Due to the adverse weather over the past 48 hours the Course Manager and Club in consultation with our Committee have advised that we will be unable to play any golf today. The Course is currently totally flooded and the indifferent weather forecast over the next few hours would not allow time to complete a further 18 holes qualification for Flight 1 and Flight 2 today.
Consequently, The Championship committee have re-structured the format of the Championship to reflect the current course conditions and forecasted weather between now and the end of Friday.
Qualification for Flight 1 and Flight 2 will be via Round 1 scores from yesterdays completed round. We will then revert to the original schedule and tee times planned for Thursday and Friday. Flight 1 last 16 matchplay will start from 8am tomorrow and Flight 2 strokeplay from 9:15am.
Flight 1 will comprise of the leading 16 hole gross scores, however given the conditions there will now not be an opportunity for a play-off for those tied for 16th place, so we will revert to countback.
Flight 2 comprises of 17th - 64th place (countback applies) playing 18 holes tomorrow and 18 holes on Friday.

Host Venue

Host Venue

Originally designed in 1908 by one of the famous triumvirate, Harry Vardon, over the years the course has been ‘tweaked’ by such golfing luminaries as Harry Colt, James Braid and, more recently, Donald Steel. It is considered to be one of the finest courses in the Midlands.

Set in 160 acres, the 6587 yard par 71 course is maintained to the highest of standards and possesses a series of interesting and challenging holes, including no fewer than six par four holes of over 400 yards from the Medal Tees, contributing to a standard scratch of 72 and demanding a mixture of skill and imagination to play them well.
