What Do I Get if I Win?
The entry fee will be pooled and split up accordingly to the top finishing teams, depending on league size, after the last playoff game.* (Excludes Illinois and Ohio as there are no entry fees to participate in these locations)
What are the Rules?
Each team will play head to head against another team on their scheduled league night for the duration of the 6 week regular season.
If you are in the 4-person league, the A and B players from each team will play in one bay and your other 2 teammates, the C and D players, will be in the bay next to you. In the 2-person leagues, both teams will play as a foursome in the same bay. Each player will hit five shots and then alternate with the other three players in the bay. The same rotation should be maintained throughout each game. The order should change from game to game to ensure one team does not have an advantage over the other by always going first or last.
At the end of twenty golf balls the game is completed.
Player match ups will be determined by position on the team. For four man leagues player designation will be A, B, C, or D, assigned by the team captain. For two man leagues player designation will be A or B, assigned by captain. For the first two game each evening the players of opposite team will play against the same designated letter match. For all game excluding TopPressure the scoring will based on total score between head to head match ups and a total combined score between the A/B and C/D players in four man leagues. The same will be true for two man leagues utilizing scores from A players and B players.
For a four man league the first two games are worth six points for each game. In the two man leagues the first two games will be worth three points for each game. TopPressure will be the combination of the whole team’s scores verses the combination of the opposing team’s scores for a total of one point.
In the case of four man leagues there are 13 points to be had each evening, and 7 points for two man.
*** Manual Scoring
If for some reason a ball does not register, a ball edit may be made to the outer most ring of the target.
CAN I HAVE ALTERNATES ON THE TEAM?
- Teams can have multiple alternates who fill in on dates that other team members aren’t available. The alternate must have played at least 2 games of Topgolf in the past so a handicap can be calculated, or they will play at a 12 handicap. Once a player has league scores posted, only league scores will be used to calculate their handicap.
- If a team’s alternate is not available and the team only has 1 player (or 3 in the case of the 4-person league) that week, then the missing player will receive a score of zero. However, the player(s) that do show will be able to earn their individual points in their own head to head matchups. As mentioned below, every point counts.
- An alternate may not be used for the playoffs unless they have played in at least TWO regular season matches in the current season.
HOW DO THE PLAYOFFS WORK?
Playoffs are single elimination, starting the week 7 of the season. Teams will be seeded according to the season standings. Quarter finals will be played week 7 with semi and finals played week 8.
WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE A ROUND OF THE PLAYOFFS?
In the event that a team or player cannot make a round of the playoffs, the team or person needs to contact the Topgolf league manager listed below to set up a makeup. The makeup needs to be completed before the scheduled night of the playoff. No later makeups will be accepted. However, the scoring for the makeups will be handled differently. The player(s) will incur a 10% reduction to their total score and the game must be witnessed by a Topgolf associate. A printout of your score will be attached to the scorecard.
HOW DOES THE HANDICAP WORK?*
Handicap will be based on scores from the league play only. The first night of competition will be a blind matchup with the handicap based solely on league scores from the first night that will be retroactively calculated into the scores.
Handicaps for each game are calculated by taking the players score, minus the par of the particular game, then divide that number by the specific game multiplier. From there each player receives 80% of that index. For example: Player A shoots 150 in Topgolf. The Topgolf game par is 250 and it’s multiplier is 5. 250 – 150 = 100/5 =20(.8) = 16.
Handicaps will then be given to the players at the beginning of the match beginning in week two. The maximum handicap will be 30 for league competition.
