*Best Position format requires all team players to tee off their own balls. After which, the team chooses the ball in the best position. All team players take their next shot from this position. This continues until the ball is in the hole.
**Match Play Team score is compared to the opposing team score on each hole. The team with the lower score wins that hole. (2 points)
Skins is a golf game where each week each team donates $6.00 to the skin pot. At the end of the round all the team’s individual hole scores are compared and if any team has a lower score than any other team on that hole they win a skin. The skin pot will be divided by the number of skins won each week. If no team wins a skin in any given week, the pot carries over to the next week until a skin is won. Any money left in the pot at the end of the season will be paid out in a random draw from within the division the skin was for.
*** Special Events Each week each team donates $3.00 to the special event pot.4 different holes on both the front and back nine will host a special event as set by Rich Spring Staff. The four winners in each league (Lopez and Berg) will each receive a $15 Rich Spring Golf Course gift certificate or Shadys Longshots Bar and Grill. This will vary from week to week.
