A preview of 2017.
First and foremost I want to thank Nigel once again for all his hard work and input on so much of what we have done to make 2017 the best season ever!
Alternate Shot and Match Play: Once again we have made another attempt to for members to play this format in two new events (Oktoberfest and a few special events during The Quest for The Holy Grail)
Members are not obligated to play each match in this format. This is only an option.
Please see the details for each of these on the appropriate page.
All the details for the following are forthcoming!
The Quest for the Holy Grail: Replaces the Ryder Cup and new teams are being formed.
Three new events, The Golden Knight Challenge, Oktoberfest and a great new “twist”added to The Holy Grail partners event.
Basically you will be partnered with a PGA professional in nine monthly medals. This will be a separate event from the Monthly Medal and only your scores posted will be used along with your partners score in the 1st round of select PGA events.
French Open: This event will no longer be played on par 3's and in 2017 we will play this event on Pebble Beach.
Calcutta Cup: Will only be played on Best of Par 5's.
Golden Knight: It will be divided into four quarters, with a playoff. The playoff format will be determined at a later date.
The World Series and The World Cup: As well as any other match play event will have a deadline.
If any match is not played in approximately 30 days scores posted in the next upcoming monthly medal will be used.
The Ashes Series: A new much simple point structure.
Survivor II: Will have a new format you and your knave must survive the nine scheduled events and lowest score wins.
Monthly Medal: There is added importance to this event this year as scores posted in these tournaments could decide a members win/loss in The World Cup, World Series and The Oktoberfest (details forthcoming)
Sponsorship: Any member can sponsor a tour event and generally a sleeves or two of balls are awarded to the winner.The current list of sponsored events are shown below.
Anyone who has not sponsored an event is more than welcome to do so. Just contact El Presidente and your name will be added to the list.
