Monday Night Duals
Players are flighted by handicap and play match play each week against a different opponent. No strokes are figured at the beginning of the match. If you win a hole you give a stroke on the next hole, if you tie the hole no strokes are given on the next hole. It’s a great format and ensures that you have a competitive match and also meet new people each week. The league also features a season kickoff and season-ending “shoot out” that is always great fun.

2023 Land-Air League format
Business has never been such a pleasure! Teams consist of four players representing an Alamogordo business or just a group of friends. Teams can have up to three alternates so they can field a team that fits the format each week. The Leagues starts in mid-April and lasts until the end of August. Each week the format is changed and rotated between 5 different formats so the play never gets boring.
Teams earn three points for finishing first, two points for finishing second and one point for finishing third. At the end of the year, the teams with the most points win credits in the Golf Shop. But the fun doesn’t stop! There’s also a separate weekly cash pool: each player pays $10 into the weekly cash pool. The weekly cash pool is divided among the best team, low net, low gross score and low net and low gross skins.
