Details of League
The Wednesday 9 Hole League will consist of two or three man teams which will tee off between 3:15 PM and 5:30 PM on Wednesday. The 18 Hole League will also consist of two or three man teams with tee times alternating between 12:00 PM and 3:00 PM on Wednesday. The schedule of play will be posted and distributed at the April Men’s Club Mixer. You must play to the schedule. If you have any questions about either league please contact:
Scoring Rules for 2014
Matches will be based on a 10 point per match system for the 9 hole league and 20 points per match for the 18 hole league. Each league match will be worth 10 (9 hole league) or 20 (18 hole league) points. We will be playing a two man best ball system with the team having the better ball being awarded 1 point for each hole won. If the better ball on the hole is tied, the lowest score of each of the partners balls will break the tie. If the hole is still tied each team will earn ½ (.5) point for the hole. The team with the most points at the end of nine holes will earn a 1 point bonus or the 10th point for the 9 hole segment (or 9 hole match in the case of the 9 hole league). If the teams are tied at 4 ½ points each at the end of the 9 hole segment they would split the bonus point and finish with 5 points each for that 9 hole segment.
Since this is a better ball format, the second ball will only come into play if the two low balls from each team are tied for the hole. In this case, the lower of the two partners’ balls will determine the winner of the hole. Pace of play is and always will be a concern so once again, and this must be adhered to in order for it to work, pick up your ball and move on if you are out of the hole.
