The pairs consist of an adult lady and junior lady member of the same club.  The adult should be 25 years or over.  The junior must be under 18 on the first of January 2018.

The maximum CONGU Competition handicap for the adult is 24 and for the junior, 36.

Clubs may enter any number of pairs.

Each round is drawn as soon as possible after the completion of the previous round.  The first pair drawn plays at home.  The games are played to a completion.  Shots are given on the basis of half the difference between aggregate handicaps of each side.

The draw will be published on the website (  The Hunter Foursomes Organiser will notify all players of all rounds by email. The home players should contact their opponent as soon as possible to arrange a date for the match.  If no contact has been made after a few days, the away players should telephone their opponents with some dates.  It is a joint responsibility of both sides to arrange a date for the match.  The home pair should advise the Hunter Foursomes organiser of the arranged date.
