Beginning in May of 2023
Rivers Edge will be hosting a Spark Golf Event every Tuesday at 5pm.
Every Tuesday River’s Edge welcomes Spark Golf a social 9-Hole Golf League. We are not affiliated with Spark Golf but are happy to offer times on our course with a welcoming format and relaxed rules
No Handicap Required
Handicaps help to level the playing field among players of all abilities. Spark provides you a handicap when you join. Your handicap will fluctuate based on your Spark scores.
Pick It Up
The Spark Golf app calculates a max score for each player on each hole. So if you’re stuck in a bunker, can’t get it over the water or are just having a bad hole – don’t worry! Pick it up, take the max score and go to the next hole.
Nobody likes to grind over a 3-footer! So if it’s inside 3 feet (the typical length of a putter), pick it up – it’s good. Make sure to count gimmies as a stroke in your score for the hole.
Play It Up
Did you bomb it right down the fairway only to have your ball end up in a divot? Well, that’s no fun! Don’t worry, in Spark Golf, you can move the ball and give yourself a good lie anytime you’re in the fairway.
Just Drop One
Did you hit one out of bounds or can’t find your ball? Under traditional rules, you should go back to where you hit from, add a penalty stroke and hit again – yikes! That doesn’t sound like fun and slows down play, so we do it differently. In Spark Golf, you can just drop a ball near where it was lost or went out of bounds, add a penalty stroke, and play on.
