Flights:

Initial pairings will be determined by the Tournament Committee based on random selection.

Format:

Season-long 2-man match play based on best-ball net score vs. the opposition.  Choose your own teammate.  The maximum handicap difference between team members is 10. Teams sign up on Foretees on a first come first-in basis.   Due to circumstances this year we will have 2, 25 team brackets. If you win your first match you move into the Winners’ Bracket and continue to play until you lose and you are out.  If you lose your first match, you move into the Consolation Bracket where you also play until you lose and you’re out. We can only have 8 teams move into the consolation round so we will have a playoff for the 8th position. The playoff will be between the 2 teams with the highest combined net score in their first round.  It will be your responsibility to play and determine the winner of each match no later than the end of each date indicated on the chart.  Results must be reported to the Pro Shop and will be posted on the Men’s Club website.

Food & Beverage:

Drinks, light snacks and prize presentations will follow the final matches on April 11.

All matches from White and Silver tees. If you start on the Silver, you must continue playing the Silver for the duration of the event. If you start on the White tee, you must continue playing the White for the duration of the event.  Per USGA guidelines, the lowest handicap player in each foursome will play to scratch.

If you win your first match you move into the winner’s bracket and continue to play until you lose and you are out.  If you lose your first match, you move into the consolation bracket where you play until you lose and you are out. (Only 8 teams in each bracket will move onto the consolation round).

 

There is a maximum 10 stroke handicap difference rule in effect for each team. Adjust higher handicapper down.  Your handicap index may go up or down but never above your November 30th number.

Teams should contact their opponents to schedule all matches – make your own tee times. The Proshop will allow for advanced tee times if made through them. You should pick up your official scorecards in the Pro Shop.  Please use only the scorecards from the Pro Shop to record all matches and turn in 1 completed scorecard (signed by both teams) to the Pro Shop at the conclusion of each match.  Please keep all 4 scores in the first round as we will need the loser’s score to determine the consolation round playoff. Do not post these match scores on GHIN.  In case of a dispute, play a second ball and check with the Pro Shop for a resolution.

Substitutes are allowed in the first 2 rounds only and only for verified medical or availability issues. Substitutes must be approved in advance by the Tournament Committee and must be:

      Members of the Men’s Club

      Not be a player from the same bracket unless already eliminated.

      No player can substitute more than twice and no more than once in a round.
