Each season the one individual who shows most improvement in her handicap index earns approved award points for “most improved.” To be eligible for this award, a person must have played half of the scheduled events. The calculation is based on raw point differences from beginning of season to September 1.
Seasonal Winner by Flight
In 2020 a new competition called “Seasonal Winner” was established. At the end of the season, an average of each player’s 12 best rounds will be used to determine a Seasonal Winner for each flight. A player must play at least 12 rounds to be eligible for this award.
Ringer by Flight
Each season, the person in each flight with the best ringer score earns approved award points. A ringer score is a player’s best score on each hole over all rounds played in the season. The season’s best score on hole 1 is added to the season’s best score on hole 2 and so forth through hole 18. Ringer scores are updated each week and can be found on the GWGA website.
The Ringer Competition shall begin the first week and run through the third Thursday
in October. Ringer scores will only be recorded on Thursdays following our individual stroke play tournaments. Ringer scores are not recorded if the game played involves team/group scores, such as a scramble.
Birdies, Eagles and Holes-in-One
Birdie, Eagle, and Hole-in-One pins are awarded for birdies, eagles, and holes-in-one on unique holes. Each member can earn up to 18 of each pin in a season—one for each hole. Holes-in-one on par 3 holes are also eagles but will only be recognized as holes-in-one. At the end of the season the person in each flight with the most birdies is given approved award points. All eagles and holes-in-one also receive approved award points.
