COUPLES – This is an optional tournament played the first day of the tournament. Flights will be made of eight couples, if possible. Couples are comprised of one man and one lady per team. Flights will be made according to MSGA target scores kept by the scorekeeper. The tournament is played as a scramble. Men will play from the senior tees and women from the ladies’ tees or similarly designated ladies tees.
TARGET SCORE – HANDICAP. This is kept by the scorekeeper and any scores that are played in the tournament will be averaged with the previous target score for each player. This process will result in the new Target score kept by the scorekeeper. The men’s averaging will be as follows; men’s average is beginning target score for the tournament plus the two scores recorded in the tournament, then the total divided by three will result in the new target score. The couples and ladies target scores will be computed by adding the beginning target score twice then adding the score recorded in the tournament to get a three score total, dividing this total by three will give the new target score.
PRACTICE ROUND – MERCHANDISE TOURNAMENT. This is held the second day of a four day tournament in conjunction with the practice round. It is held the first day of a three day tournament in conjunction with the couples tournament. This is an optional tournament. Those who wish to participate will post an entry fee of twenty ($20) dollars, with the top third of the players receiving sixty ($60) dollars in a merchandise certificate. The points are determined as follows: double bogey = 0 point, bogey = 1 point, par = 2 points, birdie = 4 points, eagle = 8 points and hole in 1 = 16 points. Players are encouraged to pick up a double bogey. Each player will have a target based on his men’s target score for the upcoming tournament. A minimum target score of 5 points will be established for those players whose men’s target results in needing less than 5 points.
