Week #5 Results

Our first week in the new black pins yielded a new course record...as it should because it's the first official round. Marc Nelesen can claim the course record on the 18 hole layout for now as he posted a 50. Meanwhile, Camden Guzman was up to his hot play tricks again as he's the first of 2020 to win multiple weekly best adjusted score titles. His adjusted 47 bested the field.

Black Pins Tomorrow!

Hello! I would like to remind everyone that we will be switching to the black pins tomorrow. That means that we will be playing the exact opposite that we played last week, no pins are the same in black/yellow layouts. I've provided a description below in case you would like more details about which basket belongs to which layout. Also, please review the reminders:
- There are no free "rethrows" so if you throw to the wrong basket, you still have to play that shot.
- All O ... more

Taking a look at points, Tyler Wright has jumped into the lead followed closely by JRDZ. Both are 15pts clear of 3rd place and have played well through the first quarter. Meanwhile in the scoring race, not much change at the top but positions 3 through 10 had some slight movement.

Week #3 Scoring Race

Greetings. It's time to take a look at the race for the green jacket. No surprise here, Trevor Wander has taken his spot atop the list with a familiar foe1 throw behind him in Marc Nelesen! The rest of the top 10 features many familiar faces with a couple of surprises in Jared Monsma in 7th and southpaw Jeff England in 10th. Jared finished 17th last year while Jeff joins the league after a 3 year hiatus. Looking forward to seeing how the race evolves once we enter black pin scores come ... more

Week #3 Results

Week 3 marks our DGS update with most players (those with at least 3 rounds) marking their first 2020 handicap. Before I get into points and other business, I have to give a shout out to our top two performers from week #3. First off, the only player to shoot in the 40's on the night was Chris "The Tank" Wabeke with a tidy 48, nice work! On the best adjusted score side we had Nick Vourlitis shooting 8 throws better than week 2 with a 52 adjusted to 44.

Meanwhile, Zack Devrow ... more

Week #2 Results

74 players braved the threat and eventual rain that occurred on Tuesday night. Not a bad showing for what looked to be poor weather with rain and wind. Overall, the conditions did lead to a .74 increase in average scoring compared to week 1. Trevor continued his torrid start pacing the field again with a 49. Best adjusted score will be computed in week 3 so stay tuned for that!

Hot Round: Trevor Wander 49

Week #1 Results

In keeping with tradition, I present to you the week #1 poem:

It’s been a strange year thus far,
A virus rapidly spreading,
But good news is upon us, hooray!
SA League, Tuesday nights we are heading.

Meet me in Saugatuck in June,
Has never rang truer in my ear,
I have a boating question for Rudy,
Can I swap diet coke for a beer?

83 players did take part,
Throwing plastic, smashing chains,
But one player emerged victorious,
As if emerging from ferocious flames.

2020 Season is underway!

What a night we had last night! The amount of members we signed up last night took us by surprise, but everything went smooth - special thanks to Rob and Todd for taking money and handing out the players packs!

Our season typically starts with a preseason which allows us time to consolidate our membership & scoring lists, handle financials, and smooth out the administrative logistics associated with managing 100 players. Please bear with us while we do this on the fly.
