The Social Golf Club Pennant series returns bigger and better in 2019. Our Pennant series is designed to give all golfers the chance to compete in a fun and friendly Match Play series. You can form you own team from mates, other club members or work colleagues and compete on great quality golf courses across Melbourne for the chance to play off in the final at the famous Victoria Golf Club.
ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN FOR OUR 2019 SERIES.
The 2019 series will be capped at 24 teams. Teams will split into 6 Pools of 4 and compete in 3 Pool Matches, with the top 2 teams from each Pool plus the next 4 highest ranked teams advancing to the sudden death Knockout Matches until 2 teams remain where they will compete at Victoria Golf Club in the final.
Each Pool will consist of 4 teams which will be drawn at random once entries have closed. Once the Pool Matches have been completed the advancing teams will then be seeded and progress through to the Knockout stage.
Qualifying teams will be ranked based on the points they have accumulated in the Pool Matches and will play off according to the Knockout Draw until the final at Victoria Golf Club on Sunday 4 August 2019.
The lowest marker in each Contest shall play from Scratch (0) and their Opponent will be allocated shots to the amount equal to the difference in Daily Handicaps between both players. Shots will be allocated according to the “Stroke” index at each particular course.
