2022 Wednesday 9-Hole League

Wednesday 9-Hole General League Information

Flights for events will be assigned as follows:
Flighted events will have 1 flight if the number of players or teams is 18 or less. 2 flights if the number of players or teams is 19-36. 3 flights if 37-54.  4 flights if 55 thru 72.  5 flights if 73 thru 90.  6 flights if above 90.  Progressive Skins will have 2 flights – net skins and gross skins.  Flight size may vary slightly due to handicap ties or an irregular number of players in a flight.  League chair may modify this to accommodate unusual circumstances. 

Money Payouts for Regular events as follows:
The league chair has determined the amount of money each event will pay out.  Regular event payouts will be in gift certificate money (chits) in the golf shop. The total payout for the event will be split evenly over each flight. Within the flights of events, the payout will be 50% for first, 30% for second and 20% for third except for Quota Points which will pay every player who EXCEEDS (not equals) their quota.  Match play events will award chit payouts to the winners of each regular round (excluding “play in” rounds).  The league chair may modify this to accommodate unusual circumstances.  

Fox Cup Championship (FCC) Qualification points
FCC points will be awarded at 50 points per flight for individual events, 100 points per flight for 2-man events and 200 points per flight for 4-man team events.  Within flights, the points will be awarded at 50% for first, 30% for second, and 20% for third except for Quota Points events which will award FCC points to all players who EXCEED (not equal) their quota. Match play events will award chit payouts to the winners of each regular round (excluding “play in” rounds).  The league chair may modify this to accommodate unusual circumstances.  

Progressive and Giants skins games: If they are an official event, FCC points will be awarded based on low net scores within flights and NOT on the number or amount of skins won.

Calculating your 9-Hole handicap
The USGA method for calculating a course handicap for a 9 hole event – and the method we use – is as follows:  Take your handicap index and multiply by the slope for the 9-hole course you are playing (see those slopes listed below).  Divide that number by 113 and divide that result by 2.  Round the result up if .5 or higher, round down if under .5.    If you’re handicap index is a 6.0 and you are playing the Front 9 from the white tees the calculation would be 6.0 x 125 = 750.  Divide by 113 = 6.6371.  Divide by 2 = 3.318.  So your handicap for the event would by 3.

Match Play Event Description (Changes for 2022 - Click Here)

EVENT DESCRIPTION
An individual match play tournament conducted throughout the season. The size of the bracket (number of players) will be determined by League Chairmen.

DATES OF COMPETITION
We are making a change for this season to move Match Play outside the normal Wednesday 9 events.  We will still offer an optional Match Play tournament, but it will require each match be scheduled and played by the opponents rather than occurring on designated Wednesday evenings.  The reason for this change is to align with the other leagues and avoid the significant cancellations and no-shows we had last season.  Many of us enjoy Match Play, and those committed to the event will still have an opportunity to compete.  Watch for sign up information once the season starts.

EVENT ENTRY FEES
This event requires an additional entry fee payable in the golf shop.

HANDICAP ALLOWANCES
Handicap allowance FOR THE MATCHES is calculated based on the USGA Handicap systems recommendation: “The higher-handicapped player receives the full difference in course handicap between the two players; the lower-handicapped player plays from scratch.”

HOW TO CONDUCT THE EVENT
Match play is conducted hole by hole. The player having the lowest net score on a hole wins that hole. The player 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.

SETTLING TIES
The method to settle ties in stroke play seeding is based on USGA Handicap recommendation: Match the last nine holes. If the players have the same score for the last nine holes, then use the last six holes, if still tied use the last three holes. 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 player to win a hole is the match winner. Handicaps are applied as if an entire round were being played. If extra holes cannot be played, then ask someone from the pro shop to administer a chip-off on the practice green.

The winning player is responsible for marking the bracket on the bulletin board and sending an email to mensclub@foxhollowgolf.net with the result.

    This event is just like the weekly skins except that each hole is worth a designated amount of money awarded to a player who wins the skin on the hole.  The value of the holes increases every 6 holes as the round progresses. If no one wins a skin on a hole, the value of it carries over the next hole and continues until a skin is won. If no skin is won on the last hole, the value of the hole will be awarded in one of two ways.  1) The league chair could split the value evenly among the players who scored the lowest on the hole OR 2) He could use a tie break among the players who scored the lowest on the last hole using those players previous hole scores to determine one winner.
