New Procedures for 2023 (Revised 1/31/2023) - No More Captains

Your WGC Board has been busy preparing for the upcoming season.  Here are a few approved changes:

In an effort to streamline the checking in process each play day, we are eliminating the role of captains.  The following changes will be made beginning in April:

Non annual members, who pay each time they play, will pick up all scorecards and cart tags for the foursome.  If the foursome is all annual members, the first person who arrives at the course will pick up the scorecard and cart tags.

The first and third person listed in the foursome will get the cart and players 1 & 2 will ride together and players 3 & 4 will ride together.

Before teeing off, the foursome will decide who is keeping the official scorecard and who will enter the scores hole by hole in the Golf Genius software.  The person keeping the scorecard will turn in the signed and verified scorecard after the round.

Players will not be called each week.  Each player should check the pairings report in Golf Genius to be sure they are or are not playing.

Closest to the Pin money will be collected at the beginning of the season.  Keeping in mind that half of the money goes to our selected charities at the end of the season, each member who wants to participate in the Closest to the Pin weekly contests will pay $20 by April 6, our first play day.  Someone will be collecting this money at the Spring Meeting too.  The names of those participating will be on the proximity markers next to the green for recording your distance.

If you want to join the CTP contest after the Firecracker Tournament, you may do so for $10.

If you do not want to participate in the CTP but would like to donate to the charities, you may pay $10 and designate it for the charity fund.

The Board also voted to have a maximum hole score of 10 except on Low Gross, Low Net play days when ball pick-ups are not allowed.

Cancellations

Notify the Pairing Committee Weekly Contact and your Team Captain as soon as possible

Each week, the pairings committee has a designated 'Weekly Contact'.  The Weekly Contact's information can be found on the pairings sheet.

Members are responsible for letting the Weekly Contact and her team captain know if she is unable to play after pairings are published.  Please make the contact as soon as possible if a cancellation is necessary.  

No Shows

Cancellations called into the Weekly Contact after pairings are completed will incur NO PENALTY.  No Shows on play days will be removed from the sign-up sheet for the next regular play day.  (Note:  Regular play days do not include Special Tournaments.)  

No Shows are defined as "members who do not notify the pairings committee weekly contact or the clubhouse prior to the start of play".  This penalty applies whether or not the play day is canceled or not completed for any reason.

Two Club

The Two Club is a golf group that anyone can join. The only requirement for membership is that a gross “2” is scored while playing with a Two Club member or members.

Score a gross “2” (usually a birdie on a par 3) AND ASK if anyone is a member of the Two Club.

If so, pay each Two Club member $1.00. You are then a member for life.

Once a Two Club member, whenever you score a “2”, you must ask if anyone in the group is a Two Club member. If there are any, EACH person owes you $1.00. Thereafter, if you are playing with someone who scores a “2”, you either receive $1.00 from them, if they wish to join, or YOU pay them $1.00 if they are already a member.

If you score a “2” on a hole and ARE NOT playing with a Two Club member, YOU CANNOT JOIN THE CLUB yet.

Official Two Club pins are available for purchase at cost from the Awards Chair.

Maximum Strokes Allowed per Handicap Scoring

The maximum hole score for handicap purposes is NET DOUBLE BOGEY.

NET DOUBLE BOGEY = Double Bogey + any handicap strokes you receive

Example: A player with a Course Handicap of 10 receives 1 stroke on holes allocated 1 through 10. On a par 4 hole with a stroke index of 5, their net bogey is 7 (double bogey + 1).

WGC scoring will automatically adjust stroke controls for handicap. Always post gross score.
