RULES & SCORING:
- This is a 4-person unisex team event with a total of 18 holes played each day for 2 days for a total of 36 holes.
- It is a True Scramble format where all four players tee off and the best shot is chosen. All team players take their next shot from the same location until the ball is sunk in the hole.
- Gentlemen to play from the White Tees and Ladies from the Red Tees.
- Shots are marked and the ball placed within one club length (except for putts), no closer to the green and the ball must remain in the same cut of grass.
- Each competitor must have proof of a certified handicap. i.e. RCGA handicap card or GHIN number at the time of the event. Players must have an official 2022 handicap index with Golf Canada or the PGA of America (USGA). This must be current.
- Each player’s handicap on the 4-person team will be combined together to form a team handicap which will then determine which Division they will compete in. This event is not based on age or gender, simply by handicap.
- Golfers must select their own team members before entering a team in this event.
- Each 4-person team will have a team name to identify the team and team members are not required to be from the same agency.
- Each team member must hit at least 2 drives per 18 holes. The first shot on any par 3 hole may be counted as a “drive”.
- A provisional ball must be hit from same tee if all players’ drives are in jeopardy of either being a lost ball or out of bounds.
- Follow all local rules on scorecard and rule sheet
- Once on the green all team members must putt until the ball is holed.
- One scorecard is kept for the team and only one score is recorded per hole.
- Medals are awarded for the lowest Gross and Net Team scores. A team may not win a medal in both gross and net.
- The gross winners are determined first and removed from the list. The net winners are determined from the remaining scores.
- To calculate the team net score the total team handicap will be divided by 4 to give them a team handicap. That team handicap is subtracted from their Gross score to determine their Net score.
RESULTS PROCESSING AND POSTING:
Sport Manager, Venue Managers and Head Golf Professional will collect all scorecards immediately following competition each day. They will process all scorecards at the end of the second day of play to identify medal winners.
