The Rules of Golf as issued by the USGA govern play, along with Local Rules as applicable in the Club’s “Hard Card”. See below for additional Conditions of Competition. Violations are addressed by the Tournament Committee in cooperation with the Rules Committee.
This is a two-day, 36-hole, Non-Flighted Team Net Match Play tournament using 100% of Home Course Handicap, as of the date of tournament set up. The Tournament Committee uses Golf Genius to determine teams and pairings.
The field is divided into 4 equal groups by Handicap Index (HI): Group A, Group B, Group C, Group D. The groups are further divided into Team Spainhour (Red) and Team Verstraete (Blue), using nearest equal distribution of combined Handicap Index (HI).
Tees to be utilized will be set by the committee based on the number of participants and flights.
Saturday matches –
Red Team A/B vs. Blue Team A/B; and Red Team C/D, vs. Blue Team C/D.
With 100% CH applied, wheel off lowest CH in group. Team members may give advice to one another.
The front 9 is a 2-man scramble, worth 1 point for the winning team, or ½ point for a tie.
The back 9 is a 2-man best ball, worth 1 point for the winning team, or ½ point for a tie.
Sunday matches –
Red Team A vs. Blue Team A; Red Team B vs. Blue Team B.
Red Team C vs. Blue Team C; Red Team D vs. Blue Team D.

Each individual match is worth 2 points for the winner, 1 point for a tie. Total of 4 points up for grabs. Each team member plays his own ball.
The Team with the most cumulative points on Sunday wins. In the unlikely case of a tie, it is broken in a random draw scorecard playoff of Sunday’s matches. See Scorecard Playoff Procedure below.
All scores are posted by the Committee for USGA Handicap purposes, with applicable Adjusted Gross Score applied.
There are no Skins for this tournament; rather; instead the entry fee is higher to increase the winning team’s payout.

Scorecard Playoff Procedure
A non-stakeholder (Pro Shop staff/pro) selects a individual scorecard randomly from Sunday's round to determine the winning team from the selected individual match
(Red A vs Blue A, Red B vs Blue B, Red C vs Blue C, or Red D vs. Blue D).
If the selected game had a winner then that team is deemed to be the winning team.
If the selected game was a tie, then whatever team was the first team to go up over the other, starting with the first hole is deemed to be the winning team.
