Exception: Par 3s where each player will play their own ball throughout the hole. Minimum number of drives per player is 3, excluding Par 3s. Team Score is the best net score on each hole.

Maximum number of drives per player is 5 for a 4- man team and 7 for a 3-man team (including par 3’s).

Member – Guest Day – 2 Man Best Ball/2 Man Cumulative Net
A 2 man team both with GO Handicaps will play a 2 Man Best Ball. Each player will play own ball. Team score based on best net score of a player on the hole.
For 2 man teams where only one player has a GO handicap, the handicapped player will play own ball and record gross score (with a maximum of Double Par per hole), then deduct their handicap to determine a net score for the round. The non-handicapped player will play own ball and record gross score (maximum double par on any hole) – their handicap will be calculated, after the game, using the Callaway Scoring System* – both net scores will be added together to establish a team score.
*The Callaway System is a handicap algorithm designed to provide a handicap estimate based on one round of play. The Callaway ‘handicap’ can then be used to calculate a net score for that round.
Captain’s Cup Day – Team Cumulative Net Score
Participants are placed into 4 teams (flights) based on handicap. Play own ball, record gross score for each hole then deduct handicap from overall 18 hole total to determine net score. Net scores are aggregated by flight to determine the winning team. To improve pace of play, the maximum number of strokes on any hole will be 10. Each team (flight) will tee off together with a block of tee times.
Modified Alternate Shot
Modified Alternate shot is a stroke play golf competition format for 2-person teams in which both golfers on a team hit drives. The best drive is selected. Players then play alternate shot until ball is in the hole. The golfer whose drive was not chosen hits the second shot. The ball is played as it lies and not to be replaced under any circumstances unless governed by the rules of golf.
Teams will be balanced to the greatest extent possible according to handicap. New in 2019: Both players can hit an approach shot for the purposes of Closest to Pin prize.

Once a player has used up the string he must complete the round under the Rules of Golf. ** Bring scissors! Record Gross score only. String replaces use of handicaps.
Chicago (new in 2019)
