All players will be required to have a USGA/GHIN/World Handicap again this season. We will be using GHIN across the board in all of our leagues and other tournaments so every player has one handicap. This also travels with you and can be used worldwide, anywhere you play. The cost for this service is $32 this year. If you have already paid this for 2023, you're all set.
League Fees for the season will be collected at the start of the season and are due April 24.

This season's league format will alternate 3 weeks of Best Ball followed by a week of Scramble, then repeat through the season.
In a best ball format, each player on a team plays their ball from where it ends up (no "best shot" or picking up and moving the ball to another location). It can be viewed as each player playing a typical round of golf, with their own score for each hole. The team score for each hole is the lowest score by any one player. As an example, a team of 2 players score 4 and 5 on a hole. The team score for this hole would be a 4 because it was the lowest score. Best ball is played as stroke play with the total score added up at the end of the round for the team Gross score (actual score without handicap.) For the Net side of the competition, handicaps are applied.
In a scramble, each player hits their own shot from the tee. The team then chooses the best shot. Players whose shots were not selected, go pick up their ball and the entire team shoots their second shots from where this "best shot" came to rest, (typically) with the option of shooting from within a club length of this "best ball" spot (except on the green of course). You cannot, however, move from rough to fairway, or fringe to green. After the second shot, this process continues as many times as necessary until a ball is in the hole. The team score for each hole is how many "best shots" were needed by the team. Scramble is played as stroke play with the total score added up at the end of the round for the team Gross score (actual score without handicap.) For the Net side of the competition, handicaps are applied to the total team score using a mathematical compilation of handicaps so that all players will be able to compete.
