The Business Games Golf event is split into two separate grades, competitive and social. Regular/keen golfers tend to choose the competitive format, whilst those more casual golfers opt for the social grade. Regardless of the level of golf, it’s always great to spend a Friday afternoon on the lovely Shandon Golf Course!
Friday, 13 October, 2017
Tee off at 12:30 p.m.
Teams of three tee off at the same on various holes. Teams must play according to the Ambrose Rules (see Rules and Regulations for details). After 18 holes, the team with the lowest score (after deducting team handicap) is the winner.
Competitive: 3 players per team, where 2 or more players have an official handicap of 23 or less.
Team members need to submit their Golf club number and NZ Golf number on the day
(where a player is not currently a member of a club and has no ‘official’ handicap, their previous handicap is to be used).
Social: 3 players per team, and 2 or more players have NO handicaps (or handicap of 24 or more).
Team composition rules must be complied with. Only organisational/company members and their immediate families and de facto partners are allowed to enter. Strictly no “ring-ins” otherwise your team will be disqualified.
Bring your own golf clubs. Clubs are also available for hire from the Shandon Golf Club Pro Shop.
There is a dress code of neat and tidy casual dress for the course. Jeans are not permitted on the course and shirts should have a collar. All golf shoes must have soft spikes to protect the greens.
Rules and Regulations
All our games apply the Ambrose Rules. All players tee off on every hole. The best shot is then selected and this is where all players will play their second shots from, and so on. Once on the green, the best-positioned ball is selected, and all players putt from that point. Ensure you mark the spot where you are hitting from so the rest of the team can place their ball as near as possible.
Scoring is a team net after deducting the calculated team handicap from the gross score. There is only one score for the Team per hole so teams only record the gross score (not scores) for each hole.
Women should play off women’s tee and adjust gross team course handicap (i.e. before divisor) for different par of the course between men and women, if any. At both courses the par difference is 3 so three should be added to gross team course handicap (not handicap index) for each women in the team
Only keep your gross scores on each hole.
There is a minimum of 5 tee shots per person for both social and competitive.
