Location:
The leagues home course is Knob Hill Community Park in Warrendale PA. Every 4th or 5th round, the league will travel to an alternative course for play. The location of each weeks round will be posted on the schedule. Upon request from the PFD, the leagues playing location for a given week may be adjusted to accommodate specific PFD activities. The schedule that is posted is current but is subject to be adjusted. Although not expected, please look for any updates that may be posted
Time:
Start time is 10:00 am so please arrive by 9:45 for registration. We reserve the right to adjust the start time to accommodate the PFD, players, and the league commissioner when required. Please check the Pittsburgh Sunday Devotional league website to confirm location and time.
Entry Fees:
Each player wishing to participate in the Sunday Devotional must pay an entry fee.
Entry Fee: $4
PFD Fee: $1
PDGA Fee: $1
Total Entry Fee = $6
Optional Ace Pot = $1
From the Entry Fee, $1 from each player each week played will be set aside for the overall point series payouts at year end.
Divisions:
Players can decide to play in different divisions on a week by week basis, but points earned will remain in each division played.
Tee Assignments:
Unfortunately due to PDGA guidelines all divisions must play the same tees in a given week to be sanctioned. We will make this as accommodating as possible for all divisions. Please refer to the news section for an overview of tee assignments for each given week.
Points:
Players will compete in the division of their choice and will accumulate 1 point for each week played, and 1 point for each player they beat or tie within their division (points won in each division are counted separately). Each player's top 20 rounds played will earn you points towards your division. Anyone with at least 10 weeks played will earn a 50 point bonus. At least 15 rounds played 75 point bonus. 20 or more rounds played 100 point bonus. The person who plays the most rounds will earn the title of "2020 Devotee" and earn a 150 point bonus for the playoffs. Double Points weeks will occur once every 3 weeks and during travel rounds to encourage a higher turnout. During these weeks players accumulate 2 points for each week played and 2 points for each player they beat or tie within their division
Weekly Payouts:
Weekly Payouts will follow PDGA standard payout tables. All divisons will be paid out cash. $1 from each round will be kept for year end points series winnings.
The ace pot is capped at $200. Once the ace pot exceeds $200, a separate reserve ace pot is created.
The league will run a total of (27) Sunday's with the final week being playoff's. The final playoff will be 2 rounds. The format and point systems for the playoffs are currently to be determined.

Division suggested PDGA ratings for this league:
Open 925+
Advanced 850-925
Intermediate 850 & below
If you're on the fringe I recommend playing up.
