The Rushcliffe Order of Merit: Introduction

The Rushcliffe Order of Merit is a season-long competition similar in style to those held on the professional golf tours - it is run in parallel with a number of the Club’s existing competitions. Entry into The Rushcliffe Order of Merit is automatic & FREE!

Throughout the season Order of Merit updates will be posted on The Rushcliffe Order of Merit noticeboard in the Clubhouse & on the Club’s website, & coverage will be provided in the Club’s newsletter.

For the 2019 Order of Merit season:

  • along with more positional points available for each Event, the Points Scheme has also been simplified;
  • the last two season-ending Events will be played as Runoff Events rather than there being a standalone Playoff; &
  • the top-6 players in the Order of Merit will compete in a Final to be played at Kedleston Park Golf Club, Derbyshire on Sunday 6th October 2019.

A host venue for Regional Qualifying for The Open from 2018, Kedleston Park is regarded by many as one of the finest golf courses in Derbyshire.
