WHS qualifying: Swinley Forest is a very private and traditional club and they only have about three members competitions each year. For this reason they have no interest in adopting the WHS or obtaining a Slope Rating and Course Rating for the course. It is therefore not possible for us to run the two rounds as WHS qualifiers which is why you will not received an adjustment to your handicap.

In the past we have been able to use Fernhill Artisans course details for running the events as a WHS qualifier but Swinley closed down the artisan section at the beginning of this year so the Fernhill Artisan course details are no longer applicable.

Tees:  Gents - White Tees         Ladies - Red Tees

Prizes:  Each round will be a separate competition and both will count towards the Order of Merit. There will be prizes for at least the first, second and third place each round plus an overall 36 hole prize.  There will also be two Nearest the Pin Competitions for both rounds.
