Do we have to pay visitor green fees? 

Golf clubs may offer courtesy and are often happy to do this because their members would mutually benefit from the same agreement when playing away, but some clubs will not permit this. If courtesy is not offered then we recommend the visitor fees being split by the pairs, if not, then the away team will need to pay the member guest fee to the club as per normal golf club policies.

How are matches arranged? 

All matches will be drawn home or away. As is the case with most golf club knockouts, the responsibility of arranging the match will fall on the home team, however, both pairs will be given the contact information to initiate contact.

Although, it will be the home team who will ultimately be booking the tee-times.
