9 Hole Qualifying Competition
The Men’s and Ladies’ Committees have agreed as means of selecting Donabate’s qualifiers, to run a series of competitions whereby members could over a period “informally” play a 9-Hole qualifying competition on one or more occasions, sign in and enter their scores on completion of the round. The idea is that a member could, for example on an afternoon/evening, agree with a friend(s), male or female, to play nine holes and s/he could come to the club and, subject to availability, enter the 9 hole R&A qualifier on Club V1 which would be running over a four week period. Before coming to play in the competition, members should, as they would for a round of social golf, check with the golf shop to ensure availability of the designated course. A member could play several times over the period and the best card by a man and woman over the period would count. Members are in fact encouraged to play several times.
A 9-hole Invitation mixed competition will be set up on Club V1 on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays starting on Friday 27th April and ending on Friday, 25th May. While the course is more likely to be available in the evenings after 5 pm, it could, subject to check with the golf shop, be available in the mornings or afternoons. Mondays and Thursdays have been omitted so as not to interfere with the Open Singles on Mondays and the Mixed on Thursdays. Members entering the competition will be required to sign in on Club V1 prior to starting play and enter score in Club V1 on completion of the round. The cost of entering will be €4. Entry fee will be deducted in arrears through Entry Sheet(s) set up for that purpose.
As the qualifying series continues, a list of the leading qualifiers (men and ladies) will be kept and posted on the website each week.
