TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

COMPETITION: INDIVIDUAL MEDAL

DATE: 7/8 APRIL

HOLES: 36

 

This is the big one. The one that gives you those first tee jitters and the trophy that any Member would want to hold. The Bonanza Championship will determine our Champion Golfer of the year. The format is individual medal over 36 holes and the course is setup for Championship conditions.

Members can look forward to red carpet treatment and get to feel what it would be like being a tour pro! Our advice….don’t wait for the day before to get some practice in – start your prep well in advanced and then just let it happen.

DIVISIONS INCLUDE:

MENS, LADIES AND JUNIORS.

TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

DATE: 2/3 JUNE

HOLES: 36

FORMAT: BETTERBALL STABLEFORD, BOTH SCORES TO COUNT ON 9 AND 18

 

Played under the watchful eyes of our resident Kingfisher, the Kingfisher Cup is a betterball stableford competition with a twist. You and your partner will be under pressure playing the  9th and 18th hole as both scores count on these holes.

The event is played over 36 holes and pairings should not be disheartened if they are behind the leaders on day 1 as ground can be made up should you both perform on the Kingfisher holes.

TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

DATE: 12 May

HOLES: 18

FORMAT: FOURBALL ALLIANCE 1 SCORE TO COUNT

 

DETAILS

You will want to get your fourball practising their putting in the lead up to this event, as typically those with the hot putters will walk away with this trophy. Fourball alliance with just the one score to count means that tactically choosing your order of play on the greens can put less pressure on your partners, and be the game changer at the end of the day.

A fun event which includes a prize for the best dressed fourball!

TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

DATE: 3 FEBRUARY 2018

HOLES: 18

FORMAT: INDIVIDUAL STABLEFORD – 5 CLUBS ONLY

 

DETAILS

Don’t be surprised if you improve your game after this event. The format will force you to become very creative. Shot-making, imagination and visualisation will be key to your success.

Players will only be allowed to carry 5 clubs in their bag and club selection will be crucial.

The late Seve Ballesteros would certainly have been the King of this event.
