    Captains Card Comp - Advice Required

    We currently hold a 18 hole Stab comp off the whites, full handicap on a wednesday during the summer, known as the Captains Card, part of the entry goes to his Charity.

    This years Captain wants to change the format and has asked for advice, he proposes the following:

    18 hole Stroke comp off the whites, full handicap, comp to be open mon-fri, members can enter every day if they wish, non-qualifying.

    Obviously a few issues with his proposal, but basically, can we do it and if so can you run a comp like this on software.
    Titleist 917D2 - Driver, Titleist 917F2- 3 Wood, Titleist 917F2- 5 Wood, Titleist 816H - 22, 25 & 27, Mizuno MP18-SC 6-W, Vokey Wedge 52 & 56, EDEL E-1, Handicap 12

    If it's non-qualifier, you can do what you like. I don't know about the software part of the question though - it will probably help to state what software your club uses, I'm sure there will be some experts along shortly.

    Not really any rules issues if it's planned to be run as a non qualifier.
    Just set it up as a series of NQ one day comps for the days its open as the easy option, then pool the results to get the overall winners. If you run it as a single NQ alternate day comp I'm not sure they permit entry on more than one day - If they do then that's even easier.

    any old irons,

    12.2 and moving the wrong way again...

    Don't understand the desire to change from Stableford to stroke play? Imo, makes rounds slower and less enjoyable - keep it Stableford!

    Captain off scratch, believes majority of comps should be stroke, entries will determine whether it’s a good idea or not.
    Tbh, I’m more concerned somebody could be way under Par and not be cut.

    Re: Captains Card Comp - Advice Required

    for me the only problem could be trying to enter multiple cards for the same player for one competition.

    surely it would be better to just post the cards in a designated box, which could be checked and collated on the Friday evening.
    IN THE BAG
    Orka GS5 10* Driver, 3 wood, GS5 19*, 22* & 25* hybrid,
    Orka RS5 4-6 irons, Orka RS3 7-PW irons
    Orka J29v 52* 56* wedges, Taylormade Rossa Monte Carlo putter

    H/C
    2017 start 13.6, >13.7, >13.8, <13.2, >13.3, >13.4, >13.5, >13.6, >13.7, >13.8, >13.9, >15.9, >16.0, >16.1, >16.2, >16.3, >16.4, >16.5

    Your club uses Handicapmaster software. I believe their "best of series" competition template will answer your Captain's needs. It will allow you to specify the 5 days as the series and you have different options to identify winners, including the best individual score over the 5 rounds - and a player can play as many of the rounds as he wants.
