Handicaps – All participants must have a CDGA Handicap to participate in weekly events, this shows that you have paid your dues and entered scores on a consistent basis. If you do not enter Association scores, they may be entered for you by the Golf Course Staff. Individuals playing without a handicap after July 1 will be placed in the “A” Flight for scoring purposes.
Format – The game changes each week – Players may move the ball up to a scorecard length to improve their lie until they reach the putting surface. Golfers may also lift, rake, and place in all bunkers.
Hole in One Fund – A player making a Hole In One during Wednesday Men’s League (within the 9 holes of that day’s play), will receive a prize of $200 in Shop Credit.
2 Man Better Ball
The two players on the team each play their own ball throughout the round. The low net score, or better ball, among the two on each hole is the team’s score for that hole. Player’s will receive 90% of their course handicap and teams are flighted by total team handicap.
You and your partner tee off, the best tee shot is selected and both will play their second shots from that spot. Teams will continue to select the best shot until the ball is holed recording only one per score per hole. A players receive 35% of their course handicap and B players receive 15% of their course handicap for the event.
2 Man Shamble
2-Man Team, select the best tee shot on each hole then BOTH players play their own ball from that position into the hole. Players will receive 60% of their handicap and teams will record all scores on the scorecard to make an 18 hole total.
Blind Draw Partners
Golfers will play their own ball and turn their scorecard into the pro shop upon finishing. Once all golfers have completed their round, staff will randomly pair players together and take the best net score on each hole to make a 9 hole total. Players will receive 90% of their course handicap and teams are flighted by total team handicap.
Fill Your Quota
Each player is given a point quota based on his course handicap. The objective is to be the player with the most points over your quota within your flight.
- Bogey: 1
- Par: 2
- Birdie: 4
- Eagle: 8
Each player will need at least one glow ball that can be purchased in the pro shop.
4 Player Teams – 18 Hole Scramble format starting at dark on the par 3 course.
No Alibi Tourney
Instead of deducting handicap at the end, players are allowed to replay the number of shots equaling 1/4 of their course handicap during the round. All golfers will be flighted by course handicap to level the playing field.
Your mission is simple: shoot par (or better!). With that in mind, look at the hole in front of you, and consider what tees you should play in order to get that par. Players will receive points based on their starting yardage and will be flighted by handicap.
Red, White & Blue
The Player decides which tees to use: 3 REDS 3 WHITES 3 BLUES
Golfers play their own ball and turn in their scorecard for a 9 hole total. Staff will flight players based on course handicap and will pay out the low score on each hole within the flight. If no skins are won, all players will receive back 80% of their entry fee ($4.00).
Players will receive points based on their net score each hole. The objective is to have the most points within your flight, players will receive 100% of their course handicap for the event.
- Net Double or Worse = 0 points
- Net Bogey = 1 point
- Net Par = 2 points
- Net Birdie = 3 points
- Net Eagle = 4 points
- Net Albatross = 5 points
Player receives 12 inches of string per handicap stroke (9 Holes)
Example – Player A has a 16 handicap. 9 Hole Handicap = 8. Player A receives 8 ft. of string.
The string can be used to move your ball anywhere on the golf course. Once used, the length used must be discarded and not used again. Using your string is not another shot, but a continuation of your previous shot.
A) You hit your 2nd shot on a Par 4 to two feet from the hole. Using 2 ft of string, the ball is moved in to the hole for an Eagle.
B) You hit a shot that rolls in to the edge of the pond. You locate your ball and use 3 ft of string to move the ball from it’s location in the water to dry land and avoid the penalty stroke.
Total Combined Score
Combine the total net scores of you and your partner to determine an 18 hole score. Players will receive 100% of their course handicap for the event.
