Rules for the Mixed Doubles Competition

Last Updated 6th April 2019

Mixed Doubles Foursomes Knockout

This is a Foursomes knockout matchplay competition that runs throughout the season.  Each pair must comprise one lady member and one gentleman member, each with a club handicap.

The entry fee must be paid before the draw is made.  In order to ensure that the competition is completed on time, it is important that each round is completed by the due date published on the draw sheet.  It is the responsibility of the first named pair in each tie to contact the second named pair in order to arrange a suitable time and date to play the match.  However, if the second pair have not been contacted, then they should assume some responsibility and attempt to contact the first named pair.  If no suitable date can be found then the match will be played on the final day allowed. The relevant player(s) will report to the Club Professional’s shop at 5.00 pm on the day and play will commence as and when the first tee becomes free. Should only one team/player turn up they may claim the match.   There will be no extensions granted , therefore if the match is not played or claimed as above, both teams will be ‘scratched’ and a bye awarded.

Play is to be as per the Foursomes format, i.e. alternate strokes.  The handicap limits are 20 for men and 30 for ladies.  The handicap allowance is 1/2 difference of the aggregate handicaps of each side.

Men play off the white blocks, Ladies off the red tees - the order of play off the first tee being the players’ choice.

In the event of the match being all square after completion of eighteen holes play, the match will be decided by a ‘sudden-death’ play-off, handicap strokes to be taken as per the first eighteen holes of play.
