Rules and Regulations

 

 

2017 Westchester Junior Interclub 

Rules and Regulations

Team:

A team of six players will represent each club. A club must have a minimum of 3 players to have an official match. If a team is not complete, players must move up to fill the top positions. 
A club arriving at the match with less than a full team of 6 players will play individual matches starting at the number 1 position, forfeiting those matches for which they have no players. Therefore, a club showing up with only 4 players will field teams at positions 1 thru 4 and forfeit positions 5 and 6. However, the club will only move the players up if they are certain that said individual is not showing up. If they are unsure and the team member is late for their tee time, see Time of Play for proper procedure.
A club failing to show up more than once without notice will be eliminated from the interclub roster and all matches will be void.The schedule will show the number of alternates allowed at each club.If your club would like to have more alternates, please contact the host club to see if can be arranged. When your club is low of alternates, let the host club know so they can make room for others to play.

Eligibility & Age Limit

There is no minimum age limit, but anyone who has attended college or is over the age of 18 at the time of the division finals will be ineligible to play. No player belonging to more than one club or a club fielding teams is allowed to play for both teams 

(i.e. 1 club, team).

Time of play:

The participants should arrive a ½ hour before theindividuals scheduledtee time or the time of the shotgun. In the event a team member is running late, the match will begin and the opponent will win any holes played prior to the arrival of the late team member.  In the event of unusual circumstances, the coordinating club will determine if an alternate solution is necessary. 

Weather:

In the event of inclement weather, the host club will decideon a course of action prior to the match and will contact a coordinating club representative. The host club representative will use email or phone to inform other teams of the weather situation and the possible cancellation of the matches. In the event of inclement weather during the round, matches that have not completed 9 holes will be cancelled and teams will divide the points equally. However, if the match has completed 9 holes (both team andindividual matches)thenany holes not played will be halved and points distributed accordinglyAny cancelled matches will not be rescheduled.

Rescheduling:

If a host club cancels,for any reason other than weather, the match will have to be rescheduled at the host club or a neutral club. If all efforts to reschedule the match are made and the club cannot reschedule, that club loses all the points for that day.  All other teams will get 13 1/2 points for that day.However, if the forfeited points determine a champion, there will be a meeting of the other clubs in the division to decide if points should be eliminated from everyone’s record so as not to skew the championship.

Team Roster

Please email or fax your team roster to the host club the day before the match date.   The host club will only use the roster order sent by the participating clubs and changes may be made only by that club’s representative or professional, not by the players themselves.

Tee area:

All girls will play from the women’s tees. All boys will play from 6100-6400 yards

During the Division Finals, the yardage for boys should measure closer to the top range of the recommended yardage. Please inform your course superintendent of the match date so they can properly set up the course for play.

Matches:

Positions one and two will tee off in the first foursome, followed by positions three and four, then five and six. All alternates will tee off last. 

Each player plays their respective opponent for 1 point for the front nine, 1 point for the back nine and 1 point for the overall match. 

There will also be a Four – Ball Match for each group. 1 point will be awarded for the front nine, 1 point for the back nine and 1 point for the overall match.

Therefore, there are 9 possible points for each foursome.

All matches that are halved are a ½ point. The total points that can be won are 27. The host club is responsible for scoring and e-mailing the results to the coordinating club.Keith Melnik will be the Host Professional from Leewood. Please email results tokmelnik@pga.comas soon as the matches are completed.

On Course Contests:

Each host Club is responsible for conducting 2 closest to the pin contests. We suggest putting them on the first two par three holes so awards can be given to the winners that day. Each prize should not exceed a $25 retail value.

Division Championship:

The format for the division finals will be as follows: Total aggregate score from the five of the six players on the team. In case of a tie for the overall champion, there will be a sudden death playoff. The sudden death playoff will be determined by total aggregate score of five of six players on the first sudden death playoff hole. The playoff hole can be determined by the Host Club. A designated award should also recognize the runner up of this match since they are also division champions.

Pro Junior:

Scramble Format

One Professional and three Junior golfers that participated in the Interclub, form a team.

