WORCESTERSHIRE JUNIOR ORDER OF MERIT 2015
The New Golfing Season is just around the corner and it is that time of year when we all start to plan our schedule for the year ahead. The 2015 Junior Order of Merit starts in May with Junior Opens at Gaudet Luce GC (Sunday 24th May) and Kings Norton GC (Wednesday 27th May). The full list of 2015 events is shown below. Most of these events already have entry forms available on the golf empire website.
The Junior Order of Merit is run alongside the existing events, and you do not have to enter separately. Points will be awarded to any Junior Member of a Worcestershire Union affiliated club who finishes in the top 10. Points will be awarded as follows:
1st place 150 points
2nd place 120 points
3rd place 100 points
4th place 90 points
5th place 80 points
6th place 70 points
7th place 60 points
8th place 50 points
9th place 40 points
10th place 30 points
Double points will be awarded for the Worcestershire Union Junior Amateur Championship event which is being held at Halesowen GC on Monday 27th July.
A cumulative points table will be posted on the Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs website www.mens.worcestershireamatuergolf.co.uk throughout the season.
In addition to any prizes awarded by the home club, vouchers will be awarded by The Worcestershire Junior Order of Merit for the top 3 Worcestershire Union Junior Members in each event. These vouchers will be presented at the final event, at Hagley G&CC on Sunday 20th September.
The overall winner will be the player who has accumulated the most points over the season, up to and including the final event at Hagley G&CC. The more events you enter, the more chance you have of winning. The winner will receive a complete Galvin Green Waterproof suit, and there will be a Nike Golf Bag for overall 2nd place and Nike Golf Shoes for the overall 3rd placed player. All ties will be decided by a count back on the number of 1st place finishes, then 2nd place finishes if required, and so on, over the whole season. The decision of the Worcestershire Junior Order of Merit 2015 Organiser is final.
The Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs would like to thank our sponsors, Galvin Green, and the 11 Worcestershire affiliated clubs who have agreed that their Junior Opens can be used as the basis for the Worcestershire Junior Order of Merit 2015.
It is not too soon to map out your season, and get your entry forms in for these Junior Opens. Good luck.
Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs Junior Organiser.
