$1,000 Simulator Team Challenge

Tee it up in the $1,000 Simulator Team Challenge at Inside Edge Golf simulators! Men, Womens and Senior (55+) Divisions.

Q1. How does it work?
A1. Step 1 is to CLICK HERE to register a team (free to register) or signup as a single and we’ll find you a playing partner. Then simply play as a 2-Person Team anytime between November 13th and January 1st. Format is 2-Person Scramble playing Pebble Beach Golf Links on the Inside Edge Golf simulators.

Q2. How much does it cost?
A2. No cost to register a team. When you play, it’s a discounted $15/hr per person rate (normally $20) for the simulator time with a portion of that revenue going towards the Prize Pool (so the more players we have, the bigger the pot grows!). Minimum $1,000 overall prize pool guaranteed.

Q3. What is the Payout?
A3. The total Prize Pool will be determined by the total number of rounds played with a guaranteed MINIMUM $1,000 in payouts. Prizes awarded in each division (Mens, Womens, Seniors 55+).

Q4. Which Placements Win?
A4. Team payouts in each division for 10th to last, 50th, 40th, 30th, 20th, 11th and 1st thru 5th so EVERYONE who tees it up has a chance to win! The top 10 teams in each division will compete in a Playoff in January for 1st through 5th payouts.
12/11/17 UPDATE: Due to the much higher than expected response, we are updating the payout structure to the top 100 teams will advance to a playoff round to determine the placement payouts. Monday thru Thursday playoff rounds will be free – play Friday thru Sunday at normal $15/hr per person rate. We’re adding in a bonus SKINS payout (optional – $10pp to participate) for the playoff round as well!

Q5. How Do I Register a Team?
A5. CLICK HERE to register your team (it’s free).

Q6. How Do I Play?
A6. Simply book a tee time at Inside Edge Golf simulators (in Eden Prairie) via their website at www.InsideEdgeGolf.com. You may play as many qualifying rounds as you’d like. The more you play, the better your chances of winning. Team may qualify for multiple placement payouts. Play with the same or different partners each round. When you play, the discounted rate per person is $15/hr per person for the simulator time. 2 golfers can play 18 holes in 1.5 to 2 hours. Be sure to mention when you go into Inside Edge Golf that you are playing a $1,000 Simulator Team Challenge round so they can give you a scorecard and setup the round at Pebble Beach with the correct settings. Many teams will play multiple rounds in the same day (just ask for a new scorecard after each round) because 18 holes can be played in 90 minutes or less. Payment is by time so play as many rounds daily as you’d like. You may play immediately after REGISTERING your team.

Q7. Is this event in USGA compliance with amateur rules?
A7. Yes. All payouts are as gift cards with none exceeding the maximum allowable gift card amount.

Q8. How does the Playoff work for the top 10 scoring teams?
A8. On January 2nd, we’ll announce the top 100 teams who will be invited back in for a playoff round. This playoff round (playing as foursomes for score verification) will determine 1st through 5th placements (and payouts) and 11th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th. This playoff system protects scoring integrity as qualifying rounds are played unsupervised and will create a dramatic finish for the contestants. Top 100 teams will receive email instructions on January 2nd.

Q9. What Do I After I Register a Team?
A9. Step 1 is book a tee time online at www.InsideEdgeGolf.com. When you check in to Inside Edge Golf, ask the front desk staff for a $1,000 Sim Challenge Scorecard. The scorecard has the qualifying rounds settings (playing Pebble Beach from white tees, novice pins, 6 foot gimmes). Once finished with your round, turn in your scorecard to the front desk and pay. The fee for Sim Challenge players is $15/hr per person (so $30/hr for the sim). A portion of each hour is used for the prize pool. Remind the IEG staff at checkout that you played a $1,000 Sim Challenge round so they can ring in the reduced hourly rate ($15/hr per person = $30/hr per stall).

Q10. Who can play?
A10. ANYONE can play and win with our unique payout system. You do not need to be a TwinCitiesGolf member to play.
