2018 Men's Thursday Night League
12 Team/Flight, Round Robin Match Play - In 2018, there will be an increase in the flight size to 12 teams. Each team will play each other once over the course of 11 weeks. The 12th week, depending on how you finish in your flight, there will be a playoff amongst your flight (1v2, 3v4, 5v6, etc.). The 13th week will be a playoff for flight winners to determine the overall champion. No other league play on the 13th week.
Match – 9 Hole Match Play, 1 point for winning the hole, ½ point for tying the hole, 0 points for losing the hole, maximum of 5 points for the match. Team that wins the match gets 1 extra point, ½ point for a tie. The 12th week there is unlimited points for the match. Current USGA Handicaps will be used each week. Strokes will be off the low ball in the group per the USGA recommendation for Fourball Match Play.
Flights – Flights will be sorted according to team combined index. We would like to sort flights according to the tee you normally play. When you sign up, please state the tee you would like to play (Blue, White, Green) and we will Flight accordingly.
Playoff - The playoff will be a March. First place teams from each flight will start on hole #1 and play a 2-Man, Alternate shot, with handicaps. Lowest score(s) moves on, one team will be eliminated on each hole until we determine a winner. If there is a tie for the highest score on the hole, there will be a chip off to determine which team(s) moves on.
Prizes – Prizes will be awarded to First, Second, Third and Fourth place teams in each flight along with First, Second and Third in the league playoffs.
Skins Game – There will be a weekly net skins game amongst your flight. $10 per team cash paid prior to teeing off. These are Team Skins; your partner cannot cancel a skin. Full handicaps will be used for skins.
Scores will be posted by the Professional Staff each week. Equitable Stroke control will be used for any holes not completed. Please mark with an X if you are out of the hole. If you use your partner’s score for that hole, Equitable Stroke Control will be used for your score for score posting purposes only. More information available on the USGA website for a better understanding of Equitable Stroke Control.
