League Rules & Schedule

FORMING A TEAM:

  • Competitive rounds will begin on Thursday, April 7th, 2022.
  • Singles are welcome and Chesapeake Bay GC will do its best to pair all entries.

ALTERNATE PLAYERS:

  • Each team must designate ONE injury replacement golfer with their contact info on their sign-up sheet.  This golfer will be the designated permanent alternate in the event one of the primary team members is out for a long period of time.  This alternate will not be permitted to play for any other team except the one that designated them.  This is the ONLY alternate permitted for the playoffs and ONLY for long term injury reasons.
  • Each team must list one or two alternates with their contact info for the alternate pool.  Any team is eligible to recruit an alternate from the alternate pool during regular season play.
  • Teams are responsible for getting alternates AND informing the League Commissioner of their substitution.  The deadline to submit substitutions is 7pm Wednesday Night.  CBGC Staff will not be responsible for finding alternates.
  • Teams may not “double substitute”.  There must be at least ONE primary golfer or Designated Injury Replacement playing.  If no primary representatives are present, the team will forfeit the match.
  • Alternates will pay the league fee of $35.00 (or if they have a membership, their rate + $5 for mandatory prizes + $5 for optional gross skins).  CBGC management will approve all substitutions.
  • All league substitutes or alternates must have an established handicap OR present 4 attested 18-hole scorecards.  Failure to do so will result in alternates playing scratch.
  • All Alternates are invited to the closing Awards Ceremony.

COURSE POLICIES:

  • All Players including Members and Non-Members must check in to Pro Shop and pay the league fee prior to play.  ANY GOLFERS FOUND PLAYING GOLF BEFORE PAYMENT WILL BE SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY BY COMMISSIONER.
  • Outside alcoholic beverages are STRICTLY prohibited on property.  ANY GOLFERS FOUND VIOLATING OUR LIQUOR LICENSE WILL BE SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY BY COMMISSIONER.  CBGC Staff reserves the right to inspect bags for outside alcohol per our liquor license.
  • A prompt Shotgun starts at 5:30 pm every Thursday.  We ask all golfers to start as soon as possible when reaching starting hole.  If playing opponents are not present within 5 minutes of reaching starting hole, you may begin play.  Any holes completed before opponents show up will be considered forfeited.
  • Nines will be alternated weekly unless prior scheduled events and / or outings conflict with weekly rotation.
  • If play is rained out, scheduled format is 100% cancelled and the schedule will proceed to the next event with no exceptions and no points will be awarded for that week.  Players will still be able to get a reduced fee for one week to get a round in.  Cash prizes will be applied to the following week, and the next weeks rate will be prorated according to how many holes were played.  Alternates will get raincheck, and they will be invited to play the following week for the prize pool and skins.  Skins will be broken up and be within each conference in the event of a rainout.
  • Every competition will include prepared scorecards and rules of play for the day.
  • Team point totals will be posted and emailed each week along with the league stat spreadsheet.
  • Scoring takes place each week at conclusion of play on score sheets prior to play the following week.
  • League Commissioner reserves the right for judgment in the event of an issue coming up the isn’t otherwise described in this document.  The commissioner will do his best to make the decision that is best for the league in keeping competitive parity.
  • In the event of an odd number of teams, there will be a randomly decided bye week for each team.  Teams that join late may result in a remake of the schedule.  Likewise, if a team is forced to drop out, we will leave the spot open as a bye week.  If there was already a bye week and a team drops out, the schedule will be remade to eliminate teams getting bye weeks, and double bye weeks.
  • Teams that drop out for illegitimate reasons will not be permitted back into the league in following years.  Same with teams that no-show more than 5 times.

HANDICAPPING PLAYERS:

  • Chesapeake Bay Professional Staff has the right to change a player’s handicap if it is thought to be incorrect. Any Player thought to be falsifying a handicap is up for dismissal from the league with no refund.
  • NEW: Golfers who do not regularly play outside of league (as determined and monitored by the handicap committee), will have their scores entered twice.
  • All NEW League members including Alternate members will be required to play a minimum of 3 nine-hole practice rounds in the month of March and April to obtain an accurate and current handicap. All nine-hole scores in the month of March and April will be entered twice by the Chesapeake Bay Golf Club Professional staff – If no scores are given, then a scratch (0) Handicap will apply until a Handicap can be established.
  • League scores will be entered and maintained weekly by Chesapeake Bay Golf Club Professional Staff for accuracy.
  • All players will be required to post accurate scores for each hole played.
  • Players MUST post all scores for rounds of golf played outside of the Chesapeake League.
  • Players may request to play from a different teeing ground (default tees are the white tees) as long as it is reasonable and permitted by the league commissioner.  That player must then play from that teeing ground for the rest of the year.  CBGC recommends moving to a forward tee (green or red) to where you feel you can have the most fun and be the most competitive.  Players who choose to move back to the back tees (black) must remain there for the remainder of the season.  Golfers may only change their tee preference ONCE for the season and must make the decision by Week 10.

