GROUPS AND TIMES

Halloween Shamble Tournament Rules

Play from the White Tees

Winter Rules are in Effect – this includes Local Rules pertaining to areas such as bunkers, leaves, plugged balls and others.

Pace of Play – 4hrs.

All other rules will be governed by RCGA.

Prizing is for First, Second and Third Place – Low Net and Gross. However, since you are also sort of working as a team, a $25 gift card will also be given to the other members of a group whose participant finishes either First Low Net or Low Gross, since those group members no doubt aided in that player achieving their scores. Double Dipping is permitted (ie – one group member wins Low Net and another wins Low Gross in the same group – the other members each receive a $25 gift card for each finisher – $50 total for non-winners and $25 each for each winner).

This is a Modified Shamble Tournament. This is an individual Net/Gross Tournament with a team component. Groups of Four must use a minimum Two Drives for each player. Groups of Three must use minimum Three drives for each player. After all tee off on a hole – select the best tee shot and all players proceed to the best tee shot selected. You then play your own ball in from there for the remainder of the hole. Record your own gross score for shots taken – including the one stroke for the tee shot selected. You must all agree on the same tee shot to be used – majority rules.

Handicaps have been adjusted as follows and adjusted based on current RCGA Handicaps. Those with 0-9 handicaps have been allotted 50% of their caps, 10-19 have been allotted 60% of their caps and 20+ have been allotted 70% of their caps. This is based on the premium drives each player will be enjoying throughout the round and the proximity of tee to green. Players were tiered into four groups based on average driving distance and handicaps. Foursomes were selected by a random number generator within each of the groupings. Those with only three players were given only players in the first three tiers to attempt to make it fair. However, they have to use one more required drive (9 vs 8).

The prize fee for this tournament is $20 for pay as you go players.
