Any Gaspar golfer can play in the one-on-one Gaspar Challenge matches after they have played in 2 Gaspar Invitationals, and have an official 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. You may only challenge ONE player in your group, but others in the group may challenge you. 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. It's up to the group if they want to play out of bounds as a lateral hazard, 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!
The Gaspar Challenge match rules will be changing in 2021. There will be a limit on how many times you may challenge the same player in a month, and how many total challenges you may play in a month. We will also be placing more emphasis on the Gaspar Invitationals for Gaspar Cup points and standings for the Playoffs. We may also increase the number of players in the Playoffs from 8 to 16. New rules will be posted prior to January 1, 2021.
