Flexibility is the name of the game. 

In order to make the final championship, you must register, pay the administrative fee,  and play 6 courses. When we say relaxed and social, we mean it. 6 out of 16 is a passing score in our books.

Throughout the season, we may introduce bonus games and mini-challenges with extra prizes and rewards. This is how we bribe you to pay attention throughout the season. You have an idea for one? Shoot us an email or post on our socials to get the convo started.

Triple Bogey Players

Non competitive play

If triple bogeys are your jam, then congrats! You've come to the right place. We're a relaxed social league so we've got you covered. Play from the Jr tees or 150 yards. Post your scores if you want or don't. Either way, it'll be fun! 

Max score on any hole is a triple bogey.

12/

Competitive much?

Go to the rules page for all the down and dirty deets on scoring, points, & handicaps. We'll be here when you're done. 

13/

Scores, Handicaps, & Tracking

Our league secretary made an awesome spreadsheet to track all the stats course by course so get those scores up as fast as possible so you can look at your ranking in all of its splendid glory until the next player posts their score and knocks you down a notch.

14/

Why does it cost $200 just to sign up?

20% of that fee goes to the league because websites, graphic designers, league managers, software, fees, and staff cost money. As much as we just want to hang out and swing some clubs with you, we still need to cover our costs.  The balance goes toward the prize pool.  So, the more of your friends you convince to join this league, the more money you can win at the end.

What even is a YEM?

If you know, you know.

Boy. Man. Golf. Shit.
