Details About Weekly Play
The Tournament Chairs create the weekly game selection. The intention is to have a wide variety of games during the season that allow many players to ‘win’. Both gross and net scores are used for most games thus creating two sets of winners.
The Pro Shop does all the pairings. We will do our best to mix up the pairings and start holes. Special requests and last minute cancellations make this more difficult, so please bear this in mind and be considerate of everyone in the club. Please contact tournament chairman (Lori Myers and Mary Brooks) for special requests. Sign up deadline is 9pm Monday prior to Thursday’s game via golfgenius.
There is an optional $1 entry for chip in pot & $1 entry for low putts pot.
Days, games and starting times may be adjusted when necessary.
Sign up for weekly play before 9pm Monday for the following Thursday’s play in the members section under weekly sign up
If you need to cancel, go to your golfgenius.com account and remove yourself BEFORE 9PM MONDAY.
If you must cancel after Monday (when pairings are set), contact either of our Tournament Chairs, Lori Myers or Diane Bishop.
Arrive and check in AT LEAST 30 minutes before your tee time. Check in will end 30 minutes prior to our shotgun start.
Prior to play beginning, each player checks in with the Tournament Chairs in the Pole Creek dining room. At that time, each group (typically foursome) is given an official scorecard. One person is chosen to record the scores on the card. This is the official record of play that is turned in to Tournament Chairs after completion of the round.
Optional sign up for chip in & lowest putts at the table next to check in.
Players then check in with Pro Shop to announce attendance and pay golf fees (if applicable). Scores are tallied according to the game being played. Each player may also keep their own scorecard, if desired. A shot-gun start is customary for all weekly play.
- Record Gross/Net legibly on scorecard unless otherwise specified.
- Keep Putts for the foursome on a separate scorecard.
- Circle your gross birdies.
- Master scorecard should be signed by the scorekeeper and signed to attest by another player.
- All players should keep their own scorecard and putts to verify with the master scorecard before handing in to the tournament chairs.
- Team games – switch scorecards with other team.
- Club Championship – switch scorecards.
Winners are determined by the Tournament Chairs based on the game played. Both gross and net are typically calculated. Weekly Winners are posted on this website location
Unique to our group is the Ringer Tournament! This competition is played throughout the season and culminates at the Final Awards luncheon in August.
Each member has a page with their name on it to record the scores (and date) for Meadow, Ranch, Ridge. For your first round on each of the nines at Pole Creek, you’ll record your gross score (by hole) in the Ringers Notebook (located on the shelf in the ladies’ locker room). Every time you play the nine, you get to update your improved gross score (a ringer) in the book. Be sure to date the ringer, too. You can count ringers on Thursdays and on all other golfing days.
Birdies and eagles should be recorded, dated and circled on the Ringer Sheet.
Pole Creek Ladies Golf have a fun way to acknowledge any of our group who makes a Hole-In-One during our league play on Thursday mornings! In 2017, nobody scored a hole-in-one during league play so our pot starts out with $170!
For a $5 annual fee, you will be eligible to ‘win the pot’ with your hole in one. Any eligible golfer ($5 gets you insurance) who makes a hole-in-one during our 2018 golf season (during Thursday league play) will take home the pot. Should we have no hole-in-one winner, we will continue to roll-over the pot and it keeps growing.
If someone wins it in 2018, we’ll send a message to all golfers that Hole-In-One Insurance has open enrollment–you can join in with your $5.
