EUGC ASTERIX COMPETITION

Each year the Committee designates a number of non-sponsored friendly meetings which are identified by an asterisk (*) in the calendar.
This event runs from April to October and there are three playing categories: 0 - 16.4; 16.5 - 24.4; and 24.5 - 36.
At the end of the season, prizes are awarded in each category based on the best five scores, irrespective of the category in which they are played.
A player's final ranking will be in the category in which they played the majority of their five best rounds.

Matches with fewer than 15 players will not be taken into account in the final scoring calculation.

In the event of a tie in points, the lower handicap prevails. If by chance there is also a tie in handicap, the best average of the annual stableford results in asterisk (*) prevails. If by chance, the tie persists, a draw will determine the ranking.
The final classification is established the day after the last friendly meeting with the points and handicap of that day.


EUROPEAN UNION CUP

This is an annual 4BBB stableford competition.

Names are drawn at random to form teams of four players irrespective of gender, handicap category or nationality. Each team is attributed a European Union country to represent, also drawn at random.

 Mixed teams play together, e.g. two players representing Ireland play alongside two members representing Greece. If the four players representing Greece return the highest combined net scores, they lift the trophy.


EUGC WINTER CUP

The Winter Cup comprises five fixtures played from November through to March.

These are neither counting nor qualifying, meaning that handicaps are not adjusted.

Members play in three categories and prizes are awarded for the aggregate of the three best scores. The number of prizes is dependent upon the number of players in each category.

In the event of a tie, the player with the lower handicap is considered the winner.


EUGC CORA CUP - WIMEREUX, FRANCE

The CORA Cup is an annual international competition for 24 teams of eight golfers which takes place in Wimereux typically over the first weekend in April.  Each year the EUGC enters a team of eight golfers selected by the Captain comprising usually the members of the Club Committee, the winner(s) of the Asterix competition in first category, and/or the Club champions. There is a practice round on the Friday followed by a strokeplay (stableford) competition on Saturday and a foursomes competition on Sunday. The prize giving takes place immediately after the foursomes competition. The maximum playing handicap allowed is 18.4. However, if a team member has an official handicap higher than this, he or she can still be selected but will play off the maximum handicap of 18.4. The Club covers the team's enrolment costs for the CORA Cup, whilst each invited participant covers their hotel, food and transportation costs.
