Match Play

Signup cutoff date: Sunday May 16th, 2021


This year we will not have a scheduled first day of match play.

Often there are players who cannot make the date because of graduations.

Thus, you are required to sign up by the above date.

Pairings will then be made and it is up to the players to schedule when to play.

Pairings will be made based upon the handicaps as of the date above.

Flights will be in groups of 16, so the number of flights depends upon how many sign up.

You can play whichever courses you decided upon.

Use the tees defined below for your particular flight.

Because of the new handicap system this year (WHS), your handicap will change each time you post a score.

Because of that, you are required to create your own scorecard with the proper pops based upon your handicaps on the day of play.

If you need assistance, please ask. The GHIN app should help you.

Head to head match play over 18 holes to progress to the next round.

Strokes given are based on handicap differential – and the ‘odd number’ stroke is always on the front 9.

Example: Player A has a course handicap of 10, player B is 13 – differential is 3. They are playing Sleeping Indian/Cottonwood.

Those 3 strokes are taken on stroke index holes 1&2 on the front nine (#5 & #2) and index 1 on the back nine (#11).

In subsequent rounds, the current handicaps should be used.


Tied after 18 holes

 If tied after 18 holes, go to the pro shop and ask where you can play to finish your match.

 You may need to start play on a different hole than you started.

 You also begin again with any pops.

 Thus, if you get 2 strokes and you begin play on Silo, you would get a stroke on hole #21 if you get that far.

 Your next pop would come if you play more than 9 extra holes.
