The following are some points of interest that will help you navigate your way through the Final Series.
When your team entered the Pennant earlier this year you agreed to allow the Committee to use your course for the Final series, if needed. We try to minimise travelling as best we can and ask for your understanding realising that we have teams from the Lower North Coast and South Coast / Highlands who cannot play a finals game in their Division, and therefore we avoid using their courses.
1. The Finals must be played on Neutral grounds, i.e., when two teams meet, neither has played on the course allocated to them in the Final.
2. The order of play is reversed in the Finals so that first off will be the 1 and 2 players, the last to tee off being the 7 and 8 players. New Game Result Sheets will be placed on the website during the last week of the Rounds. Do not use the Sheets that you used for the Rounds. A copy of the GRS for the Finals is attached.
3. Members of the Committee will be present and in charge at all Finals games, Convenors are welcome to attend, plus spectators from Clubs.
4. The Game Result sheets are the responsibility of either the winning team or the Committee member in charge and we ask that results be in the hands of the Captain as soon as possible so that we can determine where the next round will be played. Trouble has been experienced during the rounds by not typing the correct email address. It is:
5. In a game the first team to reach more than 4 matches won is declared the winner. All unfinished matches are then declared halved and must cease play. Games that are tied 4 all in Rounds 1 and 2 of the Finals will be decided by the Mc.Pherson Rule. Semi finals, Finals and the Grand Final results are achieved differently to Rounds 1 and 2. Consult Rule 8 in the Rules of Play. Go to RULES on the website.
The result of all games in the Finals can be found under RESULTS. Click on 2022 Finals Results.
Good luck to all teams that have qualified for the Finals.
