If you would like to be involved in Yelverton’s Emerton Court squad this year, please write your name on the list (on the Notice Board).

Eligibility.   In order to be eligible to take part, you must:

  • Be a registered member of DMVGA before 1 March 2018.   [See our Treasurer, Jack Bovingdon, in order to sign up.]
  • Be an active member of Yelverton’s Vets Section.   [‘Active’ means that, in the period between 1 March 2017 and 28 February 2018, you played in a minimum of THREE Vets qualifying competitions or Vets inter-club matches or a combination of both.]
  • Possess a CONGU competition handicap, maximum 28.

Organisers.   Keith Clench is the selector.   Admin arrangements for the matches are dealt with by Noel Preston-Jones.   Keith Stokes is our DMVGA representative and attends DMVGA meetings.

The team.   The team for each match consists of 5 pairs plus a reserve pair.   The reserve pair are required to play (usually going out after the remainder of the team) – and will be required to step in if someone from the 5 main pairs becomes unavailable on the day.

Who are we looking for ?   We want a squad of players (with a good variety of handicaps) who can play to their handicap and compete strongly in a match-play contest.

What happens next ?   This list will close on Wednesday, 21 February.   A trial will then be arranged (in March – date to be decided) in order to help Keith Clench to select a squad.

First match.   We have been given a bye in the First Round.   For the Second Round, we have been drawn to play against Great Torrington GC – both legs of this match are to be completed by 26 May.
