    So if one player wants to play but the other won't agree a date, won't respond to requests/communications, stalls etc. then both players get kicked out?

    Thatís the policy for us as well - you can stand on the tee on the last day of the deadline at 2 oc clock - if your opponent doesnít appear within 10 mins you can claim the game , only have to let the pro shop know

    Re: Managing Club KO Competitions

    We use a challenge book system and only 1 player gets put out each round if the tie isn't played, the other player is awarded the tie based on the rules in the challenge book.

    Much fairer IMO as it doesn't penalise players who want to and make every effort to play the match.

    Guess that means that eventually they will stop winning them then....cant remember anyone above cat 2 winning at my current club. Yes, the higher guys will win the odd round, but they will bow out before the end.

    ours are seeded into Cat on the whole, well the first few games are, so as there are not massive discrepancies in shots given . but saying that our ave handicap is quite low.

    Itís not about winning or losing, Duncan. More the soul crushing inevitability that how you play has no bearing on the outcome.

    I speak as one of the few here who had ever given more than 30 shots in a match or who has regularly given high 20s. Itís just too contrived, not competitive and not much fun.

    There is a reason why the Fairway Dodger hits it like a girl!

    The same. If there is an issue, it has to be put in writing to the captain, but it has to be exceptional. Not played and both DQ'd. Plenty of time between rounds so no excuses really even in holiday season

    Re: Managing Club KO Competitions

    We use 'toss of the coin ' for matches not played by due date. A little bit of leeway is given for semi finals and final.

    I had to chase up one match this year, caused by one player getting through to 3 semis so given quite a bit of grace.

    Itís how we also do it manually - there are no extensions until the semi final - if you donít play by the date then both DQ
    I had a hell of a job last year, with two games going over the dates. One was a nightmare row, but both were disqualified. Then one pair in the Semi Finals couldn't play by the required date. I had no choice but to disqualify them. No if's or buts. Make sure you have rules to cover this!!!!!!! (Which we now have)
