Clubs are invited to compete for the Scratch Shield and/or the Handicap Shield, which are played for on the same day at a different club each year.
The Scratch Shield is for lady golfers with handicaps up to 20 and the Handicap Shield for those with handicaps between 21 and 36. The competition is a 18 hole qualifying medal and is played in teams of 3 with each score counting towards the overall team total.
In the Scratch competition the 3 gross scores are added together to get the team total and in the Handicap competition it is the net scores that are taken.
The winner of each trophy will be the team with the lowest gross or net score. The Shields are awarded on the day to the winning teams.
In addition to the team competition there are also individual trophies for the best gross and net score on the day.
The Ellis Trophy is awarded to the lady with the best gross score returned in the Scratch team competition.
The Vincent Trophy is awarded to the lady with the best net score returned in the Handicap team competition.
There are also voucher prizes for the best net score in the Scratch team competition and the best gross score in the Handicap team competition.
This year The Shield will take place at Cosby Golf Club on Thursday 16th May 2019. The poster and entry form can be found at the foot of this page.
