CALLING ALL GOLFERS!!!! 26-06-2019 Club news: 41 Club Primary

Hello fellow 41 Club golfers!

I'm writing to inform you of next year's 41 Club National Golf Finals Day, which has been designed in a new and (hopefully) more popular format, in response to many Clubs' and Members' feedback which included:

The venue is too far to travel for just one day of golf”

  • Previous one day National Golf Finals have not been particularly well supported considering the number of golfers in an Association of our size - this has been primarily because of problems for players travelling long distances to the venues.So in 2020 it will be a two day format.

We've already scheduled our own Region / Cluster / Club golf competition this year”

  • Previous events seem not to have been advertised early enough, making it difficult for Clubs to submit teams or individual players. So this time there's plenty of notice - 15 months!

Our Region/Cluster/Club doesn't have a competition but many of our Clubs would like to play in a National 41 Club event”

  • In an ideal world, the National Finals would be between the winners of the various Regional Golf Competitions, and would follow on in the same year. Regions vary however, some have their own competitions, some have 'Cluster' competitions and others don't have any formal Golf competitions.
  • So in 2020 the National Finals will take place at the start of October - to avoid clashing with other competitions. Also, the 2020 National Finals will be open to Full and Honorary members with a certified golf handicap of all Affiliated 41 Clubs - not just winners of local 41 Club Golf competitions.

See the advertisement for event details but in summary the format of the event is:

  • Venue - Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club, Birmingham
  • Dates - Sunday 4th & Monday 5th October 2020
  • Two days of golf (Aylesford and Arden courses)
  • Sunday dinner with wine
  • Bed & breakfast
  • Prizes for winning individuals and teams for each day and overall
  • Stableford format (max 28)
  • Teams of 3 or 4 players (best three scores count)

All this for £125 per person!

Interest in the event and demand for places is expected to be high so to secure your place, a deposit of £35 per person is required by 31 August 2019.

Please discuss within your Club and contact me via region24@41club.org or 07710 063394 as soon as possible.
