Road to Wembley.

Scores entered on the iPhone will be used to determine the winner of the main golf competition and also the Winning Football team and Runner's up of “The Road to Wembley” competition. Please note that there will be a “hidden hole” where double points can be achieved which only the scorer will know.
