Men's Collings & Calcutta Competitions

General Club Noticeboard : Men's Collings & Calcutta Competitions

Following England Golf’s recommendation that we can return to competitive golf, we have set up two of the men’s annual matchplay events: Calcutta Cup and Collings Trophies. We consider that these two events can be ran safely using the Club V1 and HowDidIDo apps, rerunning the process that was successfully in place last year.

Any members wishing to enter the event can enter from the Knockouts option on either the “Club V1 Members Hub” or “HowDidIDo” apps, or by logging onto their HowDidIDo account on their computer at https://www.howdidido.com. The closing date for entries is Wednesday 10th June at 8pm, and the draw will be made and published on the apps that evening. We will aim to play the final on Sunday 27 September.

The entrance fee for both competitions is £2 per competitor. Please ensure you have sufficient funds loaded on your club card. Additional funds can be loaded via the Club V1 Members Hub app (selecting the “Card” option from the menu).

Competitors must enter the result of each match via the Club V1 or HowDidIdo app on their phone; or at https://www.howdidido.com on their computer; or exceptionally, if you cannot access the apps, by emailing info@cityofnewcastlegoflub.com or notifying the Professional of the result).

Due to the late start in the season, the time period for each round will be limited to 2 or 3 weeks. To avoid fixture build up, all players who have not completed their match by the deadline for each round will be disqualified.

Collings Trophies: The format is traditionally Greensomes (alternate shot). However, for safe golf purposes we have decided, for this year only, that the format will be fourball betterball. Handicap allowances are calculated as 90% of the difference between each individual’s handicap and that of the lowest player.

Calcutta Cup: The Calcutta Cup is a singles matchplay competition. The higher handicap player receives an allowance of the full difference between the handicaps.

If you have any questions please email info@cityofnewcastlegolfclub.com, and a member of the competitions team will contact you back.
