Match Play Rules:

Entries: Entry will close at first 64 players, or May 2nd, whichever occurs first. If we are short players, there will be first round byes.

Pairings:All 64 players have been placed in 16 player brackets based on May 1 handicap index.  A blind draw within brackets was conducted May 2, 2020

Schedule of Play:
Opponents will have 3 weeks to play each round at a mutually agreeable time. It is encouraged to play early to avoid last minute schedule conflicts.

We encourage quick scheduling of your Round 1 match by May 17th. Those few members out of town due to Covid, will be extended a grace period.

Generally speaking, Gary Hicks has weekend times at 8am. Greg Dunn has times at 11am

Tees and Handicaps:
Use the GHIN app to determine current handicaps.  Players can play whichever tee they want, and DO NOT have to play the same tees.  The APP calculates the adjusted handicap, so no further adjustment is necessary.

Rules:
USGA Match Play rules will be used. We suggest you play the ball down unless conditions do not permit. Competitors need to agree before the round begins.

Special Covid rule: Until the rakes are returned, you can lift and place in the bunker, no closer to the hole.

Ties:
In the event there is a tie after 18 holes, there is a sudden death playoff starting on #1.  All strokes are applied where they fall.

Payouts: The final 8 players will be paid.
