Chapter Match Play Event
 Our popular annual event has grown over the past 3 years and we have made a few changes to accommodate even more participants. Firstly, there will be 2 Flights with a Trophy for the winner of each flight and a plaque for the winner of the Consolation Round in each flight. Secondly, kick-off is a little later this year and the match play will run into the Autumn months.  

If you haven't tried Match Play before, I hope you give it a try.  It is yet another way to enjoy the game of golf and get to know some of our fellow members better!  You will need to establish a handicap to participate and 5 recorded scores within the past year so that it is equitable for all participants.
