SETTING THE LINEUP

  • Team captains will coordinate a start time for their Weds. match (Tues for G-Town).
  • Once all 7 players are there and the match is ready to start, captains will write their starting lineup in order (1-7) on a piece of paper.
  • Both captains will reveal their lineup at the same time. I encourage slapping the paper down simultaneously while yelling SHOWDOWN!
  • Players will then proceed to their starting hole determined by the home team.

RULES OF MATCH PLAY

7 Singles Matches (7 players per team) – Standard 12 hole match play format.

  • It’s player vs. player. To win your match, you must win more holes than your opponent. Tied holes are a push, and DO NOT carry over to the next hole.
  • The winner of each match is awarded 2 points, which goes toward the teams’ point total.
  • Ties are worth one point to each team/player.
  • 2 bonus points are awarded each week to the team who earns more total points.
  • If the team’s total points are tied, the 2 bonus points are split among the teams.
  • All matches are considered tag battles, so long as each player has a CDGC/GTown/SV bag tag.
  • There will be no 2-somes, each group will either be a 4-some or a 6-some.
  • Home team chooses the 12 holes of play, and all players that week must play the same 12 holes. However, the home team may change which 12 holes they play between weeks.

PRIZES:

  • All players will receive a custom button for their bag/cart.
  • Winner’s names will be added to a plaque on the Charlotte Showdown Trophy
  • A plaque installed on the winning courses’ kiosk
  • The pride of being the Showdown Champion
