All EGS events are scored as in a regular tournament. A player’s round is scored by another member of the flight he or she is playing in. The score cards are collected at the end of the round and given to the Handicap Secretary who works out who are the winners of the competition and what changes in handicap are necessary. The EGS plays the following competitions during the course of a season.
