Ryder Cup Rules

Last updated 10/27/17

 

 

      ALL PLAYERS will play the green tees on all par 3s (#5, #7, #12 and #17) and the white tees for all other holes.

      Players that regularly play from the Green Tees may do so on all holes.

      Holes 1-6 will be a scramble format. In this format each player hits their tee shot, selects the best shot and both players play their next shot from there. Repeat until the ball is holed.

      Holes 7-12 will be a better ball format. Each player will play their own ball and the better score between partners will be the team score for each hole.

 

      Holes 13-18 will be an alternate shot format. Each team will choose one player to tee off all even holes (14, 16 & 18) and the other player will tee off all odd holes (13, 15 & 17). After the tee shot the other player hits the second shot and continue to alternate until the ball is holed.

 

      On #17 both players will tee off in order to participate in the closest to the pin contest, however you must play the ball of the team member teeing off the odd holes.

 

      Putt everything out. NO GIMMIES!!

 

      You may lift, clean and place the ball within 1 club length, no closer to the hole everywhere except in hazards and on the green. You also cannot improve the lie (i.e.: cant go from rough to fairway, etc.)

 

      Within your foursome you will keep score for the other team. 1 score per team per hole.

 

      For lost balls and/or balls hit OB use the league rule, which is mark where the ball was lost or as close as you can. From there you can go backwards in a straight line to where you hit the previous shot and drop anywhere on that line. You will take 1 penalty stroke for the drop.

Example: hit drive OB, drop at OB point and you will be hitting 3rd shot.

 

      All tie breakers will be match of cards beginning with the first hole.
