LADIES – Stroke Play Events

Note: Entrants must have a CONGU competition handicap but may play with non-competition handicaps in order to reinstate competition handicap however they may not compete in the competition.

When Competitions run over more than one day, members must play within the restrictions of their membership category. Note: if entering a competition during the weekend, unless a competition time is online, this must be done by contacting the pro-shop to enter your name on the timesheet as a competition entry, as well as entering via the PSI system when you arrive.

A ‘junior’ is any member who has not reached their 18th birthday on the day of the competition or, in the case of knock-out events, by the closing date for entries. Junior girls are excluded from the Captain’s prize and President’s prize competitions for the Ladies, since the juniors have their own competition on another day.

New lady members, who attain their first handicap at Bush Hill Park, will be awarded a glass on winning their first competition.

Cups: Juniors may only play when in a group with at least one adult member.

Medal & Stableford competitions: Juniors will be allowed to enter these competitions on Sundays with the alternate day ladies, or on Wednesdays outside of an individual’s school time, so as not to encourage absence from school.

Note Also: Where there is a competition which runs over more than one day (e.g. monthly medals and stablefords), practice on the competition course or part of the course will be permitted (Rule 33-2c) on any day of or between rounds of the competition. Please note: that the term ‘practice’ in this condition permits a player to play on the course in any way that they wish e.g. whether this be a social game, mixed foursomes, match play, etc., although obviously does not permit the player to play in the competition more than once. Note also: The position of the tee markers and holes may change on the 2nd day. This is allowed under rule 33-2. It should also be noted that if the competition is cancelled on the 1st day, for whatever reason, players may still play on the 2nd day if conditions have improved.

Prizes: Note where glasses are awarded the cost of these must be covered by the entry fees received i.e. a minimum entry of 6 to award a glass for first position and 10 entries for a glass to be given for second.

Tees: Unless otherwise stated Ladies competitions are played from the red tees.
