 Plowright Rules

  1. The Plowright Trophy is a team Stableford competition between all Areas within the Association played at the YRGA Vice-President’s home club. The teams are selected by the Presidents of each Area who should ensure the following:

(a) that his team is comprised of:

    • 4 players in Handicap Index division 15 – 19.4
    • 4 players in Handicap Index division 19.5 – 54

(b) that every player’s Handicap Index is current and that they have the correct proof on the day of the competition

2. Play will be individual Stableford over 18 holes played off the Yellow tees with 95% Course Handicap allowance in accordance with the WHS.
The three best cards in each Handicap Index division submitted by each team will count and the team with the highest Stableford total will be declared the winners.
In the event of a tie, the winners will be decided by a countback of the back 9, back 6, back 3 and so on down to the final hole if necessary of the combined six scoring cards of each team.

3. If at short notice an Area is unable to field a full team as shown above then that Area may still take part in the competition. That Area’s total score will be determined by adding the scores of a maximum of 3 players from each Handicap Index division. Players can play only in the division determined by their Handicap Index. In the event that an Area has five players in either division then the four players whose scores are to count must be nominated prior to play commencing.

4. In accordance with the WHS players’ cards will be returned to their respective home clubs so that their score may be recorded and their Handicap Index updated.
