2023 Tournament Schedule
January 21st “Stableford” – This is a non-team INDIVIDUAL medal play tournament with Modified Stableford scoring. Instead of using strokes to deem a winner, each player will receive points based on their scores. The player with the most points is the winner. Albatross (+8); Eagle (+5); Birdie (+3); Par (+1); Bogey (-1); Others (-2). Scores will be posted.
February 18th “Daytona” – 2-person teams. Each player plays his/her own ball and then they combine the scores to make a double-digit score. For example: Player A scores a 4 and Player B a 5. The team score for the hole is 45. Individual scores will be posted.
March 18th “Razzle Dazzle” – 2-person teams – Holes 1-6 will be played Modified Alternate Shot; holes 7-12 will be played scramble; holes 13-18 will be better ball. In the modified alternate shot format, partners will alternate hitting the same ball on a hole, but both players rather than one will tee off. The player who hit the poorest shot off the tee will play the second shot, and the teams will continue to hit alternate shots until the end of the hole.
April 15th “2-Person Scramble” – 2-person teams. Each player will tee off and then each team will select the best shot and hit their second shots from the same place. They will continue to select the best shot and both players will hit from the same spot until their ball is holed. Standard USGA handicap rules will apply.
May 20th “3 Club” – Individual Medal Play. Standard golf will be played, but golfers are only allowed to use only three clubs and a putter to play their rounds. Scores will not be posted.
June 17th “2-Person Blind Better Ball” – 2-person teams. Each player plays his own ball on each shot. After the last group has teed off, the pro shop will draw partners randomly. Winners will be determined by scoring the best net score per hole of the partners. Putt everything out since individual scores will be posted by a board member.
July 15th “2-Person Shamble” – Each player will hit a tee shot, the team will select one of the drives and each player will hit THEIR OWN ball down from the selected drive (handicap format pending).
August 19th “Chapman” – 2-person teams. Both golfers on each team will hit their drives. Each will then play the OTHER’S ball for their second shots. The best of the second shots is then selected, and from there the two play alternate shot until holed.
Sept 16th & 17th “Club Championship” – Two Rounds. Individual Medal Play. Players may choose their own pairings. Gross (scratch) and net scoring will apply to all golfers. On the second day, leaders will be paired with others depending on their gross scores from round 1. The players (men’s and women’s) with the lowest (scratch) score for the two days will be declared the “Club Champions.” Season-long points will be based on the combined NET scoring for both days. Scores from both days will be posted by a board member. Players must have played in at least four previous events to be named club champion.
October 7th “Invitational, 4-person scramble” – 4-person teams. Members are invited to form their teams with other members and/or guests. Callaway scoring will be used since players without handicaps will be competing. No year-round points will be awarded for this event.
October 21st “2-Person Scramble” 2-person teams. Each player will tee off and then each team will select the best shot and hit their second shots from the same place. They will continue to select the best shot and both players will hit from the same spot until their balls are holed. Standard handicap rules will apply.
November 18th “Turkey Shootout” – Individual Medal Play. Turkeys, hams, or gift certificates will be given away for closest to the holes and prizes. Scores will be posted by a board member.
December 16th “2-Person Better Ball” – Each player plays his own ball and has his own score recorded. Standard 2-person USGA handicaps apply. Scores will be posted so all players should putt out on each hole.
Closest to the Hole
Just like last season, two random holes will be selected for each tournament. Each will be worth $20 to the winners.
Season Long Prizes
Also, just like last season, there will be season-long champions based upon points accumulated over each event of the year. Each individual event will include 12 points to the winner, 11 for second, and so on down to 1 point for 12th place. Two-man team events will yield 11 ½ points to each first-place winner, 9 ½ for second place and so on down to 1 ½ for the 6th place team. This way each tournament is worth a total of 78 points delegated to the top 12 finishers in each event. Handicaps (indexes) will apply in all tournaments.
