Considerations:

Planning the number of players will mean some come and go on the same day if the competition runs through on a single day.

Remember that only 4 players and 2 running competition and marking (Total 6 people) are allowed at the green.

This is a variation of running a competition behind closed doors.

For the County records. Competition Risk Assessment to be completed and submitted to the County Safeguarding Officer,   prior to the competition being run.
