Mixed Competitions Committee.

At the beginning of each year a Mixed Competitions Committee (MCC) will be appointed by the GUI/ILGU committees. This sub-committee will consist of at least 3 ordinary members and they will have the authority to act as a Referee in all matters vis-à-vis mixed competitions. If a member of the MCC is not readily available the General Manager has the authority to act as Referee on their behalf. In either case the decision of the Referee is final and binding.

The current (2018) MCC are to be announced;

7)     The MCC will post a play-by date for each round of matches. All matches must be decided by the ‘play-by’ date. No extensions will be granted, except in extreme circumstances and with the authority of the MCC.
8)     Matches should be arranged as early as possible to avoid last minute, unforeseen difficulties and all players are equally responsible for ensuring the result is posted by the play-by date.
9)     Players may, if necessary to complete the match by the play-by date and only if both parties agree, play the match over 9 holes starting at the 1st tee. In this case the handicap differential and ‘shots’ given will be the same as if the match was played over the full 18 holes.
10)In the event of a match reaching no result after the stipulated holes and the competitors cannot agree on a tie breaking method, the match must be decided by a sudden-death play-off starting at the 1st hole. 
11)Results of ties should be posted, by the winner, on the published draw sheet.
12)If a match cannot be completed by the play-by date, then the MCC would expect that a concession should be afforded to the party(s) who offered most ‘play dates’ over the play-by period. If this cannot be agreed then a ‘coin-toss’ should decide the winner.
13)In the event of a result not being posted by the play-by date, the Competitions Committee will disqualify both parties. However the Committee can decide the tie in favour of one party if, by the play by date, they are aware of equitable reasons for doing so e.g.

a) Injury to one of the parties.

b) Non-availability of one of the parties over an extended period.
