There is a lot to go over before we commence play tomorrow at 11:03. First, it was decided at end of last season that we would adopt the same tee options as the Links uses in it’s tournaments, when we play our monthly event up there. The Links follows USGA Rule 3.5 which adjusts the course handicap. That means you can play the White (#3) or Blue (#4) tees. This year, the Links is sensibly using the #4 tees as the Point of reference. That means if you play the blues, you play off your normal course handicap for that tee. If you choose to play the White tees, you play off your White tee Course handicap minus 2 strokes. There is a chart on the wall next to the computer at the Links, showing your adjustment. I also have the chart here and I would appreciate if those few who choose to play the White tees would respond to me today. There is another layer of work involved in this. I have tried to put groups together based on my educated guess as to what tees you will choose to play.
Things to think about: If you want to qualify for the Club
Championship, you must play the Blue tees. Everyone, no matter the tee chosen, will be eligible for the two Closest to Pins. The Long Drive is for those playing the Blues only.
We will be playing SUMMER RULES tomorrow, no moving the ball when it is in play. Stroke play, 1st ,2nd 3rd Low Net, Low Gross
I will be closing shop at 11:30 tomorrow.If you are not there by then, FIND ME. If I don’t have your entry fee by the time I tee off, you can have a fun day out there, but you won’t be in the tournament or eligible for prizes.
I am not going to put handicaps in these pairings, they will be on the scorecards, which I will prepare tonight. If you are playing the Blues, no need to respond.. Please respond if you are opting to play the white tees so I can have the adjustment made on your card.
