WEDNESDAY NIGHT BEEDLE’S 2-MAN SCRAMBLE
Scramble Format: Two or more players form a team, with the rules emphasizing fun without the pressure of players keeping individual scores. Each player hits a tee shot on each hole, but everyone plays from the spot of the best shot, until the ball is holed out.
Match Play Format: Teams play directly against their opponent on a hole by hole basis. It’s a great way to play because a team can have a bad hole without completely ruining their chances at winning the match.
Points Per Hole: Each team plays for a 1 point for each hole. Whoever wins the hole (i.e. whoever has the lowest score on a hole) wins the point for that hole. In a tie each team takes ½ point. The points won are totaled for the team for the week and are added to his season totals.
Points Per Match: The player’s net score is compared to his opponent’s net score, and whoever has the lowest net score wins the point for the match. One additional point will be awarded to the team with the most holes won. There are 11 points available for each weekly match.
Handicaps: Let’s face it, we’re not all scratch golfers. The basic formula is to take a rolling average of the player’s scores compared to par. We will take the last 3 scores to use in team handicap calculation. We will use 90% of the team handicap to prevent sandbagging. Typically strokes are not given on par 3 in Scramble format – we will vote on first night of league.
Score Keeping: Score cards will be prepared in advance by the Club each week. AFTER PLAY, CARDS MUST BE TURNED INTO THE PRO SHOP FOR RECORD KEEPING. Each team is responsible for tabulating their scores.
Substitutes, Cancellation, Rain Out: The league will not be canceled until 3:00 p.m. on the day of the match – league is only canceled when course is closed or lightening in area. Six holes constitute a complete match. Matches may be made up during the league week both teams must agree on a make-up date and play together, inform clubhouse of make-up date. Teams can also agree to cancel and split points. If one team no-shows, they will forfeit all points. Substitutes are allowed and will continue to use the rolling handicap.
PAR 3’S – Each night there will be one closest to the pin on the course and one other proximity game. We want to thank Beedle’s Bar and Grill for Sponsoring League and Proxy Games! No cost to enter this game.
Playoffs: After regular season, there will be a position event where the 1st place team plays the 2nd place team and so on. Positions are determined by the total team points since the first week of league, teams will be flighted. The top three teams in each flight will win a prize. Subs can be used in the playoffs IF they have played 1/3 of their rounds on that team. Season length is based on the number of teams.
Payouts: Go up or down depending on the number of golfers in this year’s league. Prize money payouts will be in the form of gift cards. Payouts for Season Point Totals will go to the top 3 teams. Playoffs will be flighted into groups with the top 3 teams being paid out in flight. Number of teams in flight will depend on number of teams in league.
$50 entry fee per person – $15 to banquet $15 to Season Point Totals $20 to Playoffs
If 24 teams payoff will be as follows:
$720 to Season Point Totals $240 to each Playoff Flight (3 Flights with 6 teams each)
1st Place Points 50% $360 1st in Flight 50% $120
2nd Place 30% $216 2nd in Flight 30% $72
3rd Place 20% $144 3rd in Flight 20% $48
- Winter rules will be used in the fairway and rough only: you can roll your ball to improve your lie, but no more than 1 club length, and no closer to the hole. IF YOU’RE BEHIND A TREE YOU MAY STILL ROLL THE BALL 1 CLUB LENGTH BUT THE TREE MUST STAY BETWEEN YOU AND THE HOLE.
- All other local and PGA rules will be observed.
- Out of bounds (indicated by white stakes) will be assessed a penalty of stroke and distance. (Example: if hitting off the tee and you go out of bounds, you would re-hit from the tee, and be laying 3, wherever your 2nd tee shot goes.) If thought to be out of bounds, always hit a provisional ball. If out of bounds, and a provisional ball was not hit, drop a ball in bounds and take a 2-stroke penalty, instead of returning to original place where ball was hit.
- The maximum score on a hole is double par +1 THIS KEEPS PLAY MOVING
- White tees for league play. Anyone the age of 60 and over may play from the Senior (Gold) Tees, however, they must do so all season long, due to handicapping purposes.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT 4-LADY BEST BALL
Best Ball 4-Lady Format: 4 players form a team, each player will keep individual score. The lowest score on the hole will be used as the team score for the hole.
Stableford Format: are stroke-play formats where the teams play the entire field. Points are awarded based on the best ball score and handicap.
Tee Times: Each team will have the same tee time each week. Sign up for a tee time that works for your team. We do not rotate teams or player. You will be with your team and tee time every week.
Points Per Hole/Match: Your final score is not your stroke total, but rather the total points you have earned for your scores on each individual hole. Bogie = 1 point, Par = 2 points, Birdie = 3 points, Eagle = 4 points.
Handicaps: Let’s face it, we’re not all scratch golfers. The beauty of golf is that different skill levels can compete against each other using a handicap. The basic formula is to take a rolling average of the player’s scores compared to par. We will take the last 3 team scores to use in team handicap calculation. We will use 90% of the team handicap.
Score Keeping: AFTER PLAY, CARDS MUST BE TURNED INTO THE PRO SHOP FOR RECORD KEEPING. Each team is responsible for tabulating their scores. Write each player name and score and on separate line write team score. Handicapping will be done by club.
Substitutes, Cancellation, Rain Out: The league will not be canceled until 3:00 p.m. on the day of the match – league is only canceled when course is closed or lightening in area. We will not make up rain days. Substitutes are allowed and will continue to use the rolling handicap.
Payouts: Go up or down depending on the number of golfers in this year’s league. Prize money payouts will be in the form of gift cards. Payouts for Season Point Totals will go to the top 5 teams. 1st 30%. 2nd 25%. 3rd 20%. 4th 15%. 5th 10%
