Winter League 2023 Rules & Guidelines

Welcome to Longshotz Golf League 2023! Welcome to Longshotz Golf League! We are very excited to be offering an Order of Merit series of 10 - 18 hole rounds of golf using the Stableford points system with the top 16 advancing to the stroke play playoff final. The first 10 matches will be played between Jan 9th 3rd through March 19, with the final being played on March 25th. Each participant will have an entire week in which to get their round played; these rounds can be played in groups ranging in size from 1 to 4 (allow 1 hr per person to play 18 holes). You can not catch up on rounds but you can play ahead if you are going to miss a week. Long-term tee time bookings can be accommodated if punch cards are purchased.

It is recommended you book your tee-time 1-week in advance. Each week’s round must be completed by Sunday at closing time (11pm), which means that weekly rounds can be played anytime between Monday morning and Sunday night. If going on “vacation,” rounds can be played prior only. There will be both a men’s division and a ladies division. The course and conditions will be identical for each weeks play with only the tee box being different for the two divisions.

What is an indoor tournament?

An indoor tournament is just like an outdoor tournament. Same rules apply. You compete against other players and appear on a live leaderboard. You can play in tournaments with a guest profile, but you will need a TrackMan profile to appear on the tournament leaderboard. Join tournaments you have been invited to and participate in tournaments under the “Tournaments” tab within TPS (TrackMan Performance Studio). If you do not have a TrackMan profile yet, you can create one in the simulator, or visit To participate in private tournaments, you must accept the invite sent to your email address, and sign in using your TrackMan profile.

How does the scoring work in Order of Merit tournament?

Order of Merit is a points-based scoring system where each tournament round will give you points towards an overall leaderboard (like the FedEx Cup race, or Race to Dubai). Based on your score in each round you will be awarded points. Individual round scoring will still follow tournament rules (Stableford Net). Points are awarded based on the order if which you finish in each tournament round. The winner of the round gets most points for the Order of Merit leaderboard, second place receives second most points, and so on. The number of points distributed to the winner and all other players is determined by the number of participants.

• 1-100 players →  Winner receives 100 points, 2nd place 99, etc. • 101-200 players → Winner receives 200 points • 201-300 players → Winner receives 300 points • 301-400 players → Winner receives 400 points • 401-500 players  →  Winner receives 500 points • ... • 901-1.000 players  →  Winner receives 1.000 point • ... • 9.001-10.000 players  →  Winner receives 10.000 point

After each round the points are distributed and total points are accumulated.
