Golf: format confirmed for Winter League at Port Bannatyne

Details of the format for the 2012-13 Winter League at Port Bannatyne Golf Club have been revealed.

The competition, which will again be sponsored by David Reid and Rothesay Motor Services, will this year feature 21 pairs, split into three divisions, with seven pairs in each.

The top two in each division will qualify for the knockout stages, along with the best two points-scoring pairs from any of the three divisions, while the winning pairs in each division will receive prizes for their efforts no matter their fate in the quarter-finals.

In addition, courtesy of the tournament’s sponsor, the pair with the biggest winning margin each week will win a meal and a drink ‘voucher’ for the following Winter League Sunday.

All this information and more can be found on the appropriate notices in the clubhouse foyer, and all players are urged to read these carefully.

Details of the first round of fixtures can be found in the clubhouse and in the next issue of The Buteman - on sale from Thursday, October 18.
