Competitors are not allowed to use buggies during the official practice and competition rounds, unless genuine medical reasons apply – this must be agreed in advance with Harry Lloyd (Event Director) and if suitable arrangements can be made we will endeavour to make them.
Caddies will be allocated to all competitors for the practice round (2nd July) and official competition rounds (3rd & 4th July) at no cost. Competitors will keep their same caddy for all three days of the competition. The tipping of your caddy is strongly advised. 10 Euros is recommended as a minimum.
Golfing World TV will be filming the event from the 1st – 6th July 2014. On arrival at the WCGC Event Desk all competitors/guests will be asked to sign a consent form agreeing that they are happy to be filmed during the week. If you have any problems with this then please let Harry Lloyd, Event Director know in advance.
Golf Club Hire
There are a very limited number of Hire Clubs available from La Reserva and it is highly recommended that you travel with your own set. If this is not possible then please notify Harry Lloyd, Event Director, who will assist in booking them for you. The cost of hiring a set is 40 Euros.
From a TV point of view, we ask that each team co-ordinate the same colour trousers for the competition days. Shorts or ¾ length trousers are NOT permitted during the competition rounds.
All competitors should be provided with Team Uniforms by their National Event for the World Final (with the WCGC National Logo, Road to Sotogrande Logo and local media partners/sponsors logos). These must be worn for TV purposes during the competition rounds and also for organised photo calls.
Competitors will not be allowed to use trolleys for the official competition rounds (3rd & 4th July). Guests, Sponsors and Licensees who are taking part in either the Guest Competition on the 2nd & 3rd July or the Corporate Cup Invitational on the 4th & 5th July will be allowed to use trolleys. Push trolleys will be provided, free of charge, from La Reserva, subject to availability.

Teams will play in reverse order on the final competition round, taking into consideration the first round scores. Lowest stableford points score will tee off first and so on. Tee Times for the final competition round will be displayed on the event notice board in the NH Almenara Hotel lobby on afternoon/evening of 3rd July.
The Guest Competition will be organised on the 2nd and 3rd July. This will be an Individual Stableford Points competition off Full Handicap.
