The Cove View Men’s Golf Association, in conjunction with the Cove View Golf Course, will continue another season of the Stubbs Insurance Cove View Cup. Established in 2017, and patterned after the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup, members of the Association can play in a season-long competition earning points, and culminating in the crowning of a Cove View Cup Champion.
Points will be earned over a span of 26 events (21 weekly play events and five tournaments). Local handicaps will be established after participants have played one local 9-hole round. A player’s local handicap will use the lowest three of your last six 9-hole rounds. This local handicap will be used in all five-association tournaments. Players will retain their handicaps from the 2022 season. For a new player, until you have 4 scores on your handicap, your max handicap is a 9.
In order to play in the Club Championship, two (2) 9 hole rounds must be played throughout the season.
Weekly play will take place at the player’s convenience on Monday after 12:00 (noon), Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of each week. All players will be required to play USGA rules and must be accompanied by another Association member to verify their score. If there is a question as to the rules, members will play a provisional ball and golf course management will issue a ruling.
All putts will need to be holed out. No putts can be given in the Cup.
A cup Scorecard will be provided from the counter in the Pro Shop. Scorecards must be signed by you, and attested by another and turned in immediately after completion of each round.
Players will choose which tee box they would like to play (blue or white) and will play on this tee the entire season; unless their age allows them to play a different tee. All participants 60 years old to 64 years old may play from the white tees. All participants 65-74 may play from the yellow tees. All participants 75+ may play from the red tees. 13 and under will be allowed to play from the yellow tees. For those 13 and under, you must also be playing with a participating adult. Any girl who would like to play in the Cup will play from the red tees.
Cost is minimal with $7 paid to participate in each round. $6 will be returned in prize money each week and $1 will be added to the purse for the Cove View Cup at the end of the year. For those who would want to participate, there is an option to pay an additional $3 for a gross and net skins game.
Participation in each of the five tournaments will cost $25. Membership in the association cost $30 with money used to increase payouts at tournaments and help with projects around the Golf Course.
$5 from the association fees will fund a hole-in-one pot. At the end of the year, the pot will be given to the person(s) that made a hole in one. If more than one person made a hole in one, the pot will be split evenly. If a hole in one is not made throughout the season of the Cove View Cup, the money will be added to the final season payout. All participants will need to pay their association fees before their first event played in Stubbs Insurance Cove View Cup.
When weekly entrance money has been paid, you must immediately start the round on hole 1 or 10. No practice on holes of the cup after money is paid per USGA and local rules.
There will be four flights (A Flight, B Flight, C Flight, and D Flight). Using the course handicap, each week flights will be split evenly to keep the flight number totals similar.
The men’s league committee has the right to adjust any rules or handicaps throughout the year if needed.
