Guidelines for Ringers Challenge

The purpose of the Ringers Competition is to reward improvement of play. This is a year-long flighted event taking place on three courses: Lion’s Paw, Panther’s Run and Tiger's Eye. Flights will be determined by the Ringers Committee using the October 1st (of the current award year) USGA handicap of the participating players. All participants must have 5 or more scores recorded per course to be eligible for the Best Ringer score awards and a minimum of 3 or more birdies or chip-ins per course to be eligible for most in a flight.

The challenge in the Ringers Competition is for each player to improve their GROSS scores on each hole over the course of the year. The Ringers score is the total of the lowest scores on each hole for each of the courses. The more you play, the better your chances!


Competition for Ringers awards shall begin on November 1st and end on October 31st of the following year during ORLGA play only. ORLGA play is defined as Monday and Wednesday weekly play, Wednesday PALS, Monday PALS 9, the President’s Cup Competition, the first day of the various Ringers tournaments, and the ORLGA Ladies Club Championship tournament. The Ringers participants must maintain a valid USGA handicap, must pay the $40.00 annual ORLGA dues and the $10.00 Ringers fee by February 1st of each year.


On ORLGA play days the game coordinators will place the Ringers box for that course on the game meeting table. As the Ringer participants come in, they will record their Ringer score on their Ringers Competition Card. After the first 18 holes are recorded, participants will record only the improvements for each hole after each additional play day. Scores entered shall be GROSS scores only, NOT NET nor EQUITABLE STROKES. Shambles, Scrambles, Alternate Shots and other designated non-postable rounds of golf are not to be recorded on Ringers Competition Cards. It is the responsibility of the Ringers participants to record their scores as soon as possible after playing. If a participant is not available, a teammate may record the scores for them.

In addition to the gross scores, each participant shall record the date and the number of birdies and chip-ins on the back of the Ringers Card.


ORLGA AWARDS: Please mark on scorecard in red and report to the Ringers Committee Chair any milestones: Breaking 100, Breaking 90, Breaking 80, Breaking 70 for the first time in league….Natural Eagles….Hole in Ones

One set of game day score cards will be placed in the red leather pouch for Ringers located next to the computer at Tamers Pro shop.
