Formby Ladies will again be holding the 36 hole Ladies Open Leveret Trophy early in the season on Saturday, 1st April 2017. For the past 10 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.
From 2017 leading women golfers from England will have an even greater incentive to play in the Leveret. England Golf intends to help its top players improve their positions on the World Amateur Golf Ranking by combining 10 of England's 36 hole events into five new 72 hole competitions. At present 36 hole competitions don't qualify for WAGR points, but the five new combined 72 hole competitions will.
The Leveret will combine with the Comboy Scratch Cup, which is at Delamere Forest on 26th March. Both events will be run separately with their own prizes, but the combined totals will qualify for a new 72 hole event to be known as the Comboy Leveret for the purposes of WAGR points. To find out more about this initiative, go to the England Golf website, and to find out more about the World Amateur Golf Ranking click here.
There is no official prize giving, which enables those travelling long distances to better plan their schedules.
All correspondence will be conducted via e-mail.

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.”
