The Spalding Trophy

The event will take the format of AC advanced play, alternate strokes doubles. This innovative format is designed to allow experienced players to support improving players when playing advanced level play. All games will be 26 points and 3 hours long.

Pairs can be submitted in the following ways:

1) Clubs can select pairs from their membership;
2) Individual players from different clubs can form a pair (for instance it would be possible for a pair to be formed with a player each from Meadows and Glasgow Clubs.

The venue at Knightswood has four lawns. It will be possible therefore to accept multiple entries from both clubs and individual pairs. The format for the weekend will depend on the number of entries received. Doubles pairings should typically be a low handicap player (between minus up to 5) and a high handicap player (between 6 and 12) although there can be flexibility with these handicap values.

Clubs are asked to publicise this event and to send Brian DurwardPGEgaHJlZj0ibWFpbHRvOmJyaWFuZHVyd2FyZEBnbWFpbC5jb20iPkJyaWFuIER1cndhcmQ8L2E+ their pairings in advance of the event.
