Welcome to the 2018 Season of the Delaware Travel League!

 

General Info To Get You Started:

    • Our first day of play for the season is Thursday, May 3rd, at Bear Trap Dunes.
    • We will have two leagues – a 9-hole and an 18-hole.
    • To maintain the caliber of golfers required to play at the premium tier golf courses we have selected, players must have:
      • A maximum handicap index of 35.0 to play in the 18-hole league
      • A maximum handicap index of 20.0 to play in the 9-hole league
      • *These handicap indexes are set by the Eastern Shore Chapter Board – SEE LEAGUE RULES FOR HANDICAP DETAILS
    • On Thursday, April 26th, we will pull your handicap index from the EWGA site, PLEASE be sure it is up to date.
    • If you keep your handicap index with another source, we will need a copy of your handicap index card emailed to Michele Doyle by Thursday, April 26th.
  • Special Activity for this year! We will be playing a challenge Match Play (for fun of course!) with the Maryland Travel League again. This year’s challenge will be held at Lighthouse Sound on WEDNESDAY June 27th. Both 18 and 9-hole challenges will be played.
  • When finished playing each week, sign your scorecards and return them to either of our Tri-Captains, or her designee.
  •  

Weekly EVITE/RSVP:

The EWGA’s ability to obtain preferred rates at premium courses depends upon our commitment to tee times obtained from the golf courses. It is imperative that the following rules are followed.

  • Every Saturday you will receive an Evite regarding details about league play for the following week. PLEASE RSVP either YES or NO and press send by 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday of that week. You will receive an email acknowledgement. This only confirms you signed up. It does not mean you have made the roster. Tee times will be sent by email as soon as the slots are full. If you have concerns, contact the Captain of the week immediately.
  • Make sure to check the weather BEFORE signing up and know your comfort level. WE WILL PLAY IN LIGHT RAIN. Be sure to hit the “reply” button on the bottom of the Evite page so that your response is recorded.
  • There will be a first-come, first-served signup. If allotted 5 tee times, the first 20 players to sign up will play that week. Please note that guests are welcome per League Rules and Regulations. If we have available tee times for a guest, you will be advised after sign-ups close that week.
  • Players must RSVP with number of holes you wish to play - either 9 or 18. No Changes or additions will be made after 12:00 noon on Wednesday.
    • Texting is the best way to communicate any last minute issues.
    • If for some reason you need to cancel, please call the Pro Shop no later than 9:00 a.m. Thursday morning and text the Tri-Captain who has sent the Evite that week.
    • Your cooperation on this will be greatly appreciated. If you do not call and are a “no show” more than twice, your league membership will be cancelled.
    •  

Networking...a primary goal of EWGA:

  • To allow for networking and social opportunities, we will attempt to mix players when setting up foursomes each week. PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST PLAYING COMPANIONS.
  • For those who wish to do so, we will be socializing somewhere close by each course for a cocktail and/or light fare immediately following completion of the day’s game.
  • We are planning to play various games throughout the season, and prizes will be given out at the end of play at the club restaurant. More info to follow in Evites.
  •  

End of Season prizes: The DE Travel League competition/end of the season prizes, as provided from Eastern Shore membership, will be based on at least 50% of weeks played between June 1 and August 31 (13 weeks). This means you must play AT LEAST 7 out of 13 games of either 9 or 18 holes. Since we are considered “two” leagues, we will have a prize for both leagues.

 

 

Golf Etiquette and Rules:

  1. Play ready golf.
  2. Please keep pace of play.
  3. Record your score when you get to the next hole.
  4. Don’t talk when you or someone else is taking a stroke.
  5. Carry the clubs you’ll most likely use when approaching your ball. This is especially important when playing cart path only.
  6. Hit as soon as the group ahead of you is out of range.
  7. Drop your cart partner off at her ball or park between your two balls.
  8. Hit a provisional ball whenever you think your ball may have gone out of bounds.
  9. Park the cart toward the back of the green.
  10. Cell phone use is highly discouraged. Only in times of emergency will cell phone use be acceptable.
