Weekly Team Standings

Cost

$80 per player

Start Date

May 10th (Fun Team Day/Dinner/Meeting). 11 Weeks of Competition (May 17th-Aug. 2nd with extra rain date built in). August 9th final league night, dinner, and awards.

Teams

Teams range from 4 to 6 players with only 4 players actually competing for points each week. Having extra players allows people to have weeks off for conflicts in schedules.

Format of Play

Each week, four (4) individual matches will be played between two (2) teams. You will be playing against one member of the opposing team with each individual match worth 2 points, (one point for the winner of match play and one point for low net).

It is important that each player finishes out every hole or mark a box 8 on their scorecard for any hole that was not finished. Each hole counts for match play and your total score for a 9-hole low-net score.

Scoring

Every player in the league will have a league handicap. This will determine who shall receive strokes during the matches each week. Each scorecard will be prepared prior to play indicating the holes where strokes are to be given. While keeping score, if you “get” a stroke on a hole you are to write both your scores down, i.e. 7/6 and as such, your final score at the end, i.e. 41/36. If you win a hole in match play circle the score. This assists in assigning accurate points to the appropriate teams.

Divisions

We will have two randomly drawn divisions. Division rankings will determine head-to-head play for the league championship.

Continuing changes from last year

  1. New league-only handicap. These handicaps will adjust faster than the last two years taking a smaller grouping of scores. This will be explained at the meeting, first night of league.
  2. New playoff system. Every team plays for seeding in their division at the end of division play team ranking will determine which playoff bracket teams will move into. This will also be explained at first league night meeting.

These changes were made based off the surveys that we received at the end of the 2014 season and in an effort to make this the best league year ever!

Tie Breakers

  1. Head-to-Head Matchup (Who won the match).
  2. Team with most wins.
  3. Putt off. Each team picks two players for sudden death putt off.
