Tournament GGID = SVG1220



Tournament Limited to 44 Players 



Tournament Format: Chicago Points by Flight 

NOTE: This tournament will not be open to guests until Monday, December 7, space permitting.


This is an individual stroke play event by flight. Each player will play his own ball and will receive 95% of his Course Handicap. All competitors will play from the same set of tees tees within a flight to be selected by the tournament director. Handicaps will be based on the December 8th index report. 

In Chicago, players start with a negative amount of points, based on handicaps, then add positive points during the round. The idea is to get from the negative to the positive, clearing your “hurdle” (better than 0) by as much as possible.

Negative points begin at -39 for scratch golfers. A 1-handicapper starts with -38, a 2-handicapper with -37, and so on up to a 36-handicapper who starts with -3 points.

During the round, positive points are added on this basis:

• Double Bogeys or worse are 0 points

• Bogeys are worth l point
• Pars are worth 2 points
• Birdies are worth 4 points
• Eagles are worth 8 points

• Double Eagles or better, or any Hole-in-one is 10 points


Not everyone will be able to clear their hurdle, so the highest point total – whether that is 15 or minus-15 – wins.

Ties will be decided by matching scorecards (with handicaps) using the USGA "Back Nine" tie breaking system. If players are still tied, the winner will be decided by a coin toss. 

Member fees are $80, Guest fees are $95; includes green fees, *carts and prize fund. Prize fund payout will be 1:4. Closest to the Pin on all par-3 holes will be awarded. Optional scratch and handicap Skins will be $20 each.
