league begins on the Wednesday April 25 and continues for 18 weeks. The 18
weeks consist of 8 first half matches, 1 fun night (6/20), 8 second half
matches and 1 playoff night (8/29).
No play on July 4th
- League starting
times are from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. Make sure to check in with the front desk
before the round so they can mark your name off the list as to who is
playing and who has paid green fees.
Subs need to check in and announce who they are playing for.
- If you can't make
it for a week, please give your best effort to find a sub. We have a list
of subs, or you can get a friend to play. If you’re unable to find a sub,
please contact the league secretary and a ghost sub will be assigned. The
Ghost Sub’s score will be the average score of the flight that you play in
for that night. Your opponent will play against this average. However, the
maximum points that you can score for your team with the use of a Ghost
Sub will be capped at 0 points. (a little incentive to find a real sub).
- Groups must play
as foursomes. This is to prevent players from being stranded as a twosome.
This rule is in effect even if you are playing against a Ghost Sub.
Examples of allowed foursomes: 3
players & a Ghost (Total 4) or 2 players & 2 Ghosts (Total 4).
Example of not allowed foursome: 2
players & 2 players vs. 2 Ghosts (Total 6)
- For starting
order, place a ball in the rack on #1 tee only when you have a four-some
at the course and ready to play.
- Each team will
have 4 players. Each team’s players will be flighted A, B, C or D. The
lowest handicapped player will be the 'A', next lowest ‘B’ and so on. This
will be revised once during the season after the 8th week of
play based on the updated stroke averages.
- Matches are played
A-A, B-B, C-C, D-D and we play each team at least one time. We play match
points based on your net score (actual score less strokes if you get them
on a hole). Each hole is worth 2 points. If you tie a hole with your match
opponent, you each get a 1 point. With each match, winning the low net
total will earn you 2 extra points. Therefore, there are 20 points
available for each match.
- The first half
winning team will face the second half winning team in a final night
playoff to determine the league champions.
- Year end prizes
will be awarded for individual low gross average, individual low net
average, individual high point average, individual high points total, 1st
half winning team, 2nd half winning team and league champions.
To be eligible for individual awards, you must play in 13 of the 16
- Handicaps are
determined using the USGA format (96%) including Equitable Stroke Control.
- Handicaps will be
based on the 4 best scores of the previous 5 rounds. If 5 rounds are not
available, a handicap will be calculated by using the rounds played so
far. The maximum 9 hole league handicap is 20.
- If a player
doesn't have a handicap, one will be established based on that night's
score. For new subs, only 80% of the first round handicap will be used.
- Subs in the year
end playoff must have a handicap that is not more than 2 strokes lower
than the player they’re subbing for.
- Gold Tee Program
is in effect. Age 65 or older. Handicap of 13 or higher.
