Our first golf date will be Monday, May 14th at Plantation Lakes. We will meet at 1:00 p.m. in the Pro Shop area. Upon arrival, please have your clubs ready to be dropped off at the bag drop area. Proceed to the Pro Shop to pay your $22 fee with a credit card or cash. We will gather for a “meet and greet” session. You will receive information about our league. You may also have a chance to ask questions and get information on tipping and suggested golf apparel. During that time, a photo will be taken for our newsletter.
Before play each week, you will have the opportunity to practice at the driving range or the putting green. Buckets of balls are available at Salt Pond for $5. A free bag of balls is included in your $22 fee at Plantation Lakes. The fees at Salt Pond will be $20 for 9 holes and $25 for 18 holes.
You will receive an email “Evite” the week before May 14th. Every week thereafter you will receive an “Evite” invitation in your email. Please respond with a “yes” or “no” reply only. Please do not reply “Maybe.” Be sure to click the response tab in order for your reply to be registered. All responses should be sent no later than Saturday evening. You may also comment when you reply if you feel necessary. Do not delete your Evite until after the event. You may want to change your response before Saturday evening and you can do so by going back into the Evite and changing your reply.
Tee times will be 12:30 p.m. at Salt Pond and 1:00 p.m. at Plantation Lakes. We will be playing 9 holes at Plantation Lakes and you will have the option of playing 9 or 18 holes at Salt Pond. We will have a “shotgun” start. Your name will be on your cart. Scorecards will be on the carts. Scorekeepers should be sure to record first and last names as well as the date. You can keep your own scorecard for your records or just photo the card at the end of play. You don’t have to keep score but it is encouraged. Following play each Monday, the scorecard should be handed in to the Captain or the Pro Shop.
Most Mondays, we will grab a bite to eat or refreshments at a local restaurant. We usually decide before play where we will meet.
RAIN CANCELLATION POLICY: Incase of light rain, we will be playing golf. If you anticipate bad weather and plan to cancel, you can revisit your Evite and change your response up to Saturday evening. After that time, you will have to call the Pro Shop at our course for that week and let them know you are cancelling. If there is heavy rain and/or lightning, golf will be cancelled. You will be notified by email. Please let the captain or the course know if you need to cancel. If you fail to notify the course or captain of your cancellation, after the third occurrence, you will be removed from the league.
PRIZES: There will be one member who will be awarded a prize at the end of our season. The prize will be awarded to the golfer who has scored the most pars (within the first 9 holes). Eligibility requirement is 50% play (6 weeks out of the 13 week official season). If you fail to turn in cards at the end of play, you become ineligible.
GUEST POLICY: You are allowed to bring guests but are limited to two times/ person per season.
HANDICAP: No handicap is required for this league. We expect that you have a basic knowledge of the game, rules, etiquette and pace of play.
