Handicap Allowances

Allow each of the other three players 100% of the difference. The calculation is done with full handicap, no reduction. The reduction is only for the stroke play qualifying. (See above)

How to Conduct the Event

In four-ball match play, two play their better ball against the better ball of two other players. All 4 players play their own ball on each hole. The lowest net score of the 2 players on each team is recorded as the team score for each hole. The team having the lowest net score on a hole wins that hole. The team winning the most holes during the round wins the match. The net score for a hole is determined by subtracting any strokes that the player receives (based on handicap) from the players actual score.

If there is still no winner, then the last hole is used.

The method to settle ties in matches is to play extra holes at sudden death. The first team to win a hole is the match winner. Handicaps are applied as if an entire round were being played.

The event is flighted and limited to 30 teams.

FORMAT
Each 9 hole course is played using a different format as follows.  Event Chair will determine which holes for each format:

Scramble: Both players hit a tee shot, pick the best one and both players hit the next shot from that point.  Repeat until the ball is in the hole.  Do not tap in putts before your partner has played, once the ball is in the hole, that is the score for the team. Both balls may be placed within one club length of the original spot through the green and within 6 inches when on the green, no nearer the hole and it cannot be moved out of a bunker or a hazard. Both shots must be played from the same cut of grass where the original ball lay.  Record the team gross score for each hole.  There are no restrictions on the number of shots used by each player.

Best Ball: 2 Man net best ball. Handicap allowance using 90% of course handicap (USGA handicap System Sec 9.4). Both players play the ball as it lies.  Both players’ gross scores should be recorded on the scorecard.

Alternate Shot (traditional): Prior to the start of this nine, each team must chose who will hit the tee shot on the even holes and who will hit the tee shot on the odd holes (yes, one player will hit an extra tee shot – include that in your strategy); play alternately after the tee shot. The ball used must also be used to hole out. No changing balls on the green. Always play the ball as it lies – no “preferred lies”, no “winter rules”.  Record the team gross scores on the scorecard.

Handicap Calculation:  Scramble – the handicap is 40% of lower handicap players 9-hole handicap + 10% of higher handicap players 9-hole handicap.  Take percentages, then add them together, then round up if result has a .5 or higher.  Round down if .4 or lower.   Best Ball – each player gets his strokes where they lie based on their 9-hole handicap for that nine (see calculation for 9 hole handicap).  Alternate Shot – the average of each players 9-hole handicap.  See Wed 9 Information Page for the 9-hole handicap calculation.

PACE OF PLAY – Since we are playing 27 holes it is imperative that you keep pace with the group ahead of you.

The day will be long enough; we do not need slow play. Consider this your first warning. Any group more than one hole behind will be penalized.

PAYOFF

If you choose the white tees your handicap for the round will be your white tee COURSE handicap for the course combination being played. If you choose other than white tees, use the following table to determine your handicap for the event.

FOR AN 18-HOLE EVENT:
If you choose to play the white tees that will be your handicap for the day.
If you choose to play the blue tees you will receive 2 ADDITIONAL strokes on your white tee hdcp.
If you choose to play the yellow tees you will receive 2 LESS strokes off your white tee hdcp.

FOR A 9-HOLE EVENT:
If you choose to play the white tees that will be your handicap for the day.
If you choose to play the blue tees you will receive 1 ADDITIONAL strokes.
If you choose to play the yellow tees you will receive 1 LESS strokes
If you choose to play the red tees you will receive 2 LESS strokes.

NOTE: If you choose RED tees, your score WILL NOT be posted for handicap purposes as Fox Hollow does not have a rating and slope for men from red tees.

Sign up for which tee you are playing in the pro shop before your round.

Event will be flighted by players Handicap Index but net scores within the flights will be determined by the above handicap calculation.

Please clearly indicate on the card which tee was used for each player.

At a minimum, score cards should contain:

  • All Players Full names
  • All Players Local Numbers (please look this up to double check it)
  • Individual gross hole scores for all players for all 18 holes
  • Tee box choice for each player
9/19 Giant Skins - $5 entry fee
  • $5.00 entry fee gets player in both gross and net.

A “Skins Game” involves matching a players score on each individual hole against all the other player’s scores on each individual hole. If a player has a score on a hole that is lower than any other player’s score in that hole then they have a “Skin”. The prize money is shared equally by each “Skin”.

