Winter Competitions Update

General Club Noticeboard : Winter Competitions Update


The Weekday and Weekend winter sweeps are now underway and open to men and women. Entry fee is £2 with an optional twos and back 9 sweep.
The Prize money each week is split: 80% to the weekly winners, with 10% going to a pot for those finishing with the best end of season overall eclectic, and 10% going to a pot for those finishing with the most Order of Merit points.
Order of Merit Points are awarded to the top 20 positions in each weekly sweep.
A player’s eclectic score takes your best score on each hole with a handicap allowance of one half of your new World Handicap System handicap (once they are available).
We plan to distribute the end of season Order of Merit and Eclectic prizes as follows: 1st (40% of the pot), 2nd (30%), 3rd (20%) and 4th (10%).
Full results and prizes, including up to date Order of Merit and Eclectic league tables for all players, are available on the website at:

In response to feedback from some members who would like the opportunity to play more than one competitive weekday round we are re-introducing the 60 and Over sweep for winter.
It will be open to men and women, and will take place each Thursday, starting on 29th October.
Entry will be via the HowDoIDo app with the usual fallback options to enter in the Pro Shop or by emailing the competition team at before teeing off.
The entry fee will be £1.
Note that there will be two competitions for those aged 60 and over on Thursday’s and it’s your choice which one to enter before you tee off.

Just in case anyone has missed the notice, Preferred Lies came into operation from Monday 5th October. Players can prefer their lies on the fairway, the semi rough and bunkers, by replacing the ball within 6 inches of the original position, no nearer the hole. Players can optionally use a mat on the fairway or semi-rough. Players CANNOT prefer lies in the plantation areas or thick rough. The full definition is available on the club website news items and in the locker rooms.

Unfortunately, Club V1 / HowDidIDo have not made team competitions available using the HowDidIDo app. Once they are available we will introduce a full range of winter team competitions. The next Olivers competitions will take place on the weekend 7th / 8th November.
