Meridian Men’s Golf League
Congratulations to the 2016 playoff winners.
Thanks to everyone for a great 2016 golf season. And a special thank you goes out to a league member who contributed the amount we will need to host the website through the middle of 2018.
As we discussed after the season-end scramble, it would benefit the league to add new members, hopefully enough to maybe add another flight. If you know anyone who might be interested in joining the league next year, direct them to the league’s web page and have them contact me.
A proposal was made and a vote taken at the scramble to eliminate the feed nights. Since members golf at different times, we rarely get a lot of people eating together at the feeds. The proposal passed, and this will save the league at least two hundred dollars a year.
In addition, we are implementing a rule change that eliminates “pre-dated” (“use this score for this date”) score cards. Starting in 2017, all pre-Thursday scores should be marked “Bank”, and we will use the current bank rules, i.e. use the highest banked score for the nine we are playing. This eliminates gaming the system where you can use a later, better score than what you have currently banked.
We also reiterated that all score cards should be dated with the date the round was actually played.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in 2017.
We’re going to institute a new policy which will help eliminate some confusion we’ve had recently. If you email me a score, I will respond that I received it. If you don’t hear from me within 24 hours, it probably means that I didn’t get it. If you don’t hear from me, either email me again or call me. I need to have all the scores in a timely manner so that points don’t have to be recalculated after the fact.
Also, please date your scorecards. If you’ve emailed scores and put the card in the box (as we should), that lets me know if the score is for a previous week or is a pre-golf / bank.
We accept emailed scores. If, when you drop your card in the bin after 7:00 pm, the bin is empty or almost empty (meaning I’ve already picked up the cards), please drop the card off and email me your score by Friday evening.
If there is a rainout on a scheduled feed night, we’ll send out an email letting everyone know if the feed night will still be on even if we don’t golf.
Please note that it is Lake Arthur’s policy that players are NOT allowed to bring their own beer onto the property. This includes the shelters as well as the course.
