How the Tour Works

Most tournaments are 18-hole events played on Weekend mornings.  Some tournaments have afternoon starts.  Most tournaments are stroke play, but some have different playing formats.

You are not obligated to play in all of the tournaments and you only pay for the one’s that you participate.  Register for as many or as few of the tournaments as you wish, but be sure to complete your registration by the deadlines noted.  All entries received before the deadline are guaranteed entry into the tournament.

“Initial” registration may be done in person or by e-mail to the Tour office, however, registration is not “complete” until the entry fee has been received by the Tour office.

The cost of entering the tournaments takes care of the greens fees.  Most events require carts and this is included in the cost.  (If carts are not required, then players may walk or may purchase power carts at their expense at the time of the event).

Once registered, your entry will be confirmed by e-mail and then all you have to do is show up ready to play.  Tee times will be posted on-line at www.themulligantour.com a few days before the tournament.

A pairings / tee sheet will be in the clubhouse at each tournament – verifying your start time, tee number, playing format, and any on-course challenges (long drive, closest-to-the-pin, etc.).

Register at any time before the deadline.

Registration for all of the tournaments can begin by April 1st or as early as the web page is available. 

Register for a tournament by sending an e-mail to The Mulligan Tour  at entry@themulligantour.com

And then mail check (payable to “Mulligan Tour Holdings") for the entry fee to:

Chuck Withey
Mulligan Tour Holdings
123 E Walled Lake Dr
Walled Lake, MI 48390

See the Rules and Regulations for details about the playing rules.

All players earn a Mulligan Tour Handicap Index (MTHI).  A temporary MTHI is achieved after 3 events and a mature MTHI is attained after playing in 6 events.  The MTHI is based solely on the scoring record in Mulligan Tour events.

The player’s membership fees fund the tournament purses and the costs of the trophies, and other prizes.

Courses, entry fees, or dates are subject to change if there are conflicts with the golf course.

See the Player's Handbook for advice and help with procedures

 

The tournaments

There are regional divisions with several regular season tournaments in each and a division championship.  There are other tournaments that are independent of the divisions (i.e. the majors).  Members do not formally join one division.  In fact, members may play in any tournament regardless of division.  Note however, that playing mainly in one division will improve that player’s standing on that division’s Money Standings.

During each tournament data is recorded on the different playing statistics.  The stats are maintained and published during the tour season.

Driving Accuracy (FH) – A percentage of fairways hit per number of fairway holes.

            A fairway is hit when a tee shot comes to rest on the fairway.

Greens in Regulation (GiR) – A percentage of greens hit per 18 holes.

            A green is hit when a player reaches the putting surface:

- in 3 strokes or less on a par 5 hole

- in 2 strokes or less on a par 4 hole

- with the tee shot on a par 3 hole

Putting (P) – Average number of putts required per 18 holes

            A putt is any stroke taken when the ball is on the putting surface (the fringe is not included)

Net scoring average – Average net score for 18 holes.

Net eagles – Average number of net eagles per 18 holes (triangle).

Net birdies – Average number of net birdies per 18 holes (circle).

 

For each tournament, the scorecards are provided to players already formatted to document the statistics.  Also the scorecards are already prepared with the “strokes given” on each hole.

A typical scorecard might look like this:

(Example of a player that gets 23 strokes for the tournament - 12 on the front and 11 on the back)
