2014 MEMBER STROKE & PUTTING ECLECTIC TOURNAMENTS

An Eclectic Tournament is a multi-round golf tournament that results in one 18-hole score per player. Participants play a number of rounds on a specific course, compare their scores for each hole over all rounds, and record the lowest score made on each hole over all rounds to produce one 18-hole score. 

The 2014 River Course Eclectic begins June 13th and includes any rounds you play at The River Course through September 1st.  After you submit your first scorecard, we will post your scores for each hole. For each successive round you play, if you improve your score on a hole, record it on your scorecard, circle it, have it attested, turn your scorecard in to our golf professional, and we will post the new score. You do not need to turn in your scorecard if you did not better your score on one or more holes. Scorecards must be attested. No gimmies - if you have a putt to better a hole you must putt it out.

For the Putting Eclectic, record the number of putts you take on each hole and, if you improve your number of putts on a hole, record it on your scorecard, circle it, have it attested, turn in your scorecard, and we will post the new score. Count only putts made on the green - using a putter from off the green does not constitute a putt. Golfers do not have to be on the green in regulation to count putts for that hole.

We will award prizes at the end of the season for Men’s and Ladies’ Greatest Differential and Men’s and Ladies’ Lowest Overall Score, as well as Men’s and Ladies’ Greatest Putting Differential and Men’s and Ladies’ Lowest Overall Putts. Example for the differential: John Doe starts the season with a gross score of 95. At the end of the season, Mr. Doe has improved his hole by hole total to a 70. His differential would be 25. The differential will then be matched against others to determine the winner for greatest differential. 

The scoreboards will be updated regularly and posted on the bulletin board in the clubhouse.

2014 COUPLES’ FOUR-BALL MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

In this unique Couples’ Championship, teams of two (one man and one woman) will compete in a series of better-ball matches, working their way through the tournament bracket to win the Club Championship. Active members wishing to compete in the Couples’ Championship must register in the golf shop by July 6th and matches must be played by September 3rd.

THE BASICS

Members must have an active USGA handicap to compete.
All matches will be played at The River Course at Keystone.
Men will play from the white tee boxes and women will play from the red tee boxes.
The tournament bracket, match assignments, and match play rules will be posted in The River Course golf shop. 
Competing couples will schedule their own matches on days and times that are agreeable to both opponents. 
Our golf professional will create official scorecards that will indicate any allotted strokes and the holes to which they apply. 

THE MATCHES

Each match will pit two teams of two (a total of four balls) against each other using better-ball scoring. All four players play their own ball throughout the round; at the end of each hole, the low net score between the two partners on each team is that team’s score, and the team with the lower score wins the hole. For example, if Player A of Couple A scores a net 5 on the hole and Player B of Couple A scores a net 4, the team score for Couple A is a 4. Then, if Couple A scored a net 4 on the hole and Couple B scored a net 5, Couple A wins that hole. 

HANDICAPPING

All matches played for the Championship will be handicapped as follows. The course handicap for each of the four players will be reduced by the course handicap of the player with the lowest handicap, who then plays from scratch. Each of the three other players is allowed 100% of the difference. (See USGA Handicap Manual Decisions 9-4a/2.) For example, Players A, B, C, and D have a course handicap of 5, 10, 15 and 20, respectively. Player A plays at scratch, B receives 5 strokes, C receives 10 strokes, and D receives 15 strokes.
