Golf Association: Individual Match Play (Season Long)

Start Date       Matches may Begin on Monday, April 18th
                                Round Deadlines are TBD and based on number of participants

Times              Players are responsible to set the date and time of each match.  If a match has not been played within the allotted time, a coin toss will determine the match winner.

Entry Fee        $30 per player / per division    (max of 2 divisions allowed per player)

Format
  • Match Play.  Handicaps will be played off of the lower ball in the match where applicable.  The higher handicapped player will receive the full difference in course handicap between the two players; the lower handicapped player will play from scratch.
  • Example:  If Player A is a 10 handicap and Player B is a 6 handicap, 10-6=4.  So, Player A’s Handicap for the match will be 4.  Therefore, Player A will receive 1 stroke on the 4 hardest holes.
  • Default Course:   There is a Default Course set up for each round of golf.  If players agree to play their match at a different course, that is fine.  But if the players cannot agree on another course, then they must play the match at the Default Course.
  • Default Number of Holes:   A match is to be played in an 18-hole match.  But if players agree to play a 9-hole match, or another set of holes for their match, that is fine.  Just as long as both players agree on the number of holes to be played.  If the match is tied at the completion of 18 holes, continue in a playoff, one hole at a time until someone wins the match.
  • You may play in more than one Division that you qualify for.
Brackets & Seeding
  • Each Division will play the same set of tees for all players playing in that division.
  • *New for 2022* - A player may enter up to 2 divisions for the Match Play Event, you select which ones to play in.  Participation points can only be given for playing in the event (a player does not get 2 times the participation points for playing in multiple divisions).  However, a player can earn points for each match won in multiple divisions.  No points if a player gets a bye in Round 1 of the match play bracket.

Default Handicapping:  The default handicapping method is to have handicaps played off of the lower ball in the match (as stated above).  However if both players agree to use the handicapping method to where both players get all their strokes, or any other method, that is fine.  But both players must agree prior to the match starting.

Default Handicaps For A Player To Use:  The default handicaps for a player to use is their GHIN Course Handicap.  Players Handicap Index gets updated daily during the active season.  But if both players do not agree, then you use the current GHIN Index for the player.  Depending on when the match is held, that is when you look at the players GHIN Index and convert to the Players Course Handicap (best way to figure this out is by using the GHIN App or website).
 
Default Course:  There is a default course set up for each round of golf.  If players agree to play their match at a different course, that is fine.  But if the players can not agree on another course, then they must play the match at the Default Course.
 
Default Number of Holes:  A match is to be played in an 18 hole match.  But if players agree to play a 9 hole match, or another set of holes for their match, that is fine.  Just as long as both players agree on the number of holes.
