Thursday Night League

Thursday Night Men’s League
2018 Information
 
Format

  • The league season will be split into three, five week long periods.  There will be a position night following each of the three periods.  After the conclusion of the regular season there will be an eight team, bracket style playoff to determine the overall league champion.  The winners of each period from each division will be guaranteed a spot in the playoff.  The final playoff teams will be the teams that have the most points without having won a period. 
  • There will still be two divisions that are based on handicap, but both divisions will play the blue tees.  Most of your regular season play will be against teams in your own division, but depending on the number of teams in the league there may be weeks when you play against a team from the other division.  The playoff that follows the regular season will consist of teams from both divisions playing against each other to determine the overall league champion.
  • Your handicap for the playoff will be your lowest handicap from any point in the season.
