Am I playing against another team?
Yes and no. You are playing against every other team in the standings but when you are using the space at CitySwing it will be just you and your teammate. If you’d like to bring friends to watch your round and act as your own personal gallery you may do so.
Do I have to play the same time every week?
Of course not! Your team will decide what day and time you complete your round in advance. You can choose any day and time during the week.
Do we get any time to warm up?
You have one hour to finish your round. You can spend however much time you’d like warming up but keep in mind, that will take away time from your round.
What if we don’t finish our round in the allotted time?
If for some reason you aren’t able to finish 9 holes in an hour, you will receive a double bogey for each hole that was not completed.
Is there a max score per hole?
Yes. Double bogey.
Which tees do we play from?
Men will play from the member/tournament tees. These tees play between 6,500-6,700 yards. Women will play from the ladies’ tees. These tees play between 5,000-6,000 yards. The final will be played from the championship tees at around 7,000 yards for the men and the ladies’ tees at 6,400 yards for the women.
Do we putt every hole out?
There’s no putting. When a player reaches the green, TrackMan will assign between 1-3 putts, depending on proximity to the hole. If you are inside of 8 feet you will be given a 1 putt.
Is it handicap adjusted?
Are mulligans allowed?
What if the simulator misreads my shot?
Our technology is amazing, but it is still a machine and sometimes it does misread a shot. The discretion will be of the CitySwing team member to decide whether to give a mulligan or not. All CitySwing team member decisions are final.
What is the level of competition?
All skill levels are welcome!
What if there’s a tie?
If there’s a tie between two or more teams during the week, we will use the hole handicap to break the tie. Whichever team records the lowest score on the most difficult handicap hole will win the tie breaker. If there is still a tie, we will go to the next most difficult handicap hole until a winner is determined.
Are there weekly prizes?
Yes! Each week there will be a long drive and closest to the pin hole that will be predetermined. Winners will be given their prizes the following week.
Is there a finals watch party?
Of course! The final match will be played for two hours on December 17, 2018. The watch party will be held during the second hour of the match. During the second hour we will serve cocktails and appetizers. After the match we will hand out prizes.
Are clubs provided?
You know it! We have clubs, gloves, tees and balls for all teams to use. You are allowed to bring your own equipment if you choose to do so. If you do bring your own clubs, we ask that you arrive 10 minutes early so we can clean them.
Do you use real balls?
They sure are. Yes! Our TrackMan Simulator does not require chips inside or any alteration to the golf balls. You are welcome to use your own golf balls, or we have balls available.
Can I store my equipment at CitySwing?
Absolutely. If you’d like to leave your equipment with us over the course of the league season, you are more than welcome to do so. We will charge a $10 fee per person for this service.
