Match play basic rules:

  • USGA Match Play Rules apply.

  • Fourball

  • Each player plays her own ball.

  • The player with the lowest net score of the four wins the hole or one point for her team.  

  • If a player from each team scores the same net score the teams will “halve” the hole, and each team will receive ½ a point.

  • All points will count to the final color team score.  So all foursomes will play all 18 holes, even if a team will “lose” the match they must complete the 18 holes as their points will contribute to the team total.

  • Teams shall designate who will be the partner to concede a hole/stroke for the team or both team members must indicate the concession for it to be in effect.

  • A stroke concession is indicated with the word “good” or by picking up the ball marker of the opponent the stroke is being given to.

  • Concession of the hole, shall be indicated by saying “We conceded this hole”.  All play on that hole will stop, and all 4 players will proceed to the next tee.  Players will not be allowed to “practice” between tee and green on a conceded hole.
