RE: Spring Cup 2010

See above links for the Letter to SNEWGA reps and the sign-up sheet for your club's teams. The SNEWGA representative will need to get the teams signed up, and send the team information to Marianne Roggemann. The rep no longer needs to find people to play each week. If any team needs to find a substitute for any week's play, it is the team's responsibility to find a replacement.

New for 2010: team partners must be within 10 strokes of each other's handicap, and handicaps are adjusted to 90% of a player's course handicap, rather than 80%.  The same adjustments apply to subs.  If players have a differential of more than 10 strokes, the higher handicap player's handicap will be lowered to be within 10 strokes of her partner.  Please read the Letter to SNEWGA Reps for details on all of the changes for 2010.

If you have any questions, please contact Marianne Roggemann.



  • It is a 2-person better ball NET tournament.  16 teams or half the field (whichever is fewer) will advance after the first round, based on the lowest scores.  6 teams will advance after the second round, and two teams after the third round.  The fourth round will be the division (day of play) final, and the fifth round will be the Spring Cup Final.  Except in the last two rounds, ties will be broken by a match of cards (per USGA rules).
  • Tournament adjusted handicaps for partners must be within 10 strokes of each other (per Spring Cup rules, course handicaps are adjusted to 90% for all players).  If, after adjustment, the handicap spread between partners is greater than 10 strokes, the higher handicapped player's handicap will be lowered.
  • Each club can send as many teams as they want.  All teams must go through the SNEWGA Rep. Substitutes can be made over the course of the tournament.
  • Once a player (as a player or a sub) has been eliminated in any round, that player cannot be a substitute on a team that is still playing
  • The teams will be divided into two Divisions, each representing a day of play (weekend versus weekday).
  • The tournament will run exactly 5 weeks (rounds) starting in early May.
  • The Division winners will participate in the Spring Cup final for the championship in a match play format.
  • The final round will be played on a weekend at a neutral site.
