Jack Newton Knockout Trophy and Plate 2020
Tournament has been cancelled for 2020.
This competition is an annual event, run during the playing year at dates to be determined by the JVC in consultation with the Captain and committee and, terminating with the Finals, which are be played at the Club’s annual Gold Cup meeting. (December 2020).
This is an individual Medal-Stableford event (ie. “normal” Nomad scoring) designed so you can play at a number of Nomads monthly games.
If you are unable to play your match during a monthly Nomads game, then with the agreement of the opponents, matches may be played at any other course at any time before the closing date of any round. The match must be played on a Nomads format and in accordance with the rules of the Knockout Competition.
There are TWO competitions, the 'Jack Newton Trophy and Jack Newton Plate'.
All first round 'losers' automatically go straight into the 'Plate' competition.
