High Sierra Team Play (HSTP) 2017
High Sierra Team Play is a team competition among 18 member clubs in Northern Nevada. Arrowcreek, Carson Valley, D'Andrea, Dayton Valley, Eagle Valley, Empire Ranch, Fernley, Genoa Lakes, Incline Ladies, Incline Teesters, Lakeridge, Red Hawk, Reno Women's, Sierra Sage, Silver Oak, Somersett, Toiyabe and Wolf Run.
There is a tournament each month from May through October and each clubs sends a team of six to each event.
Teams are selected from ladies who sign up and play on qualifying day (first three low gross and first three low net). The Team Captain is exempt from qualifying and is always a team member unless she decides otherwise. Alternates are also selected from qualifiers in case someone cannot go.
The courses to be played, dates, and qualifying dates are shown in the Club Schedule. Sign up sheets will be available each month and will show the course to be played, the date, the tee time and the cost.
Competition is open to all, but players must qualify. Caveat: If you belong to more than one club, once you "tee it up" for a given club in a HSTP event, you must continue to pay for that club for the rest of the year. You can not switch to another club to play for HSTP.
The format is stroke play with each team member being given a quota based on handicap. The quota is calculated by subtracting one's course handicap (based on the course being played) from 46. (Example: If your course handicap is 20, your HSTP quota would be 26.) Thus, the higher the handicap, the lower the quota. The maximum handicap allowed for HSTP is 36. One may have a higher handicap, but if playing, must play to a 36.
POINTS are earned as follows for the Gross Score on each hole:
Double Bogey = 1 point
Bogey = 2 points
Par = 4 points
Birdie = 6 points
Eagle = 8 points
Double Eagle = 10 points
After scores are totaled for the game any points over the quota are a "plus" for the team; any points less than the quota are a "minus" for the team. The best five of the six team scores are counted.
At the end of the season awards are given to the 1st through 5th place.
At the tournaments each foursome is comprised of four ladies with comparable quotas (handicaps). You seldom play with a golfer from your own club.
Team play is a great way to play different courses, meet new people, and reacquaint with people you've met before. It is also a wonderful confidence builder. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the qualification.
