Teams

Each National Team is made up of 2 person teams in two age Divisions with four Flights per Division. The Senior Division is for players 55 years of age and older. The Open Division is for players under 55. A player 55 or older may play in the Open Division.

Flights

Each Division is made up of four flights based on Team Index. Each flight is as follows.

Championship Flight

4.9 and under

A Flight

5.0 – 9.9

B Flight

10.0 – 14.9

C Flight

15.0 and above

Team Index

Team Index is determined by totaling the handicap index of player A and player B together and dividing it in half. Example – Player A has a 10 index and player B has a 15 index totaling 25. Divide the total of 25 in half and the team index is 12.5. That team would be in the “B” Flight.

Handicap Differential

No team can have an index differential of more than 8 points between teammates. Example – a player that is a 10 index cannot play with a player that is a 24 index, unless that player drops his index down from a 24 to an 18.
