Pinehurst: The Chippers —- Looking for a fun contest for your ladies’ association? Look right here. It is a team game with points won for bad shots. Here’s how it works: A water ball equals one point, out-of-bounds equals one point, bunker equals one point, failure to get out in one stroke equals one point, three putts equals one point, hit a tree equals one point, going from one bunker into another on the same hole equals two points, and on and on.
A par or a chip-in on a hole by any team player eliminates all previous points the team has accumulated. The team with the fewest points wins. Players keep their gross score separately for handicap purposes.
