Match Play / Best Ball (Individual Head to Head matches and a Team match)

Each 9 Hole Match is worth 6 points.  2 points for each individual match and 2 points for the Team Match.

Individual Match - The low handicap player on Team A plays the low handicap player on Team B and the higher handicap player plays the higher handicap player. If the handicaps are the same for both players on a team that team will designate who plays who (Not the opposition)  

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.


(One player can play against 2 for the 6 points. ie: Player 1 vs Player 2 for two points , Player     1 vs Player 3 for two points and Player 1 vs Players 2 and 3 for the two match points

(One player from each team can play against each other. 4 points for a win and 2 points each for a tie. The team match would be deemed a 1-1 tie.

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 Make ups

  • It is the responsibility of each team to make sure that they have two men to play the scheduled match.

  • Obviously, not everyone can make it every week.  For that reason we will have a substitute list posted on the board and on the website. You can use anyone on the list in addition to any Association Member with an established handicap as a substitute. You do NOT need both or one player from each team to play their match; Two alternates CAN join up as a team.

  • 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 or johnbancroft@capecodexp.com) a minimum of 24 hrs in advance.

  •  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 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 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.

  • If a 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.
