President & Vice-Presidents Cup Ladybank Golf Club
Update on Presidents Cup entries
At last, we are able to kick off our playing season at Ladybank on 20/21st May, where we will be playing for the Presidents Cup and Vice-Presidents Cup.
However total entries of 191 exceed the numbers we can accomodate by 50.
Open article for full details of those who were sucessful in the ballot, and those on the reserve list.
23rd April 2021
As you would expect, the demand for competitive golf is high after our enforced lay-off, and this has resulted in a record of 191 entries for this event. We normally restrict our field size to 129 but given the demand we have managed to negotiate additional tee times to accommodate 141 players.
Unfortunately, this has resulted in 50 of our members being unsuccessful in the initial ballot and being placed on a reserve list. The ballot is carried out in accordance with the current ballot rules which can be accessed here and are also available on our website. The handicap index as at 22nd April (closing date for entries) was used for this purpose. BALLOT RULES
I have attached 2 lists to this email:
Successful entrants in alphabetical order. CLICK HERE
Reserve list of entrants, in handicap index order. CLICK HERE
If any player now cannot make this event, please advise me as soon as possible so that your place can be offered to the next player on the reserve list.
For those on the reserve list, places will be offered in strict order from 1 – 50, as and when spaces become available. If this is prior to the draw being conducted, then preferred tee times will try and be accommodated. If post draw, then tee time offered will be dependent on time that is available.
I appreciate that this will be a major disappointment to many, if not all of you, but demand has significantly exceeded supply. If you are unsuccessful in gaining a start time, then your entry fee will be held in credit for you for future use.
