DWMC Freebie - 2016



Each month all members of the Men’s club will compete for points.  The member with the most points at the end of the month becomes one of the entrants in THE FREEBIE FOURSOME.  If there is a tie at the end of a month, then the player with the most participation points shall be the winner.  If there is still a tie then a coin flip will determine that month’s winner.

The months that we compete for points are May, June, July and August.  Once a member wins a month he is ineligible to win another month.

After the final month of play, all four monthly winners will compete in a 18 hole match during Saturday Men’s Club.  The player with the low net score wins “THE FREEBIE”.     In case of a tie, there will be a sudden death playoff.  The 18 hole match is to occur prior to the Men’s Club Annual Dinner in October.  The four monthly winners will decide which Saturday the match will take place.  Majority rules.  If a monthly winner is unable to participate in THE FREEBIE FOURSOME when scheduled by the majority, the 2nd place point getter in that month will take his place.

And what do they win you ask?  They win a free membership into the 2017 Diamond Woods Men’s Club.  That’s right, you heard me correctly.  Their 2017 Diamond Woods Men’s Club membership is free of charge.

Just exactly how do you win points?  It’s quite simple actually.  Every time you enter a Men’s Club game you get 2 participation points.  This includes Wednesday, Saturday and the monthly Major Event.  There will be no participation or competition points during Men’s Club Road Trips.  This includes those on the Road Trip and those still at home.

In addition to the participation points, there will also be competition points, i.e., if 4 places are paid, then the 1st place = 4 points, 2nd place = 3 points, 3rd place = 2 points and 4th place = 1 point.  If the game has both Gross and Net winners then each would receive points as indicated above.

In the Junior vs Senior Ryder Cup, 2 points will be awarded for winning any match and 2 points if your team is the overall winner.  All halved matches will receive 1 point.

In skins games, 1 point is earned for each skin won.

You don’t have to sign up for this event.  You are automatically entered if you are a Men’s Club member.  Just remember you have to participate in order to win.

Good luck and may all your drives be long and all your putts be short.
