This is a fun and low-key way to try different tournament formats! Participate in as many or as few challenges as you want.
All monthly challenges are based on net scores only, running from April through September. Teams will win cool prizes and a season-long points list will be kept with the top teams earning an invitation to a fun, casual, social golf day at The Home Course this fall. The number of teams qualifying for the final event will be determined by the overall participation level and will be announced at a later date in the year.

Entry fee: No fee to join the league. Each monthly challenge costs $25 per team.
Field size: There is no limit on field size for each challenge, so get all of your friends to sign up!
PLEASE NOTE: Players must have the same teammate for each monthly challenge and are responsible for paying their own greens fees during each challenge.

In a Scramble, each team member hits a tee shot on each hole. The team then decides which of the two balls is in the best position to play the next shot from. Once the team decides which ball is best, they then mark the position of the ball, either with a coin, tee, etc. Each player then retrieves their ball and plays a shot from the new designated spot. This is then repeated for each shot until a ball is holed.
A Best-Ball (or Four-Ball) is very similar to a usual round of golf. Each team member plays their own ball from on each hole. At the end of each hole, the lowest score posted by either teammate is recorded as the team’s score for that hole.
In Chapman stroke play, two players play as partners with each playing from the teeing ground and each player playing her partner’s ball for the second shot. After the second shot, including par three holes, partners select the ball with which they wish to score and then play that ball alternately to complete the hole. The player who did not hit the approach shot that the team selected will then hit the third shot. Then players alternate hitting the shots until the ball is holed.
A Shamble is similar to a Scramble but there are a few key differences between the two formats. A Shamble starts off similar to a Scramble where both players will play from the teeing ground. Then they select the best drive of the team. Each player will then put a ball into play within a club length of that spot and complete play of the hole with her own ball. The lower score will count as the team score for the hole.
