DCGU Order of Merit 2018

(Open to all Cat 1 Players* in Durham County)

 

After a review of the County Order of Merit after the 2016 season, it was felt that by including County Matches and the Northern Counties County Championship in the list of qualifying events at which payers could pick up OOM points, it was unfair to the County's other players who did not have this opportunity.

 

Since 2017 the NEW Durham County Scratch Order of Merit has only consisted of Open 36 hole Scratch events and County Championships to make it fair to all. The leading player after the last qualifying event will win the County OOM Medal and a prize voucher.

 

The list of scratch open events which are included in the County OOM are listed below with dates for 2018 along with the points matrix showing how many points are on offer at each event.

 

Please note that the club scratch events are not run by the DCGU therefore any queries on entries or results should be directed towards the clubs and not the County Secretary.

* Some events are open to players with higher handicaps in which case those players are included in the OOM, but only for the events they are accepted entry in to.
