Is played in 2 teams of 2 players. All players play their own ball for the
entire hole (therefore 4 balls). The lowest of the 2 scores per team will
count as the team score. This format is also known as 2-person Best
Ball or Better Ball.
In a team of 2, players will hit alternate shots until the hole is finished.
Player 1 hits the tee shot, player 2 hits the next shot, player 1 the next
and so on. On the next hole, player 2 hits the tee shot, player 1 the
next, etc. In effect, one player will tee off on the even holes and one
player will tee off on the odd numbered holes, which is why this
format is also known as Odds & Evens.

This is a stroke play competition played in teams of three players, the
handicap allowance, taken from the team’s gross score at the end of
the round, is 10% of the team’s combined playing handicaps. E.g. total
gross score = 84 minus 10% of (12+18+22 = 52 10% = 5.2) = 78.8.
Record this as the net score.
All players tee off on all holes, a minimum of 5 tee shots, drives, per
player must be used as explained below. The team then selects the
drive to be used and marks the position with a tee peg six inches from
the ball not nearer the hole. The other players then retrieve their balls.
All players then play with 300 mm (12 inches) of the tee peg, not
nearer the hole, in any order the ball being placed on the fairway, but
must be dropped from any other area, including hazards. The above
method of play is followed until the green is reached.
On the green the same method applies. The ball chosen is marked and
all players putt from that spot in any order. Each player marks his ball
after putting. Play continues from each position until the ball is holed.
If a player putts and misses and then inadvertently knocks the ball into
the hole, that score counts.
The teams gross score for each hole should be marked on the score
card in the right hand side “Points” column. The player who’s drive
was used is marked in the A, B and C players column as (1) to (5)
indicating how many of his drives have been used. Click here to see a
typical completed score card. The score card to be signed by two
members of the team.
1. The competition will be played on the designated Tuesdays during
the winter 2018 / 19. It is a handicap stroke play (medal) competition
for the Senior Section Winter Cup with prizes also for the 2nd &
3rd place players.
2. It will run in parallel with the Roll Up Stableford played from the
Blue Tees. Players do not have to participate in both competitions but
must compete within the Roll Up organization in order to submit an
3. The eclectic format selects the players best score on each hole from
all the rounds played and from the gross total score for all 18 holes.
The nett score is calculated by deducting half of the players official
playing handicap on the final day of the competition. In the event of
ties normal stroke play countback rules apply.
4. The appropriate entry fee must be paid before any cards can qualify
for entry. However unlike past years there is no restriction on the
number of cards which can be taken into account (previously
maximum 10). Accordingly once the entry fee has been paid the
player’s cards will automatically be included in the competition and
there is no need to either note the card or signify the intention to
submit a competition card before teeing off as in the past.
5. All cards must be fully signed. Note: This is a stroke play
competition and a score must eventually be returned for each hole
before a qualifying nett score for the competition can be calculated.
Scores for completed holes in an incomplete round still qualify for the
eclectic, subject to the rules above. Scores on temporary greens do not
qualify for the eclectic.
