A Flight in golf is used to place golfers in a division based on their skills. A player would only play against other players within his or her flight. This assures a player is playing against players of the same skill level. A golfer's handicap is the normal method to determine a player's flight. For example, Flight A is all players with a 8 handicap and lower. Flight B is all players with a 9 handicap or greater and below or equal to a 16 handicap.
"Flight Scoring" awards points based on where a player placed in his/her flight after the round of golf. The player with the lowest net score in their flight is awarded the highest point value.
The point value can be determine a few different ways. 1) The number of players in the flight that played that round is the point value. 2) A fixed point value.
The points awarded can be modified to match each league's own point system.
