Handicaps are recommended. Team handicap will be determined by 30% of the combined GHIN handicaps during Week 1. Teams without a single GHIN handicap play as scratch. Handicaps may be adjusted per week. There is a max team handicap of 9 in this 9 Hole League.
Keep in mind that you may place your golf ball within one club length of the selected location for the second shot, no closer to the hole. If the selected location is on the green, you may place your golf ball within 6 inches of the selected location, no closer to the hole.
We do have a special scoring rule in place for this league: DOUBLE BOGEY is your friend. The maximum score you can make on any hole is a DOUBLE BOGEY. So if you are putting for double bogey (or two over par) you may pick it up record double bogey on the scorecard and proceed to the next hole.
Gimmie’s: If your ball rests within 12 inches of the hole, pick it up, it is good. Yet, obviously, the gimme still costs a stroke.
TEAMS: Teams consist of two people, which includes the Team Captain. The Team Captain is the main contact whom we will call/email for matters concerning the La Liga. The Team Captain is responsible for finding substitutes. There is a limit of 3 substitutions per 8 week season. Substitutes must be named and their GHIN Handicap (if they have one) must be provided by the Sunday before La Liga.
Team Handicaps are subject to review after each week. We, the committee, have the right to adjust team handicaps each week of La Liga.
POINTS SYSTEM: For weekly placements teams will receive the following points: 1st-15 points, 2nd-12 pts., 3rd-10 pts., 4th-8 pts., 5th-6 pts., 6th-5 pts., 7th-4 pts., 8th-3 pts., 9th-2 pts., 10th-1pt.
Teams may receive pro shop gift certificates for their placement each Monday (Net Score) as well as for their position in the league standings (Total Points) when the league ends. Gift certificate value is dependent on how many players participate per week and per season.
Placements paid out per week are determined by if the last payout breaks even with the price per player. For example, the 3rd place payout must be worth $20 or more for that payout to exist. This is the “$20 rule.”
Thank you for competing in this season of La Liga.
