Joe McKeever Memorial Protocols

Weather related protocols regarding to alternate day Joe McKeever Memorial competition 2018.
1. If the same greens and tee boxes are not in play for the 2 days of league competition then that particular round of the league is cancelled and the both days are treated as separate competitions in their own right.
2. That Round of the league will not be played the following week and is deemed void, (the 6 round format of the league allows for a couple of cancelled weekends).
3. If however the league loses 2 rounds due to inclement weather then it will switch to a players best 3 points/placings (rather than 4) to count towards their final individual league score.
4. If the course is open on just one of the days of the weekend there must be a minimum of 15 playing on that day in order for the competition to count as a Qualifying Round of the spring league.
5. Sunday (being the busier day) will see the course manager/green keeper and starter make every effort to have play but the overriding concern will be protecting the course is the in the event of frost. This will necessitate regular course inspections and a possibly shotgun start at the earliest appropriate time. Club website and text service will give updates in this event. The Course may differ from that played on Saturday. (See point 1).
6. Only the course manager/greenkeeper and or starter may walk the course to assess whether it is fit for play
