Summer League Rules

Summer League (D.McLeod Trophy)

13 Teams Entered this years event and a draw was carried out on Monday 15th April at the Council meeting.

Last years Finalists Peebles and Jed were seeded and put into leagues 1 & 4 respectively, all other teams were drawn and Eyemouth and Innerleithen were last out and so will have to play off in a 1 off match at Kelso Golf Club before the 12th May with the winner going through to complete the lineup in league 4

Rules

An important difference in 2019 is that all league matches must be played by the stipulated round dates – The home team must give the away team 3 dates within the given week to play. If the away team cannot play any of those dates then the tie will be awarded to the home team.

Players may only play for 1 team during the entire tournament

All matches throughout the tournament will be Singles matches

Matches will consist of 4 Scratch Ties and 2 Handicap Ties (Maximum Handicap 12)

Scoring System in the leagues will be 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and 0 points for a loss. In the event of teams having the same number of points in the league the final league position will be decided on the highest number of ties won from all league matches. Failing that the result of the game between clubs will be taken into account with the number of holes up counted.

The winning teams in each league will go forward to compete in a semi-final then final at a neutral venue on the Sunday 15th September 2019
