September Challenge!

Over 30 players have signed up to play! You still have time to join the fun! Come out this week or weekend and get started! Play from the tees that you normally play.


Lakeview League players and substitutes may play in the September Challenge, a three event interleague game over three weeks.

The game:
Week of September 16:  2 person handicapped scramble*
Week of September 23:  2 person handicapped alternate shot**
Week of September 30:  2 person best ball*** (players use their ending handicap)

Play any time during the week; Tuesday and Thursday League players are encouraged to play at their usual time.

Entry fee:  $10 per player.  Players who participate in more than one league may enter a team for each league with additional entry fee.

Partners:  Choose as your teammate your regular season partner or any other league player or substitute from any of the three leagues.  You must play with same partner for each event (no subs).  Eligible players must have played or substituted in 2013.

Prize amounts and places:  Will be determined by the number of participants.

Handicap:  Scramble and alternate shot handicap is the sum both players’ handicaps divided by three with a maximum of nine. For example, Player A has a 7 handicap and player B has a 10 handicap: 10 + 7 = 17, then 17 divided by 3 = 5.67.  Team handicap is 5.67.

*Scramble:  Each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined, then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed.

**Alternate Shot:  Each player tees off on each hole. One of the players' tee shots is selected and the other player hits from that spot. Players alternate until the ball is holed. Handicap for team is calculated same as for the scramble.

***Best Ball:  Each player on the team plays their own ball throughout the round. Use individual handicap to determine net score for each player. The low score, or “best ball” serves as the team score. Pair up with another team in the Challenge for your third round.
