The monthly medals for March to October inclusive are played on the first Monday or Sunday in each month. The remaining monthly medals are slotted into the fixtures card at various points in the calendar.
Any monthly medal marked on the fixture card with an asterisk* beside it will be played as STABLEFORD. All others will be MEDAL STROKE PLAY unless otherwise intimated.
A player who wins a medal in stroke play format will be the player with the lowest nett score. In the event of a tie, the winner will be decided on countback over the last 9 holes or 6 then 3 then last if still tied.
