Please arrive at least an hour before your tee off to allow time to register and ten minutes with the Starter and time for tutoring on the live scoring iPhone.

GOLF COMPETITION INFORMATION

This year, as well as the main golf competition, you will also be competing in The Sponsor’s competition giving your team entry into our own “Ryder Cup” competition on the golf course. This year the actual Ryder Cup is being held in France – hence the theme of the day!

Your team will be playing for either Europe or USA in this competition.

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 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 Team score card will also be given to you to mark your “Tour De France - Maillot Jaune” (Yellow Jersey ) competition and to use for main competition in case of system/signal failure.  Your manual score card needs to be returned to the Scorer at the end of your round together with the iPhone and your special numbered Maillot Jeune ball.

Scores entered on the iPhone will be used to determine the winner of the main golf competition and also the “Winners” of The Ryder Cup.  Each team playing for the “Winning Team – either Europe or USA” will receive a prize kindly donated by our Sponsors which will be given to the team Captains at the Golf Presentations.  Please note that there will be a “hidden hole” on the course where double points can be achieved which only the Scorer will know.

“TOUR DE FRANCE “MAILLOT JAUNE” (Yellow Jersey) Competition Rules

1    Tour De France will be a Yellow ball format using a special numbered golf ball relevant to the team being their “maillot jaune”. The team’s 1 yellow ball can only be bought on the team’s first tee - 1st and 10th Tees - at a cost of £10. If a team refuses to pay £10 for their ball it will be a fine of £20 to the charity.

2    Alternate players in same team use the “maillot jaune” numbered ball which will be highlighted on scorecard. For example Player A will use on Hole 1, Player B will use on Hole 2, Player C will use on Hole 3, Player D will use on Hole 4 and so forth.

3    The player using the “maillot jaune” ball uses his handicap Stableford score and will put his points in the highlighted box on the scorecard.

4    If the “maillot jaune” is lost you will NOT be able to replace it. This does not necessarily mean that you have lost this competition as others may have lost their ball earlier than you, so you still have a chance to win.

5    The Team’s “maillot jaune” MUST be returned to the Scorer Only in the clubhouse after your last hole together with your team card, iPhone and the S’echapper de Bastille Card (See below) at the end of your round.
