Point System

Point System & Awards

After the conclusion of play, awards will be given to the top three finishers in each age/gender group. Ties for 1st Place will be broken with a sudden death playoff.  All other ties remain as ties and points are divided equally among the contestants.

  • If weather or darkness prevents completing a sudden death playoff, the winner will be decided by a scorecard playoff determined on the basis of the best score on the last nine holes.  If the tying players have the same score for the last nine, determine the winner on the basis of the last six holes, last three holes and finally the 18th hole. 
  • All 1st Place ties for nine hole players will be determined on the basis of the best score on the last six holes, last three holes and finally the 9th hole. 
  • If the players are still tied using the above method, continue backwards from the last hole until a winner is determined.

If an event is shortened due to inclement weather, scorecard playoffs will be determined by:

  • 5 or 6 holes completed – last three, last hole
  • 7 or 8 holes completed – last six, last three, last hole
  • 9 or more holes completed – last 9, last six, last three, last hole
  • If the players are still tied using the above method, continue backwards from the last hole until a winner is determined

Points will be awarded to all finishers in each age/gender group and will accumulate throughout the year.

Points awarded are listed according to the Points Chart.

Points Averaging

With the intent to reward the player(s) who consistently perform the best in each age division we have implemented the following calculation for Player of the Year Awards:

  1. Points will be awarded for each event player
  2. We will divide the total points by the number of events played (ie: a player plays 3 events with a point total of 900; the players point average is 300 (900 divided by 3 events).
  3. Player(s) must complete 5 events -- and meet the scoring minimum in at least one event -- to be eligible for end of year awards.  If the player competes in more than 5 events, we will use the player's best 5 finishes (5 highest point values earned).
  4. Quiz points (500) will be added to the total before the calculation but is not considered an "event"

If you have any questions about this new calculation, please email the director, John Baker, at john@redhillsjuniorgolf.com.

Tour Championship

A 2-Day Red Hills Tour Championship event will be held as the last season event. Participation in the RHJT Tour Championship is open to everyone. After completion of the Championship, the top three players with the highest POINTS AVERAGE in each age and gender group for the Tour will earn the following awards:

    • 1st    Player of the Year Trophy and Prize
    • 2nd - 3rd place   Trophy and Prizes

Player of the Year honorees (players who finish in 1st place in average season points in each age and gender group) who have participated in at least 5 events in the RHJT and who shoot (boys) 44 or lower on 9 holes and 88 or lower on 18 holes; (girls) 46 or lower on 9 holes and 92 or lower on 18 holes in at least one of the RHJT event, will receive a trophy and prize.

Players who finish in 2nd and 3rd place in average season points in each age and gender group who have participated in at least 5 events in RHJT and who shoot (boys) 44 or lower on 9 holes and 88 or lower on 18 holes; (girls) 46 or lower on 9 holes and 92 or lower on 18 holes in at least one of the RHJT event, will also receive a trophy and prize.

All ties for these awards will be broken by the players' finish in the RHJT Tour Championship.

Participation is limited and is on a first come, first served basis.

Ties - Points for tied positions are added up and divided equally between the players tied at that position. (Example: A 3-way tie for sixth place in a regular event would earn each player 273 points - 300+270+250=820/3 = 273.33)
