Kiscadale Salver

E-mail Print

Presented by the Whiting Bay Ladies.  This is a scratch match play competition held in April each year.  The format is a foursome with two pairs from each club playing in each round.  The competition is played as a round robin normally held over five rounds, (dependent upon the number of teams playing)  the winner being that club with the most points once all the fixtures are complete.  The location changes each year, rotating between Brodick, Corrie, Lamlash, Machrie, Shiskine and Whiting Bay.  Each club is represented  by a team of six players and a non-playing captain.  Any four of the six can play in any given match. In a change to the rules, the 2014 Kiscadale was altered that in the event of a tie both clubs will share the trophy. 

As the final day of play (the Saturday) - is usually a tense and exciting day with everyone wanting to take part,  each club takes it in turn 'not' to play.  This is determined alphabetically each year.

The Island Championship is made up of the eight players who have the lowest total of four scratch scores from the seven competitions played each season i.e. the Cir Mhor, the five Drumadoons and the Flockhart.   

The Championship itself is a Match Play Scratch competition and is played at the end of the ALGU season between May and August.   The original Island Championship trophy was presented by the Corrie Ladies. In 2011 this trophy was returned to the Corrie Golf Club to be displayed in their cabinet.  In 2012 a new trophy was  donated by Pat Adamson and Viv Parks.

Presidents Prize

E-mail Print

The President's Prize is played in the 2nd year of the outgoing President.  The winner is the player with the best NETT score.  In addition, to allow for teams to be picked in plenty of time and for people to organise their diaries, the draw for the Kiscadale the following April will be done after this competition or the first Drumadoon.
