San Carlos Squires Golf Ladder Rules


  • All participants mast be a member of San Carlos Squires
  • Must be a member of Squires N.C.G.A. golf club.
  • Must have paid Squires ladder entry fee of $10.
  • A participant can join but cannot challenge until he has established a Squires N.C.G.A. handicap.
  • Annual beginning ladder positions are determined by an initial drawing of numbered tokens.
  • A participant joining the ladder following the initial drawing automatically enters in last place.
  • Each participant improves his ladder position by challenging and scoring a lower net score than other participants challenged that are in a higher position on the ladder.
  • A participant challenging and having a lower net score than another participant higher on the ladder, will move ahead of challenged participant’s position. However, other winning challengers will affect  each challenger’s position on the ladder for the next tournament.
  • When 2 or more players challenge and beat (by scoring a lower net score) another player, the challenger that was previously higher on the ladder will remain higher than the others (i.e., players in positions 10 and 15 both challenge position 5 and beat him, position 10 challenger will be higher on the ladder than position 15 challenger.)
  • A player in a lower 1adder position will move above a higher position player if he challenges and beats an interim position player that the higher position player did not challenge and beat (i.e., position 10 and 15 both challenged and beat position 5, position 15 also challenged and beat position 7, and position 10 did not; then position 15 player will move above position 10 player).
  • Basically, the higher a position that a player challenges and beats, the higher position on the ladder he will attain for the next tournament.
  • A player, who does not participate in a tournament for whatever reason, will drop 5 spots, no more, no less.
  • As stated in 7-11, a player improves his position on the ladder by challenging and beating a player in a higher position on the ladder.. When a challenger does not beat players challenged with a lower net score, the challenger pays a $.50 fee for each ladder position between himself and the player(s) challenged. One half of the challenge fee is paid to the challenged player for defending his challenger. The other half accumulates in a pool during the tournament year for disbursement in prizes following the final tournament of the year (ladder championship).
  • Net scores, as determined by the handicap chairman are used to determine ladder positions. If a net score error occurs or if an error is made in establishing ladder positions following each tournament the match results will be recalculated after making the correction.
  • Challenges must be made before a tournament begins. Challenges may be made by email, telephone, text or in person. Acceptable challenges are: “all above”, “5 up”, “up to 13”, and “Carl, Joe and Scott”. Challenges do not have to be contiguous.
  • At the end of the year the pool will be divided among the top 5 finishers who have played at least 5 tournaments during the year as follows: 50%, 25%, 12.5%, 6.25%, 3.125%. Any money remaining in the pool will be carried over to the next year.s

Dues Are Due

Greetings Squires,

I hope your 2014 golf season with the San Carlos Squires was a great one.  I know it was for me.  We played some great courses this year as well as playing in our third Squires/Duffers Challenge, even though we fell short in winning the tournament.
The 2015 season is looking even better than last year.  Your board met last Wednesday in Belmont and we have have come up with some great changes that will make for more golfers winning prizes and just plain MORE FUN!  The full summary of the board meeting will come shortly.
In the mean time, its time to pay your dues for 2015.  The board decided that in order to supply our members with more prizes and more fun, we will need to increase the dues this year to $ 100 from our previous very low rate of $ 85.  Again this includes your annual NCGA membership as well.  Any new member coming in will pay $ 110.00.
There are a few ways you can pay.  One, you can mail your check to Carl Garbe, 810 Old Orchard Rd, Campbell, CA  95008.  Two, you could bring your check to Carl at the Christmas Party on Dec. 3rd, and that would be really easy.  In any event, we need your payment by Dec 15th to make sure you get registered with the NCGA.
Finally, I want to remind everybody that this club is run 100% by member volunteers who give up their otherwise busy schedule to put in time to run this club.  I want to acknowledge all of you who have put in your time to make this club the success it has been this year, and I want to especially thank all the officers and board members who consistently put in extra time to make sure our tournaments run smoothly every month. Thank you so much for your efforts this year.  I, as president , appreciate it.
I hope to see all of you at this year’s Christmas Dinner at the Van’s in Belmont ( invitations should be on the way) on Dec. 3rd.  Until then, I wish the best to all.
Rick Lemos, President

Board Meeting November 12, 2014

There was a San Carlos Squires Board of Directors meeting Wednesday night, November 12, 2014.  Several issues were discussed and voted on.  Here are the highlights.

Dues –
Dues will be raised to $100/year for returning members and $110/first year for new members.  Dues are due by December 15.  If your dues are not received by December 15th, your name will not be forwarded to NCGA as a continuing member and  you will pay $110 if you wish to rejoin.  The additional  dues will be used to host one or more after tournament events.

Flights –
We will expand to three flights this year.  In addition, the flights will be flexible, depending on the the number and distribution of players.  For example, if we have 30 players, each flight will be ten players.  If we have 33 players, there will be eleven in each flight.  Players on the cusp may find themselves competing in the first flight in one tournament and the second flight in the next.

Alternate Payment Methods –
We are looking into ways of accepting credit cards and debit cards for tournament signups for the convenience of our members.  Cash or check only was deemed to restrictive this past year.

Election of Officers –
The board has nominated a slate of officers for the coming year.  If you would like to serve as one of the four officers, please let Alex ( know.  The nominees by the board are: Rick Lemos, President, Dennis Agresti, Vice President, Alex Phillips, Secretary, and Carl Garbe, Treasurer.

Members Meeting –
There will be a members meeting in early February, before the first tournament, time, place and date to be determined.  All rules, processes and the  tournament schedule will be covered.

Thanks for your attention.
