Weekly Format Challenge
Each week features a different format. Payouts are based on how well players do in each weekly format challenge. Weekly Payout will go to the Top 10 Players and Ties. Roughly $4 of the $5 prize fund collected each week will go to weekly payouts and the remainder will go towards the playoff winners.

Prizes will be distributed using league issued gift cards. Once you receive a gift card, it is required of you to keep that gift card while you are a member of the league. We will add any winnings remotely to your registered card throughout the year. The two things your league gift card is not valid for are, weekly league fees, and F&B items. You may use your winnings on anything else sold from behind the proshop counter. Use it on weekend Green Fees, displayed merchandise, special order clubs/apparel, range balls, or even towards a membership.
Arthur Hills Cup Points
Cup points are distributed by how well an individual or team does, playing against the field using the Net Stroke Play scoring system. No matter what weekly format challenge is scheduled, every player will play a normal 9-Hole round of golf. We no longer make people play with 5 clubs, alternate shot, or do some other silly game that would take away from the enjoyment of you playing your own ball on every shot, each & every week.

Net Stroke Play (Played in all Majors)
Definition: Stroke play is a round of golf in which the score is kept by adding the cumulative total of strokes taken throughout the round. Your league handicap is subtracted from the total strokes to give a net score.
- The USGA Rules Govern All Play with the Following Local Rules:
- Play all hazard stakes as if they were Red, meaning play it as a LATERAL HAZARD. That way there are no OB stakes to worry about allowing you to drop a ball within two club lengths of where it last crossed the hazard. If you ball comes to rest in an area that would normally be OB you may NOT choose to hit you ball like you would if the stakes were truly red.
- Must Play the Ball Down / As it Lies
- Must Putt Out Every Shot
- Max Score on a Hole = Par + 5 Stokes. This means you play beyond Net Double Bogie.
- Red Tees = All Ages
- Official USGA “League Play” handicaps will be used to score each competitor.
- 100% of each player’s index will be used for established league handicaps.
- If a player shoots a score greater than Net Double Bogie on a hole, their score will be adjusted to reflect Net Double Bogie for handicapping purposed only. If you shoot a Gross 10, Net 9 on a Par 5 you would record a 10 net 9 on your actual scorecard. You would not stop playing after you reach Net 7 on a Par 5.
Ball Lost, Ball Out of Bounds, or Ball in a marked Hazard
- All Out of Bounds will be played as a lateral hazard.
- You MUST take a drop two club lengths from the point the ball crossed the hazard. (one penalty stroke)
- If the course is marked OB you CAN NOT play the ball as it lies, you must take the drop. (Do not hit the shot from someone’s back yard, please!)
- Water Hazards- All water hazards are lateral (Red Stake)
Start of Play
League fees MUST be paid 10 minutes prior to the start of your tee time for each player/substitute or that player will receive a 2 stroke penalty on their first hole. League fees must be paid before a player proceeds to the course or a disqualification will result. For a complementary bucket of range balls you must arrive 20 min before your tee time. In addition, any player not physically present for the shotgun announcement receives a 2 stroke penalty on their first designated hole. If a player is not present on their starting hole before their group leaves the teeing ground, they will incur a score of PAR + 5 Stokes for that hole, and any subsequent holes in which their group has already left the teeing ground before they arrive.
Pace of Play
- All 9 hole rounds are required to be completed with score cards turned in NO more than 2 hours and 20 minutes after your scheduled tee-time.
- Failure to keep pace will result in a warning (1st offence), Players put on the clock (2nd offence), and Players required to skip a hole or holes (3rd offence). If a hole is skipped a player will record Par+5 strokes.
- Eliminate honors in your group, play when safe and ready!
- We ask that you fix your ball mark and any ball marks in your line of putt.
- When taking a divot, please replace your divot. Use the sand only if your divot has shredded.
- Rake any bunker that you walk into whether you play out of it or not.
- Please keep all carts on the path around tees and greens.

Avoid these when entering scores in the App.
Please DO NOT enter all pars for a player if they do not show up. It slows down the process of getting weekly results finalized and puts a lot more work on us to figure everything out. Look at it this way, If I did not show up to a match, you would not write all pars for me on a paper scorecard, right? Just make sure if a player does not show up, be sure to remove him/her from the app scoring.
If you have already begun scoring you cannot remove a user – you must have to delete it and restart by deselecting that user so that he does not show up on the live scoring.
Avoid starting the live scoring app until you get to the first tee. We have seen a reoccurring problem creep in more because folks are firing up the live scoring app at home at noon for their 4pm match, then when they get to the course, they realize that the other team did not show up, so they just leave par on the scorecard for all their holes.
