LEAGUE STANDINGS, PROXIMITY RESULTS, HOLE ASSIGNMENTS, HANDICAPS & SUB LIST
• These will be posted online by Monday following previous Thursday League play.
• You may hit 2 balls on first tee ONLY and play the better of the two
• Everyone will play from White Tees using USGA and local course rules (listed on scorecard).
• Keep pace of play, slow play rules will be enforced
• You may only roll/touch/clean your ball in YOUR OWN FAIRWAY through the green up to 6 inches but no closer to hole (Winter Rules)
Everywhere else play the ball as it lies (down) unless posted otherwise.
If necessary, Pro Shop will post Winter Rules EVERYWHERE based on course conditions for that round ONLY
• Be a gentleman and discuss rules or questions with your playing partner and opponents to
determine a honest judgment regarding drops, out of bounds (white stakes), ground
under repair, hazard point of entry (red / yellow stakes), and hole by hole score.
• If an agreement cannot be reached or there is a dispute, play 2 balls and mark both scores on card.
Discuss with Ron Coles or Marc Sanchez following completion of your match.
All league committee decisions are final.
Continued unsportsmanship or harassment may result in suspension from league.
• Interior OB will only be the parking lot and clubhouse. Exterior OB lines are marked with white
stakes and are stroke and distance penalties. If you are unsure if your shot went OB,
play a provisional ball. If you find your original ball, pick up your provisional (this will save time).
• “Gimmies” on putting surface need to be agreed between teams prior to match
• If you hit the ball into a bunker that is marked as ground under repair or any area in question,
take the nearest point of relief no nearer the hole. You take full relief (not standing in the
bunker or on the bare spot) then drop within one club length. NO CLOSER TO THE HOLE!
• Matches that cannot be played on a league night must be completed by the Sunday immediately
following that Thursday (within 3 days). Teams should agree on a mutually beneficial time/date.
If one team can’t play at all that week, they will receive zero (0) points and their opponents will get 15 points.
This must be reported to pro shop by 12 noon on Wednesday before league night to notify opponents.
• NO SHOWS?? Attendance for matches will be tracked. Teams or players that do not show up for
league and do not have subs may be asked to leave the league. They are other teams
interested in joining. NO REFUNDS of League Fees if you are asked to leave the league.
• If there is a “NO SHOW” team or one player, the opponent will play against a “GHOST” scorecard
obtained from the pro shop. The “GHOST” scorecard will have a 3 over par score with bogeys on the 3 most difficult holes.
