Outside the cold winter weather may be on its way but indoors here at X-Golf Avonhead things are about to heat up with the launch of our first X-League.
Playtime is over as teams of three will go head-to-head across nine holes of handicapped stroke play every Monday night, leading to a Grand Final and crowning of the inaugural X-League champions.
On the night, all teams will tackle the same course and each player will be assigned individual opponents (match) before the commencement of the round based on Handicap order, higher to lower. Handicaps will be based on a 3 game rolling league score average.
The player with the best NETT score in the match will receive one point for their team, and ½ point each for an equal score. From that, the winning team receives 4 ladder points, squared contest 2 points and losing teams 1 point.
At the completion of the regular season, the top four teams advance to the finals series. The highest ranked team gets to pick the course for their respective Semi-Final and Grand Final match-ups, adding an element of strategy to the clutch part of the season.
X-League has proven a big hit with our Australian counterparts, having been established in 2012, its grown to now running several league nights weekly at multiple X-Golf locations. So if you missed out entering your team this time keep an eye out for future leagues starting up with us.
