Tournament Format

Format for Play

The 2-day tournament is made up of four-person teams with a two best ball format. Each player whose score is counting for the team is required to putt out. Mulligans are available and can be used for any stroke on a hole, excluding contest holes such as Closest to the Pin and Longest Drive. All mulligans are purchased at registration, with a maximum of two per day per player.

Handicap Index

There is a max handicap for men of 24 per player, and 36 per player for women. All scores and handicaps are subject to review after each round. The handicap index of GHIN for both courses is based on Sun Valley’s course ration. The previous year’s tournament scores may be considered for the current year’s handicap adjustments as decided by the Handicap Committee. The Committee reserves the right to adjust handicaps at any time during the tournament, and the adjusted participant’s handicap may be used for individual low net and team scores.

Practice Rounds & Club Rentals

Practice rounds for the tournament players are available on both courses Wednesday and Thursday of the tournament week. Each player receives two practice rounds total, with one practice round on each course. Tee times must be scheduled in advance. Clubs can be rented at the Sun Valley Clubhouse. Participants are responsible for their rental charges.


Awards are presented to the three lowest scoring teams over the 2-day tournament, to both the Low Net and Gross scores for men and women, and for the Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin on both courses.
