Rules

THE GAME
The regular season will consist of 6 regular season weeks to determine the ‘cut.’. The playoffs will consist of 2 weeks with the top four teams advancing. Each team will be paired against another team each week in a bay. Each team of 4 will play a 9 hole, best ball, stroke play format. There will be a new course each week in conjunction with the PGA Tour. There will be 8 golfers and 2 teams per bay. Players may bring their own golf bag, clubs, gloves, and balls. Each bay will have one complete set of right handed and left handed clubs to use if needed. Prior to the start of play, each player from each team will log in to the golf simulator system and enter their individual player names and team name. Settings of the game will be set to “PRO League” meaning players will tee-off from the PRO level tee placement. Women players may select women’s tees when logging into the golf simulator system. Weather will be set to “Windy”. Teams will alternate shots amongst their teammates and select the best ball from their shots. Then the second team will go (all their players will hit) and select their best ball. The hole will continue until both teams finish. Double bogey is your friend (a team cannot score more than double bogey for any hole). Once double bogey is reached, pick up your ball and move on to the next hole. Tee-ing up shots from the fairway is not allowed. If you swing and miss it is a stroke.    If two teams are tied at the end of 9 holes, a playoff will decide the winner. The first tiebreaker is to replay hole 18. If the score is still tied, longest drive on hole 18 playoff (ball must land in fairway). The team who wins the hole wins the round. Each team is responsible for keeping their own score and turning in a completed scorecard to the SPORTSKIND official after the round.  
BEGINNING OF THE GAME
Each team will receive 15 minutes to warm up prior to their match. After the warm-up period, team captains may decide which team tee’s off first.

A minimum of 3 players are required per team to play. There are no gender requirements. If less than 4 players show up for the match, that team does not get an extra shot, they play with the amount of golfers present.

Tiebreakers if teams are tied after the 5 regular season weeks are: Head to Head matchup Lowest combined team score at the end of 5 weeks Longest drive  
WAIVERS
In order to participate in the league, each participant must register online and sign the team waiver. Players must sign the waiver in order to be eligible for playoffs.  
PLAYER ELIGIBILITY
Players who have been placed on the roster and signed the waiver are eligible for the regular season and playoffs. Any player protests in the playoffs must be done before a game.  
FORFEIT POLICY
If your team forfeits a match during the season, the following rules apply: First Offense: Loss of game. Score marked: 0. Second Offense: Loss of game and lost ability to make playoffs. Third Offense: Removal from the league. If you know in advance that your team is going to forfeit a game, we encourage you to contact us so we can inform your opponent. Teams have until five minutes past the designated start time to field a full squad (or the league minimum of players required according to rules). If at that time a team is unable to field a legal team, they forfeit the game. The teams may utilize the simulator during their allotted time to play an unofficial game. The official score will be marked as a loss with the respective forfeit score.
