2016 MEN’S TWILIGHT LEAGUE

ORGANIZATION

The league is split up into two flights of “2 Man Teams” based on handicap index. The A-B Flight will play from the BLUE Tees and the C-D Flight will play from the WHITE Tees. The season is split with the first half running 8 weeks and the second half running 7 weeks of regular play. The winner of the first half will play the winner of the second half in the season finale to determine the champions of each flight. In the event that there is a tie between two teams for the half season winner it will be split by a separate 9 hole match on the appropriate tees set up during an off league date.

RULES

U.S.G.A Rules will govern all play. A-B flight will play from the Blue Tees. C-D Flight will play from the WHITE Tees. Summer rules will apply unless conditions warrant winter rules. Winter rules you may lift, clean, and place your golf ball one score card length no closer to the hole in your own fairway.
