BJGT Summer Cup – Event Information

British Junior Golf Tour - Summer Cup

27-29 July 2020

The third BJGT Summer Cup, contested over three days, will (for the second consecutive year) be taking place at the fantastic Macdonald Hotels Hill Valley Resort, in Shropshire.

Set in wonderful grounds, the Championship Emerald Course, designed by Peter Alliss, will provide a great test of golf for the players.

While the indoor leisure facilities will sadly need to remain closed, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the on-site hotel still provides the most convenient base for the event.

BJGT OOM points and trophies will be available each day and we will be crowning an overall champion in each division after 27 or 54 holes (depending on category).
The overall champions in each category on Wednesday (29th July) will be those players with the lowest aggregate gross scores over 3 days.

Please click the link below for full operational changes for BJGT events, but note that some relaxation of these restrictions will apply for this particular event, whilst still observing social distancing; details will be communicated via the event email.

COVID19 Information and restrictions will apply, and these regulations are changing on a regular basis, so please keep up to date.

Event Information

Tour Policy:
We highly recommend that you read our Tour Policy, showing all you need to know about the rules and regulations regarding playing an event with the British Junior Golf Tour, although please bear in mind the operational changes due to COVID-19.

Caddie Rules
Players are permitted one caddie to assist them on the course; they are there to help with pace of play by carrying the bag, handing clubs and raking bunkers, etc.
A caddie will be wearing a caddie bib collected from the BJGT team at the start of the day, and they will need to return their caddie bib at the end of play.
Coaching is not permitted, lining up is not permitted, and NO assistance may be given on the green.
Caddies are to stay off the greens at all times.

Pace of Play
This is a very important aspect of the game and one we are constantly monitoring at events!
9 holes should take no longer than 2 – 2 1/4 hours and 18 holes no longer than 4 – 4 1/2 hourrs.
It is a requirement that all groups keep pace with the preceding group, NOT just keep ahead of the group behind!
‘Play-ready golf’ – be prepared to play before it’s your turn, walk between shots at a good pace, leave the green once you have finished a hole and mark your card on the next tee.
Unless there is a mitigating circumstance, i.e. a ruling is required (in which case the group behind should be called through), slow play will be monitored and penalised in the usual way. If a group does not finish within 15 minutes of the group in front, a penalty of 2 strokes will be added to all players in the group.

Please ensure that you check the link again prior to the event on Monday 27th July, as there WILL be updates to the start sheets. Tee times for Days 2 and 3 will be published once play from the previous day has finished.
