IGC Winter Cup Competition Rules 2017 – 2018

1. For events where Winter Greens are in operation, any stationary ball either equidistant from or closer to the hole than the length of the grip of a standard putter may automatically be considered as holed in one further shot (i.e. as a ‘gimme’).

2. A ball on a closely mown area of the course (i.e. an area cut to the length of the fairway or less) with the exception of the green (where normal rules apply), may, after marking, be lifted, without penalty, cleaned and placed within the diagonal length of the scorecard of the course being played such placing not to be nearer the hole.

3. Further to the above, Through the Green , a ball that is embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground may be lifted, without penalty, cleaned and dropped as near as possible to where it lay but not nearer the hole.
N.B. “Through the green” is the whole area of the course except:

  • The teeing ground and putting green of the hole being played;
  • All hazards on the course (i.e. water hazards and bunkers).

IGC Winter Playing Rules 2017 – 2018

The Winter Cup will be held from the beginning of November 2017 to end of March 2018. The format will be stableford from the tees decided by the committee for the day (normally front). The maximum playing handicap will be 36.

Scores from up to 6 cards will count – the committee will decide if this number should be reduced as a result of a large number of cancellations.

In the event of a tie for 1st place, the winner is decided by knocking out the highest and lowest card (1st and 6th), then 2nd and 5th and so on, until a winner is found.

There is one category.
You may notice a difference in your score on the day and that posted in Albatross – this will be because there was an error on the scorecard. For the Winter Cup, the Albatross score is the one that counts!

The Committee’s ruling on the day is final!
