WEEKLY EVENTS :

SANDTRAPPER GOLFSandtrapper golf is a modified version of Regular Golf and Shamble Golf.

  • Foursome:  All players tee off. Players then select their preferred drive and each player then plays his own ball from there into the hole and posts his score. (Note: a player may choose his own drive rather than the selected team drive). There are no rules stating that each player’s drive has to be used X number of times.
  • Threesome: These rules apply also to threesomes with the exception that in the threesome the players can alternate hitting an extra drive on each hole for the “Blind” player. 
  • The computer calculates the overall score for the "Blind" player.

MODIFIED SCRAMBLE – this format combines Regular Golf and Scramble Golf. 

  • The D player plays his own ball and records his score on holes numbered 1-3, the A, B, and C players play a standard Scramble and that score is assigned to each player.  The C player plays holes numbered 4 - 7; the B player plays holes numbered 8 -12; and the A player plays holes numbered 13-15.
  • Threesomes do not get extra shots.  The computer will calculate the scores for the absent play.

STRAIGHT SCRAMBLE -

  • This event is played once a season.  All players tee off and the best shot is chosen, players than hit the next shot  agoin chosing the best shot and continue this routine until the ball is holed.
  • There are no restrictions on the number of drives which must be used for each player.
  • ONE score per hole for each team.
  • In a threesome players can alternate hitting an extra shot on each hole for the “Blind” player.

 

HANDICAPS - We use 70 as par for all courses. Your handicap is 90% of the difference between your average score and 70. Handicaps are calculated on all rounds played with the exception of Peoria and Modified Scrambles.

ELIMINATE SLOW PLAY - To speed up play all players must take carts; and a MAXIMUM of eight (8) strokes are allowed on each hole

SPECIAL RULES pertaining to each week’s EVENT– Players will be notified of any special rules which may apply for the day, including which tees to use or other special requests by the golf course (like 90 degree cart rules, etc.).

A FEE OF $5, for prize money, is collected each week when you check in at the course. When a Rain-Out is declared, your prize money is carried over to your next outing.
WINNERS are announced after each event and prize money is distributed: 1st place pays out $12 per player; 2nd - $10 p/p, 3rd - $9 p/p, 4th - $8 p/p, etc. until the prize money has been paid out.  If teams tie for a spot (i.e. 3rd) the members of all teams tied for that position are awarded the designated amount for that position (i.e. $9.00 for 3rd place). 

Prize winnings are recorded and the money is awarded at the End of Season banquet.

RIDING GOLF CARTS - All players must use riding carts. The committee informs the golf course as to the number of carts we will need for each outing. 

WE WELCOME our new and old members to the PSGL 2017 Golf Season. Good health, good golfing, and please God, good weather!