  • With gross skins, eagles and better always pay out, and will be split if they are halved.

PLAYOFFS:

  • Total points thru August 18th, 2022 will determine the match play brackets starting August 25th, 2022.
  • Top 8 teams from each conference make the playoffs.  If there is a tie, it will go first to head-to-head record.  If teams did not play against each other, the tie breaker will be points won in stroke play competition.  If that is also tied it goes A vs A, Better Ball, Aggregate, and Shamble in that order.  If by any chance both teams are completely identical, we will go with the team ranked highest in MVT ranking.
  • The playoff bracket will start on the front 9 for the first week – even after eliminated the teams in the playoff bracket will play with this group.  The consolation bracket will always play the opposite nine.
  • Skins will continue to be paid out bi-weekly and will constitute the entire field.  The $1 for contests will go towards the net skin pot during the playoffs.
  • All matches will be A vs A, B vs B w/ best ball being the tie breaker.  If the best ball is tied, there will be a sudden-death best ball playoff on Hole 18. (THIS WILL ALSO BE VOTED ON AT LEAGUE MEETING!)
  • Winning Team’s name engraved on Silver Cup displayed in Trophy Case.
  • The winning team in the final match play bracket will be the overall team winner. The runner up places second. The winner between 3rd and 4th place will be the 3rd place overall winner.
  • 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will receive prizes in gift cards!
  • If one of the team members is unable to participate in a match, the partner may play his/her own ball net score against the opposing team’s best ball net score.

CONSOLATION LADDER:

  • Teams that do not make the playoffs will be re-seeded into a B Flight bracket.
  • 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place of the consolation bracket will receive prizes in gift cards, so there is plenty reason to stick around and play!
  • If you lose in either bracket, you will still have matches.  We will still have the normal skins games and contests for you to win cash prizes.
  • All matches will be A vs A, B vs B, with team best ball being the tie breaker.  As opposed to the championship bracket, ties will defer to the highest handicap hole.

WEEKLY HEAD-TO-HEAD MATCH PLAY:

  • Aside from stroke play weeks, the league will play 2-man team 9-hole head-to-head match play while cycling through various team formats.
  • Players are responsible for reading weekly rule sheet.
  • Weekly pairings will be preset prior to start of the season to guarantee different pairings each week. Every week, teams will be paired with another Team.  Each Team will be responsible for keeping the scorecard of the opposing Team players.
  • Match Play Rules:
    • In Match Play it will be important to post all players scores per hole in case of ties
    • In case of ties between teams, the team who won the hardest handicap hole wins.  If that is also a tie, defer to the next hardest hole.
  • A signature will be required from each Team Representative.
  • 2022 USGA Rules Apply.
  • League Rule: Maximum Score of Net Double Bogey.  This year we will be implementing a maximum score of net double bogey.  If a player does not hole out on or before their net double bogey shot, they automatically forfeit the hole.  If the player’s opponent also maxes out, the hole automatically ends in a draw.  Players who max out must put an X on their scorecard to indicate loss of hole.  This rule is designed to combat pace of play issues and “sandbagging”.
  • League Rule: Out of Bounds / Lost Ball.  If you can’t find your ball within 3 minutes of searching, you may drop a ball in the general area in which you and your playing partners agree that it is with a 2 stroke penalty (instead of going back to the tee/previous shot) and you may drop your ball in the fairway equal to where you think it was lost.  This will alleviate pace of play issues caused by wet conditions.
  • Pace of play will be heavily monitored!  Groups that fall behind 2 or more holes will be penalized.  First weekly offense of slow play will be a warning.  Second will be a loss of 1 point for the year, and all subsequent offenses will be 3-point penalties.  If you need advice on how to speed up play, please consult with the league commissioner.

MID-SEASON TOURNAMENT:

  • At the end of the first half, we will have an individual stroke play tournament.  Everyone will play their ball out, with the maximum score rule in effect.  So, no gimmies!
  • The top half finishers will get 5 points.  This is based on net score.
  • This is a great opportunity for teams to get points, as a team with two players placing in the top half can gain 10 points!

LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP:

  • On Week 19 and 20, the final week of the regular season, we will have an individual stroke play tournament.  Everyone will play their ball out, with the maximum score rule in effect.  So, no gimmies!
  • The top half finishers will get 5 points.  This is based on net score.
  • This is a great opportunity for teams to get points, as a team with two players placing in the top half can gain 10 points!

LIVE SCORING AND LEADERBOARD

  • Chesapeake Bay Golf Club will be using a live scoring and tournament management program called GolfStatus.  Players will be encouraged to use this new scoring app on their phones to keep track of scores, skins, etc.
  • This is not mandatory, but it would greatly assist the commissioner in entering scores accurately.  This program will also help you with understanding your standings in your current match.
