Match Play Rules

MATCH PLAY RULES

All matches are to be played over Darley or Lochgreen from the White Tees, the challenger having the choice. Other tees at Darley or Lochgreen, or other venues may only be used by mutual consent.

1. The Challenger is the top name in the Draw, the Opponent is the bottom name.

2. Irrespective of who is the Challenger BOTH parties should make contact to mutually arrange the tie as soon as possible.

3. If an appropriate date cannot be mutually agreed the Challenger must provide three reasonable dates for his Opponent otherwise the Opponent will progress to the next round. If the Opponent cannot meet these dates, he will concede the match.

4. If a match is not played by the notified date, the Opponent will advance to the next round unless the Challenger has complied with the above.

5. The winner of the tie, whether played or by default, must inform Graham Donald as soon as possible after completion of the tie. If the result of a match has not been notified to Graham Donald by the completion date, it will be the Opponent who will progress.
THESE RULES WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL AN EXTENSION BE GRANTED FOR THE PLAYING OF ANY TIE
Regardless of the circumstances, if a player has any problems with the playing of a tie by the due date, it is incumbent upon them to contact Graham Donald for guidance.
