This week is the Penrith Open, one of our major events of the year! Players will be competing for the Sutherland Cup for the scratch event and the Watkins Bowl for the Nett event.

In the event of a tie in the Sutherland Cup (Scratch) there will be a sudden death playoff on the 16th, 17th and 18th holes immediately after the results are known. In the event of a tie in the Watkins Bowl (Nett) the result is determined on a count-back. If you are involved in a play-off, please ensure you are available, especially if you played in the morning.

As we have a full field lining up please bear in mind your pace of play. Ready golf is encouraged and using simple techniques such as parking your buggy or cart on the exit side of the green, marking your card on the next tee while others are hitting, and being ready to hit by having your club selected and having your practice swing before it is your turn will all help. There will be marshals on the course throughout the day to ensure the game moves smoothly.
