Lincoln, NE - Holmes Tuesday League
Home of the original Craft Beer Golf League. This is where it all started folks!
2017 Tuesday LEAGUE
9 Holes. Two-Man Scramble. Match Play.
All scoring will be approved by the Lincoln City Golf professionals and their staff.
MUST BE 21 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER.
18 weeks, April 25 through August 22, 2017.
Shotgun start at 5:30 p.m. every Tuesday. Exceptions: we will start at 5:00 p.m. on April 25 and May 2.
Divisions for league play will be determined after completion of the pre-season tournament. All players will play from the BLUE tees. If your team only has one player, that player may hit two shots from the tee and one shot from there on in. If your team uses a substitute, you will not receive strokes from an opponent, but will still be required to give strokes to an opponent with a higher scoring average. No substitutes will be allowed during playoff weeks (i.e., week 10 and week 18).
There will be four divisions with eight teams each for a total of 32 teams (assuming a full field). Divisions will be based on your two-week pre-season tournament score, and will be reset at the halfway point.
Points will be awarded as follows: 1 for a hole win, 0.5 for a hole tie, and 0 for a hole loss. 2 points will be awarded for the team with the low (net) match total. A team can win a maximum of 8 points per week. Results and standings will be posted on the website. Handicaps will be based on scoring averages with a maximum of 3 strokes given in each division. Example: If Team A has a scoring average of 37 and Team B has a scoring average of 42, Team A will give Team B 3 shots, not 5 shots.
$200 per golfer, backed by the CBGL guarantee (green fees and cart fees NOT INCLUDED).
The retail value of the items distributed during and after the league will exceed the fees collected. In this league, each golfer will receive one free featured draft beer each night, two catered league dinners, beer tasting and beer education. League members will also be eligible for numerous flag prizes, league winner prizes (including brewery tours for 8-10 with growler fills) and league payouts.
As a bonus from our sponsor, GolfStatus, all league members who use the GolfStatus app during this league will receive free entry into a season-ending GolfStatus 18-hole tournament ($100 value, includes green fee and cart, location and dates to be announced).
Each week, we will have featured craft beers on tap and in the beverage cart. Quality Brands will also be tasting beer from their portfolio of brewery clients.
Prizes and payouts will be awarded to the top three teams in each division. In the event of a tie, the payouts will be split. Top teams will also win a private brewery tour for 8-10 people (including growler fills) at one of the local breweries.
Each week, we will have at least two pin prizes (e.g., closest-to-the-pin and longest-putt prizes) sponsored by Moran's Liquor Works. These prizes will be rare or limited beers (e.g., bombers or growler fills).
Each week, we will have a rare beer raffle.
