Siren Starts commencing this Saturday (8 June 2019)
Well done to all teams who progressed through the first round of the Winter Cup! There were plenty of close matches out there… and some not so close (you know who you are).
The second round will be held on the 15th of June due to the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend.
Members should be aware that shotgun starts of 7:40am and 12:20pm will be commencing on the 8th of June to maximise the amount of completed rounds in a day with the reduction in daylight hours. This means after this week the Winter Cup matches will be at 7:40am for teams nominated in the morning draw & 12:20pm for teams nominated in the afternoon draw. The final will be held on the 13th of July. Please note your starting handicap in the event will form an anchor, you cannot play off a higher handicap in rounds following Round 1 but you can play off a lower one!
