How is the field determined?
The field will be the first paid 48 teams. Teams must consist of two people with a familial connection (parent/child, siblings, spouses, in-laws etc).
How are winner(s) determined?
Each flight will consist of six teams. Each team will play the other five teams in 9-hole matches. Win the hole you get 1 point, ties ½ point, lose the hole and get 0 points. The team with the most points at the completion of the five matches is the flight winner.
Do I have to have a USGA Index?
Anyone who does not have a USGA index will compete as a scratch golfer.
What indexes are used?
The tournament will use your October 1st, 2017 handicap revision. Players will receive 90% of their handicap. Matches will play off the low handicap. Example: If Chad (4-hcp) and Jake (6) are on a team, competing against Scott (3) and Brandon (9), Scott is the low handicapper. He will get a zero handicap, Chad will get 1, Jake 3 and Brandon 6.
Is there a maximum index allowed?
Yes – the maximum index will be 19.5 per player.
What do the winners receive?
Winners of the event will receive a payout in the form of Bandon Dunes Golf Resort gift cards.
Can I use a distance measuring device?
Yes – players can use a rangefinder or other distance measuring device as long as it does not calculate elevation yardages.
What happens in the event of a tie?
All ties will be broken by a scorecard playoff from the two team's head-to-head match using the USGA recommended procedure.
