Categories / Divisions
There are Opens, High School (HS) and Primary 5/6 (PS) divisions.
Opens and High School have a regular competition as well as a Club Championship competition. Both run simultaneously. Primary 5/6 has a regular competition only.
Format and Scoring
All competitions are team-based. The Championship competition is based on raw scores and the regular teams competitions use a handicap system.
Each player has 60 mins to complete their highest four scores each round. The team score is the combination of all players. There are 9 regular rounds with finals at the end for the Championship comps. Winners of the regular competitions are determined after 9 rounds with top-of-the-ladder results.
Youth must score during their nominated time each week where adults / opens have flexibility. Opens may score on Wed at 5:45pm (the one nominated time) or on an anytime basis each week. Scores are all live online and ladders are updated on Mondays.
Players earn a 'grade' relative to their own personal round scores. Each round score is relative to one another and players must complete a minimum of four round scores to be eligible for Championship finals.
Personal grades are season specific. However, a baseline grade is applied to individual players at the start of each season based on the previous season grade.
Clubs and Teams
All teams are affiliated with one of the three clubs - Honey Badgers, Donkeys or the Hornets.
The Club Championship score each round is determined by the highest five individual player scores regardless of which team that player is in. The Championship team is therefore the 'representative team' of each club rather than a specified group of players. Each club has one Championship team in both the Opens and the High School divisions. Come finals time, each club is represented by the five (5) players with the highest season grade in their respective club in both divisions.
Teams in the Opens are made up of 4-15 players per team. Players may form teams of their own choice.
Teams in the youth divisions are made up of 3-6 players per team. Players may form teams of their own choice and players may join a team at any stage during the regular season.
Championship Finals & Premiership
Finals are held on the Friday afternoon and evening of Round 9 for HS Rep and Club Championship teams.
Opens Club Finals is an isolation format with four problems.
The Premiership is determined by a combination formula of minor premiership placing and on-the-night finals results. The order of finishing place will be multiplied by each other for a total outcome (ie. season placing x finals night placing). If there's a tied combination score at the end of the finals then a tie-breaker fifth problem climb-off will apply.
