All IGC members are eligible to play in the Monthly Medals, the format of which is net stroke-play. Although previously played from the back tees, we now play the Monthly Medals in similar fashion to most other IGC events – back and front tees are used dependent on handicap.
The Monthly Medal Final at Falnuée on Oct 12 comprises the top four players (and ties) from each of the six Monthly Medal events. Players who have already qualified, are not included in the pool of players who contend for the four “qualification” slots at each event.
Andrew Budd recorded the best net score at the first Monthly Medal at Rigenée GC. He won again at the second Monthly Medal at La Tournette. This allowed fifth-placed Bill Purdue to take the fourth “qualifying” berth at La Tournette.
