Innovative 1 Day Format
Monday is Golden Ball Challenge
A great day to come and play if you are playing just one day.
Each group will be given a Golden Ball that will be used toward the Team Competition. The Golden Ball MUST be played in rotation among participating players in the group (can be 2, 3 or 4 golfers- not all golfers in the group have to participate), during the course of normal play. The order of play of the Golden Ball will be determined by your team. Once a rotation is established for Golden Ball play please keep the Golden Ball in the same rotation of players throughout the round. (EG) Player 1 plays the Golden ball on hole 1, player 2 on hole 2, player 3 on hole 3, player 4 on hole for, player 1 on hole 5, player 2 for hole 6 and so on.
Please record the score for your Golden Ball in the space provided on your scorecard. The rotation must stay the same throughout the round, the player hitting the Golden Ball will mark down the number of strokes they made on the hole.
If the Golden Ball is lost, the team must record a 10 on that hole and all subsequent holes. If no team finishes the round with the Golden ball, the team that went the furthest into the round with the lowest golden ball score for that number of holes will be declared the winner. If multiple teams finish the tournament with the original Golden Ball then the lowest Golden ball score wins the team competition. If there is a tie score, the Commissioner will determine the tie-breaker and declare the winning team.
Full list of prizes are:
- Golden Ball Team Low Gross Score
- Lowest individual Gross
- Lowest individual Net (for those who have a handicap)
Please note that ALL three courses have a dress code. ALL PLAYERS must wear collared shirts, NO DENIM, and soft spike shoes only.
Rental Clubs are available. If you intend to rent clubs, please contact the golf courses 1-week in advance.
Maximize the days you play, maximize how you can win!
Three Day Tournament Scoring: Modified Stableford
Each player submits a USGA Handicap or Index (GII Committee has the final say regarding Hdcps). The handicap is subtracted from 36 and the difference becomes your quota for the first 18 holes. The goal is to accumulate points against your quota. After 18 holes each player provides the committee with their total points. If you exceed your quota you are + the number of points you exceeded the daily quota and if you are less than your quota you are – the number of points you were less your daily quota. This + or – goes towards your total score for the Championship. Your total score from your previous round becomes your new quota for the next round. If you play well you will have a higher quota for the next round and if you play poorly you will have a lower quota.
The player with the highest total score after the 4 rounds wins.
The committee will collect scores at the end of each round and provide the quota for the next round. All rulings by the committee are final and binding.
The scoring is as follows. Strokes taken in relation to par:
- +8 points Albatross (3 strokes under par)
- +6 points Eagle (2 strokes under par)
- +4 points Birdie (1 stroke under par)
- +2 points Par
- +1 point Bogey (1 stroke over par)
- No Penalty for double bogey or worse (please pick it up).
