La Manga Club Golf - Residents Golf - Pairs Matchplay

Pairs Matchplay 2020.

The Pairs Matchplay comprises both single sex and mixed pairs, with pairs split across 4 leagues of 6.

Each pair will be required to play the other pairs in their league (5 matches) between 15 January and 16 October 2020 (matches to be organised individually by each pair). At that point the winners of each league will enter the knock-out phase of the competition.

In arranging individual matches, teams must mutually agree on the timing and the course to be used. If agreement cannot be reached as to which course to play, the toss of a coin must be used. Please arrange your fixtures asap in order to coordinate your LMC visits.Ideally all matches should be played, but this is not essential. The more you play the better your chance of winning your group.

The knock out phase Semi-Finals and Finals will take place through November and December. The draw for the Semi-Finals will be made soon after 16 October. If a pair is unable to compete in the knock out stages, the next highest scoring pair in their league can take their place.

All matches will be played using 90% of the difference to the lowest handicap player (ie normal Pairs Betterball Matchplay rules). All players in each individual match, apply slope to their own handicaps to establish their “playing handicaps” for the day. Lowest handicap player then plays off scratch, and other players are “given” shots based on 90% of the difference between their playing handicaps and the lowest handicap player.

Each pair will receive 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw. All matches to be played to 18 holes, with bonus points of 0.1 per shot for the final winning margin (ie a pair that wins 5 up, receives 0.5 bonus points (5 x 0.1), in addition to their 2 points for the win).

In the event of a tie in the final league table in October, results between teams will determine the final league table order. If that was a draw, the toss of a coin will decide the winner (very unlikely due to bonus points).

Match results and any queries or disputes, must be sent to Eamonn O’Connor at
