A modified Stableford points scoring system will be used for scoring. Each player will be required to accumulate a specific amount of points based on their handicap. The goal each week is to meet or exceed your target points. For example in Week 1 the number of points you are responsible for will be derived from 75 % of your handicap. For example, 75% of a 10 handicap is 8(rounded up). 36 -8 - 28 pts. Divide by 2 for a 9 holes - 14 pts. This person would be responsible for 14 points.
When keeping your score for the golf league we only need your POINTS on your score cards. EX: 1 2 4 6 X
WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING SCORE CARDS THAT HAVE YOUR SCORE ON THE CARDS.
Scoring: Bogey = 1 point
Par = 2 points
Birdie = 4 points
Eagle = 6 points
Double Eagle = 8 points
TARGET POINTS ADJUSTMENT
The number of points you are responsible for each week will be adjusted based on your previous week s performance.
If you fail to reach your point target you will subtract 1 point for the next week. For example, if your Week 1 target is 10 points and your total after 9 holes is less than 10, your point target for Week 2 will be 9 points. The lowest your target can get to is 4 points.
If you are plus 1 or 2 over your points target you will add 1 point to your target for the next week.
If you are plus 3 or 4 over your points target you will add 2 points to your target for the next week
If you are plus 5 or 6 over your points target you will add 3 points to your target for the next week
If you are plus 7 or 8 over you points target you will add 4 points to your target for the next week.
If you are plus 9 or 10 over your target points you will add 5 points to your target score for the next week.
All participants under the age of 60 must play from the BLUE TEES.
Anyone 60 or older can play from white tees
Ball may be moved one club length in your own fairway. All other USGA rules apply. If you are unsure of a rule please ask other players in your foursome.
NO GIMMES. Putt everything out!!!!! No MULLIGANS.
Pick up your ball if you can no longer score points on a hole!
The weekly skins pot will be split evenly between the total # of skins won each week. If no skins are awarded on a given week the money will carry over to the next week. If you were not present on the week the skins carried over then you must pay an extra $5 to get into the skins pot.
The top 12 players with the best overall total at the end of the season will be awarded gift certificates according to how they finish in the standing(ties will be combined and split)
The top 15 places each week will be paid in gift certificates from Golf Galaxy or Dick's Sporting Goods. Ties will be broken on the score card. A blind draw will determine which hole the playoff starts. After this is established we will proceed in order. The percentage of the pot each place receives is listed below. (The pot is determined by the number of players each week.)
Prizes will be awarded for closest to the pins on all the par 3 s longest putt on 9 and 18 each week.
We will have a $10,000.00 Hole in One prize on June 15th, July 20th, Aug 10th and Aug 24th.
