Entry Fee                    $25 per player / per division
  • Match Play.  Handicaps will be played off of the lower ball in the match where applicable.  So 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 a stroke on the 4 hardest holes for the 18 hole match.
  • You may play in more than one Division

If a player needs contact information, please ask

Players must report the winner of the match at the completion of the round to  

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 Index.  This gets updated on the 1st & 15th of each month during the active season.  A players index changes every 2 weeks.  The trend is a general idea of what the handicap will be changing to come time for either the 1st or 15th of the month.  As long as both players agree on the Index or Trend to use, that is fine.  But if both players do not agree, then you use the current GHIN Index for the player.  Each Round will have 1 - 2 revisions.  Depending on when the match is held, that is when you look at the players GHIN Index.
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.
