The qualifying round for The English Seniors’ County Championship will be played concurrently with the SWCGA Seniors’ Championship. The qualifying County shall be adjudged to be the South Western Counties Seniors’ Team Champions.
Each County shall nominate a team of six players from the eight players they have entered. The best five scores will be taken on each round. The County returning the lowest aggregate score from these scores will be declared the winner. In the event of a tie, the winner shall be the County returning the lowest aggregate score from its sixth player in each round. If there is still a tie, the winner will be the County returning the lowest aggregate score with all six scores for both rounds to count. Should that fail to produce a result, ties shall be decided on the last 9, 6, 3 or 1 holes of the last completed round. If a tie still arises it shall be decided on the last 9, 6, 3 or 1 holes of the first nine holes of the last completed round. If a tie still arises the first round should be treated in the same way. All six cards will be used in resolving ties in this way.
Each County must notify the names of the six players in writing to the Honorary Secretary by 11.00 a.m. on the morning of the first day of the Championship and EGU Qualifying Round.
