As we restart golf after the Covid lockdowns, we will move to a generic system of rankings that can be called upon at any time we need to ‘select’ teams to represent the Association in competitive golf.
The rankings, which will be presented in age groups (55+, 65+ and 70+), will be based upon the best 6 results from the previous 16 competitions, (eg.when the 17th competition is played, the 1st competition’s results will be dropped to maintain the latest 16, and so on).
A cycle of 16 competitions has been chosen, as this is the ideal number of competitions we will hold between our National Finals event held each year in September. T
Teams will be selected 2 months prior to the competition, minimizing the period between qualifying and representing the Association and allowing time to manage diaries and travel. The top players in the relevant UKSGA Rankings will automatically qualify. Players competing in the European Seniors Golf Team Championships will not be eligible for other representational duties within the same season, in order to give other members an opportunity to play.
A listing of all representational competitions/matches can be seen as a downloadable PDF below, showing the play date, team selection date and playing format in order to deliver a transparent process, visible to all members.
