EMMASTAD CUP ELIMINATION SYSTEM
The 2015 Emmastad Cup elimination system has been revised as follows:
CUT 1: As of July 1, 2015 only the top 80 EC point earners as of June 30, 2015 will be able to earn EC points.
FINAL CUT: As of October 1, 2015 only the top 50 EC point earners as of September 30, 2015 will be able to earn EC points.
In order to give those player who are on “the bubble” the opportunity to make a last-minute sprint to make the cut, we have increased the EC points to be earned of the last two matches before each cut by 25%..
2015 PRESIDENT’S CUP
Due to the fact that we were not able to get 32 players to compete in the round of 32 of the President’s Cup for the past years, we have decided that the 2015 President’s Cup will be played starting with a round of 16. Instead of 3 qualifying matches, there will, however, be seven (7) qualifying matches (Monthly Medals matches of February – August). The 16 players with the lowest total of their best 3 net scores out of a maximum of 7 scores, will advance to the round of 16.
Round of 16 will take place on September 12, 2015; Quarter Finals on October 17, 2015 and the Semi-finals and Finals on November 14, 2015.
GOLFER OF THE MONTH
This year, we have re-introduced the Golfer of the Month award (GOM) which every month is bestowed upon the golfing member who in the opinion of the Match Committee [based on a set of criteria] has had the best golfing performance during the past month. The first Golfer of the Month (January) honor has been awarded to MIEKE KOREVAAR who won the Zingel Cup A-Flight, finished in second place in the Month Medal A-Flight and had a top ten finish in the Bogey match. CONGRATUALTIONS, MIEKE! For more info click the following link http://www.curacaogolf.com/golfer_of_month.htm.
MONTHLY MEDAL PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Last year we re-introduced the Montly Medal grouping by handicap format which takes players out of their usual comfortable “buddy” flight and instead places them in flights with players of their own handicap. Because of this special circumstance, we will give a special recognition to the player who will have performed the best during the Monthly Medal matches played over the course of this year. The announcement will take place after the final Monthly Medal match in December.
2015 GOVERNOR’S CUP
After a reviewing last year’s selection process and also taking into consideration the feedback from the different members, it has been decided that the 29 spots (Club President is guaranteed) on this year’s Governor’s Cup team will be determined by a number of different selection criteria. Some spots will be filled as a result of a qualifying process, some spots will be determined by EC point standing and others by a Captain’s selection. The exact details will be announced as soon as these have been determined.
