Rules

- Players do not have to be current paid members of STDSC to play league, outstanding memberships dues will be deducted from a player's winnings. 

- Every player must have played 2 scratch rounds of each singles and doubles to establish their handicaps. The $4 from those rounds goes to the club and not paid out to the other players.  The first 2 scratch rounds at singles will be entered in both short & long stats to help establish their handicap.      

- If a player's membership is current, they will be eligible for payouts with a % Deviation calculated from scratch (0) against other league players without having established their handicap and their $4 will be included with the payouts.

- A player's membership dues must be paid for the current year to be eligible for the ace pool.

- Handicaps records are permanent should a player not play for any length of time.

Singles League handicaps use a %Deviation calculated from the Trimmean average from up to twelve-weeks. 

E.g.; (medium average) drops the 4 lowest & 4 highest scores and calculates an average from the middle 4 weeks or medium scores. (1/3 till 12 weeks are accrued). The oldest of the 12 weeks is dropped and replaced with the most recent entry. Finishing order is calculated by the % deviation of the raw score from the Tri-average.

Doubles Leagues are choose your partner with overall weeks averages using the previous factor system. 

E.g.; -10 averages X .75 = -7.5; +10 average X 1.25 = 12.5

-Players without partners flip for random selection. In the case of a three-way flip, the odd man out plays two shots and has the option to pay twice for the chance to double their winnings; should they win or ace but have not paid twice, the league shall collect half of any payout.

-The first 2 rounds that two players play together, the team will use the lowest course handicap of either player. A solo person shall use their course average twice. Once 2 rounds have been established, the team then has a handicap that stays true to them; other partner's stats will not affect it. An overall course average is calculated from all the rounds of all the different partners you will ever have. Handicaps are calculated the same as singles except accumulative weeks are recorded.