Most weekly events have a “side” cash skins game. During the Giant Skins Game event there is no side skins and everyone is automatically in both gross and net. Often there is an additional entry fee for this event to supplement the prize money (thus the “Giant” term).

At a minimum, score cards should contain:

  • All Players Full names
  • All Players Local Handicap Numbers (please look this up to double check it)
  • Individual gross hole scores for all players for all holes
9/22 Fox Cup Championship

*Open to all Men’s Club Players who have qualified

The Fox Hollow Men’s Club Fox Cup Championship is an event for members who have qualified during the season. The qualifying requirements are based on a season-long points competition. Points are awarded for high finishes in events throughout the season.  The points allocation for each event is determined by the league chairmen. See the league schedule pages for details.

At the end of the season, the highest points winners in each league will qualify for this event. The number of qualifiers from each league is determined by taking a percentage based on the number of players in each league matched against the total players in the men’s club. If a player qualifies in more than one league, it just means they are qualified, no other compensations or player standings adjustments will be made.

Additionally, the winners of flights in the Combination Tournament and the Club Championship will earn a spot in this event.

A tee time sign up sheet will be posted on the club bulletin board following the final qualifying event. Sign up for your own tee time on the Men’s Club bulletin board no later than 1 week prior to this event.

On the day of the event, all Fox Cup Championship (FCC) Qualifiers will play 18 holes of stroke play. Approximately 15 players will qualify for the FCC Shootout which will take place immediately following the completion of all qualifying rounds (i.e. same day).

The event chairs will determine how many gross and how many net qualifiers move on to the shootout.

The Shootout is an elimination event. All players start out playing the first hole. The players with the highest score(s) on each hole will be eliminated. This continues until only one player is left – he will be the winner. The event will be net with strokes falling on the holes as if this were the front 9 of an 18 hole event. The number of players eliminated on the first hole depends on the number of qualifiers. After the first hole, 2 players per hole will be eliminated. If there are ties for the high score, elimination will be determined by a chip-off. In the chip-off, the player(s) farthest from the hole are eliminated.

Information about the time and location of the shootout will be given prior to the 18-hole qualifying round on the day of the event.

– This event is considered one of our “Major” events and the scores will be entered into the GHIN Handicapping system as a “T” (tournament) score.

9/29-30 Ryder Cup (New Event)
Fox Hollow’s own RYDER CUP!
Team Crow vs Team Fox
FORMAT
– First 24 men’s club players to sign up are IN – can be Saturday or Wednesday players.
– Entry fee and payouts to be determined.
– 18 holes on Saturday and Sunday morning.
– Each day with be 9 holes of two-man best ball match, and 9 hole individual match play

– 18 points available per day (6 for 2-man BB, 12 for individual match play).  36 points total.  18.5 points wins the Cup and the cash.
TEAM FORMATION
– 2 Captains will be chosen from the 24 entrants. (Anyone wishing to be a captain can volunteer OR we will pull 2 names from a hat).
– The 2 Captains will hold a draft during the Fox Cup Championship weekend at Fox Hollow to disperse the remaining 22 players onto the two teams, Team Crow and Team Fox.
– Draft order:  Crow, Fox, Fox, Crow, Fox, Crow, Fox, ..etc. Who goes first is determined by coin flip.
– Saturday pairings will also be decided by the team Captains as well at this time.
DETAIL FOR DETERMINGING SATURDAY PAIRINGS
– Coin flip for who goes first…  assume for this example Fox wins coin flip and decides to go first…
– Team Fox puts together their first 2 man tandem.  Then Team Crow chooses a 2 man tandem to go against Foxes team.  Now team Crow does the same thing, with Team Fox choosing their 2 man tandem to match up against them.  Continue doing this til all groups are full.
– That gives us the 4-person groups for the day.
– Next the captains will decide who plays each other for individual matches within each foursome.  Group 1 and 3: Team Crow gets to pick opponents.  Group 2 and 4:  Team Fox gets to pick opponents.
– After Saturday round is complete, the same method is done to determine Sunday pairings, except the team that is behind will win the initial coin flip and get to decide if they go 1st or 2nd.
