CONDITIONS FOR CLUBS TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE
WHLCGA GIRLS’ ORDER OF MERIT COMPETITION 2023
WORCESTERSHIRE & HEREFORDSHIRE GIRLS ORDER OF MERIT 2023 (OOM)
The new golfing season is now upon us and it is that time of year when we all start to plan our schedule for the year ahead. Since we put the original list of clubs taking part, there has been some changes, so please check. There are 8 Junior Opens in the OOM, plus the County Girls Championships. The Girls Order of Merit always starts with the Droitwich Girls Open. The full list of OOM events are shown below. Most of these events already have entry forms available on the Golf Empire website (www.golfempire.co.uk).
The awarding of points will be made after the results are known and will appear on the WHLCGA website (www.whlcga.org), Girls menu. Points will be awarded to any girl who is a member of a Worcestershire or Herefordshire affiliated club according to her finishing position in the event. You must enter at least 3 events to win a prize. Points are awarded as follows:-
All events will have points awarded for GROSS and NETT positions. The Girls County Championship will be treated as two competitions – the 36 hole strokeplay and the 18 hole Stableford. Double points will be awarded only for the placings in the 36 hole event.
A cumulative points table will be posted on the WHLCGA website, Girls menu.
At the end of the season there will be 3 overall OOM prizes. A best Gross, and 1st and 2nd Nett. The best Gross will receive £50 and trophy, the 1st Nett will receive £30 and trophy and 2nd Nett will receive £20. The prizes will be in the form of vouchers. In addition, we have secured sponsorship from Glenmuir and their prizes will also be awarded. In the event of an outright winner of both Gross and Nett prizes, both trophies will be awarded to the winner, but only one voucher. All ties will be decided by a count-back on the number of 1st place finishes, 2nd place finishes if required, and so on, over the whole season. The decision of the County Girls Committee will be final.
You do not have to pay to enter the OOM. When you play in any of the Junior Opens chosen, your results will be returned to the County and the spreadsheet will be updated accordingly.
It is not too soon to map out your season and get your entry forms in for these Junior Opens. The more events you enter, the more chance you have of winning. Remember, you need to enter at least 3 events to win a prize.
