what do you know? I actually found a file that had copies of the rules/flyers in it! They are the rules from '03...woo hoo! Imagoodgolfer. LOL
Anyway here is what we did:
Tags were $20 ($35 for non-club members...and you got to become a KCFDC member).
-Tags must hang visibly from our person/bag at all times when on the course.
-Anyone can challenge anyone.
-Lowest overall score in a challenge gets the lowest tag number.
-Ties result in a push.
-No Doubles and Skins (challenges are based on individuals overall score)
-Challenges must be played on the same course with the same layout as the person you are challenging.
-Mandatory to accept challenges during local events (leagues and tourneys).
-If 2 tags are on a card, there is an on-card challenge.
-Only one challenge outside of your card per round.
-Settle card challenges first (off card challenges second)
-Must play in 1 club event a month.
-Must participate in the Club Championships.
-Top 5 tags must play in 1 club event every two weeks. (once a week the last month of the season).
Pay out was for top 3 tags at the end of the year.
Had prizes at local tourneys throughout the year.
Option of Commerative tags.
no luck yet on newer tag rules, but if I remember correctly (and chances are that I do not), we pretty much kept them the same. I think we added a $1 charge to every challenge (winner gets $1). I could go on an on for the reasons behind rules and what-not....but basically we wanted to keep the cost of the tags reasonable, and to keep people playing and participating in the challenges while keeping the rules as simple as possible, and hopefully raise some money for course improvements. If I come across newer rules I'll post them here.
it's really a cool gig, and if you've got someone/some people who play a lot and have the time to dedicate to running it it can be a ton of fun. Even without someone paying a lot of attention, the players have a great time with the added 'challenge' and smack talk that goes along with it (at least I did).
