Overview

A golf league for the reinsurance industry. Eight teams (each with up to eight nominated players) will play each other once in a league format. Players will come from the reinsurance and supporting industries (forensic accountants, recruitment, loss adjustors).

Format of Play - 4BBB Stableford
Each week a two player team will play a "Match" against another team using the stableford scoring system. Each plays their own ball for the round – the best stableford score of the two counts on each hole. The winning team is the one with the highest stableford point score.
Games are at 6pm & 8pm. Captains are responsible for ensuring their teams arrive on time for all games.

Handicaps
Players must declare a handicap. The organiser reserves the right to adjust any player handicaps.
