Wednesday Night Men’s League
League play will consist of 9 holes regulation play. 4-person teams will compete in a weekly match play format (handicapped). Points will be awarded for win/loss/draw (1, 0, 1/2) results that are cumulative for the season total. Although it is a match play league, all players must individually finish and score each hole for handicap purposes and weekly prize awards. This is a competitive, yet fun league where all play is governed by U.S.G.A rules. *League will be limited to 20 teams.
Teams will consist of a maximum 8-person roster with 4 players playing each week. Alternates are allowed and encouraged to ensure proper weekly team scoring. Handicaps for returning teams will roll over into the 2022 season, if you are playing on a new team and still have to establish a handicap you are able to come out and play nine holes anytime between March 30th – April 6th. The first night of league play will be Wednesday April 6th. If you have not yet established a handicap, unfortunately you will have to play as a 0 handicap for the first night of league play. Alternates must play a qualifying round to establish a handicap prior to their first match.

This year we will be using the World Handicap Index(Formally GHIN) to establish our handicaps. Established handicaps can be used for individual global play for other events. We are going to use this system for weekly head to head matchups for the 2022 season. This season we are going to use 80% of each individual’s handicap for each match played. This means if your USGA handicap is a 20, you will play your match as a 16 handicap. If your handicap is a 10, you will play each match as an 8 handicap. If your handicap is a 5, you will play each match as a 4 handicap, and so on and so forth. Please remember these are Nine-Hole Handicaps.
Tee time will be 5:00 p.m. sharp starting on April 6th for the month of April! Tee time will be moved to 5:30 p.m. starting on May 4th. Play will alternate between both front and back nines. All men 59 and under will play the blue tees and men 60 and older will play the white tees. At the conclusion of play, all teams will turn their scorecards in a drop off area of the great room.
New Web-Based League Manager:
We are excited to announce that this year’s Wednesday Night Golf League will be using an online League Manager! Players this season will be able to easily follow scheduling, scores, standings, contest winners, and more right from your phone! There are also options to track a multitude of stats to follow your personal trends and progress on the golf course. We will be requiring each player to take responsibility and use the program to post their scores and match results. This will make for more efficient results but all players will certainly need to help us with this new process. More information will be available to you, the player, than ever! Check out the new online manager at www.golfleaguetracker.com.
We will be running food and beverage specials on a week to week basis. This will be a great time to get to know your fellow league players and build comradery in a fun and social environment. We hope that many of you will consider sticking around after play.
