Individual Chicago Points by Flight
NOTE: Guests welcome!
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 white tees. Handicaps will be based on the November 30 index report.
In the Chicago Points format, 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, of "clearing the hurdle” (better than 0 in the positive) 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. Subtract 39 from your course handicap; this sets your number.
During the round, positive points are added on this basis (Gross Scores):
• Bogeys are worth l point
• Pars are worth 2 points
• Birdies are worth 4 points
• Eagles are worth 8 points
• Double Eagles and Hole-in-Ones are worth 10 points
Not everyone will be able to clear their hurdle, so the highest point total – whether that is a positive or negative final total – 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 determined by a coin toss.
Member and Guest fees are $85, includes green fees, prize fund, and carts. The Closest to the Pin on all par-3 holes will be awarded. Optional scratch and handicap Skins games will be available in the A/B format at $20 each.
