Hello Ladies – we are looking forward to Ladies League this year and hope that you are ready for some great golf (Ok – any golf is good !) and socializing with friends new and old !! We are keeping some things that people liked last year and tweaking some other things that didn’t exactly work out as planned. Here are the highlights:
Shotgun Start: We will continue with a 5:00 p.m. shotgun start each Wednesday, starting on May 22nd.
12 Weeks: League will again be 12 weeks, with 2 weeks of Team playoffs at the end of the season. We start on May 22nd and go to August 28th. (See calendar.)
Two Competitions in One: We will have both Flighted Individual competition (same as before), as well as Team Competition (A,B,C,D). The teams will be selected by the Pro Shop in advance based on handicaps and Flight. The playoffs at the end of the season will be to determine winners of Team Competition only. Individual winners will be decided by Stableford points (same as always).
Scoring: We will continue to use Stableford points. All cards must be turned in to the Pro Shop who will do all scoring for you each week (no math !!) and provide a printout to Karen. Also, we will be taking your 10 Best Scores from the 12 weeks to determine flight winners. Finally, please record your putts each week on each hole (see Side Action below).
Makeups: Since we are now doing a shotgun start, no makeups will be allowed. Instead, if you miss a week, you will receive the same points as the lowest scoring lady in your flight. Don’t forget – your two lowest scores will not be counted !
Side Action: We are planning to do some fun side games within league, which will also allow players to compete regardless of overall score ! For example, Least Putts, Chip In, Closest to the Line, and some others we will think up along the way. If you want to participate – please see Karen or Linda each week. And don’t forget to record your putts on each score card !
LEAGUE KICK-OFF MEET & GREET (Happy Hour) & RULES REVIEW: Wednesday, May 15th at 5:00 in the Tee Box. We will go over the League format, as well as the NEW Rules of Golf changes for 2019. We will also go over some old rules for clarity. There will also be refreshments !!