Each Club may bring multiple teams.

Entry fee of$150 per team made payable to the host Professional.

The host Professional is responsible for coordinating lunch and prizes for the event.

Tie-Breakers:

If, at the end of the scheduled matches, two teams have the same number of points, the winner will be determined by the head to head record of the two teams. If the two teams tie their match, then the result of the match against the third place team will determine the winner. If there is still a tie,the fourth place team and so on will determine the tie breaker.

Sportsmanship:

All matches should be played over the full 18 holes regardless of the outcome.  The host professional or his designated representative may disqualify any player for breach of club, league or USGA rules.  All such incidents will be reported to the coordinating club.  

Dress Code:

Shorts:Bermuda Style shorts (no higher than 2 inches above the knee).  NO cargo shorts or shorts with excessive pocketing are allowed. 

Pants:No denim or designer jeans are allowed.  NO cargo pants of any color will be allowed. 

Shirts:All shirts must have collars.  Tank tops, undershirts, concert t-shirts, bare tops, halter tops, tube tops, etc. are not allowed.  All shirts must be tucked in. 

Hats:If a participant chooses to wear a hat, it must be a hat representing the club that he or she is playing for.  Hats must be worn forward at all times.  

Breach of these rules may result in disqualification of the individual player for the match. 

Incomplete Matches:

In the event a match is not completed, except in the case of bad weather, the coordinating club in consultation with the host club has the option to decide the result of the match.  This is to ensure that no team is able to gain an advantage from the results of incomplete matches.

In the case of illness, the point should be awarded to whoever is winning the match at the time the playerbecomes ill.  The team match will continue with the remaining team player.  

Carts:

Walking is mandatory.  In the case of medical necessity, a doctor’s certificate, along with a valid driver’s license, is required and must be submitted to the host professional for the use of a cart. This ruling may not override any cart rules in force at the host club.   

Rules and Scoring:

At all times, USGA rules will govern play.  It is required that each player has a copy of the latest rules book with him or her.  The host club is responsible for having score sheets and recordingthe match results.  It will be the responsibility of each club to teach their own interclub players how to score the matches.  

Host Club Responsibilities:

Besides the score sheets as mentioned above, the host club is responsible for having an adult present at all times during the matches. A professional need to be available at all times to monitor the matches and be available to give rulings.

If possible, it is best to have a small committee of 3 or 4 to help with scoring and feeding of the players at the end of matches.The host club is responsible for providing refreshments for the players.  It is suggested that soda be available at the turn, and that lunch in the form of hot dogs or hamburgers with soda and chips, be available at the end of the match.  

The host pro may end any match in play. Where tee times are used,if possible both the first and tenth tees should be used to send teams off.  

Coordinator of the Interclub:

The duties of the coordinator will be to call a meeting in the fall (or in the spring when the clubs have their schedules ready for the current season) to review the rules and procedures, discuss changes, and plan schedules for the upcoming Interclub season.  The coordinator will hold the job for one year only, and must be a representative from one of the member clubs.  The order in which the club will be responsible for coordinating the yearly program, hosting the division finals, and Pro-Junior is as follows:

2017 Westchester Junior Interclub

Rules and Regulations

 

 

Stroke Play Division

Proposed Rules/Scoring

 

Purpose:

To provide a fun and competitive experience for all participants.

Pairings:

Stroke play pairings should be done in the same manner as the match play divisions so that each club is paired at least once with every club in the division.  Players 1 and 2 will play with players 1 and 2, 3 and 4 with 3 and 4 etc.  If a team is short players, they will fill positions starting with number 1 and work down the lineup.

Each club should submit a lineup to the host club on the day prior to the match and include each player’s handicap index. The index will determine the player’s position on his team.

Format:

18-Holes stroke play, gross and net. Individual net winners should be recorded. Gross scores will be used to determine points for division scoring.  Each club is responsible for sending players that are capable of playing an 18-hole round in a reasonable amount of time.

Scoring:

Points will be awarded for each player’s finishing position on a gross basis.  The team score for each match will be the total of the individual players from that team. Total team score for the season will determine the division winner.
