Rules/Event Info

Manitou Ridge Men’s Club — General Rules and Event Info
IMPORTANT
ESC (Equitable stroke control)
Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) is the downward adjustment of individual hole scores for handicap purposes (for handicap posting only) to make handicaps more representative of a player’s potential ability. ESC sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on the player’s Course Handicap. ESC is used only when a player’s actual or most likely score exceeds the player’s maximum number based on this table:
Handicap Max Score
0-9 Double bogey
10-19 7
20-29 8
30-36 9
•NOTE you must write down the ACTUAL score you had on each hole on the scorecard (not the ESC scores) The ESC score is only for score posting. If you shot 90 that is the score we will use for the event. If you had 3 ESC adjustments you post an 87 in the computer.
•If you do not finish a hole you must put an X on the scorecard for that hole. You will then be disqualified for that event unless the event is a Skin game, a Best Ball 2 some, quota points, or if the event is best front nine, best back nine, and best total however if you put down an X you are out for the total.

Scorecards/Score Posting
•Weekend Sweeps – all players are responsible for posting their own scores in the pro shop or online. To post online, go to http://www.golfhandicapnetwork.com. Your group is also responsible for turning in your scorecards to the pro shop staff so they can score the event.
•Major Tournaments – all scores will be posted by the pro shop.

TEE TIMES – Sign up and Show up
Club members – each player must sign up. If no one signs up for your tee time it will be sold to the general public, as well as open 2-somes or singles within your group. You must sign up for Saturday times by the end of the day on Monday, and Sunday times by the end of the day on Tuesday. NO SHOWS result in lost revenue for the course. Multiple no shows could result in disciplinary action.

Payouts – We will try to pay as many players as possible.

EVENTS

Sweeps
Every Saturday and Sunday throughout the season will include an event. For days that do not include a “major” event from the event schedule you may enter that day’s event, called a “sweeps” event. Each player gets 10 free weekend sweeps to use during the season. You must sign up for the event before you tee off. Sweeps events will use Men’s Club Handicomp Handicaps. You may play in as many sweeps events as you wish, but must pay $4 per event played in excess of 10. The pro shop chooses each sweeps event format for that day.
