The Alderbrook Men’s Club Welcomes you
The Alderbrook Men’s Club was formed in the early 1970s for the purpose of providing good competitive golfing activities and is open to all men, 18 years or older who are members of Alderbrook Golf. It offers a great way to get to know your neighbors and enjoy friendly games of golf.
Current officers and contact information are listed in the Men’s Club section of the Alderbrook members only website. Men’s Club competition is played on Wednesdays and Fridays, with Saturday play available to working members who register their status at the Pro Shop. Wednesdays have a shotgun start and members make their own tee times for Friday competitions.
Note: On Wednesday’s during the golf season the Men’s Club has a “Back Nine” tee time for those members only wishing to play nine holes.
The games for Men’s Club competition are set by the Captain and are listed on the calendar tab of this webpage. It is also posted on the Men’s Club Board in the Clubhouse. Competitions are $5 which includes KP’s.
Monthly meetings are usually held before play on the first Wednesday of the month. Drink tickets are provided at the meeting.
The Men’s Club also sponsors the sale of personalized bricks for the Clubhouse entryway and patio. Proceeds are used to fund special projects for AGYC. Please contact Michael Johnston if you are interested in purchasing a brick.

Alderbrook Men’s and Ladies Club Formats
Note: In all formats, strokes will fall on the holes according to each player’s handicap
- 1-2-3 Best Ball: Teams of four players, scores one net ball on holes 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16; two net balls on holes 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17; and three net balls on holes 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18.
- 3’s – 4’s – 5’s: After all groups have teed off, the golf shop will select two par-3’s, five par-4’s and 2 par-5’s to be used for scoring. 9-Holers will have one par-3, one par-5 and 3 par-4’s chosen.
- 3-Clubs and a Putter: Pick three clubs and play the entire round only using those clubs, and your putter.
- Front or Back Nine: After all groups have teed off, the golf shop will flip a coin to choose whether scoring will be used from the back-9 or the front-9. 9-holers will be playing medal play for the back-9.
- Blind Holes: After all players have teed off, the golf shop will draw 9-holes to be used for scoring. 9-Holers will have 5 holes chosen.
- Blind Partner: This is a 2-Person Best Ball format where teams are selected after all players have teed off. Players will not know their partner until they turn in their scorecards after the round.
- Bridgeman Best Ball: Teams of three or four will play a best ball format where one net ball is counted on holes #1-6, two best balls on holes #7-12 and three best balls on holes #13-18.
- Chapman: This is a 2-person format where each player tees off, then the players switch balls and hit their partner’s ball. After the 2nd shots are hit, teams will then select which ball they want to continue play with and will play the remainder of that hole alternating shots. The keep is that players will never hit the same ball twice in a row. Penalty strokes will not alter the order of play. Team handicaps will be computed using 40% of the higher handicapper’s course handicap and 60% of the lower handicapper’s course handicap.
- Combined Score of Partners: This is a 2-person format where both player’s net score will be added together to create a team score on each hole.
- Drop 3 (also Drop 4 or Drop 5): Each player plays the entire round and at the end of the round their worst 3 (or 4 or 5), in relation to par, will be reduced to net pars.
- Eclectic (ongoing): Over a pre-determined number of rounds, scores for each player will be created using their best scores on each hole. The best scores are then added together to create their final score.
- Flag Day: Each player had a target score, which is created by adding the player’s course handicap to par (72 for 18-holers & 36 for 9-holers). After you hit your target score you will plant your flag at the spot where your ball comes to rest. If your final shot lands out of the fairway, you will plant your flag in the fairway equal distant to where that ball was. If your final score goes out of bounds you will place your flag at the point where you hit that shot. If you haven’t reached your target score by the time you hole out on #18, you will continue on to hole #1 and plant your flag once you’ve reached your target score.
- Hidden Holes: After all players have teed off, the golf shop will draw one hole from each nine and that score will be subtracted from your total score.
- Least Putts: Count only the number of putts during your round. Putts are considered strokes that are made from the putting green only. Strokes using your putter from off of the green do not count.
- Manning Low Ball: A team of four scores the best two net balls on each hole. Each player must score a minimum of eight times (four times for 9-Holers)
- Match vs Par: Players are competing against Old Man Par, matching their net score against par on each hole. Scoring is +1 for each hole you beat par, 0 for holes you tie par and -1 for holes you lose to par. Your combined total will be your final score.
- Modified Waltz: Teams of four players will use one best ball on the par-5’s, two best balls on the par-4’s and three best balls on the par-3’s.
- Monthly Medalist: Each month there will be one winner from each division (18-Gold, 18-Green & 9-Gold), with players playing medal play, will be eligible to compete in the end of the season Monthly Medalist Playoff.
- Most Pars: Each player plays their full round and scoring +1 for a net par or better and 0 points for any holes that are over a net par.
- Mutt & Jeff: Scores are only used on the Par-4’s and Par-5’s.
- No Alibi: Instead of deducting handicaps, players will receive a mulligan for ¾ of their course handicap. Any replayed shots MUST be used, even if it is worse than the original shot. Scores from this format cannot be posted for handicap purposes.
- Odd or Even: After players have teed off, the golf shop will flip a coin to choose whether odd or even holes will be scored.
- N.E.S.: Use only holes that begin with the letters O, N, E or S.
- POINTS: This is a Stableford Scored format. Points are earned on each hole with the following system: Double Bogey or worse is 0 points, Bogey is 1 point, Par is 2 points, Birdie is 3 points and Eagle or better is 4 points.
- Scotch Doubles: Two Person teams. Each player tees off on the 1st hole, the team then selects the ball they wish to continue with and play alternate shot for the rest of the round. If player A holes out, then player B will tee off on the next hole. Team handicaps will be 50% of each players course handicap.
- Scramble (No-Follow): All players tee off. The team then selects the drive and plays the second shot from that spot. If your drive was selected, you are not allowed to hit the second shot. The same ‘No Follow’ rule applies until the team is on the putting green. Once on the putting green all players are allowed to putt. Each player is required to use one drive per 9-holes.
- Best Nine: Players will drop their worst 9 holes in relation to par. 9-Holers will drop their worst 5 holes.
- String Tournament: Each player will receive a string that is measured out based on their course handicap. Each stroke of handicap will equal one foot of string. The player may move their ball, at any time, using whatever string they have left. This includes on the putting green and into the hole. When a player moves the ball, they must cut off that much of their string, and can do this until their string has been used up. Moving your ball with the string does not count as a stroke.
- T’s & F’s: Scores from only the holes that begin with the letter ‘T’ or ‘F’ will be counted.
- Tee to Green: Players will count only their shots that are used to get their ball onto the putting green. Strokes made from the putting green will not count toward their score.
