Golf Fines

Golf Fines:

The Golf fines for the Sultans of Swing Golf Tour were created to make sure that everybody has a purpose to play until the very end of the round. Here is a list of the golf fines that are awarded (and sometimes rewarded) to players taking part in the SOS Golf Tour.

Green and yellow fines not awarded during a game are to be taken by the Chairman. Red and black fines, as well as FUBAR fines are not fines the Chairman needs to take. If the golf fine is not awarded for 6 rounds in a row, the Chairman will no longer need to take that fine and it will be removed from the standard fines and become an anti-fine.

Golf Fines

Green Fines 1/4 Beer Prop/Prize
3 Putt Making three putts, from on or off the green. Fireman Hat*
Wetty Last player in the water in each four ball gets the wetty fine. A ball landing in a water hazard that is “dry” still count as a wetty tee, but standing rain water does not.
Woody The last player in a four ball to hit a tree, leaf or branch attached to a rooted tree.
Sandy The last player in the four ball to end up in a bunker
Greensill This is awarded to any player caught urinating on the course. A quarter beer for each infraction.
Yellow Fines 1/2 Beer Prop
Gaugeler This is for a player losing your temper on the golf course. Swearing does not constitute a Gaugeler, but acting in an unsportsman like manner does. Swearing loud enough for golfers in another four ball to hear you would be considered a Gaugeler.
Hitler For the golfer who does not get out of the bunker.
Fellowship of the rings 4 rings or more in a round.
Back to the Future (BTF) When your ball finishes behind where you start from. This usually happens when the player hits a tree, but other objects have proved just as effective at giving the player a back to the future.
Beach Party This is punishment for hitting from one bunker to another.
Surf’s Up Hitting out of the bunker and into the water.
Mario Cart Taking a cart when the rest of the Tour walks. This fine is also for those golfers who choose to use a push trolley.
Toilet A player may not leave the table during fines meeting without the Chairman’s permission, or they can take half a beer to go to the loo.
Red Fines Full Beer Prop
Lady’s Tee This is for a player who fails to clear the ladies tee with their drive, or any subsequent shot after the drive. (See rules about OB and Hazards)
4 Putt This is for making the magic four putts. Even if you start by putting from off the green. Every stroke there after counts as a putt. Fireman Hat
Nappy Fine As we use the Stableford Scoring System for the SOS Golf Tour, if a player scores more than five points difference between their front and back nine, they are rewarded a full beer.
Lord of the Rings Everyone with more than four rings is part of the Fellowship. The player with the most rings is the Lord of the rings. He must have his half beer for fellowship and his full beer for being Lord. Gandolf Hat
Lost Balls For every four golf balls you lose in a round you must have a full beer. Bushveld Hat
Box Fine This fine is awarded to a player who walks between the markers of any tee box except their own.
Black Fines Chunky Charlie Prop
Tour Shirts Not wearing official SOS Golf Gear
Missing Fines Awarded at the next round – 1st tee
Senior’s Tee This is for not passing the seniors tee box.
Champion Finishing First in a round of SOS
Chump Finishing Last in a round of SOS
Freshie If a player attempts to play his golf ball and it does not move. If it moves and comes to rest in the same spot, that is not a freshie. A freshie is a complete miss.

Fines Master Fine This is a nominated fine for the day – by the round’s chosen fine’s master. The fine’s master is the player who finished in 13th place the round before. If there is a tie, the player with the lowest handicap is fine’s master.
The severity of the fine is determined by the Fine’s Master
