Champions of Champions Draw 2011

The first MCLGA committee meeting for 2011 took place last night at Liberton Golf Club. The Champion of Champions draw was made and is available on the website by clicking on the left hand side of this page under DRAWS.

Following a survey of members, the committee made a decision that Distance Measuring Devices will be permitted in MCLGA competitions this year. The following rule applies to all MCLGA competitions:

"Players should note that electronic Distance Measuring Devices (DMDs) may be used in MCLGA competitions only if the relevant Local Rule has been adopted by the course in question by the club committee. Devices which measure functions in addition to distance (e.g altitude, temperature) are not permitted in any circumstances, even if these functions are switched off. The penalty for using such a device on the golf course is disqualification."

Please note that DMDs are NOT permitted in the 2010/2011 Winter Foursomes and should not be used for the remainder of the rounds.
