BOOKING MATCHES BY HOST CLUB
As soon as the draw is received, the Lady Captain of the host club should book a tee time for every round with her club, in the event it is required as a match venue. If this is not possible, the Organiser must be informed immediately. If your course is not being used for the first two rounds, please book the dates of further rounds. If you have not been contacted within a week after a round has been completed, it is safe to assume that your course will not be required for the next round. Public courses, and 9-hole courses, are not used for Munro matches.
TEE TIMES/DRESS RULES/LOCAL RULES/TROLLEY BANS etc
The Lady Captain of the host club should contact the Lady Captains of the competing clubs, to arrange the time of play, please take into consideration travelling times of the visiting clubs. The Lady Captain should also advise visiting teams of any temporary local rules, dress rules, trolley bans etc.
ETIQUETTE - HOST CLUB
The Lady Captain of the host club should either be present herself, or appoint a deputy to welcome players and caddies, and arrangements made beforehand with the visiting teams regarding coffee/sandwiches etc.
Two players, not necessarily the same in each round, represent each club (a player may only represent one club in that year). Matches are 18 holes, played off scratch, with sudden death if the match is all square at the 18th. When two matches are taking place at a venue, the first match is that which is higher up the draw sheet. The honour on the tee goes to the club at the top of the draw. If the first match is playing slower than the one behind, they should offer to call them through.
The match result must be submitted using the Results form as soon a possible on the day of the match. This is very important to allow the organiser to contact the club at the next venue.
THIRD AND SUBSEQUENT ROUNDS
As soon as the results of the 2nd round are known, the Organiser fixes courses for the third and subsequent rounds. Details of the fixtures are sent to the Lady Captains of the clubs involved and posted on the County website. The same procedure is followed after each round.
The final is played over 36 holes, with sudden death if all square at the end of 36 holes.
A referee will oversee the final. As well as decisions on the Rules of Golf and Local Rules, the referee will monitor the speed of play. The Management Committee has applied a time regulation. This states 'the maximum time allowed from reaching the ball to playing the shot shall be 60 seconds'. A player taking more than this will be given two warnings, and if continuing to take longer than the 60 seconds, will be penalised by the loss of that hole, in accordance with Rule 6-7.
Buggies are not permitted unless sanctioned by the County Association and the host club (see Use of Buggies).For further information please see Rules and Conditions of Play
