Mad March Jugs

MAD MARCH JUGS –  East Brighton Golf Club, Roedean Rd, Brighton   BN2 5RA  tel: 01273 604838

After a beautiful and dry week tomorrow is forecast to be dry, mild but overcast.  Up for grabs is the first silverware of the year currently held by Pat Layen & John Collingwood. The competition rules suggest the pairings for The Mad March Jugs Competition should be made on the day  –  so this will be undertaken at the venue between 11am & 11.15am by the Hon vice-captain in the absence of the Hon Captain, due to illness.

The competitions to be played for are:-

Main Event – Mad March Jug Trophies

Each Team will be issued with a yellow Bridgestone ball which should be alternated between the team players i.e. Player A responsible for scoring on the odd holes and Player B on the even – the team can tactically decide who is player A and who is player B. Whilst in play the yellow ball will double the stableford score for the team on the relevant holes, however, if it is lost (NB: which includes the ball leaving the course even if it is found), then the players will continue using a “normal ball” but for standard single stableford points.  I hope that is clear if not please clarify before trotting up to the first tee.

Individual Stableford

To keep everyone interested on their non-team scoring holes then an individual stableford prize will also be competed for off full society handicaps as usual.  In addition, the individual score will also count as a qualifying round for the player of the year competition and as such “normal” single stableford scoring counts i.e.  double bubble with the yellow ball only counts in Mad March Jugs comp.

With this in mind the Hon Handicap Secretary respectfully suggests that the normal “single” stableford score for each player is clearly shown on each card with a third column showing the Mad March Jugs Team Score clearly indicating where the points have been doubled and where, if indeed it does happen, on which hole the yellow ball is lost or leaves the course!

Tee times start at 12 noon with tea/ coffee and bacon rolls available from 11ish.  We have 20 confirmed players and five tee times – as this is a pairs competition any last minute withdrawals are potentially problematic and we would encourage anyone who has any doubts about their ability to make tomorrow to let us know as early as possible please (ideally not to drop out tomorrow morning).

Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow for a fantastic afternoon of golf.
