The Gems Newton Cup - June 19 -21, 2009

 

Gems Newton Cup Format & Rules  - Amendment Summary for 2009

New for 2009:  The fourth round (Saturday PM) will be 2-man best ball match play, and the team that is in first place will get to choose which team they play for this round.  The first place team will also determine their order of play after they have seen their competitors order of play. 

New for 2009:  For the fifth and final round (Sunday AM), the team in first place will get to choose the team that they play for this round.  In this instance, order of play will be random; with both sides submitting their order of play to the appointed tournament official, who will then determine the match-ups based on the order submitted.  This round will be individual match play.  The Cup will be decided by whatever team has the highest accumulated points over the entire weekend.  All teams will have a chance to win the Cup on Sunday.

Handicap Calculation:

In order establish all matches on a level playing field, every match will take handicaps into consideration.  The formula that we use to determine how many strokes you get (or give) is ‘your handicap x 90%’. 

New for 2009:  Most players participating in 2009 have played enough rounds over several GNC’s to base an accurate handicap on historical scores.  For the purpose of the 2009 calculation, a guide has been provided below which calculates what your approximate handicap should be for Radium (before the 90% calculation).  The formula that is being used for your particular calculation is provided in the far right column.  This formula is very close to the standard RCGA calculation for handicaps, only it does not take slope into consideration, and the course rating is based on the par at Radium Resort (69).  The most important factor, though, is that all handicaps are being calculated in a consistent and equitable manner.  It is still up to the individual to establish their handicap before the tournament.  This is a guide for those who don't carry an official RCGA handicap, or do carry a handicap but play limited rounds each year, other than the GNC.

Rule Infractions

Players will follow all rules of golf to the best of their ability.  The enforcement of rules and on course rulings must happen and will be imposed within your foursome at the time of dispute.  A group consensus must be met at the time of the ruling, and will stand for that particular hole or instance.  Rules or decisions shall not be disputed once consensus has been met within your group, regardless of whether after the fact, an incorrect ruling was made (based on the rules of golf).  All decisions pertaining to rules made within your foursome will stand for the hole or instance in question.  Be aware that “consensus”, can also mean postponing a decision until after the round, when a proper rule book or tournament official can be consulted about the matter.
