Since 2016, entries for most Championships and Individual County events can be made online via this website in a bid to make it quicker and easier for the County's golfers.
The entrants list can be viewed for each event so golfers can check that their entry has been received.
For those who would still like to enter by post a form can be downloaded from the event page for each competition, which can be returned with a cheque.
Tee time preferences for County Championship R1, 3rd Division Competition and 4th Division Competition can be made when given the opportunity to add instructions with a Paypal payment or by emailing the County Secretary. All other events have a seeded draw therefore no preferences are accepted.
Below is a list of the events that this year will take online entries. All other DCGU team events (Club entry) and County Members Salver competitions (entry form in handbook) are still entered in the same way as in previous years.
County StrokePlay Championship
County MatchPlay Championship
County Seniors Championship
County Boys Championship
County Boys U16 Championship
County Boys U14 Championship
County Second Division Championship
County Third Division Competition
County Fourth Division Competition
The DCGU are using Paypal to collect the online entry payments which comes at no extra cost to the entrant. Entrants will not need a Paypal account to enter online and can pay easily with a debit card.
Please note that payments are required at the same time as entering online so have your card details handy. Competition entries made without completing the payment page are likely to be removed.
Once entered, entry fees for DCGU events will not be refunded unless a player withdraws before the draw has been made for that event or in exceptional circumstances which must be submitted in writing to the County Secretary for approval.
In the event of a golfer being balloted out of an event that he has entered, the DCGU will issue a refund via the same method of payment as made by the entrant.
All information that an entrant enters into the entry page is confidential and will NOT be passed on to a third party. Email addresses will only be used by the DCGU to communicate directly with golfers about the event they have entered or other DCGU related topics which may be of interest.
Please note that players need their 10 digit England Golf CDH Handicap ID to be able to enter online. If you have not got yours please ask your club secretary or register with England Golf's members scheme to see it online.
In County Championships and Divisional Competitions, players shall walk at all times unless permission is granted in advance by the County Executive Committee. Requests should be made to the County Secretary and be accompanied by a medical certificate or proof of need. If granted, buggies must be booked with the host club by the competitor. The DCGU has no responsibility to ensure that sufficient buggies are available to any competitor who needs to use one. Competitors who own their own buggy must seek permission from the host club in advance of the event and provide proof of adequate insurance should it be requested.
Buggies are permitted in social competitions such as County Members Salvers without permission, however the above conditions relating to booking buggies, owned buggies and insurance still apply.
If you have a problem entering online or have a query which is not answered above, please contact the County Secretary, Jonathan Ward on 0191 3740788 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
