Not the Ryder Cup
Saturday, 25 September 2021, 07:57
Silves - Vila Fria,



The actual Ryder Cup is played over 3 days, but we have condensed ours into one competition, playing the same format -  EUROPE vs USA. 

This is a fully drawn team competition.

Please indicate Europe or USA when registering, or Either if you don't mind which. "Either" helps greatly with the ease of the draw, so thank you to any "Either"'s in advance.

As this is a team competition, the whole of the winning team will each receive a bottle of wine, whether you have won your individual game or not. Tip - if husband and wife/partner play for opposing sides, the household gets a bottle of wine, regardless of whether Europe or USA wins.

Team colours to be worn: blue for Europe, red for U.S.A.  

The first 6 six holes played will be a PAIRS BETTER BALL MATCH PLAY (as MM & K/O doubles)

The next 6 holes will be a GREENSOME PAIRS MATCH PLAY COMP (best drive then alternate shots)

The last 6 holes will be a SINGLES MATCH PLAY COMP (as singles K/O matches)

Everyone will be advised of the shots they receive for each section of the competition, once the final start sheet is published. For each of the six holes the winners will receive 1 point, or if all square a half point, so 4 points are at stake for each match - 2 pairs matches, and 2 singles matches.

The winning team is the team with the most points.

A presentation outside the clubhouse, after the match, is anticipated.

Social team match play competition using white and red tees.
