TURF 2022 Competition

September 2022

The Turf Ultimate Region Fight is an annual multi-region Turf competition. Scotland came 2nd last year and have entered again - we're now calling for keen turfers to join the Scotland team. We’ll be competing with 12 other teams from Sweden, Finland, and Minnesota.

The competition will start on Sunday 4 September, at the start of the new Turf round, and finishes 4 weeks later, on Sunday 1 October.

The rules will be similar to last year’s competition, and are explained on Turfportalen. There’ll be 3 separate scoring categories: turf points, number of takes, and number of round unique zones (i.e. zones that you haven’t already visited in the September round). For each of these 3 disciplines, the scores will be calculated from the average of the top 75% of the team on a week-by-week basis, and also for the whole month.

See this article on the ESOC website for more about last year's competition. 

Several ESOC members have already signed up for the 2022 Scotland team, but we need more competitors, and it’s open to any Scottish turfers. If you would like to join the team, please email:
