Couples League

The Grande/Calderone 2020 Friday Night Couples Golf League

6 Friday Nights During the 2020 Golf Season:

Men will play the white tees, and all ladies will play the red tees.

All events will be a 4-person 9-hole scramble. You and your partner will pick another twosome to play with, or The Grande/Calderone will pair you with another twosome if possible. In the event you are unable to find another couple to partner with you, you will be able to play on your own.

Prizes:

Weekly closest to the pin prize for men and women. Weekly prize for winning team.

End of the year prize for the 1st and 2nd place teams for the league. You are not required to play every week, but the more rounds you play, the more opportunities you have to earn points.

Point system:

Each week, teams will accumulate points based on their performance that week. 1st place couples will receive 25 points, 2nd place couples will receive 10 points, and all other participating couples will receive 5 points each week. The couple/couples with the most points after the 8 weeks will be our winners. Again, you are not required to play every week, however the more weeks you play the better chance you have to earn points. New this year: A scorecard playoff will decide the winners each week in the event of a tie. The Grande's scorecard playoff will go from the last hole back, while Calderone's scorecard playoff will go from hardest handicap hole.

Meals:

The Grande/Calderone will be supplying a main course, plates and silverware for each night. Each couple will be responsible for purchasing their own beverages, as well as bringing their favorite dish to pass for the group. Refrigeration and/or outlets are available to keep your food fresh.
