JOHN WHITE CARPENTRY SPONSORED WINTER LEAGUE 2022/23
This year’s winter league has now entered its 13th week. We had a bad start to the week with Jack Frost appearing again making the course unplayable, hopefully we are at the end of it now. The League runs until the 24th of February 2023 so there is plenty opportunity to get in the required rounds. The committee has agreed to extend the league owing to the fact of cold weather we endured leading up to Christmas. Prizes of Legs of Lamb will be awarded to all prize winners for winter league until end of February. Each prize winner will carry a 2-point penalty deduction towards further prize qualification until the end of the league. A player’s full score will count for the winter league. A player winning a second prize will be deducted 4 points etc. The format is 9 teams of 12 players with 10 rounds to be played. 6 teams out of the 9 will go through to the play offs. The Quarter finals are set for Sunday 5th March with the semi-finals on the following Sunday March 12th with Grand final pencilled in for Sunday 26th March 2023. A huge thank you again to our sponsor John White.
