Scoring Format

The AGC Wide Open scoring format will be a “modified Peoria System.” No prior handicaps will be used or are necessary. This system is a one-day handicap program. The Peoria System chooses six holes on the course (unknown to the players) and counts how many strokes each golfer is over/under par. That total over/under par will be multiplied by three, then adjusted by 80% for your tournament day handicap. Maximum handicap given to a golfer under this system is a 36.

Skins Game

Skins is a golf game whereby the players compete for a prize on every hole. This prize is the “skin” and that skin is CASH! $60 from the registration fee will be put into the skins pot and divided among each winning hole. For the skins game, each hole is played separately, and is won by the player with the lowest score on the hole. If two or more players tie for the low score, the value of that skin carries over to the next hole, doubling its worth. Prizes will be determined after scorecards are turned in and awarded at the Famous Friday Reception.
