We currently have 2 Teams for the coming pennants season. Teams are:
Phil Leigh – Captain Norman Marshall Barry Kittler
Con Polkinghorne - Captain John Constance
I have had communication with GolfWA; pennants will be going ahead. The dates and fixtures will be published shortly. The original commencement date still stands.
A 3rd team will not be fielded. The Pirates that nominated will be reserves for the two teams. Please notify Phil to register your interest to be a reserve.
Jun-Jul 2021: GolfWA Pennants: Round 1, 13th June – nominations close 5th May.
Comps are all subject to Covid developments/restrictions
As we all know 2020 was a challenging year for fixturing and due to the lack of nominations and COVID-19 the 2020 Public Course Pennant Season was cancelled.
I have received a small amount of interest from previous participating clubs to conduct a Public Course Pennant competition therefore please find attached the nomination form and Pennant Rules for the 2021 season.
Following the feedback received in 2019, I am again distributing this information now in preference to early next year. You will note that the return date requested for nominations is Wednesday 5 May 2021 or before and there will be no entry fee cost per team.
Please also note the following regarding the upcoming season:
The rules have been based on previous years. In respect to the subject of a matchplay index, if a club does not have a matchplay index the stroke index is to be used.
It is proposed that the finals will held on Sunday 25 July 2021 at a metropolitan golf club(s) venue TBC.
Using the above date and working back six weeks and based on participating teams playing home and away matches, the commencement weekend for Rd 1 would be 13 June 2021. This will obviously be subject to the number of teams that nominate in various categories/pools.
To encourage more ladies to play, we again propose that composite Ladies team(s) from two clubs competing and I would encourage ladies to nominate individually or in numbers less than the minimum number required of three for a team and we will look to form composite teams.
Remember this game of golf is all about fun, meeting new people and about participating so join in!
This information has been sent to Team Captains listed on Nomination Forms from previous years, therefore should there be additional contacts within your club that would be interested in the same, we would appreciate if you would forward this on to them. Additionally, this information will be distributed to all affiliated public clubs.
If there are any queries relating to the above or attached please do not hesitate to contact me directly by email or phone.
