Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club is a Sunset Ranch members' only group that plays early Saturday mornings. It is a great way to get out and meet other members while enjoying an early morning Saturday tee time. To sign up for this week's Breakfast Club contact the Pro Shop or sign up on the sheet located in the Pro Shop.

Breakfast Club Format

The Breakfast Club format is a version of the 'Chicago' game and is called "39".

Each player will subtract their course handicap from 39 and the resultant number is that player's "hurdle" they must overcome. Points are awarded on each hole based on GROSS scores and all points earned are deducted from the players "hurdle".

For example a player with a 12 handicap would have a hurdle of 27 (39-12). All points scored are deducted from the 27 on the following gross scores:
  • Double Bogie or worse = 0 points
  • Bogie = 1 point
  • Par = 2 points
  • Birdie = 3 points
  • Eagle = 4 points

The goal is to finish the 18-hole round with the lowest number of points.

The golfer(s) with the lowest number of points for the day will each receive 10 points towards their Breakfast Club season scoring record. The golfer(s) with the second lowest points for the day will each receive 9 points. This continues through 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 points.
