Club Champion – Men’s Section Club Championship
The Men’s Section Club Championships take place over 2 days. The Scratch Club Champion is the player with the lowest gross score after the 2 rounds and the Handicap Club Champion is the player with the lowest nett score after the 2 rounds. This is the pinnacle of the golfing year for the Men’s Section membership. Sunday’s tee times are drawn in reverse order to the results on Saturday, so a late start is only guaranteed if you play well.
