 Table & Game Fees (greens fees):  Teams should split all fees (if any) equally.

Teams

1. Teams consist of any five league members with a roster of up to Seven. 

  • For players to play in a session, they must be signed up as a league member and on a team roster before the session grace period ends (first two weeks of each session).

  • All Team Captains will keep a score sheet each week via the UBL app and sign both their own team’s score sheet and the opposing team’s score sheet.

  • Team scores will be available for public viewing on the UBL app.

4. Each Team Captain is responsible for payment of their teams’ players weekly fees regardless of how many players show up.

5. If a team falls to less than five players during a session they can replace the player(s) as follows.

  • For the first two weeks of play there is no penalty for adding someone to your roster.  During that time the incoming new players starts as a 3 ball in hand. After that an incoming player will receive the following BIH:

 

  • Week 3 - 2 Ball in Hand

  • Week 4 - 2 Ball in Hand

  • Week 5 - 1 Ball in Hand

  • Week 6- 8  - 0 Ball in Hand

  • No players can be added after week 8  

 

  • If you wish to add an existing UBL player after the two weeks they will come in as their existing handicap or the handicap assigned by the chart above, whichever is lower.

 

  • Player must still play a minimum of 8 weeks with that team to qualify for playoffs.

  • Qualified teams must maintain a current status in good standing with no outstanding dues or fees and continuing to play in all sessions up until qualifying events.  

  • Teams start each of the three sessions at zero points.  Session points do not carry over from one session to another. 

  • If a player has played in a previous session your adjusted handicap will carry over to the new session.

 

2. Each team plays against another team once per week during each session. Each week, teams accumulate points based on the number of player matches they win. The teams with the most points at the end of each session will playoff to qualify for the end of the year playoff to go to the finals. Money is paid out at the end of the session to the top qualifying teams.

 

3. At the end of the year, teams who qualify in at least one of the three sessions will playoff to go to the finals for the main event. If a team qualifies in two of the sessions they have two

chances to shoot a good score. If a team qualifies in all three sessions they have three chances

to shoot a good score. (see playoff rules)
