DIVISIONS AND SCORING:
Each week you'll be competing against another team in a match play contest. The winning team for each match will be eligible for weekly prizes, based on random selection. Staff will do their best to pair your team against comparable players for the first two weeks. The second and third weeks' pairings will be determined by flighting (see below).
Flights for league play will be determined after two weeks and will be based on the best score from the first two weeks. Where there is a tie in best score, the average of the two weeks will be used to break the tie.
The final week of Fall Rotating league will feature a head-to-head matchup between the first and second place teams in each flight. These teams will be determined by the total of their best two scores from weeks 1-3. Stated another way, we are throwing out each team’s worst score from weeks 1-3 in order to calculate final matchups (e.g. if you shot 35, 40, 35, your team would have a total of 70). Again, any ties will be broken using the average of the first three weeks. Please note: the championship matchup will be handicapped based on the average of each team’s best two scores for the first three weeks (e.g. if team one had a total of 70 (35 per nine) and team two had a total of 72 (36 per nine), team one would give team two 1 stroke in the final matchup). The winner of this head-to-head matchup will win their flight. The loser will finish in second.
Teams that don’t make it to the championship matchups will be paired against another team for the final week. Like the championship matchup, each team will be competing in a handicapped matchup, head-to-head, based on each team’s best two scores for the first three weeks. Four winners of these matchups will be randomly selected for payouts and prizes. This means every team has a chance at a payout, even through the last round.
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.
