Last year our club the Fox Valley Metro DGC of IL had a club challenge against 3 other clubs in the Illinois area. It was a blast and we are thinking of doing it again.
We played a round of singles and a round of doubles. There were 2 divisions: pro/adv and int/rec. Points were given out as follows:
1st place got a point for every person they beat in their division(no points for a person you tied). Because each club had a different number of players at the event, points were awarded for the top number of players that would equal the team that had the least number of players. For example.
Club A had 5 people, Club B had 7 people, Club C had 10 people and Club D had 8 people. The top point 5 point earners from each club would recieve points for the overall. Same with the doubles round as well.
It went really smooth and was a great way to kick off the spring season.
It was great, no fees. The trophy was donated by one of the clubs. What made it great was there was an INCLUSIVE feel to the whole thing rather than an worrying about getting a partner or making sure a certain number of players showed up.
That sounds like it would work well. I think it would be a great way for golfers to expand their game.. and would be both team and personal competition. I know there are quite a few people here in huntsville that would be up for it.
Im not sure about our club here because alot of those guys are dicks LOL. FOR EXAMPLE.... Last night at the awards ceremony for the 3rd stop in the shasta series the TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR got pissed off cuz he didnt place in the money and tried to set up a 20 dollar night golf game. but besides the egomaniacs i have a team and i know a few other teams in my area that would like to compete.
Tracy and I participated in Texas Teams this year. It was the very best disc golf experience we've ever had. Lots of comradery and happened to be at Houck's home course (very nicely designed). We had 7 per team and played match play. Match play is really fun and you aren't totally out of it till the end (basically we played 9holes against each competitor and if someone won 5 holes that match was over.) Just my .02 cents... it's really worth it to get something like this going.
We at Club Dead have been doing team competition between Clubs and Colleges for quite a few years. the format is good for both beginners and veteran golfers.
We play a one day competition playing handicapped match play doubles and singles. for a modest fee ($20) per player we pay out in doubles stroke play, singles stroke play, singles and doubles match wins and team with the most points on the day. basically $5 per player goes into each payout pool. In the last two years we have been doing the same format for an intercollegiate series here in MI also.
