Scoring Format

Spark Golf leagues are recreational and 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.

The max score for each player on every hole is displayed in the Spark app. 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:

Good score of 36 of better0 Spark Strokes
Good score of 371 Spark Strokes
Good score of 382 Spark Strokes
Good score of 393 Spark Strokes
Good score of 404 Spark Strokes
Good score of 415 Spark Strokes
Good score of 426 Spark Strokes
Good score of 437 Spark Strokes
Good score of 448 Spark Strokes
Good score of 459 Spark Strokes
Good score of 4610 Spark Strokes
Good score of 4711 Spark Strokes
Good score of 48 or worse12 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.
