Scoring Format

Spark is a recreational golf league focused on having fun. Part of the fun is friendly competition. We aim to keep the competition fair and enjoyable for everyone, no matter their skill level.

Each round has two games happening for all players - a team game and an individual game. In the team game, 2-person teams play a net best ball format. Each player plays their own ball into the hole. This is NOT a scramble. After each ball is holed, the team enters each player’s gross (actual) score into the Spark app which calculates the net score for each player based on current handicaps. The team score used for the hole is the better of the 2 net scores. The individual game is the net score for each player on their own ball.

Net double bogey is the max score for each hole. If this is reached prior to the ball being holed, the player should pick up to increase pace of play.

Skins will also be available each round. A skin is awarded to an individual who has the lowest non-tied, net score on a hole during the round.

Spark Handicaps

The number of Spark strokes a player receives is based on what the player selects for their good 9-hole score. Spark then assigns a specific number of Spark strokes based on this table:

Shoots around 36 for 9 holes0 Spark strokes
Shoots around 39 for 9 holes3 Spark strokes
Shoots around 42 for 9 holes6 Spark strokes
Shoots around 45 for 9 holes9 Spark strokes
Shoots 48+ for 9-holes12 Spark strokes

A "stroke" provides a player an advantage on a specific hole by reducing their actual or "gross" score to calculate their "net" score on that hole.

Example - If a player makes a gross 5 on a hole where they are receiving a stroke, their net score is 4.

Each player’s Spark strokes will be applied to their 9-hole round starting with the lowest handicap hole on the course’s scorecard.

Example - If a player is receiving 3 Spark strokes, they will get a stroke on the 3 lowest handicap holes of the nine.

The max number of Spark strokes for a round is 18. Players are awarded strokes on holes based on the lowest handicap holes. For example, a 12-stroke player receives 2 strokes on the 3 lowest handicap holes and 1 stroke on the remaining 6 holes.

The number of Spark strokes a player gets will be recalculated after each round. The number of strokes they receive fluctuates based on league scores. Spark calculates this by taking the average number of strokes over par from the best 2 rounds of the player’s last 5 rounds. When a player only has one round played, their Spark strokes will be the average of the score over par in that round plus their good 9-hole score. Once a player has played 2 or more rounds, their good 9-hole score has no impact on their Spark strokes.
