RULES OF GOLF: Standard rules of golf shall apply to league play.
SCORECARDS: The Pro-Shop will provide scorecards to each team each week when they check in for play. The scorecards will include playing groups and starting hole information. Players must turn in scorecards to the front desk upon completion of play.
POSTING OF SCORES: The Ladies Association Handicap Committee will post league play scores, please do not post league scores yourself.
SUBSTITUTES: If a player is planning to have a substitute play for them, that player should notify Peter Nichenko of the substitutes name and IGA number, as well as the name of the player who will not be playing and the date for the substitute. This information should be provided as early as possible so that score cards can be adjusted accordingly. The Pro-Shop staff will not secure substitutes for absent players. A list of substitute players is available at the Pro-Shop.
LATECOMERS: Players should tee off at the assigned start time (5:45pm) and not wait for players who may be running late. If a player does join late, that player may not use scores for any holes missed, and the group should not replay any holes that the latecomer missed. However, if one team member is on-time and the second team member is late, the on-time member's scores can be used to obtain points for those holes that they have played. If both players of a team are late, they forfeit the holes that they were unable to play with their opponents, and the opposing team wins those hole points.
BAD WEATHER: If a league play night is cancelled due to inclement weather, that night of play will be made up sometime during the season
Show up on time: Be ready to tee off at your assigned hole at 5:45 pm; please be at that assigned hole by 5:40 to ensure on time tee off.
Handicap: Team members and substitutes must have a current WHS handicap.
