2018 Presidents Cup
April 15th to July 15th
To be eligible to play in this tournament, a player must be a dues-paying member of the ORLGA and have a valid handicap in GHIN. Also, the 10 play rule is in effect for this competition. Members may sign up as a team or as individuals who will be assigned a partner. (See sign-up instructions below.) Both partners should be able to play the majority of the time frame (April 15th through July 15th) to facilitate greater ease in scheduling matches. Since scheduling matches is a problem, you should not be signing up if you have scheduled vacations, surgeries or other commitments that make you unavailable for most of the time.
The maximum partner index differential cannot be great than eight (8) as of the handicap update on April 1st. In addition, at no time, can the differential be greater than eight (8) for handicapping purposes. Should the difference become greater than eight (8), then the higher handicapped person wll be capped at eight (8) strokes higher than the lower partner.
Entry Fee: $20 (cash) per team due by April 15th. Place in container on Diane Wright's porch at 88 Abbington Place.
Maximum Number of Players: 64
Director: Diane Wright

Rules: Match play rules apply. Putts may be conceded by oponents.
Handicapping Information: All players will receive 90% of their handicap. Appropriate rounding will be used. For example, 90% of 7 is 6.3, which will be rounded down to 6; 90% of 3 is 2.7, and is rounded up to 3. In each match, the low handicap player has no strokes and the other three players have the difference between their handicap and the low handicap person or Player A. Each player receives strokes from Player A.
Flighting Information: The teams are established by handicap into four (4) or eight (8) flights, depending on the number of teams that sign up. The flights will be determined based on indexes with an equal number of teams and as balanced as possible. Round 1 matches within each flight must be played between April 15th and July 15th. If any teams do not complete their matches by July 15th, then they will forfeit the matches not played. If needed, playoffs within flights will be played between July 16th and August 15th.
