  • 2 points Player 1 vs Player 1

  • 2 points player 2 vs Player 2

  • Individual Match - The low handicap index player on Team A plays the low handicap index  player on Team B and the higher handicap player plays the higher handicap player. If the index handicaps are the same for both players on a team that team will designate who plays who (Not the opposition). This is rare.  Use index.  ADJUST YOUR CARD IF NOT CORRECT.   


2 points for TEAM (1/2 vs 1/2) teams strokes off lowest HDCP player.  You will need to determine that from your scorecard provided.

  • Team Match – Player 1 and 2 on Team A vs Player 1 and 2 on Team B.

  • Strokes will be determined based off the low handicap player in each match.

  • The scoring will be as follows:   2 points for a win, 1  point for a tie in each match.


      Team & 1 sub plays a regular match as outlined above

      Team single (partner a no show- ONE TEAM)

      A single team plays against both players individually.  INDIV (2)/INDIV (2) & TEAM (2).


     Team single (partner a no show- BOTH TEAMS)

     A single team plays against single for 4 points.  Team match is an automatic tie (1-1)


  • Preferred lies in your own fairway.  Every week.


The end of the season tie breaker will be head to head matches. If there is still a tie the prizes will be split evenly with the exception of the winner of each division. That winner will be decided by a 3 hole playoff on “The Loop”.

Substitutions, No Shows, and Makeups

  • Find a sub.  Any PBGA member can sub for you.  Use the sub list posted on website or make your own contact.  A team with 1 sub can compete under regular rules.

  • You may have 1 week where you have 2 subs for your team and play under regular rules.  This is a 1-week exception.

    • Otherwise: If the entire team cannot make it and can substitute 1 or 2 players the other team will receive 3 points and play against the alternate or alternates for the remaining 3 points.

  • If a team is unable to play it is their responsibility to contact the other team and one of the Association’s board members – (John Bancroft 508-631-0040) a minimum of 24 hrs in advance. If something unexpected arises the week of your match it is your responsibility to contact the other team and one of the designated Association’s board members a minimum of 24 hours in advance if possible. An exception may be made based on the situation.

  • If you know you or your teammate will not be available a week or more in advance you may match cards or play PRIOR to your scheduled match. If neither team can play their match when scheduled and can’t make up their match or match cards then each team will be awarded  3 points.

  • If a team does not notify its opponent or their officer with at least 24 hrs notice that it cannot make a match and no one shows up from that team they will receive 0 pts and the opponent who does show up will (**play against par) to determine their points.
