Future Events

  1. Make-up of Week #4 – As of August 4, “Week #4” will be made up on September 7. If you were scheduled to play on May 18, you are likely on the schedule. Check with your Team Captain if you have any questions or conflicts.
  2. WNL Playoffs – The first round of the playoffs is scheduled for September 14. Conference Championships will follow on September 21 with the WNL Championship scheduled for September 28.

Reminders

  1. Pace of Play is becoming even more critical now that the sun is setting earlier each week. Here are some examples of how everyone can pace of play a little faster:
    • Be early to your tee time.
    • Do not exceed time limit to search for a lost ball. The time limit is three (3) minutes!
    • Putting out after missing a putt vs. remarking a one footer.
    • Giving your opponent that six inch putt.
    • Playing ready golf vs. strictly following the “honors” system.
  2. If an issue arises on the course during WNL play that may impact the result of a match, please bring the matter to the WNL Director’s (or other BMGA Board Member) attention so we can try to resolve it right away.

Handicaps

  • If you are not entering your scores (or accurate scores) you are hurting yourself, your team and the people you are playing against. This includes WNL scores and “Away” scores.
  • All players are responsible for entering a correct course handicap per USGA Rule 3.2c (1). Post your scores for WNL as they are not entered by the BMGA or Brookview. 
  • The WNL Director is not responsible for checking the accuracy of the player’s handicap on the scorecards. Check the GHIN App before teeing off to get your current handicap and adjust it to the Side (Front or Back) and Tees (Member or Gold).

Scorecards  

  • Scorecards should be signed by at least one player from each team.
  • If someone concedes a hole, please mark an “X.”  This is especially important when both players score a 9 but the hole is conceded by the player who picks up their ball first.

Player A writes down a 5 and Player B writes down a 4.
  4. If you move a Prize Pin on the green, please be sure to move it back to its original position so the correct WNL member is awarded the much coveted BMGA Chits.

Player A writes down a 5 and Player B writes down a 4. If there is stroke index differential on the closed hole, players can agree on what score to enter taking into account current handicap, playing conditions, etc.”

The Weekly Rant  

New Request

  • If an issue arises on the course during WNL play that could impact the results of your match, please bring the matter to the WNL Director’s (or other BMGA Board Member) attention so we can try to resolve it right away.

Reminders

  1. Pace of Play is critical to the enjoyment of all. Please be early to your tee time.
  2. BMGA veterans please take the time to welcome new members especially your new teammates! 
  3. Using a Range Finder with the Slope functionality turned on is prohibited under USGA Rule 4.3a (1).  The penalty for violating this Rule is the “General Penalty” (Loss of Hole in Match Play) with repeat violations leading to disqualification. For more information see USGA Rule 1.3c (2).   
  4. If you move a Prize Pin on the green, please be sure to move it back to its original position so the correct WNL member is awarded the much coveted BMGA Chits.

Scorecards  

  • Scorecards should not be altered after being submitted without all impacted players agreeing to any changes to the results.  If agreement cannot be reached, the issue should be brought to the attention of the WNL Director or other BMGA Board Member.
  • After eight weeks of play, some scorekeepers are still unwilling (or unable) to fill in their TEE TIME.
  • Signing a scorecard means it’s supposed to be complete and correct in terms of addition, scores, etc.
  • Scorecards should be signed by at least one player from each team.
  • If someone concedes a hole, please mark an “X.”  This is especially important when both players score a 9 but the hole is conceded by the player who picks up their ball first.

Handicaps

  • Please post your scores for WNL as they are not entered by the BMGA or Brookview.  Sandbaggers are not appreciated.
  • The WNL Director is not responsible for checking the accuracy of the player’s handicap on the scorecards. Check the GHIN App before teeing off to get your current handicap and adjust it to the Side (Front or Back) and Tees (Member or Gold).

Scorecards  

  • After seven weeks of play, some scorekeepers still can’t fill in their TEE TIME. “Really”
  • Players from two teams forgot what team they played on. (Two Cards = four players on each). Kudos for including your handicaps.
  • One player wrote down a 14 for a score.  The max score on a hole is 9!!!! (As in Nine). No wonder it takes us more than 2.5 hours to complete 9 holes 🙁
  • Signing a scorecard means it’s supposed to be complete and correct in terms of addition, scores, etc.
  • Scorecards should be signed by at least one player from each team.
