The Captain’s Challenge Cup

Sign Up Sheet Is OPEN

2022 Captain’s Challenge Cup :

This is a Ryder Cup Style Competition where teams are picked from the signup roster by the opposing co-captains. Captain and Pro team vs Vice-Captain and Pro team.   Strategy, partners and potential matchups are decided by each team.  

For the event you will be asked to wear a white or black shirt to identify with your team. White or black hats are optional as well.

This year it is open only to annual play members. Only players willing to commit to two days of golf rain or shine should sign up. This is a team event and a possible limited field, so all registrants participation is critical. The bottom line don’t sign up if you can’t commit.

 THURSDAY OR FRIDAY afternoon or early evening the day will be announced. Captains and Co-Captains meet in the members lounge  The team Captains pick teams from signed up participants. Anyone wishing to attend the team draw is welcome and encouraged to attend and participate.

After the teams are chosen. Teams discuss and choose their twosomes for Saturday. 

Pair matchups begin with a coin toss;  the winning co-captains put up their first twosome.  Opponents match the first group then put up the second twosome. Twosomes are alternatively matched and placed until all are paired. 

MATCH  PLAY  FORMATS

Winter Rules are in play for this event

One club length relief in fairway and 6 inches relief in the rough. You may rake and replace the ball in the bunkers. If your ball is in a drain trench or some other patchy bit, move the ball to cleaner spot and play from there.

SATURDAY

Front Nine   –  Team Modified Chapman        1 Point -Win, 1/2 Point –Tie

Both players tee off each hole. Both players hit their partners tee shot. Players then choose the best ball and proceed to play alternate shot until the hole is completed. Teams receive 20% of their combined handicap for nine holes (fractions of .5 and greater are rounded up).

Back Nine  –  Team Best Ball             1 Point -Win, 1/2 Point –Tie

The low player in each four man group plays off scratch, while others receive the difference in handicap strokes as they fall on the scorecard. (Use half of handicap for nine holes.)

After rounds on Saturday, Singles Matches for Sunday are selected using the same alternating process as for the pairs matches.

SUNDAY

Singles Matches   1 Point -Win, 1/2 Point –Tie

 Full Handicaps. Low player reduced to zero. High player gets strokes where they fall.

 Team with most points at end of competition wins.

Cheers Glenn
