Handicap
All league participants are required to keep and maintain a MSGA Handicap. This is an annual fee paid to the Montana State Golf Association and includes your MSGA yearly membership. Cost is $20. Each week your current Course Handicap from the corresponding tees will be used for scoring. Equitable Stroke Control will be used for all league rounds played for the purpose of score posting and determining 9 hole handicaps.

Format
Each week teams will compete against each other in Individual Match Play. There are 20 points available each week of play. 10 points per individual match. 1 point per hole & 1 point for winning each individual match.

Handicap Strokes will be awarded to the higher handicap player in each match. They will receive the difference between their 9 hole handicap and their competitors. They will receive those strokes on the hardest handicap holes. Ex. Player A is a 9 handicap, and player B is a 5 handicap. Player A will receive 4 strokes on the 4 hardest holes.

Each team will have 2 players playing for points every week. The low handicap's on each team play each other and the high handicap players will play each other. In the absence of a team or player the other team will play against Par. When playing against Par, you will receive a 2 stoke subsidy, added to your handicap. Any team playing against par must be accompanied by a sub to attest to their scorecard or if a sub is not available, that team must join another foursome to attest to their scorecard.
