The Hero Golf Tour App will generate handicaps to determine flight eligibility* (coming soon). Handicaps will be stated until the App is finished.
A Flight = 0.0 to 5 handicap
B Flight = 5.1 to 10 handicap
C Flight = 10.1 to 15 handicap
D Flight = 15.1 to 20 handicap
E Flight = 20.1 + handicap
Format: 2-person best ball is for teams comprised of two golfers. each individual plays their own golf balls throughout the tournament. The lower score between them on each hole counts as the team score. If Player A scores 4 strokes and Player B scores 6 strokes, the team score for that particular hole is 4. Each team is responsible for writing down each player’s individual GROSS score per hole.
Tees: Specific to each Hero Course.
Seniors (65+) & women play one marker level closer (subject to change at any time). No super-senior modification provided. Amputee Heroes play from the senior tee location.
Rules: USGA Rules of Golf apply. The ball is played as it lies. Call pro-shop with any rules questions. Local Rules will be provided by the golf course at the event. Infractions and disagreements of rules will be decided by the “Rules committee” consisting of at least one member of the golf course staff and one member from the Hero Golf Tour staff. Any decision provided by this committee will be final and binding.
Handicaps: Stated Handicaps are currently accepted for purposes of Flight Assignment. As Season 3 progresses, the Hero Golf Tour application will begin assigning an official HGT Handicap. When this happens, the first 3 tournaments will be reconciled into the HGT system, and an official handicap for the Hero Golf Tour will be assigned to players. Stay tuned for announcements and further details on this progression.
Mulligans: Players may purchase a maximum of 3 mulligans during regular-season play. Mulligans can be used to improve the overall score. Mulligans are not allowed to be used to win a contest (G22/F22/Putting/HIO). The first shot will always count toward winning any contest hole.
Winners and Guardian Games: Participation in the Guardian Games is required for those who desire to play competitively. Guardian Points and Hero Coins earned will be posted on the Hero Golf Tour league pages and available to view via the HGT app. (coming soon)
*Seasonal Breaks normally occur in October and February to prepare for Regional and National Playoffs
