2021 Men’s League
Sign-up sheets will be available in the clubhouse starting immediately!
Hoping to have everyone signed up for leagues by May 4th (spring scramble) for men’s league and May 12th for senior’s league.
Gentlemen, the 2021 golf season is here and I want to get you some of our key dates as well as some of the changes to Men’s League this year.
The 2021 fees will be as follows:
- $30 for MGA handicap (mandatory, goes straight to the MGA, that’s their charge to us)
- $75 for men’s league (16 weeks comes out to $3.12/week)
- $25 for the blind bogey skins game (optional)
- Longest putt and closest to the pin $1 per game each week (not included in league dues)
- $5 “back nine” (opposite 9 of league) skins game (not included in league dues)
- $5 hole-in-one pot. Paid at the beginning of season. Will accumulate until it goes out,
FORMAT (“ABCD” teams)
This year we will be having more teams comprised of less people per team. Last year we had 8 teams of approximately 12 people/team. This year, if we have the same amount of people, we would have 12 teams of 8 people. Teams will be broken into 3 or 4 “tiers (top 1/3 or ¼ of team will be “A’s”, next 1/3 or ¼ will be “B’s” and so on). Each team will take 1 net score each week from each tier. Teams will not take 2 scores from the same tier even if they are one of the lowest scores.
If a team does not have someone play from a particular tier, they will be awarded a “dummy score”. The dummy score will be figured by taking the highest score that was used from all of the other teams in that tier and 3 strokes will be added.
The last week of each quarter this year we will have an additional “match play” game going on that will put two teams against each other where the tiers will play against each other for an additional point for each tier. (for example, Team Johnson #1 will play against Team Woods #1. I will use their league score that was recorded to go hole by hole in a match play format. If the end result is a tie, both teams will be rewarded ½ of a point. I will explain further at the spring scramble for those who are confused with this.)
Individuals will be responsible for writing their own scores on the sheet, what tees were played, and scores in the computer each and every week.
Scores must be written down every week otherwise they will NOT be counted and the individual will not get credit for playing that week.
There will be 4 quarter winners that will make the one-week playoff. If a team has already won a quarter, they cannot win another quarter. The next best team will then be that quarter’s winner. The playoffs will be used for year-end payouts; however, the overall team champ will be figured by accumulating the entire season point total (these individuals will go on the league champ plaque).
Rain-outs will not be made up, that quarter will just have less weeks in it.
There will be 12 balls awarded each week. 1 ball to each of the 6 lowest gross scores, and 1 ball to each of the 6 lowest net scores. The gross scores will be figured 1st and if you win a gross ball you will not be eligible to win a net ball. Closest to pin and longest putt will be back, $1/game per week.
We will not be doing the free drink each week this year. Instead we will be adding another club to the year end drawing.
Also, by changing to more teams, there will be less people that make the playoffs. This means that the playoff teams will get paid out more, as well as, more clubs in the year end drawing.
YEAR END DRAWINGS
Any individual missing 0-1 league dates will go into a drawing to win a new Driver ($500 value)
Any individuals missing 2-3 league dates (or less) will go into a drawing to win a new putter ($200 value)
Any individuals missing 2-3 league dates (or less) will go into a drawing to win a new wedge ($150 value)
Any individuals missing 3-4 league dates (or less) will go into a drawing to win a dozen golf balls of their choice (up to $50 value)
You will go into ALL of the drawings if you missed only 0-1 weeks, if you miss 2-3 you will be in the drawings for the putter, the wedge and the golf balls.
Other drawings and prizes may be done in addition to those mentioned above. It all depends on the turnout that we can get for our Men’s League this year.
