REMINDERS:  

Ladies - please keep up with the group in front of you.  If there is a hole open, you can make up time by having the first person who putts out go immediately to the next tee to tee off while the others finish.  Remember, it is the responsibility of each player in the group to keep track of each other's scores when playing.  Confirm your playing partner's score after each hole so as to minimize any disagreement or uncertainty.

** Tournaments will only be 'rained out' if the course is closed! If the course is open, the tournament is still on. **

 

A reminder about scorecards: 
Two fully completed scorecards should be kept per group for all tournaments - as a means of verifying the scores. Be sure to spell out last names of all players clearly on the cards. Only one card  handed in - It must be signed, attested and dated.


POSTING YOUR SCORES - please be advised that our handicap chairs are checking every scorecard and will be contacting you if you have not posted.  You can post online at GHIN.COM if proshop computer is down.  Even if you do not finish a round (i.e. Warner Cup), you are still able to post your score.  These guidelines are taken from the USGA:

  • Post your score when you play at least 7 holes (for 9 hole round) and 13 holes (for 18 hole round) On the holes you didn't play record a par plus any handicap strokes you would have received. For example, if you have a 19 handicap, you receive one stroke on each hole and two strokes on the hardest ranked hole on the course.  If one of the holes you didn't play is ranked as the #1 hardest hole, give yourself par +2, and for the rest you would get par +1. 
  • When you pick up on a hole, jot down the score you most likely would have made. If this score is higher than the maximum number you are allowed under the ESC system, then you need to adjust your score to this maximum.
