Righto chaps, only just over 3 weeks until we go. :whoo:

This will be the (my) final thread on the subject, and everything you need to know will be posted in here at some point so please keep an eye on it between now and the 26th.

The info will be made in separate posts to try to make everything easy to find and - more importantly - harder to miss.

Not everything is final yet, so information will appear over the course of the next couple of weeks.

Details

The postcode for the golf club is LN10 6PU.

Saturday 26th April, Bracken course. Tee times from 12:30pm
Sunday 27th April, Hotchkin course. Tee times from 9:40am

There is a range if anyone needs to warm up, but be aware it is a few hundred yards from the shop so give yourself plenty of time to get there and back if you want to use it.

We are staying at The Inn At Woodhall Spa, which is no more than half a mile from the golf course. The postcode is LN10 6ST.
Our evening meal is booked for 8:00pm.
I've not asked what time breakfast is served, but I'm guessing it'll be earlier than most of us want to get up.

It would be nice if everyone were there and ready to play before the first group tee off on the Saturday, but if anyone thinks they may struggle for time please let me know and I will try to put you in a later group.
I am hoping to be there from around 10:30am.

We (myself or Lincoln Quaker) will be collecting £5 from everyone on arrival to pay for the prizes.

I've tried to pair people up who either know each other or I'm hoping will get on.
I don't know everybody though so apologies in advance if you end up killing each other :D

Any problems please let me know.

Format

I wanted to make this more of a fun weekend than a competitive one, so have decided on a team format rather than an individual one.

Teams will be made up of 4 players each, and to keep things simple each team will comprise of the people from 2 rooms (apart from the single rooms!)

Saturday will be an Am/Am format, where teams play together and the best 2 stableford scores on each hole will count.

Sunday will be 4BBB, and you will play with your partner with a pair from another team. Teams can decide on their own pairings for Sunday after playing together on Saturday.

Tee times on Sunday will be in a sort of reverse leaderboard order, so...

8th team pair 1 & 7th team pair 1
6th team pair 1 & 5th team pair 1
4th team pair 1 & 3rd team pair 1
2nd team pair 1 & 1st team pair 1

8th team pair 2 & 7th team pair 2
6th team pair 2 & 5th team pair 2
4th team pair 2 & 3rd team pair 2
2nd team pair 2 & 1st team pair 2

Each team's final points will be their Am/Am score plus both of their BB scores.

Both days will be played off 3/4 handicap, with no handicap limit.

In the event of a tie, deciding factor is...
Best BB score
2nd BB score
If it's still a tie, countback on the best BB scores will be used.

Well done for organising Gary! Can't wait to get there now!

Is it worth starting some kind of travel to Woodhall Spa thread? Seeing as most people are probably in excess of 2 hours from the venue getting a couple of car shares is probably worthwhile.

Go for it, what's the worst that could happen :D

I'm sorted as I'm coming with a mate, but there'll be plenty on their own.
