EUGC PRIX DU CLUB


PRIX DU CLUB

Our traditional Prix du club 'end of season competition' will be played on Saturday 17/10 in Pierpont as a 3-ball Texas-scramble. Teams will be formed by drawing names. The draw is organized by the committee. Players of a team must represent at least two categories.


A three-ball scramble means that all three team members tee off on each hole and then decide which tee shot they like the best. They mark the spot with a tee or ball marker. The other team members pick up their balls and place them next to the marked spot. Each team member hits a next shot from the chosen spot. You continue to proceed that way until players have holed out. Each of the three player will be responsible for at least 5 drives. The rest is to be decided at the team's discretion.


Please note that 2 players from the same category will be allowed to play together at the maximum, the ideal being 1 player from each category.
Special thanks to our 2020 sponsors : EPSON, BESC, Furniture & Artcrafts, Pirate Café, a trendy brasserie located at a 10 minute drive from the European quarter and the Brussels Tangla hotel, the only 5 star hotel in Belgium, which is located in Woluwe.

A golf polo will be offered to all participants. We kindly invite players to wear this polo during the event and the prize giving ceremony.

Besides a very generous prize table, we will also organise side competitions during the event.

Asterix prize winners, club champions and the winners of our competition in Ostend will also be honoured on 17/10/2020.


We hope to see plenty of you druing the closing of this particular season. Inscriptions are open via Igolf.

EUGC ASTERIX COMPETITION

Each year the Committee designates a number of non-sponsored competitions which are identified by an asterix (*) in the calendar. This competition runs from April to September 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.


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.
