Rules Clarification
We missed documenting a previous rule that we wanted to make sure you are aware of – you can replace your ball at any time, except in a hazard. We are amending rule #11 to reflect this omission.

Handicapping Change
After discussion by the Board over the last week, players that do not have established league handicaps now have an updated chart to use when calculating their handicap at the end of their round. The formula will be as follows:

(score – par) * 0.7, then REMOVE all digits after the decimal

For example, if you shoot a 44 on the front (par 35): 44 – 35 = 9 * 0.7 = 6.3, remove all digits after the decimal = 6. You will use a 6 as the course handicap value and then adjust strokes given/taken versus your opponent.

Reminders

  • Declare your matches – the better players on each team need to play each other – even if a player does not have an established handicap.  A player with an unestablished handicap DOES NOT MEAN they are automatically playing the higher-handicap player on the other team.

The easiest hole of the night was #9 with an average of 0.9 strokes over par. The toughest hole was #7 with an average of 2.2 strokes over par.

Congratulations to Rich Stacey (Gross – 38) and Gene O’Neill (Net – 31) for making it into Aces to Aces!

Reminders

  • The max score on a hole is double-par + 2.  Don’t record a higher score.  A player who holes the ball *at* the max strokes will win the hole over a player who *picks up* due to max strokes.
  • Declare your matches – the better players on each team need to play each other – even if a player does not have an established handicap.  A player with an unestablished handicap DOES NOT MEAN they are automatically playing the higher-handicap player on the other team.

The easiest hole of the night was #12 with an average of 1.0 strokes over par.  The toughest hole was #14 with an average of 2.4 strokes over par.

2017 League Information

2017 League Information

Greetings!  Geoff Hubbard, our new president, has provided the following information for 2017:

Players,
I am the new president of the Thursday Night Men’s League and I vow to make “The League Great Again!”  Thanks for everyone who played last year and I am hoping you will all be back again in 2017.  With that said if you could send us an e-mail (ThursdayNightMens@golfisasport.com) and let us know your team name and if you plan to play in the league again this year that would be great.  I’d like to get the teams finalized by next Friday.  If you know anyone who might be interested in playing, if a spot were to open up, please have them contact me.

The course (Tregaron) and fees ($850/team) will be staying the same.  We will also be using www.golfisasport.com again for scheduling, results, and handicaps.  You can find the information sheet for 2017 by clicking here.

We’d also like to have a league meeting before the season starts on April 6th at 6pm to go over any rule changes, league format, listen to Perfection Unattainable talk about how great they are, and enjoy some preseason camaraderie!

If you have any questions or concerns about the league please let me know and I’ll delegate it to someone else!  I hope to see you all next month and I know we are all ready for golf to be here.

Your humble servant!

Geoff Hubbard

 

 

Ground Under Repair

Ground Under Repair

Scenario
A player teed off #11 last week and the ball was located inside a roped off area (yellow rope) around a single tree on the right edge of the rough left of the cart path. The player consulted his opponent and it was decided the roped area was marked as ground under repair.   A free drop without penalty was taken.

Embedded Golf Ball in Bunker

Embedded Golf Ball in Bunker

Scenario
In league play, a player’s drive on #18 was heading towards the right hand fairway trap. After searching in and around the trap without success, a closer look in the trap discovered what appeared to be a ball with less than a dime’s area of the ball exposed. A discussion among the players questioned whether the ball had to be played as it lied without confirming if it was the players ball or whether the player could pick the ball up to identify that it was his and then replace it in the original spot and covered back with sand as found. The player chose to remove and identify that the ball was his and then replaced it and covered it back as found….was he correct?
