MONTHLY ECLECTIC COMPETITION
This competition is run each month and includes all our qualifying competitions played at Golf Del Sur on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturday Mornings and Saturday Afternoons.
Entry is 2€ in advance for the month with prizes for both first and second place. If you would like to be included, please contact Alex Rugen. You can dip in and out of it whenever you want which will suit people going home for the summer or for holidays.
The handicap allowance is 3/4 of your Handicap Index calculated at completion of the competition.
PLEASE NOTE: If a player is DQ´d in any qualifying competition the scores for that competition DO NOT contribute to their eclectic.

THE RESULT WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE FIRST PEANUTS PRESENTATION AFTER COMPLETION OF THE COMPETITION.
CHANGE TO THE MONTHLY ECLECTIC FROM DECEMBER 2023
The recent vote on a proposal to change the Eclectic Format has resulted in Option 2 being adopted. There were a total of 7 email votes with 4 players voting for this option.
As we have voted for Option 2, I agree with one players suggestion;
that rather than reducing a players score by a specified number of full shots, we should use a percentage reduction which will not be as penalising to lower handicap players.
Each month the winner will receive a 20% reduction on their Handicap Index for the following month and a 10% reduction for the month after. Second place would receive a 10% reduction only for the following month. This is for calculation purposes only and will be applied after the last qualifying game of the month.
