Horse Race 2019

This Year the Horserace will be on SUNDAY!

There will be 12 two-man teams playing a 27-hole tournament.  Each two-man team will play 3 nine-hole matches.  We will count holes won as 1 point each, ties as 1/2 point each, match wins as 2 points. Total points possible is 33 (3 x 9 for winning all holes + 6 for 3 match wins)

The Format will be as follows:

1st 9 - Hi-Lo

2nd 9 - Sucker in the bucket

3rd 9 - Chapman

See the GAMES tab for the rules of each game.

Each player contributes $30 to the prize pool.  The $720 prize pool will be split as follows:


$150 to First Place Team ($75 per player)

$80 to 2nd Place Team ($40 per player)

The pool for correctly picking the top 3 teams IN ORDER is now $800. If no one picks the correct order, the $200 from this year gets added and it rolls over until next year. 

**No one has picked the teams in order the last 2 years, so the payoff for 2019 is $800**

The team tie-breaker is points on First nine, then second nine then third nine

$200 goes to the player who scores the highest by picking the 3 teams with the highest COMBINED total of points.

$30 to Second, Third & Fourth place pickers

$30 to player who picks LOSER team that scores fewest points - you cannot pick your own team

Each player picks 3 teams in order. Add the scores of your 3 teams for your total score. Ties split the pot.

The $30 must be paid when you put in your picks.  You can submit your picks on a piece of paper WITH YOUR NAME ON IT.  Also, keep track of who you picked and total the points up yourself - if you think you have the highest total, then shout it out at the payoff ceremony. You need to know your own total, we won't be totaling up all the scores, just checking to confirm highest totals.
