Full details of your tee off time will be sent to your team coordinator/host. It is recommended you arrive at least 1 hour before your tee off time. This will allow time to register, pick up your players pack, have a practice swing, compete in the putting and chipping competitions, or pick up something to eat at the BBQ.

The Competition/Rules

 

A four ball Ambrose competition will be played. It is not essential to enter a full team and those entering as a single, double or triple will be partnered with other players to make a team of four.

Each team can have only one single figure handicap player.

No team can have four players whose handicap is over 21. An ideal team would be 1 x 'A' Grade (12 or under) player, 2 x 'B' Grade (13-18) players and 1 x 'C' (19+ player).

A maximum handicap of 24 for men and 30 for women will apply.

 

Each player's tee shot has to be used on at least three occasions.

Once a team member has hit his/her ball on the green all players are restricted to just ONE putt. If none of the putts are holed the balls must be picked up and counted as two putts.

The team captain will be the lowest handicap player and will decide which ball is to be played.

Any team which includes one or more lady golfers will benefit with an addition of 2 strokes to the Ambrose handicap e.g. handicap of 8 1/4 would become 10 1/4.

 

Team events

Special prizes will be awarded to teams for events on all holes. These can only be won by the team making the winning shot and can only be won once. All events will carry over from the Thursday to the Friday.

 

Hole-in-one Prizes

Some hole-in-one prizes may be valued in excess of the regulations pertaining to amateur golf. In the event of winning any of  these prizes the prize has to go to one of the charities supported on the day as chosen by the successful player. The player does not have the option of keeping the prize for himself or herself.

 

Buggies

To speed up play two ride-on motorised buggies will be provided to each team at no additional cost.

If you are unable to bring your own clubs you can hire them from the Pro Shop.
