The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

The Na­tional Scratch competition is be­ing re­in­stated by the As­so­ci­a­tion of Jewish Golf Clubs and So­ci­eties af­ter a gap of six years.

The tour­na­ment, which will be hosted by Abridge Golf & Coun­try Club on Septem­ber 5, is open to all Jewish male golfers with a hand­i­cap of nine or less. The scratch competition will be de­ter­mined by the low­est ag­gre­gate gross score of morn­ing and af­ter­noon rounds with ad­di­tional prizes for sec­ond and third. In ad­di­tion there will be prizes for the best net score in the af­ter­noon round.

A spokesman for the As­so­ci­a­tion said: “We are proac­tive in our de­sire to reach out to UK Jewish golf, and feel that an in­di­vid­ual competition to de­ter­mine the best Jewish golfer is at­trac­tive to those who have for many years par­tic­i­pated in team events.

“It is hoped that there will be a strong turnout to en­sure that the event be­comes a ma­jor fix­ture in the As­so­ci­a­tion’s golf­ing calendar.”

En­try fees are £70 and ap­pli­ca­tions are open un­til Au­gust 22. En­try forms can be ob­tained from af­fil­i­ated clubs.
