Weekend Eclectic

 

The Eclectic Challenge will be based on the results from  Weekend competitions.
The competition will be Free Entry and will include all competitors Men, Ladies & Juniors.

A players eclectic score will be their best gross score on each hole which produces a best possible gross round score minus 2/3rds of their current handicap on the date of report, which produces a best net eclectic score. The eclectic leader board will be updated after each round of the competition and prizes will be agreed & funded by the Committee from club funds for the final results.

 

Obviously the more competitions you play in the better your chances of improving your score as the best score for each hole is taken. However your handicap may change, if your normal handicap reduces or increases and this may also change your eclectic score. Any cards/scores from individual competitions which have been disqualified may not be put towards your eclectic score as the software in some cases has to ignore them, so please remember to return and sign your scorecards even if you have had a bad round as an individual score for a hole may improve your eclectic score.

 

The following competitions will be used : All Sunday Qualifying Competitions from 1st April to 30th September

 

Why 2/3rds of your handicap? Simply if we use full handicap it heavily favours the high handicap players & if we use no handicap it heavily favours the low handicap players. After running sample reports from last years data using many different allowances the use of 2/3rds produces the fairest results allowing low, medium & high handicap players

to feature at the top of the leader board.

 

The Competitions Committee have agreed that 2/3rds be used.
