- Two-Player Best Ball & Scramble Games
Our Tuesday evening "Pot Game" is a fun, casual league open to anyone. Come every week, or just come when you can. No read to register in advance. You'll need a partner! You and your partner are free to play with another two-some of your choice or we'll pair you up. You don't need to register in advance for this league. Just show up when you want to play.
So called the "Pot Game" as each player throws $5 in the "pot" prize fund to cover the weekly game and skins. Green fees and riding cart are $19 when paid weekly or are offered at discount by purchasing a 5 Play Card.
All teams automatically compete in both Gross and Net competitions with winners determined by highest finish in either division with the weekly "pot" distributed accordingly.
Best Ball: Played the first three Tuesdays of every month
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 so that all players will be able to contribute.
Scramble: Played the last Tuesday of each month
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.
"Skins" are what a "skins game" is played for. Our skins game pits teams in a type of match play in which each individual hole score is matched against every other team in the competion. The lowest score on any given hole is said to win the "skin," and whatever that skin is worth. When there is a tie on a given hole, that hole does not have a skin. The fewer total skins, the greater the value of the each skin and the bigger the payoff. If there are no skins in a given week's play, the skins pot carries over to the next week.
