Open to all members, passholders and employees with a U.S.G.A. handicap, the third annual Sugarbush Ryder Cup will be held over 2 days.
Ryder Cup Format
Each entry to the tournament will be assigned to Team USA or Team Europe based on handicap, such that each team will consist of roughly the same level of players.
Saturday's round will consist of two person teams, with 9 holes played as a better ball competition and 9 holes played using alternating shots. Points will be awarded for each 9 hole segment, with the winning team earning 1 point on each 9 hole segment. Ties will earn a half point for each team.
Sunday's round will be singles matches. Each winner will earn 1 point for his or her team.
Players for both the double and singles matches will be matched according to their handicaps so that players will be matched against opponents who have the closest possible handicap. Adjustments will be made in the singles matches for any large difference between the players' handicaps, using U.S.G.A. recommendations. Unless there are an odd number of players, men will play against men and women against women.
Saturday and Sunday tee times are tentatively set for 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM on Saturday, Sep 9 and 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM on Sunday, Sep 10.
