What is the format?

The Fall Classic is a two-person team event. The daily formats are:

  • Round 1 – Best Ball
  • Round 2 – Texas Scramble
  • Round 3 – Scramble
  • Round 4 – Modified Alternate Shot

The tournament will be scored with net results using a percentage of each player’s handicap.

How are teams flighted?
Teams will be flighted by combined team handicap into approximately six flights (two per course).

IE: Team 1 has Player A with a 10.3 handicap and Player B with an 11.5 handicap.  Their combined handicap is 21.8. The lowest 27 team handicaps will be placed in the first flight. The next 27 teams will be in the second flight and so on. Flights 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 will play the same courses.* Based on a full field of 324 players*

Can I enter as a single?
Yes, you may enter as a single and we will pair you with another single to create your two-person team!

Participating Courses

Course assignments will be released after entry is closed and all handicaps have been collected to complete the flighting process.

What tees will we play?

Men 59 & younger will play from the standard white tees, Men 60+ will have the option to play from senior or mens tees, and Ladies will play from the Red tees. 

Can we request to be on the same course as another team?

You may request to play in the same flight as another team, but all players will have to play down to the lowest team handicap of the players involved.

For example: If TEAM 1 has a 32.4 handicap and wanted to play with TEAM 2 that has a 19.2 handicap, then TEAM 1 would be flighted with each player being equally adjusted to reach a team handicap of 19.2. Once flighting is complete, TEAM 1 will have their handicaps restored to the highest threshold of that flight (not to exceed their original handicaps) in order to give them as much of their original handicap as possible (If the threshold was 24.2, then each TEAM 1 member would receive half of the 5.0 index points and play at a team handicap of 24.2 for the event). Requesting to be in the same flight as a friend DOES NOT mean you will be placed in the same grouping.

The tournament committee requires all Play Together requests to be made on the handicap submission form.  No changes will be made to a player’s flight once the course assignments are announced.
