Please note that the start sheet closes at 12 noon on Thursday 24th August, not 17th August as stated on the website.

Due to this prestigious competition being held at AEGC Council have taken the rare decision to close the course all day on Wednesday 29th August, so that our Greenkeepers can have maximum preparation time for this event. The course will re-open following the conclusion of the County Championship. We do hope you appreciate the reasons for this.

If you are not intending to compete you are welcome to come up to AEGC on the morning of 31st August to support the competitors with the first tee time at 11.00am.

We are all looking forward to an excellent day.
