UPDATE ON PINK CHARITY GOLF DAY

 Thank you to those that have entered the Charity Golf Day on 10th April, we have well over 40 confirmed entries so it promises to be a really great day. We can also confirm that we have over 30 prizes  for the raffle and the sale of the 300 tickets is going well, they will also be available to buy on the day (if we have some left!!)

In advance of the day there are some updates to advise you of.

Draw for teams – this will now take place on Wednesday 8th April in Leos bar at 9 pm.

Golf and Handicap details. We have been asked to clarify these;-

·         There will be individual prizes for the best score by a lady and the best score by a man, in the case of ties the lowest handicap will be the winner, in the case of a further tie the scores on the card will determine the winner (best last nine etc )

·         There are team prizes for the best 3 teams – best two stableford scores at each hole to count.

·         There is an additional Pink Ball team prize – using an actual pink ball to be played in strict rotation by each member of the team – as marked on the card. The “pink score “ also contributes to the team score if it is one of the best two scores on each hole. If you lose the pink ball then the team score is final at that point. If you score on the 17th /18th holes then you must RETURN the pink ball!! You can choose to play the pink ball (or not) at any hole – in other words if you think the nominated player of the pink ball may lose it you can choose not to play the pink ball - but this also means that this player cannot contribute to the team score on that hole either!!

·         HANDICAPS. The default handicap to be used will be your Friday Golf Society (FGS) Handicap. If you do not have an FGS handicap but have a Spanish Federation Handicap then you should use this. If you have neither an FGS nor a Spanish Fed handicap then you should use your official Club or Federation handicap from your home country. If players wish to declare or use handicaps other than on this basis then please contact the organisers with your request.

·         Every effort will be made to make up teams of 4, if this is not possible due to late withdrawals or no shows then the usual “Doris principle “ will be applied.

 Entry fees, if you can pay your entry fee in advance – Friday Golf on 3rd April, Monday golf on 6th or Tuesday Golf on 7th then please do this as this will save time on the Charity Day itself. If you want additional suppers for partners/spouses on 10th, then please let us know, we would also appreciate an indication of your choice of supper of Chicken Curry or Lasagne (or a vegetarian option if required)
