Welcome to the Hercules Paris Competition for 2021

I sponsored the first HGS event this year, but as we know things haven’t quite gone to plan, so it was more low key than I would have hoped.

So I am delighted to announce the 2nd HGS Pairs competition sponsored by Fore King Golf

Last years pairs competition was played at Wrag Barn over 18 holes.

Front 9 was one score to count, back 9 both scores to count.

The Winners were Jase Aylett & Paul Peacock who won some great prizes courtesy of Lidl.

Competition Format

Think World Cup Or Champions League Format, with a group stage and then knock-out matches.

Group Stage

Each Team will play against all other Teams in their group

3 points for a win

1 point for a draw

Goal difference – holes won.

Even after you have won, continue to play all 18 holes and this will give you the holes won goal difference. Which could be a deciding factor if teams are tied on points

The Top 2 teams from each group will qualify

Knock Out stages

Straight knock-out (no need to play all 18 holes if the game is won)

if a game goes to Extra holes – no handicap shots given (as they have already been used up during the 18 holes)

Venues

All Matches can be played at Wrag or Coombe, or at a mutually agreeable venue. There are a lot of members at the same clubs, so feel free to play your matches at home.

Buggys are allowed

The Final Will be at Manor House, Castle Coombe

Entry fees

Entry Fee £10 per player
Greens Fees to be Paid by the players at each game

Prizes

The Final Will be played at Cumberwell Park during the Ultimate Pairs Competition

This will be
4 Teams Of Pairs

Playing Format

Handicap Calculations

Each player receives 90% of their handicap

The lowest player plays off scratch and everyone else gets reduced by the same amount of shots the lowest player just lost

YOU HAVE A NEW handicap

The new WHS handicap system has now come into force. This means you will be playing off your new handicap which has been updated by the HGS Handicap Committee, you can find details on the HGS website

Please stay updated with your HGS handicap throughout the competition and please speak with a handicap committee member if you have any queries

The Group Stage Draw

If you’re interested in that kind of thing,
you can watch the video of the draw being made.

But I warn you, it’s pretty much a bloke doing copy/paste in excel.
if you do watch it I recommend you use the speed control and set it to 1.5

Everything should be plain sailing but in the event of a dispute please contact Steve as soon as possible.

Fore King Golf, in consultation with the HGS committee, will have the final decision in any dispute.

Steve King, the founder of Fore King Golf, started playing golf at the tender age of 29, after years spent playing many other sports and getting dodgy knees. Although late to the game, Steve soon fell in love with the sport and found himself, like many others, addicted to the pursuit of improvement and playing better. He is currently a member of The Kendleshire Golf Club & Hercules Golf Society, as well as running several competitions for Fore King Golf
