Penalty: If a player defaults, the defaulting player receives 0 points, her opponent will receive 10 points. If a second player on the same team defaults on the same day, she will receive 0 points, her opponent will receive 11 points. If there are an equal number of defaults on both teams, there will be 0 points for each team.
- If an incorrect index and/or handicap is used, all points won resulting from the use of the incorrect index or handicap will be forfeited to the opponent
- If a player plays out of position all points won by that player will be forfeited to her opponent.
Captains MUST exchange rosters at the time of the first match and MUST set up each match roster with the approval of the opposing captain. This is to ensure that correct indexes and handicaps are used that day in accordance with the slope chart at the course being played.
Carts must be used and shared with your opponent.
If a doubt or dispute arises between players, the players shall continue the match without delay. Any claim, if it is to be considered by the Cup Captains and/or Cup Matches Coordinator, must be made before any player in the match plays from the next teeing ground, or in the case of the last hole of the match, before the players in the match leave the putting green.
The use of a multi-functional device for distance measuring purposes is permitted. However, players are advised that the use of such devices (other than for emergency purposes) in their traditional manner (talking, texting, etc.) is discourteous and may be distracting to others.
The winner in each Cup will be the team scoring the highest point total. In the event of a tie, the points earned in the head-to-head match will determine the winner. If the teams are still tied, then the points earned against the next highest team will be used, until the tie is broken.
The winning team in each Cup will hold the President’s Cup in their clubhouse for one year. The Cup will be engraved with the year and name of the club. Every player who played on the winning team will receive an individual team prize.
* If a club is submitting 2 teams, the first team should be comprised of the players with the 5 lowest handicap indices assuming each team member commits to play in at least one match for the Cup. These 5 players will not be allowed to sub on the second team. All other players may compete on either team for up to 5 matches.
** An exception to this rule is being made with respect to all our Cup matches being played at the Hartford Golf Club. This exception was approved by the CWGA Board at its April 8, 2003 Board Meeting because the Caddy Program at the Hartford Golf Club is unique in terms of availability of experienced caddies. The Hartford Golf Club has requested that we give consideration to those golfers who may wish to walk and avail themselves of the caddy service. Therefore those twosomes wishing to walk with a caddy when playing a match at the Hartford Golf Club are permitted to do so. This applies only to matches being played at the Hartford Golf Club.
