Format

Scoring & Logistics

Each team has six (6) players. The five (5) lowest scores per round will be counted. Two team members per group will be paired together. Pairings for rounds two and three will be organized by score.

The best 54-hole score will determine the team champion. If there are ties for the team championship, they will be broken as follows:

  1. based on the sixth man score of the final round, and
  2. by the total of all six players for all rounds.

Individual champion will be determined by the best score. If there is a tie, we will hold a playoff to determine who wins the Blue Jacket.

Rules of Conduct

"In golf, customs of etiquette and decorum are just as important as rules governing play." It is appropriate for spectators to applaud successful strokes, but in order to secure the spirit of the game, we ask spectators to please adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Advice is any counsel or suggestion which could influence a player in determining his play, the choice of a club or the method of making a stroke. In addition, any conversation between player/spectator may be construed as advice. This includes any conversation between player/spectator in their native language. In either instance, penalty for breach of this rule is two strokes. Players are responsible for the actions of relatives and spectators in regards to this rule.
  2. Keeping the above statement in mind, please keep your conversation with the player to words of encouragement.
  3. Please turn off all cell phones.
  4. Spectators should stay on cart paths. In the absence of cart paths, we ask that spectators stay in the rough. Please stay off fairways, tees and greens.
Spectator Carts

Carts are available to spectators with a handicap placard for a charge of $30 per rider. All carts must remain on the cart paths at all times.
