The Summer Meeting and Club Championship qualifiers are scheduled for weekend of 12th & 13th June, with sign up opening on Intelligent Golf, from this Saturday (15th May) at 07:45am and will close to entries on Wednesday 9th June at 17:00
With covid guidelines still shaping what we can and can’t do, an online sign up will be in place for this year rather than the normal boarded process. We hope this improves your sign up experience and all going well, this will be in place for future years.
Please see the below sign up information and conditions of competitions;
INTELLIGENT GOLF SIGN UP:
Sign Up via the igMember App under upcoming competitions, the Summer Meeting can be found under 12th & 13th June dates. Please give the app a few seconds to update as you scroll down.

CHOOSING YOUR TIME:
For players who are looking to qualify for the Club Championship & Doctors Trophy who require 36 holes on the same day, please select the course, No.1 or No.2, you wish to play first on either the Saturday or Sunday morning. Your second round tee time will be populated by GGC staff 4 hours and 48 minutes after your first round on the opposite course e.g. a 08:00 tee time on No.1 = 12:48 tee time on No.2.
For players who are looking to qualify for the Marston Trophy and only require 18 holes on No.1 course, please contact myself, 01620 843 769 or Starter Box 1, 01620 843 115 and we will offer you a tee time between 11:04 - 12:16 on either Saturday or Sunday. Please DO NOT book a tee time on Intelligent Golf as this will stop a player, requiring 2 tee times on the day, to book and play.
Please note that you cannot play on both days for qualifying purposes or in both competitions.
Any individual cannot change their date of play without the consent of their playing partner and not after the closing date for entry.
