2017 GENERAL CONDITIONS APPLYING TO ALL GRADES
These Pennant Conditions are to be read in conjunction with the supplementary conditions issued for each particular grade (see under each grade).
ACT Monaro District Golf Association Pennants are governed by the Match Committee of the ACT Monaro District Golf Association, and in these Conditions, where the word “DGA Match Committee” is used it means the Match Committee of the ACT Monaro District Golf Association. Any decision on Rules, required during play of the preliminary rounds, will be given by the Match Committee of the Host Club, and any decision so given will be final. The Match Committee of the ACT Monaro District Golf Association reserves the right to alter or vary these Conditions at any time.
The playing of all Semi Finals and Finals will be administered by the ACT Monaro DGA together with a nominee of the Host Club as necessary.
Payment of the appropriate Pennant Team Entry Fees ($44 per team, includes GST) to the Sec/Treasurer of the DGA, prior to the start of the season, would be appreciated.
2017 PROGRAM Contests between Clubs will be played on dates fixed by the DGA Match Committee, but
– the dates of the contests may be altered by the DGA Match Committee; and
– in the event of any Club refusing or neglecting to play on the dates fixed, the Club will be deemed to have forfeited the Contest.
The full program with venues, dates, and tee times is available on www.actgolf.com.au Home page — Pennant.
HOST CLUB RESPONSIBILITIES
Buffer Zones – For all Pennants, Clubs should allow a generous buffer to ensure that members and Pennant players can maintain an appropriate pace of play on the day. It is also suggested that the club competition on the day when hosting be a Par or Stableford event to promote minimal round times.
Course presentation – It is expected that each Club involved in Pennant competition will present its course in a condition of the high standard that Pennant golf deserves.
Provision of Match Committee during Preliminary Rounds – During the preliminary rounds it is the responsibility of the Host Club to appoint at least one person to act as the Match Committee for the entire period of play. No member of the Host Club who is playing or acting as a caddie shall make or take part in making a decision. The Host Club is also responsible for bringing to the DGA Match Committee’s attention any breaches of these Conditions. The Host Club’s Match Committee can determine any matter within their designated responsibilities:
Ensuring that matches commence on time and remain on time;
Monitoring slow play (and issuing penalties as required);
Adjudicating on any Rule of Golf, or these Pennant Conditions.
