Formby Ladies will again be holding the 36 hole Ladies Open Leveret Trophy early in the season on Saturday, 21st April 2018. For the past several years The Leveret has presented a good opening test to the domestic season and we aim to present a course that is fair but challenging.
Leading women golfers from England have an even greater incentive to play in the Leveret as from 2017 England Golf combined 10 of England's 36 hole events into five new 72 hole competitions, with the intention of helping its top players improve their positions on the World Amateur Golf Ranking. Prior to this amalgamation of events these 36 hole competitions didn't qualify for WAGR points, but the five new combined 72 hole competitions do.
The Leveret is combined with the Comboy Scratch Cup, which is held at Delamere Forest. Both events are run separately with their own prizes, but the combined totals qualify for the 72 hole event known as the Comboy Leveret for the purposes of WAGR points.

There is no official prize giving, which enables those travelling long distances to better plan their schedules.

Use of Distance Measuring Devices in Competitions
A player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. However, if, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect her play (e.g., gradient, wind-speed, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional functions are actually used.
Accidental Movement of a Ball on a Putting Green
Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1 are modified as follows:
When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment.
The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.
This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.
Note: If it is determined that a player’s ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location. A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.”
