This year we are lucky to be sponsored again by RE/MAX ALLIANCE, through our own JJ Micallef, for the Captains’ League (CL). A big thank you to JJ.
For those that are new, the Captains’ League is a tournament open to all male members, where 8 teams compete (selected by the current Captain and 7 past captains) over seven competitions taking part on the various Saturdays throughout the season (see fixture list). There is an 8th competition that does not count to the score but celebrates the League with a lunch provided by the sponsor. The format is Stableford and in each round, the best 5 scores from the team are counted for that round. The final score is the best 5 rounds from the seven competitions from each team.
Last year saw Team Allsopp pip Team Jacobsen on the last day and Ingo Sausmekat taking home the mantle of the best player of the league with an incredible 37.6 point average for the rounds that counted.
To avoid disappointment please let me know if you wish to play and have not signed up. (Deadline was 5th October!). It is all gentlemens’ rights to join the CL at any time during the competition, given people’s changing circumstance, but it is poor form to rock up late through being slack – especially given this communication to bring in the stragglers.
Within the next week or so, the draw for the league will be made where the Captains of the eight teams will select their players. Last year was very close but the clincher for victory was a full complement of players who turned up to each competition – it really does make the difference.
You will be charged for all 8 competitions, no matter how many you actually play – this is to encourage participation, so please make sure let it be known that you wish to play.
Yours in Golf,
Mark Siddall, Competition Secretary
