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!
