Qualification for Championships
Qualification for the Gents' Club, B and C Championships is via the best 2 out of 3 scratch scores over the qualifying competitions being played on 30th May, 7th June and 13th June. The top 16 scratch scores qualify for the Gents Club Championship, the top 16 scratch scores of players with Handicaps between 10-18 qualify for the Gents B Championship and the top 8 scratch scores of those with Handicaps over 18 qualify for the Gents C Championship.
The best scratch scores from any of the 3 qualifiers competitions go forward to play in the ladies club championship. 8 from silver division and 8 from bronze division.
The knock-out match play stages start on Sunday 21st June, with Finals Day on Saturday 27th June.
The Juniors championship qualifiers have been running over five qualifying events, with the final qualifier on Friday 5th June. Qualification for Category A, B or C depends on having two scoring rounds, with the best two gross scores for each player determining which category they qualify for, in addition to their respective handicaps. The Junior Convenor has discretion to allow qualification based on one qualifying round in exception circumstances - for example this year one of our qualifiers clashed with a junior league match at Gullane. Once the final qualifier has been held, the draw for the three categories will then be made from those qualifiers who are able to play. Depending on numbers, quarter-finals are likely to be held on Monday 22nd June and semi-finals on Wednesday 24th June, with the finals held on Saturday 27th June along with the finals of the men and women's championships.
It is absolutely essential that all players in the match play stages should be available for all rounds, including the final. Anyone who is not available should not allow their names to be entered for first round draws. Accordingly, the draws for match play stages will be made from the top 16 etc who are available to play in all rounds. First round draws will be posted in this section on or around 16th June and results of all match play rounds will be posted as soon as possible after each round.
