We will use 80% calculation of your actual gross score for 9 holes. Take a “double par” for a player picking up ball and not holing out. Handicaps will be calculated after each round. If you have a handicap ending in .5 or higher it will be rounded up to next whole number. Subs will have their handicaps calculated after they complete their first round and then adjusted each time they sub for the remainder of the season. We will use 2023 handicaps for regulars and subs (rolling 5 weeks).

Maximum handicap for this league is 18 x 80% = 14. Scores will be adjusted accordingly

You may hit 2 balls on first tee and play the better of the two
Everyone will play from White Tees using USGA, except as modified by local rules and league rules.
League rules
ARE NOT TO BE adjusted by teams before a match begins.
Keep pace of play, slow play rules will be enforced
You may roll/touch/clean everywhere up to 6 inches but no closer to hole (Winter Rules). 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 Steve Hielshorn 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 
Bunkers in 2024 are rake and place all season. 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). Contact a member of the other team. Teams should agree on a mutually beneficial time/date for the make-up. If one team can’t play at all that week, they will receive zero (0) points and their opponents will play vs. a blind draw card

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 both players. The no show player or team can only win 2 points, not totals.
At the end of the season, the top 2 teams from the Snead division will move to the Hogan, the bottom 2 teams from the Hogan division will move to the Snead. All team moves are at the discretion of the league operators to balance the divisions.
