I am wondering if there is any place advertising open competitions in the Sydney area over weekends, in medias such as website, brochure snail mail to golf clubs etc. I am mainly interested in competitions aimed for single handicap comps but not necessarily only.
These would be amateur comps only, strictly no professionals, which resembles the pro tour as close as possible. They would all be stroke play comps with prices for 1,2 and 3 place such as gift cards, products, equipment etc. The entry criteria would typically be a max handicap level which would decrease based on the amount of signed up competitors. Not sure about the algorithm here but something like this:
If the projected max handicap level is 5.0 for a total of max 150 competitors.
- If you have 200 registered then 5.0 - ((200-150) / 150) = 4.67, hence the 50 players with a handicap above 4.67 can not enter or if handicap is the same, last person entered etc.
When I used to play back in my home country (Sweden) we used to have these type of comps about twice a month within a radius of 150km of my local golf club. It was great fun and it was a great opportunity to play and compete against similar people in the area as well as the chance to play at private courses hosting such tournaments.
I guess my question is: are there these type of comps in Australia and if so, how do you find out about them.
