Sunset Ranch Ladies League Ringer Board

What is it?

The Ringer Board is a friendly competition among fellow Sunset Ranch Ladies League players. The challenge is for each player to improve their gross scores on each hole over a set period of time from a specific set of tees. The Ringer Board will display your first best gross score for each hole as the season progresses. Your Ringer scorecard is the total of the lowest scores on each hole at the end of the season. The more you play the better your chances.

How is it played?

Each hole score on the first day of the Ringer competition, becomes your baseline score. . After the first 18 holes are recorded, only improved scores for each hole after each day of play are recorded. The competition will be GROSS scores only and NOT NET scores.

For example, if you score a 7 on hole #1 on your first day of Ringers play, then 7 is your baseline score for hole #1. If, on another league day, you score a 5 on hole #1, then 5 would be entered as your new best score and remain there until you score better than a 5. If you then score a 4 on hole #1, the 5 would be replaced with the 4. At the end of the season the Ringer Board would then show your best score for each hole played during the competition season.

The Ringer Board is a year round competition that starts in May and continues to the Thursday before the club championship. You may start any time after the beginning of May. You do not have to play a minimum number of holes for your score to count towards the Ringer Board.

E.g. First handicap is 20 and the last handicap is 18 the average is 19. 19 will be used to calculate the net Ringer score.

Ringer Board Example

In the above example Ringer Board, the top (black) numbers are the baseline scores. The red numbers are the improved scores. Sue has a GROSS score for the Ringer competition of 90 and Mary has a Gross score of 76. The average handicap will be subtracted from this figure to establish the final Ringer score. Sue did not improve her score on holes # 4,6,13 and 16 so the baseline score is counted for those holes.
