CLONMEL GOLF CLUB
The New Competition - Choose Your Partner
The first week of the new competition, sponsored by Martin Kane, seems to have grabbed the interest of the members and although the course was closed on Saturday there were still forty five pairs who made it to the starting blocks, 37 of those pairs playing on Sunday and it was nice to see so many players on the course on Sunday. Played over 11 holes (because the 3rd and 11th are closed temporarily) who could have expected the exceptional scoring with two pairs both on 33 points and only 4 points separating the first 8 pairs. In top spot in this first week were Rudolf Virdzek and Andrew Gartlan but they only won on the last 6 from Jim Butler and Paddy Kenrick. Rudolf and Andrew now stand on top of the leader-board with 10 points in the individual competition and Jim and Paddy with 7 points. By now all members are in tune with the fact that this competition - Choose Your Partner -is in fact a singles competition played in fourball format and the leading 40 players (and equals) will contest the Final which will be a Singles Stableford competition at the end of the eight separate competitions. The winners each week will receive a Voucher. The 11th hole is back in play so we’ll have the full 12 holes competition for the second week.
Just a note to all players that when completing the scorecard:
· The name of the competition must be written on the card
· The date played must be clearly stated on the card
· The actual handicaps must be entered on the card...it is not sufficient to enter only the number of shots allowed
· The scorecard must be signed by at least one player and must be countersigned by a marker.
