courses used last year: camden, longview, prospect, devil's glen, eastern.
new courses added this year: middle and hopefully 18 at west lake.

i will try to answer last year's league, although many more are more qualified than me.

last year cost $30. the first thing that happens is you get paired up with someone for the whole year. this is done by a random draw.

then, the first 2 or 3 weeks scores are kept to see what your handicap is.
once this is established, then your team competes against another team each week at a different course.

3 points are possible each week. your best player competes against the other team's best player. the other two also compete against each other.
finally, a team point is awarded when you combine the scores.

example. mike robinson ( 0 handicap ) and dan swords ( 5 handicap )
vs. dan thompson (10) handicap and john resch (11) handicap.

if we play camden and mike shoots 44 and dan t shoots a 50, dan t gets the point because mike must beat me by 11 to win ( 10 would tie). dan swords shoots a 45 and john resch shoots a 54. dan swords would get the point because he won by 9 and resch only had a 6 handicap (11-5).

overall, mike and dan s. shoot a 89 and dan t and resch shoot a 104, but dan and resch get the overall point because they have a 16 handicap and only lose by 15.

that week, dan t and resch would score 2 points and mike r. and dan s. would get 1 point.

the handicaps change every week depending on how well you play and we rotate courses and competition every week.

hope that helps and hope that wasn't too confusing.

Good description, thanks. So its like singles with a partner. Weird to have pairings since you shoot individually anyways. Sounds cool, I'm interested.

Also, we discussed trying to pair up more experienced players with less experienced players. One advantage this could give is to pick up some pointers from a more experienced partner.

One way of doing this (I believe) is to not to set the pairings until handicaps are established. Then, divide players into A and B pools so that A's would be paired with B's.

I need to check with my wife. She got real tired of the weekly commitment last year. She kept asking, "Isn't that league over yet?"
