NEW – Maximum Score

 

The HHMC Board adopted a 'Maximum Score" for most of our tournaments, but not our Majors. This supports Pace of Play. 

 

Maximum Score is now, 8/9/10. Easy to remember. 8 is the highest score you can take on a par 3, 9 on a par 4, and 10 on a par 5. Pickup and move on! 

 

NEW – Tees and Handicaps!

NEW Tee Boxes:  Blue/White and Red/White Combo Tees          
Age: Handicap: Tee Box:            
< 60 < 18.6 Blue             
< 60 > 18.5 Blue/White combo             
60 - 69 < 15.1 Blue             
60 - 69 > 15 Blue/White combo             
60-69 > 18.5 White             
70 - 74 < 10 Blue            
70 - 74 > 9.9 < 15 Blue/White combo             
70-74 > 15 White            
75+ All White            
75+ > 14.9 White/Red combo By choice only - MUST let Joe know prior to 1st Tournament  
75+ > 19.9 Red By choice only - MUST let Joe know prior to 1st Tournament  
Rule of 85 Age + Handicap = 85 is no longer in place, use chart above.             

 

The Board hopes that these 2 changes will help with Pace of Play and competitive fairness for all ages.

 

We will evaluate these changes as the season progresses. 

 

Posting Scores

  • Please start posting all of your Colorado Scores beginning March 15!
  • Scores from yearlong posting areas (CA, TX, AZ, FL, etc.) should still be posted after each round.
  • It’s best to post “hole by hole”. The USGA GHIN app will automatically take the correct adjustment on each hole.
  • Please review the handicapping information on our website.
  • ALL players are responsible for posting their non- HHMC tournament scores every time they play. Please be familiar with the following:
    • Post all acceptable scores, including 9-hole rounds
      • Scores are to be posted within the same day of the round being played.
      • Where applicable, proper adjustments must be applied to all scores for posting purposes, including net double bogey and most likely score. The player is responsible for knowing how these adjustments work.
      • Each player will try to make the best score at every hole in every round, regardless of where the round is played.

The Tournament Committee posts ALL Tournament Scores, including the Rudden. We will inform Match Play players about posting.  Do NOT post ANY HHMC Tournament scores unless requested by the committee.

 


Best Practices: 

World Handicap System: Effective January 5, 2020, the USGA implemented the World Handicap System:

  • Players are able to establish a Handicap Index after as little as three scores
  • Player’s Handicap Index is calculated using the best 8 out of their 20 most recently recorded scores
  • The Course Rating and Slope Rating will be fundamental within the Handicap Index calculation
  • The maximum hole score for handicap purposes is a Double Bogey + any handicap strokes on that hole. i.e. a 12 handicap would post a double bogey + 1 max score on the top 12 handicap holes and a double bogey on the rest.
  • Handicap Index will update the day after a score is posted to the player’s scoring record, providing players with a responsive measure of their ability
  • A Playing Conditions Calculation (PCC) identifies and accounts for abnormal course or weather conditions
  • Safeguards limit the extreme upward movement of a Handicap Index and reduce a Handicap Index when an exceptional score is submitted

Tournament PlayHHMC sets all tournament tee times. Members need to call the Pro Shop AFTER we post the tee sheets Wednesday mornings. You MUST pay at least 24-hours in advance. Annuals and Player Passes are accepted over the phone.

* Shotgun starts will be allowed IF we pay in advance!

 

NO SHOWS – Please send a text to Joe (303-548-9609) or Warren (303-957-6925) with a valid excuse (emergency type stuff) if you cannot play in a tournament at the last moment. Please add them to your contacts. If you do not show up for a tournament without sending a text, with a valid reason, you will NOT receive a refund of your entry fee AND you will need to pay $20.00 to enter your next tournament. No shows have a very negative impact on the tournament, especially if it's a team event. 

 

Wednesday NightersWith the increase popularity of these tournaments we need to cap registrations to 40 due to daylight hours. Assigned foursomes go at their assigned times. You MUST register online the Thursday prior and call-in to pay! Food will be served after on the patio. Carts are on an “as available” basis and not guaranteed. One person should act as the designated scorer using their foursome's GGID code and enter the gross scores for your group. Any complaints will ensure you go last in every tournament!

 

Tournament Schedule

The 2022 Tournament Schedule is on our website!

 

Marshalling for tournaments - If you volunteer to be a marshal you will receive one free tournament entry fee. Please email or text Warren if you'd like to marshal for an upcoming tournament. w.blair@comcast.net or  303-957-6925

 

Skins:

  • Venmo! HHMC is using the Venmo app for skins payments (pay for skins and get paid for wins).
  • Please send Warren a friend request on Venmo for future skins payments (to pay and get paid) @Warren-Blair
  • Venmo is a secure, online, payment transaction app with no transaction fees.
  • @Warren-Blair is a separate account used to track all payments (reviewed by the Board for accuracy). Members can pay via Venmo for friends, other players, or during team events. Just enter who you're paying for (tourney, Gross/Net, or both). Members paying for others are responsible for collecting from the member(s) they paid for.
  • Please download the app, use it, and enjoy the ease of paying for things. Ask your kids, they use it every day.

 

Tournament Scoring/Scorecards: Golf Genius automatically scores you when you enter your GROSS score by hole.

  • Golf Genius scoring Only: One player in each foursome MUST enter the scores in Golf Genius for all players. At the end of the round, all players must verbally state their score is correct on each hole of the "e-card" before submitting. Players may be disqualified if they don't accurately review their e-card verbally with the person submitting the Golf Genius group score.

 

Pace of Play Guidelines: All groups must keep up with the group in front of them and be ready to hit when fairway or green clears. Any group one hole, or more, behind the group in front will receive a warning to pull into position within two holes. Play FAST! Any group that has not moved into noticeably better position (less than one hole behind) within 2 holes will receive a 2-stroke penalty for each player in the group.

  • All members must be ready to help with the pin if players want it in or out. Players may continue to finish putting out if they so decide and it would not interfere with another player’s line (except Match Play unless both players agree). This helps with Pace of Play!
  • The 3-minute clock for searching for golf balls starts at the time players are near the vicinity of where they believe their ball landed.
  • Each player should make their stroke within 40 seconds of reaching their ball. This includes surveying the shot, lining up, practice shots and all “waggles”. HIT the Ball!
  • Each player in your group is responsible for keeping their group in position!
  • Balls in penalty areas should not be retrieved if group is not in position. Take your drop and play!
  • Any disrespect towards the Board Member or Marshall when being asked to close the gap or being assessed the 2-stroke penalty or, at any other time, will result in an automatic individual or team disqualification from the tournament and could also face expulsion from the club for violating the bylaws. Board and General Members (or others TBD) may be on the course as Pace of Play Marshalls for any and all tournaments and must be treated respectfully.

 

Season-Long Best Ball

  • $10 gross, $10 net, or $20 gross/net. Pay online. The more tournaments you play, the better you can do. Sign-up any time during the season, but signing-up earlier increases your chances of a better overall season score!
  • We'll keep track of your season-long best balls through Golf Genius (tournament play only) throughout the year. Payouts are based on the number of entries and pay-out approximately 30% of the field.
  • The following tournaments are a part of the Season-Long Best Ball:
  • Kickoff; 3-2-1; Rudden; Partner Best Ball; Match Play; Hyland MIST; Medal Play; Mid-Am/Senior/Super-Senior; and Dalton
  • Must enter a score on each hole. If you pick-up, input what you would've most-likely scored (or net-double-bogey).
