Shooting that and you're in b grade at aa small club. Must be a healthy dose of good players out of that 50?

Par 66 😎

And 4 par 4s under 300 meters helps haha.

Few other clubs use the system kyrgios.

Oh I should explain our only day of play is Sunday at 7am.

My closest rival in b grade had his baby's first birthday last Sunday so he would have got shot if he missed that and one of the A graders had his daughters wedding.

Plus you should see the amount of bad rounds on the first one as it's the day after the grand final.

In days gone by 95%+ of big amateur events were matchplay. There's a lot more stroke events out there now and I can't help but think that this is to better prepare the good ones for a future in the pro ranks.

I am still of the belief that an amateur champion should be declared via matchplay. Have a trophy or 'stroke champion' for the low qualifier if need be.

Been lucky enough to be involved in both formats at the pointy end of a club championship and there was by far more buzz around the club in the matchplay event.

I expected most clubs to have similar requirements, but I see there is some variety.  I'm a member at two clubs.


Club 1:  Three rounds of stroke, aggregated. Starting handicap determines which grade but results are based on gross scores. There is also a 'best nett' overall.


Club 2: Two rounds of stroke, aggregated.  Starting handicap determines the grade, results are on gross scores.  Top 8 in each grade go into match play playoff.

When I played in my last club champs it was a four round stroke play event. I was in the final group of the seeded draw and finished runner-up in the end. 



I had already mentioned the format Piney does, but I needed another avenue to say that I was in the final group

 If you win the Matchplay it shows that you are a good matchplayer 1 on 1

 If you win playing 4 rounds of stroke play you are the best golfer out there for those 4 rounds

  Matchplay you have to beat 4 or 5 other players. ( Not easy )

 4 rounds stroke play you have to beat 40 or 50 or more ( Bloody hard )IMO.

We alternate between matchplay and stroke. This year was stroke, and 4 players were within 1 shot of each other with 3 holes to play. No lack of interest
