Partner Changes

Partner changes will be accommodated following these guidelines:

  • One player on the original entry must remain on the side.
  • Partner changes will NOT be permitted after divisions and flights have been posted if the new player would move the side to another flight or division.
    (Example - First Flight handicap range 10-15, the new partner must have a handicap within the 10-15 handicap range). 

Divisions & Course Set-Up

Teams must select their division at the time of entry. There will be both a Championship (gross) and Field (gross & net) Division in each age bracket. Teams must select which Division and Field they wish to compete in upon entry. No team may play in both age brackets or Divisions within age brackets. A team may not switch divisions once pairings are posted. 

  • Senior Championship Division - 5,600-5,800 yards (Gross Only)
  • Senior Field Division - 5,200- 5,400 yards (Gross & Net)
  • Super-Senior Championship Division - 5,200-5,400 yards (Gross Only)
  • Super-Senior Field Division - 4,700-4,900 yards (Gross & Net)

Suggested Handicap Guidelines

The following should be considered when selecting divisions (recommended based on combined team handicaps).

  • Senior Championship Division - 24.0 & Under
  • Senior Field Division - 25.0 &  Over
  • Super-Senior Championship Division - 24.0 & Under
  • Super-Senior Field Division - 25.0 & Over

Committee Discretion: The Championship Committee reserves the right to move any team out of the Field Division if their team handicap (or an individual partner's handicap) is significantly lower than the majority of the competitors in that division, and their scoring history does not reflect the need to play from the Field Division yardage. 

Handicap Requirements

  • All valid Florida GHIN Handicap Indexes used will be from 7 days prior to the championship start date
  • Each player must have a valid Florida GHIN Handicap Index not exceeding 34.0
  • Players in the Field Divisions will play to 85% of their course handicap

It is the responsibility of any player that maintains a Handicap Index lower than her current Florida GHIN Handicap to inform the FSGA for resolution. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.

Flighting

The Championship Divisions are gross only and will not be flighted.   

The Field Divisions will be pre-flighted based on combined team handicaps.

Generally, divisions of more than 12 teams will be pre-flighted. Flights will be based on the number of teams and the range of combined team handicaps.

Breaking Ties

Championship Divisions – The overall Champion will be the team with the lowest total score.  In the event of a tie for first place, there will be a hole-by-hole sudden death playoff on a hole designated by the Committee to determine the Champions.

Field Divisions – All ties in each flight of the Field Divisions will be broken by the USGA scorecard match. The last 9 holes will be considered holes 10-18, the last 6 holes will be holes 13-18, the last 3 holes will be holes 16-18 and the last hole will be hole 18. In the case that players are still tied after the 18th hole, the winner will be determined by lot. 

Middle and Forward Divisions will pay gross first, then net. 

Practice Rounds

Practice rounds are available one week prior to the Championship on a space available basis and after 12:00 PM the weekend before. The price for a practice round is $40.00 + tax and includes cart and range balls prior to the round. Please call 352-237-6644 to arrange your practice round. The proper place to practice your golf swing is on the driving range, hitting multiple shots on the course is unacceptable.

Defending Champions

Taffy Brower and Carolina Hart capture the Women’s Senior Four-Ball Championship on Sunday at Black Diamond Ranch. Brower and Hart fired a final-round 71 to take home the win with a 1-over 145 for the championship on the Quarry Course.

This win marks the first FSGA championship for Hart, while Brower, an FSGA Hall of Fame member, picks up her 13th FSGA victory and her third Four-Ball title.

Brower and Hart began the championship with a 2-over 74 in Saturday’s first round. The pair finished the day with four birdies and one shot back of the first-round leaders: Kim Keyer-Scott / Jodi Sullivan and Carolyn Creekmore / Laura Carson.

The duo of Brower and Hart began the final round with a 1-over front side, with a birdie from Brower on the fifth. Brower and Hart carded back-to-back birdies to start out the back side. They added another birdie on the day to card a final round-71, the only under-par score of the weekend.

Brower and Hart secured the two-shot victory with a 1-over 145 for the championship.
