Cheshire Order of Merit Format

Revised Format from 2012 Onwards

The new model reflects the following:

  • Strokeplay events - Cheshire County events and Club Open events.
  • Strokeplay events will be split into two categories, Principal and Other. Success in the former will attract a higher points weighting
  • Principal Events will be the Cheshire Strokeplay and Matchplay Championships 
  • The County Foursomes Championship will now be included as an “Other” Event
  • The existing specified Cheshire Club Events are retained but with a lower points weighting than Principal Events. Only Cheshire Events are included.  These Club Tournaments are as before and are identified on the Merit Events page

The Order of Merit is calculated on the current playing year. 

Total prize money will be £500. The winner will receive £250, second-place £150 and third £100.

The detail of the  points allocation for each Event is shown below.

The website will be updated as soon as possible after each Event.

Any queries on the format should be addressed to the Secretary.
