It is with excitement that, as per a decision by the Executive Committee, the Union will be changing tournament conditions by limiting the restrictions of most of our closed / non-national ranking tournaments in order to accommodate more golfers. Handicap limits will be changed in order to accommodate golfers of all abilities (with divisions set where necessary) and tournaments will also accommodate both male and female golfers. We are hoping to increase participation in our events and also hope that by opening these tournaments up, golfers affiliated to GNGU will have the opportunity to play at different courses, in different formats of competitions and enjoy the variety and benefit of being affiliated.
We have two tournaments coming up where the conditions of competition have been changed to accommodate this decision and encourage players to enter:
