1) Members can now enter for SUMA competitions held at their own club. If however when the closing date is reached it is oversubscribed then the host club members will be balloted out first (partially or fully).
2) Just to clarify when we ballot out any entrants (host or none) it is done by date of entry ( Online or Office). So the earlier you enter each competition the better. If, after the draw has taken place teams withdraw then their place will be offered to the next in line from those balloted out. See note re REFUND below
3) See Rule 3 in R&R below.
From the 1st April 2021 ALL 7 SUMA competitions will be available for on-line entry.
Using the SUGC website, www.sugc.co.uk You can enter, select your preferred Tee-Time and pay on-line.
Note. Your actual start-time may be different and will be confirmed when the competition entry is closed and the draw finalised.
Entry for the competition will be by team (pair) and you will need a CDH number for both you and your playing partner. (This can be obtained from your club or competitions secretary).
Payment will be taken on-line at the same time via PayPal using your PayPal account if you have one or a Debit/Credit card.

For those without internet access SUMA members can still apply by post from 1st April 2021 and will have the same priority as those applying on line.
Enter as follows: -
a. By completing an entry form(s) and submitting it to the SUGC office. Note it MUST be accompanied with a cheque(s) for the appropriate amount.
b. On the day of the PRECEDING competition at the registration desk, (n.b. you will only be allowed to book for the next competition). Note: payment will only be allowed by CARD or CHEQUE.
* No CASH will be taken as payment.
1.) There is NO difference in priority between those booking on-line and those via post.
2.) We have removed the rule which prevented two teams from the same club playing together. When the initial draw is now made or revised it could be possible that all 4 players are from the same club.
3.) When entering on-line some Tee-Times will already be reserved for those still entering manually with an entry form.
Note, only when the competition entry is closed will the Start-times be confirmed, and the draw published. Your actual time may be different to the one you requested
4.) As well as our website we will be using email and SMS (text) to automatically inform you of start times (including last minute changes), competition information such as cancelled (in bad weather) and of course the final results. It is important that you supply us with this information when you enter. If you or a friend are not receiving emails please send name, email address & mobile number to firstname.lastname@example.org Your details will only be used to contact you.
If you withdraw from the competition ( up to 72 hours before) or if you are unsuccessful in being selected for a competition due to it being oversubscribed then your entry fee will either be credited back to your original card or your cheque destroyed after the competition has been finalised.
Note: The allocation of members to compete in each meeting will be decided by the SUGC. No member can be guaranteed to play in all the meetings whether entering on-line or manually.
