Winter Competitions

General Club Noticeboard : Winter Competitions

As the summer season comes to an end we have our final competitions over the next week, but our programme of winter competitions is now available in the diary on the club website. https://www.cityofnewcastlegolfclub.com/diary?year=2021&month=10 There are a varied set of competitions and formats:

WINTER TEAMS COMPETITION
The men’s Olivers competition will generally take place on the first Sunday of every month, although the October and November events have been moved back this year due to other bookings.
A variety of fourball and team competitions, open to men and women, will be played on one of the weekend days, when the Olivers is not being.
The City 130 Year Celebration event will take place on October 2nd, and times are available to be booked on the Club V1 Members app using the Booking option.
A men’s shotgun competition will take place on October 31st prior to the Neil Walker’s Captain’s Drive in.
A Christmas teams event will take place on Monday, 27th December.

WINTER SINGLES COMPETITIONS
A midweek singles stableford competition open to men and women will take place each week from October to March, where players can play one round on the midweek day of their choice (entering the competition prior to the round).

An additional singles stableford competition will take place at the weekend on the alternate day to the Olivers or the weekend teams competition.

SENIORS COMPETITION
The Thursday Seniors sweep for men and women aged 60 and over will continue during the winter.

LADIES COMPETITIONS
In addition, the Ladies section will be running a Winter League and a Winter eclectic over 10 rounds. Both of these are over 14 holes and played any day that members want to. There will also be a monthly competition, played on a Friday, with a variety of formats over 14 holes.

WINTER COURSE
We will continue to use the summer course while the course remains dry, and then move to the winter course when the course gets too wet, using the Winter card. The slope ratings for the winter course will be prominently displayed in the locker rooms, on the website and on the slope rating board.

The White competition tees will be removed this Monday morning, to give them a rest, and next Wednesday’s Pro’s Sweep will be played from the yellow tees.

COMPETITIONS OVER 14 HOLES DURING DARKER WEEKS
We will run all winter competitions during the darker weeks (Monday 29th November to Sunday 16th January) over the first 14 holes only. Players will still be able to play 18 holes, but the competition will be limited to the first 14 holes. The intention is to enable more members to play in competitions. Players will enter a zero on the card for the holes not played.

WINTER GOLF QUALIFYING FOR HANDICAP
Single rounds and casual rounds will continue to count for handicap purposes while preferred lies are not in operation in the semi rough.
