Welcome to Somerset Golf Union 9 Hole Championship
12th October 2019
I am sure that your club will have noticed the growing interest in nine-hole golf competitions over the past few last years. Both the R&A and England Golf are investing time and money in promoting a national competition as they firmly believe that the format will play a prominent part in the future of golf.
We at the Somerset Golf Union are also keen to lend our support and are following up a suggestion made to us by Taunton & Pickeridge GC in 2018 to organise a County Champion of Champions Competition.
Each affiliated club in the county is invited to organise qualifying events during the summer and send their champions through to the County Final. There will be separate categories for Men, Seniors and Ladies.
The final will be held on the Channel Course at Burnham & Berrow Golf Club on October 12th, 2019 by kind permission of the Club and is being sponsored by Brittany Ferries. Trophies have been donated by the President and Vice-President of the Somerset Golf Union.
A nominal entry fee of £5 per player attending the finals will be payable to assist with the prize fund and administrative costs.
We hope that your Club will be supporting the event and would be grateful if you would confirm your participation to the County Secretary Rob Davis at; firstname.lastname@example.org. How and when you organise your qualifying competitions is entirely down to you.
Details of the winners should be notified to me as soon as practicable after the event, and the closing date for entries will be September 30th, 2019
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing your Club represented at the final
