The tournament is a handicap match play event spanning 3 consecutive weekends and, with the possible exception of the semi-finals, competitors must walk the course and comply with the Match Play Committee's nominated playing schedule.

All members are welcome to play socially on qualifying day even if you are unable to participate in the match play rounds.

PLAYING DATES & TIMES

The opening round will be held on Sunday, November 12 with a noon start and players must report to the starter 30 minutes beforehand with a schooner and their 1. $80 entry fee in hand.  Unless we have exactly 16 competitors, The Don Lane Invitational (a stroke event this year) will determine the 8 qualifiers seeded through to the first round of match play on Heckle Sunday, November 19.

The semi-final matches are set down for the following Friday afternoon, November 24, unless both players and President Love III (Ret.) agree to a change.  The tournament concludes with the Championship Match on Sunday, November 26.

The tee time for all Sundays (November 12, 19 and 26) is noon.

1. The entry fee will cover all tournament green fees

THE VENUE

The Royal & Ancient Marrickville Old Course will host the Match Play Championship for the 29th consecutive year.  This internationally renowned public course, featuring the toughest and most picturesque holes on the Cooks Peninsula, provides competitors with the ultimate golfing test.

PRIZEMONEY

Prizemoney will be based on playing numbers - $600 (400/200 split) for up to 20 starters and $750 (500/250) for 21 or more.

STRONG FIELD LIKELY

Magnolia Drive (formerly Wharf Road), entrance to the R&A Marrickville

The Match Play Committee has issued over 30 invitations to eligible players for the popular "home" event.

The defending champion, Muzzy Zoeller, headlines the expected international field of *Kipper Parnevik, TC Choi, Paulking Harrington, Seve Hemosteros, *Henney Stenson, JPY Hayes, Garry Mize, *Bourkie Baird, *Peard Fulke, Jose-Mumma Olazabal, *Grantief Goosen, *Kenny Crenshaw, *Soldier Montgomerie, *Bluey Dunk, *Dick Faldo, *Boo Boo Weekley, Java Haas, *Cavey Pavin, Karrie White, *Ford Funk, Hunter Meehan, *Edwardo Romero, Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson, *Davidson Love III, Ralphy McIlroy, *Tack Nicklaus, Trent Strange, Danny White Shark, *Notah Kelly III and *Tubby Waldorf competing for the prestigious Stephen Angry Anderson Trophy (*past champion).

DRINKS CART

The club's fully laden drinks cart for The Championship

Our fully laden vintage drinks cart (pictured right) will be dispensing free refreshments, including Edmund Resch's finest, throughout the tournament for players and spectators alike although the first Sunday may present a problem with no driver holding the club's mandatory Irresponsible Service of Alcohol certificate presently available.

SPECTATOR ACCESS TO THE COURSE

For spectators, a free park and ride bus service leaves Earlwood every 20 minutes from outside the Coles supermarket car park.  Sydney Ferries also operate a single jet cat service to the R&A from Circular Quay.  The Lady Fatcat departs Wharf 3 at 11.00am and arrives at the Man O' Golf steps, adjacent to the first tee, at 11.40am.  At low tide, the service terminates at Tempe's Golden Gate Bridge leaving passengers a leisurely 20 minute stroll to the course along the rejuvenated Cooks River foreshores.

HIGHLIGHTS

The Championship has delivered some of the club's most unforgettable moments including the 1990 Final when Tubby Waldorf and Big Jack Daley brought the large and boisterous gallery to it's knees as they witnessed both players carding seven over par 11s to halve the 17th hole.

In 1997 Dick Faldo was chasing his first major when he stepped onto the 11th tee, one up over the late Vijay Field.  His scudded 6-iron sent the ball careering into the ladies tee marker 10 metres ahead.  The marker - 4 inches tall, bright red, cylindrical and made of concrete - correctly applied Newton's Third Law (for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction).  On it's return journey, the ball neatly parted the assembled spectator mass standing behind Dick before it landed out of bounds in the Cooks River.  Both ball and Dick's title challenge sank simultaneously.
