The GUI has decided to hold a number of Inter-Club competitions commencing in July. The Barton Shield, Metropolitan Cup, McDonnell Cup, All Ireland Fourball, and both Irish Mixed and O’Grady Cup will not be played in 2020.
St. Margaret’s will participate in the following competitions:
Junior Cup managed by Graham Maloney, 4+ handicaps.
Jimmy Bruen managed by Eoin Curran, 5-10 handicaps.
Pierce Purcell managed by David O’Rafferty, 11 to 14 handicaps.
Barton Cup managed by Eoin Curran, combined 14 handicaps.
The above competitions will now be played as match play on a home and away basis and as fourball; Jimmy Bruen played off scratch subject to the previous handicap requirements. The Barton Cup rules have not been outlined. We expect the draw to be advised on 29th June along with conditions of play, handicaps, etc.
The draws will be released on 29th June and first-round matches will be played within 3 weeks. Players will be required to play and practice possibly on a weekly basis in order to fulfill tight deadlines.
Please keep in contact with your managers and remember there is a lot of uncertainty in how we move forward when we can play matches, practice, and travel to other clubs.
