The Golf Classic has been crafted to include a wide range of players. There are two formats of play from which to choose. Those who would like to play more competitively may request “Championship Play” and those who would like to play more informally may request “Casual Play.”
Championship Play has been designed for participants who seek to compete in an event that is more like a professional golf tournament. Golfers and teams will compete against one another on a world-renowned course designed by Jack Nicklaus for the PGA Tour. No scrambles, no mulligans, only enthusiasts vying to shoot their lowest score.Championship Play participants will compete exclusively for the First and Second Place Low Gross, the First and Second Place Low Gross Team, and the First and Second Place Low Net contests.
Championship Play golfers abide by the USGA’s Rules and Competition Guidelines. At the completion of each hole, players’ individual scores will be recorded by the caddie. At the completion of each hole, foursomes competing for low gross team award will use the lowest individual score among all team members to serve as the team score. To compete for low gross team award, at least two players in foursome must designate Championship Play format. Champion golfers competing for low net award must provide GHIN or Golf Association Number before tournament. Clarifications related to guidelines on tournament day shall be determined by Chris Kaczke, Head Golf Professional of Sherwood Country Club.
Casual Play golf is designed for participants who play more to enjoy the beauty of Sherwood Country Club. Casual Play golfers will be allowed up to five mulligans at a suggested donation of $10 each. No more than two mulligans may be used per hole. Casual Team Low Net will be scored using the Callaway System, no more than two Championship golfers per team. Casual golfers may compete for the Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive, Hole-in-One and Putting Contests, however they may not use mulligans during these contests. Final score will not be counted for Championship Awards. Casual play golfers may simply enjoy the experience of playing in a gorgeous setting.
Golfers within foursomes may individually choose between Championship Play and Casual Play, but must make their designation by May 11. All Championship Play golfers competing for the Low Net contest must also provide their GHIN or Golf Association Number by May 11. Please include these on your registration, or submit them to email@example.com.
