Golf Rules, Format & Scoring


  1. Golf Index / Handicaps

    1. Players must have a valid and verifiable USGA HCP Index to participate in golf and earn points. 

    2. You can still participate in golf tournament without a USGA HCP Index, but you will not be eligible to earn points or prizes and will be paired with another player who does not have a USGA HCP Index. 

    3. Tournament organizers reserve the right to reset an Index or Handicap if a participant Sandbags their handicap or another competitor formally challenges another competitors Index or Handicap. 

  2. Players are required to putt out their shots on every hole. 

  3. Opposing teams keep score for each other. 

  4. Play out of bounds as a lateral hazard.

  5. Play Winter Rules when applicable.

  6. With permission from other team, move your ball out of a footprint.

  7. With permission from other team, move your ball off a root.

  8. When playing Best Ball on Saturday, in order to speed up play, your partner can pick up if they are out of the hole and their partner has the score covered.  


Below are the two formats that will be utilized: 


SATURDAY FORMAT


"2-Person Best Ball" is a handicapped golf format for teams comprised of two golfers. Those two golfers play their own golf balls throughout and the lower net score (handicap adjusted) for the team will be posted per hole. Golfers get 75% of their course handicap. A team can score no higher than a net double bogey.


SUNDAY FORMAT


“2-Person Scramble” - 

  • Each golfer on the team hits a drive.

  • The results of the drives are compared. Which one is best? That ball is selected and marked, and the other golfers on the team pick up their golf balls and move them to that location.

  • The second strokes are played, and the process repeats: Select the best ball, move the other balls to that spot and play the third strokes.

  • And so on, until the ball is holed for one team score.

  • A team can score no higher than a net double bogey. 

  • Scramble Handicap will be calculated as follows:

    • First, both golfers on a team determine their course handicaps.

    • Then take 35-percent of Golfer A's course handicap; and add it to 15-percent of Golfer B's course handicap.

    • Where Golfer A is the lower-handicapped player on the team and Golfer B the higher-handicapped.

    • Let's do an example. Say Golfer A's handicap is 8 and Golfer B's is 21. Thirty-five percent of 8 is 2.8; 15 percent of 21 is 3.15. So add 2.8 and 3.15 to get 5.95, and this team's scramble handicap is 6 (round up or down to the nearest whole number).

  • When moving golf balls to the spot of the selected shot, the other golfers on the team can play from within one-club length of the original spot. But that one-club length cannot be closer to the hole, and it can't improve the lie of the original ball. That is, if the selected drive is in the first cut of rough, then the other members of the team cannot hit from the fairway even if the fairway is within one club-length. Likewise, you can't move a ball onto the putting green when the selected ball is in the fringe.

  • Order of play on every stroke is usually at the sole discretion of each scramble team. Just because Golfer X hit first off the tee doesn't mean Golfer X has to hit first on the second stroke, and so on. Likewise, your ball being selected as the best after a given stroke doesn't mean you have to hit first (or last) on the next stroke. It's up to the team to decide on order of play.



Tennis Tournament Format

Tennis will be a handicapped tournament open to men and women. 


Each player will compete in an abridged set, first to win 4 games, no-add scoring. Each game begins with a handicapped score determined by the gap in NTRP rating. For example, if a 5.0 player competes against a 4.0 player, the 5.0 player will start the game down Love to 30. At 3-3 in games,  one player will spin the racket and the winner of the spin decides to serve or receive for a final game, and the winner of the final game wins the match. 


When a man competes against a woman, the woman may elect to take an additional 15 point advantage. If the gap in rating is more than 3 points, the stronger player will begin at a negative score, for example 40 to minus 15. 

 

Here is a chart for reference where a male 5.0 player plays against a weaker male player and also against a weaker female player:
