Golf Rules (we hate rules but...)
Golf Event Format: The competition format is a four-person scramble. In this format, each golfer hits from the appropriate tee box (men from white tees, women from gold). The team decides which of the four ball locations to use and each golfer hits from that position. This process is repeated until someone hits their ball into the cup. The team captain will record the gross team score for that hole. Please do not put scores relative to par, ie. -1. Turn in your scorecard to Ron Yorita or Richard Miyauchi immediately following your round in the cart return area.
A minimum of 3 drives for each team member must be used during the round. The maximum score for a hole is a bogey (1 stroke more than par). When you reach a bogey, please pick up your balls and proceed to the next tee-box.
Placement of Ball: You may place your ball within one club length of the chosen ball, no closer to the hole and within the same cut of grass. On the green, each golfer must putt from the marked spot.
Licorice Ropes: Each team member has the option to purchase 34” licorice ropes at 4 for $30. You utilize licorice to move your ball anywhere on the golf course. For instance, if the best putt for the team is 6 inches away on your 3rd stroke, you can tear off 6 inches of licorice, the previous putt is considered made and you record a 3 on your card.
Mulligans: Golfers have the option to buy mulligans (do-over shots). The price of mulligans is 3 for $20 and is represented by delicious Tsue Chong fortune cookies. One mulligan per golfer per hole.
Read your mulligan fortunes because there are some that deduct one stroke off your final team score. Put your team # on it and turn that fortune in along with your scorecard and we will deduct 1 stroke from your score. Any fortunes turned in after all the scorecards have been collected will not be accepted. Also, you can win a free drink on Richard at the dinner afterwards (not the drink cart) if you get a lucky fortune.
Color Ball: Each team will be given one brightly colored golf ball. This ball must be played every shot during the round until lost, rotating between teammates on a hole-by-hole basis. For example, player 1 (P1) hits it on hole 1 (H1), P2 on H2, P3 on H3, P4 on H4, P1 on H5, etc. If you forget to use the ball on any stroke, your team is disqualified from this extra competition. If you finish the round with a color ball, please write "CB" on your scorecard and we will deduct 3 strokes from your score. You may purchase insurance color balls for $10 each. When you lose the original, you may replace it before the next shot. Please note that only 3 strokes will be deducted no matter how many color balls you return.
Threesomes: If you have 3 golfers on your team, the color ball will rotate amongst the 3 players as described above, and whomever hits the color ball may also hit another ball so your team is playing a total of 4 balls.
New This Year: On the 13th hole, in order to reduce it's historic bottleneck, there will be a large boxed-off area in the driveable area. If the drive of one of your team's golfers lands in this area, you get to move your ball for free down to the lower level in the designated area.
Golf Contests (we love contests)
Putting Contest (11am-1pm at practice putting green behind driving range)
Contestants have the opportunity to hit three putts for $10. There are three distances from which a golfer can choose to putt, with each distance having a different point value. The golfer with the largest point total wins. In the case of a tie, a putt-off on the 9th green following the round of golf will determine the winner.
The winner receives an Alderbrook Resort & Spa 1 night stay and a sleeve of customized Pro-V1 golf balls that states you are the M&M Putting Contest champion.
Accurate Drive Contest: (10th hole)
If your tee-shot is closer to the centerline than the current marker location, write your name on the marker and move it to where your ball rests. The drive must stop within the limits of the centerline rope to be eligible. In the case of ties, the first one wins. The use of mulligans isn't allowed for this unisex contest. The winner receives a Seattle Marriott Waterfront 1 night stay with breakfast for 2.
Long Drive (men 18th Hole and women 6th Hole):
The ball must stop in the fairway to be eligible. If your ball is in the fairway and past the marker, move the marker to your ball and write your name on it. The use of mulligans isn't allowed for this contest.
Closest to Pin (unisex KP on all five par 3’s):
If your tee-shot is on the green and is closer to the pin than the last entry on the marker, write your name and the distance from the front of the cup to your ball. The use of mulligans isn't allowed for this contest.
Chipping Challenge: (13th back tee-box)
Win a drink on Richard at dinner while you wait to tee off on Hole 13. Instructions on how to do so it posted at the tee-box. This activity is free to all golfers!
