Please note: Conditions relating to recent decisions of delegates are presented in green.
Conditions or parts of conditions relating to events and competitions not yet finalised are presented in orange/brown
- In all competitions where participation and/or the award of trophies is related to age, the definition of a competitor’s age and eligibility is based on their age at midnight on 31st December in the year preceding the year of the competition. This conforms to the rules and practice adopted in many sports, including those applied by England Golf
- In accordance with EG policies, the use of buggies in county competitions is permitted for both players and caddies who currently hold a club certificate denoting a medical condition and have registered it with the CLCGA. Where a caddie holds such a certificate and the player does not, the player must walk in the normal way. It is the responsibility of the player to inform the competition organisers of their intention, so that formal authorisation can be given for buggy use in the stipulated competition. Such authorisation will not normally be withheld, but in circumstances where the availability of buggies is restricted or course conditions require limits to be set, the needs of players will take precedence over those of caddies.
