2018 Men's League Information

League Meeting on Thursday May 17 at 6:00.  We encourage ALL to attend, as we introduce you to all of the concepts of this new league format.  

Here is just a brief introduction to the new league format:   This format is a TENTATIVE format!

You MUST play on the designated league night.  If you can not play that night, you need to find a sub or a "ghost score" will be given to you for that night.  You can NOT get together with the team you are paired with and decide to play on another day.

A league handicap will be calculated using the best 1/2 of all previous league scores.  

Example:  
Week 1 handicap will be figured from that night's score
Week 2 handicap will be figured from week 1 score
Week 3 handicap will be the best of league 1 and 2 scores  
Week 4 handicap will be the best of 2 scores of week 1, 2, and 3  
Week 5 handicap will be the best 2 of league 1, 2, 3 and 4 scores
Week 6 handicap will be the best 3 of league 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 scores, etc.

Each night your team will be playing all other teams in the league using these following formats:

** All "A" players will be matched against ALL other "A" players each week.   NET hole by hole is worth 9
    points and NET 9 hole total score worth 3 points.

** All "B" players will be matched against ALL other "B" players each week.   NET hole by hole worth 9    
    points and NET 9 hole total score worth 3 points.

** ALL Teams will be matched against ALL OTHER Teams counting BOTH scores.  NET hole by hole scores
    worth 9 points.

There is a total of 33 points that can be won against each team.  Your total points for the week will be 33 X the number of teams you are playing against.  (Example 18 teams in the league:  33 points X 17 teams = 561 points each week.)

The league will be divided into 2 halves.  At the end of  the 1st half, the top (?) teams will be paid and first half gift certificates will be given out.  We will then start over from scratch for the 2nd half of the league. However, 1st half league handicaps will carry over to the 2nd half of league.

To make the league run smoothly, it would be of great help if you:


**FIND YOUR OWN SUB from the list that will be posted in the Pro Shop.

**It is your responsibility to pay for your sub.
**Pay for the entire league up front ($98) or pay at the beginning of each session ($49)

1.  1st league date is Wednesday May 23.  There are 2 separate league sessions (7 weeks each) running
       through August 29.  No league during Fair Week July 11.

2.  Cost is $7 each week, plus a $7.50 green fee and $8.50 cart fee for non-members  (you do not have to    
      ride)

3.  Players meet around 4:30 to 5:00 to play their match.  If you need to start later than 5:00 on league  
      night, please let the pro shop know or contact your opponents.

4.  Your handicap will be based on your league scores, starting with the first league date.

5.   ANYONE 65 years of age or older on the first day of league can choose to play from the Blue Tees.        
       Whichever tees you decide to play from, at the beginning of league, will be the tees that you play from
       the entire league.  

6.  We will use an alternating schedule with the front and back nines.

7.  Each week we will pay cash to the low gross winner, low net winner, closest to the hole and both 
      gross and net skins (you can NOT win a Gross skin and Net Skin on the same hole).  The top two point  
      earning teams, each week, will earn money that will go toward a session end gift certificate.

8. The final week of play will be a shotgun start at 5:00This will be followed by a meal.

9. Please make sure the pro shop has your email address, as we will send out information about the          
     league from time to time.  Also, you will be able to see the league schedule and results on our website  
     as soon as we can post them after each night of league.  There will also be a website where you can      
     view ALL results from each night.  We will show you how to do this at our Thursday May 17 meeting.

10.  In the event of your round being stopped due to weather or another    
      circumstance, you need to return the scorecard to the pro shop and make  
      arrangements within the group to finish the round ASAP.
