Some of the various competitions played at Morisset Golf Course include the following formats:
Single Stroke or Medal play is the simplest of all variations. The game requires all strokes to be counted and players are unable to pick up the ball without penalty. The score for the 18 holes is tallied and the handicap is deducted from that total. The lowest score wins, both for gross and nett.
Each player scores stableford points on a hole based on their handicap and the stroke index for the hole. During the round, each player and marker has to calculate the points allocated to each score on a hole based on the stroke index. A player on a handicap of 12 receives a shot on the 12 hardest holes, while a player on a 27 handicap receives 2 shots on 9 holes and 1 shot on 9 holes, based on the course index.
Two-Ball Best Ball
In a 2BBB stroke event, the better ball scores of partners, according to the stroke index and players stroke handicap, is recorded e.g., a player plays off 14 handicap and his stroke score on each hole is adjusted accordingly to the hole index, so that the player receives a stroke on holes indexed to 14. The gross score less a stroke is recorded.
Four-Ball Best Ball
The team version of a single stableford. The scoring is the same as the single event but only one player can score for each team on a hole. The score is the best result in the team. When the two partners score the same result then the score is marked for the player who holes out first. If a player cannot beat the partner’s score the ball is picked up to speed up play.
The stableford points only are tallied and the highest score wins. Only one player and one marker from each team need sign the card.
Each player plays a tee shot before choosing the ball to play. Each player then plays alternative stroke until holed out.
Similar to the Canadian foursomes on half combined handicap. after the tee shot, players play their partner’s ball, then select one ball to play alternately until holed.
Each player tees off. One ball chosen then each player plays within club length and continues until holed out. On the putting green within one putter head.
Junior Clinics DGS Junior Beginner Clinics are held here at Morisset Country Club on Fridays from 4-5pm during school terms. Cost is $8 per week or $60 for a term.
Each week the clinic will consist of either a lesson or playing on the course. During Lessons, both of our PGA Professionals are on hand to go through the basics with each child individually through the hour. Every second week the juniors go out in groups with parents and helpers to play a couple of holes.
Children from 7-17yrs are welcome.
We encourage juniors to bring clubs if they have their own, otherwise there will be clubs they can borrow.
Part of the etiquette of golf is abiding by the local dress code. At Morisset, this
includes collared shirts, enclosed shoes and dress shorts. (No track pants)
Golf in Schools
Golf is a rewarding sport and a great way to teach kids self-discipline, etiquette and new skills both on and off the course. Dave’s Golf Shop at Morisset Country Club provides juniors with support and tuition in a friendly atmosphere through junior clinics.
Our PGA credited Golf Professionals offer quality tutoring and teach everything from basic golf technique to rules and etiquette when playing on the course. This is a great way to keep kids entertained and get them outdoors to learn new skills.
