S&H Seniors Golf League

Chip-in Pot

A Chip-in Pot is open to all members during all Open Play and Special Events except for the Scramble and the 2-Flight Scramble events. However, members are only eligible to record chip-ins during their first 9-hole round of golf on any day when there is a Chip-in Pot.
Chip-in Any member’s ball that is struck from off the green (putting surface) and results in the ball coming to rest in the cup is a chip in. However, after a member’s ball first comes to rest on the green, that member is no longer eligible for a chip-in on that hole. The "first cut" area bordering the green is not considered on the green. Chip-ins must be properly recorded on the scorecard by circling the member’s score on the hole that the chip-in was made, and having it initialed by one of the other members in the group. The number of chip-ins that a member can have is unlimited. Properly recorded chip-ins are awarded to members even if they didn't complete their round or they were disqualified because of a Special Event rules violation. Year-to-date chip-ins are posted on the SGC bulletin board and League’s website.
Prize Money
League registration fees provide the cash for Chip-in Pot prize money. The end of season Chip-in Pot is a fixed amount determined by the League Committee before the season starts. The pot will be shared among the members who had chip ins during the season. Chip-in Pot prize money for one chip-in is equal to the annual Chip-in Pot divided by the number of chip-ins all members had during the season. Fractions of a dollar are rounded to the next highest dollar.

All Chip-in Pot prize money is paid to members at the Awards Banquet. Prize money winners who are not present at the Awards Banquet must claim their money prior to November 1st with a current ID. Unclaimed prize money will be forfeited and will revert to the League treasury. Detailed instructions on where and when their prize money can be claimed will be included with the Awards Banquet reservation form.
