Want to test your golf abilities against an entire league and win cash prizes? We have made that possible!
The Fairways Cup is kicking off its inaugural season in 2017 and we want you to be a part of it. League play will alternate between Mallard Creek Golf Club and Pine Brook Golf Links each week, so you will enjoy playing a variety of holes and layouts. The league is formatted as an individual ‘FedEx Cup’ style setup up. Tee times start at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday nights. League play will officially begin on May 24, 2017 and go until September 14th, 2017.
League fees are just $100 per person. Fees will go towards cash payouts, food and beverages for the included cookouts, prizes, handicap tracking and general management of the league. After the league signup fee is paid you just pay greens fees each week.
Each player will golf 9 holes each week using stroke play scoring. Players will be going head-to-head against the entire league instead of having a different opponent each week. Players will earn points based on the position they finish for the week. For example, if you finish with the lowest net score on a certain week, you will be the first-place finisher and receive the highest possible points for that week. On the other hand, if you finish with the highest net score on a certain week, you will be the last-place finisher and will receive the lowest possible points for that week. Your total points will be added up throughout the season. The ultimate goal is to have the most total points at the end of the season. Below you can find a scoring example:
1st Place: 50 Points 13th Place: 6 Points 25th Place: 3.5 Points
2nd Place: 30 Points 14th Place: 5.7 Points 26th Place: 3.3 Points
3rd Place: 20 Points 15th Place: 5.5 Points 27th Place: 3.1 Points
4th Place: 14 Points 16th Place: 5.3 Points 28th Place: 2.9 Points
5th Place: 11 Points 17th Place: 5.1 Points 29th Place: 2.7 Points
6th Place: 10 Points 18th Place: 4.9 Points 30th Place: 2.5 Points
7th Place: 9 Points 19th Place: 4.7 Points 31st Place: 2.3 Points
8th Place: 8.5 Points 20th Place: 4.5 Points 32nd Place: 2.1 Points
9th Place: 8 Points 21st Place: 4.3 Points 33rd Place: 1.9 Points
10th Place: 7.5 Points 22nd Place: 4.1 Points 34th Place: 1.5 Points
11th Place: 7 Points 23rd Place: 3.9 Points 35th Place: 1 Points
12th Place: 6.5 Points 24th Place: 3.7 Points 36th Place: 0.5 Points
*Points are subject to change based on how many players join the league
Also, there will be both a Regular Season Championship and a Playoff Championship. The Regular Season Championship will be determined by the most points scored throughout the season. These points will carry over to the playoffs, but playoff points will be worth 4 times the regular season value. There will be 4 playoff rounds. The player with the most points at the end of the playoff rounds will be crowned the champion.
We will also host two fun days throughout the year where we host a (2) man scramble with a cookout to follow. The cookout is all you can eat and all you can drink! We will also run a $6.00 skins and pins game each week. Skins and pins are completely voluntary so you can sign up at your own discretion.
We hope you can be a part of the 1st inaugural Fairways Cup! If you are interested in signing up or learning more about The Fairways Cup please email Matt@FairwaysGolfMGMT.com or call Mallard Creek at (440) 748-8231. We look forward to having you as a part of the Fairways Cup in 2017!
