PLAYING GASPAR CHALLENGE MATCHES

All players may play in a max of 4 Gaspar Challenges per month.  The same 2 players may play in a max of 2 Gaspar Challenges against each other per month.

There is no fee to play a Gaspar Challenge, but only Members can qualify for the Gaspar Cup Playoffs, and Gaspar Challenges count toward the Points!  All membership fees go into the Gaspar Cup Playoffs prize pool.

Any Gaspar golfer can play in the one-on-one Gaspar Challenge matches after they have played in 1 Gaspar Invitationals, and have an official Quota or conditional Quota.  4 Gaspar Cup points for a win.  2 points for a loss.  3 points to each player for a tie.  We award those who are willing to accept a Challenge, even if they do not win.  Everyone in the group may challenge each other, for a total of 6 Challenges in a foursome.  You MUST play in the same group, and the format is Match Play (no carryovers)

Triple bogey is max, so if both players triple, it's a pushed hole.  This is even true on a hole where a player is receiving a stroke.  If both players max the hole, it is a push regardless of the stroke.

If a Challenge is NOT in a Gaspar Invitational, it's up to the players if they want to play out of bounds as a lateral hazard like we do in our tournaments, and if they want to hit 2 balls off the first tee.

Game features a handicapping system based on each player's Points Quota.  Take the difference between the Points Quotas for each player, and the lower Quota player receives a stroke on each hole in the amount of the difference between Quotas.  For example, a player with a Points Quota of 20 plays a player with a Quota of 15.  Take the difference of 5.  The player with the lower Quota receives 1 stroke on the 5 hardest holes based on the scorecard.  The standard wager amount is $5, with no max, but there is no requirement to wager.  Be brave, pirates!

Challenge Results

Gaspar Challenge Matches

Gaspar Challenge Rules

Gaspar Challenge Matches are for Official Gaspar Golf Members, and involve a lower ranked player challenging a higher ranked player in an 18-hole Match Play round.  The rules are as follows:

  1. Both players must be Official Gaspar Golf Members.  An "Official" member is someone who has played in at least 1 Gaspar Invitational Tournament, and has either an assigned Quota or an official Quota.
  2. We now require a $2 entry fee PER PLAYER for any Gaspar Challenge that you would like recorded.  Players must pay for their month's Gaspar Challenges by Venmo to @GasparGolf by the 5th of the following month.  The exception to this is any Gaspar Challenge played in November.  You have until midnight of the November event to pay for all your November's Gaspar Challenges, or your points will not count.
  3. 100% of all Gaspar Challenge funds will go to the end of season Gaspar Cup Playoffs prize pool.
  4. Each player may play in a MAXIMUM of 4 Gaspar Challenges per month.
  5. Each player may play the same player a MAXIMUM of 2 times per month.
  6. Every Gaspar Challenge match is handicapped, unless you and your opponent have the same exact points quota number.  To figure your Gaspar Challenge handicap for a match, subtract the person's quota who is lower from the player whose quota is higher.  For example, if Player A has a quota of 35, and Player B has a quota of 20, subtract 20 from 35 to get a difference of 15.  The player with the lower quota receives a stroke on the 15 hardest holes on the course where the Gaspar Challenge is played.  Now, Big Mex can play White Mike in a Bragger Challenge, wager $5, and have a fighter's chance against The Great One.  
  7. Anyone can challenge any other player in the Gaspar Rankings, no matter who is ranked higher.  The other player does not have to accept.  Want to move up in the Gaspar Cup?  Play more Gaspar Invitationals and Gaspar Challenges, and stop your lollygagging and dilly dallying.
  8. You may only challenge and play one Gaspar per round of golf.  You may NOT challenge two or more players in a single round of golf.  Another player may challenge YOU, effectively allowing you to play 2 matches at once, but you can't challenge two Gaspar golfers.  So, you can challenge someone, and someone can challenge you, and then you're playing 2 matches at once.  Be careful when this happens.  BOTH opponents must agree to concede your putt before it's conceded, because you are playing against 2 players.
  9. All challengers must play in the same group.
  10. The minimum wager amount is $5 per player.  Winner takes all.  Side bets are encouraged.
  11. Gaspar Challenge Matches will be played under Match Play rules, where a player may win a hole by shooting a lower score on that hole.  There are NO CARRYOVERS, like in a Skins Match.  If the two players tie on the hole, it is just that, a tie.
  12. A match is over when there are not enough holes remaining for the losing player to at least tie the winning player.  Scoring is like this:  If player A wins the first hole, he is 1-up.  If he is up by 3 holes when arriving at the 16th tee, the match is "Dormie," meaning the losing player cannot win.  He can only tie.  If they tie on hole 16, the match is over, and the winning score is 3 and 2.
  13. Gaspar Challenge winners are awarded 4 Gaspar Cup points, and the loser is awarded 2.  If there is a tie, both players receive 3 points.
  14. Two tee shots are allowed on the first tee, with players choosing between the two balls.  If you hit both balls out of bounds, or both in a hazard, you must play one of those balls, and take your penalty accordingly.  We now play balls hit out of bounds like a hazard.  You may drop and hit your next shot where it ENTERED the out of bounds area.  Not parallel to where the ball came to rest.
  15. No additional mulligans or "breakfast balls" are allowed during the rest of the match.
  16. All balls may be lifted, cleaned and replaced, except balls in a hazard or bunker.  Your ball may be lifted, cleaned and placed as close its original position as possible, also allowing balls to be removed from divots.  The ONLY exception is if a ball is on tree roots in the rough, or in such a placement that the player's club would strike a root, causing injury to said player.  The player may only move his ball far enough to allow striking the ball without contacting roots, and must be no closer to the hole.  This does not mean you may move your ball away from the tree so you have a clear line to the green.  Move your ball backward, keeping the obstruction between you and the hole.  This also doesn't mean you can move your ball away from a tree if your ball is sitting on a root-free lie.  You must hit the ball out sideways, if necessary.
  17. All putts must be made, unless conceded.  Players may not pick up their ball unless it is conceded by his or her opponent, and can be any distance from the hole to be "given."  No "my ball is inside my putter grip" concessions in Gaspar Challenge Matches.  Your opponent is the only person who can allow you to pick up your ball.  You may pick up your ball and concede the hole to your opponent at any point in a hole.  You may also concede the match at any point.  We highly encourage you to concede short putts to help speed up play.
  18. Max score is in play in Gaspar Challenges, which is 3 over par for any hole.  If both players have maxed the hole, the hole is pushed.  We highly encourage you to tell your opponent to pick his or her ball up when the outcome on the hole in question is already decided.  If you are in the hole with a par, and your opponent is chipping for a bogey, PLEASE tell him or her to pick up their ball for a bogey, and move on to the next hole.  As mentioned before, if you pick up your ball, you have conceded the hole to your opponent.  You may do this anywhere on any hole.
  19. Please review these rules so that you are familiar and comfortable with how we play Gaspar Challenges.
