VET GOLFER of the YEAR

NAMBOUR VETERANS GOLF CLUB

Vet golfer of the Year

HOST and AWAY GAMES COMPETITION 2018

Concept/Rules of Play

In 2018 the plan is to introduce a trial competition where Vets will earn points when playing in or unsuccessfully nominating for home, away and District Championship games. Also place getters will get points if they run first, second, third and fourth. All players will play in the same division with stableford scores deciding the place getters.

In the event of a tie in stableford points, no count back will be applied i.e. both Vets will be awarded the relevant points. All grievances are to be referred to the Vets President or Captain.

Points will be awarded only to our Nambour players even though we might not win or place in the competition being run on the day. Our intention is to run this solely on our host, away and District Championship games. The player with the highest number of points at the end of the year (i.e. after the last home or away game) will be the winner.

We wanted to do something in memory of Artie Higson but the plan is that this competition will be in memory of all our past veterans who are no longer with us in a physical presence. The Allen Horsfall Shield currently sponsored by our Club Patron Joan Grace will continue to be run at our programmed Friday Vet competitions.

Points

Playing in an away game 3 points

Playing in a home game 5 points

Best Nambour player 10 points

2nd Nambour player 6 points

3rd Nambour player 4 points

4th Nambour player 2 points

It is hoped this will encourage players to travel and play in our golf days as set down in our calendar of events for the year.
