Cup Matches

In the past, we've had six flights for the Cup Matches broken down into 16 competitors in each.  Cup matches in flights 1-4 are played from the blue tees. Cup matches in flights 5 and 6 are played from the white tees, however competitors (both or either) can agree to move back to the blue tees.
If competing from different tee boxes, the white tee player's course handicap (from the white tees) should be decreased by two per USGA guidelines (and be compared against the blue tee player's blue tee course handicap).

In the past, we've had four flights for the Senior Cup Matches.  Senior Cup Matches in flights 1-3 are played from the blue tees. Flights 4 (and 5 if applicable) are played from the white tees,
