9 Hole League, Tee Times Starting at 10:00am
$20.00 per player, per week
2 Person Teams
FORMAT: Two Person Best Ball. This means each player plays their own golf ball for the entire hole. The TEAM SCORE is determined by the “Best Ball” in the group, the lowest score on a hole by one of the players.
TEES: Participants will tee off within & behind the designated orange flags on each hole.
MARK, CLEAN, & PLACE: Keep in mind that you may mark, clean, and place your golf ball within 6 inches of the golf ball location, no closer to the hole. If the location is on the green, you may place your golf ball within 6 inches of the golf ball location, no closer to the hole. Under all circumstances, the condition of the ball must stay the same. For example, a ball in the rough must stay in the rough, a ball in the hazard must stay in the hazard.
We do have a special scoring rule in place for this league: TRIPLE BOGEY is your friend. The maximum score you can make on any hole is a triple bogey. So if you are putting for triple bogey (or three over par) you may pick it up record, a triple bogey on the scorecard and proceed to the next hole.
Player Handicaps will be assigned after Week 1 and are subject to review after each week. We, the committee, have the right to adjust player handicaps each week of Sonoma Junior Series.
