continue reading ›
Start time is 9:00am. Arrive 15 minutes early to resister.
Important: Since this is a handicap league you must play your first round on or before Feb. 10th, (on or before the third week.)
$5 all in, (See note below for details of weekly and final round payouts.)
$1 Ace pool optional. (See note below)
$3 for the CTP optional. (Three CTP’s. Hole 2 and two others to TBD at start of round.)
This is a 12 week league. Each week $1 of the $5 “all in” money will be put aside for the final 13th round. (i.e. for final round payout: If there are 10 players each week for 12 weeks, and $1 is set aside from each player then the final round total payout will be $120. IMPORTANT: To qualify for the final 13th round a player must have completed 9 of the 12 rounds. If no one hits the Ace Fund during the bonus round then any funds exceeding $50 will be rolled into the bonus round pay out. The Ace Fund for the next season will start at $50.
Standard course rules apply. The two meter rule is not in effect. In case of a tie if both parties can not agree to split the winnings or a throw off will start on hole seven
and continue on 18 if needed.
Averages and Handicap - How to Calculate a Golf Handicap"
An established player's (those who have played at least one game in one of the two previous seasons) handicap will be calculated as an average of the lowest five scores from your last 10 games. There is a limit of 18 on the handicap. There is a max 4 over par on any given hole. If a player threw more than 18 over par, 18 will be used to calculate that player’s handicap.
There will also be an adjustment to new players’ first three handicaps. (Note: a new player is someone who has not played at lease one round in the two previous seasons.) New players’ first two rounds will not be handicapped. After two rounds and up to round nine, a new player’s handicap will be an average of half of the lowest rounds. (i.e. If you have played six rounds, then on your seventh round your handicap will be an average of your lowest three previous rounds. On your eighth round your handicap will be calculated from the lowest scores three scores of the last seven rounds.) The purpose of these changes is to mitigate the impact of a beginner golfer's extremely high scores recorded in the first few rounds. This will add a level of fairness to the established players and encourage more experiences players to join us next season.
(In an attempt to be thorough I may have made this appear confusing. It is not. Just come and have fun.)
The weekly payout will be paid out (approximately) to the top third of the field in an amount to TBD. Details will be available before the beginning of each round after the close of sign in.
We hope to see you there.

No Round Today due to Lightning
Overnight they have added lightning to the forecast. For safety reasons we will not play today. The season will be pushed back one week.

Slacker Tri-Week Blind Noonan Doubles
Standard rules for Southside Slackers League apply.
$5 buy-in. 4 CTPs (TBD). $1 Ace fund to be tossed off from hole 7â€™s tee to hole 18â€™s pin if not hit.
This is a blind draw event that will run like normal rules with the following exceptions. You can do whatever you wish to distract the other team, i.e. talk, sing, or dance. You cannot get between the thrower and the basket (this includes throwing or placing anything between the player and the basket). Give the player a 5 foot window to move freely and safely. You can stand on the back side of the basket, but if they miss and you are hit then you take a stroke.
Each team will get one of the following:
Mulligan: This is a standard mulligan. If you donâ€™t like either drive off the tee, then you can both re-throw.
Shadow Drive: A shadow drive is where a team can use the other teams drive off of the tee box. Essentially both teams use the best of the four drives. Exception: This cannot be used on hole 11.
Blind Manâ€™s putt or Guide Dog putt: When the opposing teamâ€™s disc lands within 30 ft. of the basket you can call Guide Dog Putt. This forces your opponents to choose one player to make the putt. This is the only shot that they get from this lay. The player putting faces with their back to the basket and is blind folded. The putterâ€™s team mate gives verbal instructions to the putter to help him line up for the shot. Then the putter makes his shot. If he misses then normal play resumes from the place where the disc lands.
Arrive early to get signed in so we can start on time. See you there.
