A storm blew in and we had to take a break due to the weather but when we got back out there the golf was hotter than ever. Jake Colley shot a sizzling 32 (-4) for 24 points but it wasn't enough as Dr. Damian Gunaratne had to give himself mouth to mouth after firing a shocking round of 44 for 25 points and a 1st place tie with Ross Thompson who also scored 25 points with a round of 49.

Week 1 Results
I'm still getting the hang of the system so this will be more of a test and a straight forward report on the results from Week 1.
Congratulations to Don McGregor for winning the first night of the year. Don shot 41 and ended up with 24 points. Noel Quinn was right behind him in 2nd place with 23 points and in 3rd place was Ian "Bootsy" Colley, who was having his career best round until it derailed on the 9th hole when he took an 11. Top 8 finishers are below. All results can be seen by clicking the Stableford / Ringer Board / Skins tab at the top of the page. I've also added the Skins winners below for this week but going forward they can all be found under the same tab.
We'll still do our weekly draws for 4 x $25 amounts that will be added to the winner's accounts. The winners this week were: MARK MORTON, PHIL GAUTHIER, JOHN NOTHER and JEFF ZETTLE.
We actually had 91 members out so the 50/50 is for $45.50 and the winner is JAY BELL (not rigged, I swear).

How Men’s Night League Works - 2021
Men's Night League is based on a Net Stableford System. All players start each night with 0 points and receive strokes based on their 9 Hole Handicap. (For example, a player with an 18 hole handicap of 12 would receive 6 strokes for 9 Holes). The strokes are then designated to the holes based on their difficulty (Using our example – the player would receive strokes on #5, #6, #2, #8, #9 and #1. A Player then earns points based on their net hole-by-hole score for 9 holes. (Example: Our player gets a bogey on #1, his stroke gives him a net par and therefore 2 points.)
- How are Points awarded?
Points are recorded as follows: Net Bogey = 1 point; Net Par = 2 points; Net Birdie = 3 points; Net Eagle = 4 points; Net Double Eagle = 5 points.
This year there are negative points (-1) for a NET double bogey or worse.
- What's my Handicap?
A separate Men’s Night League handicap is calculated each week and is based on your best 4 Men's Night League Scores in the last 7. It will be based on actual handicap calculations using the slope and rating of our course. Initially, your handicap will be based on your year-end “average-strokes-above-par” from last year. For new members, your handicap will be based on a suitable handicap. Your current handicap will be shown on the Golf Scoring system.
- Are there Flights?
Due to the handicapping, our new system allows all players to compete equally with all other players – no matter their skill level. As such, nightly results, quarterly standing and yearly totals will be based on a single flight made up of all participants. The SKINS AND RINGER BOARD will be the only aspects of our league that will continue to be flighted A, B, C, D - since these are based on gross scoring results.
- Tee Blocks.
Men’s Night League is played from the Blue tee blocks. All A Flighters must play from the BLUES. If you are 65 or older and in B, C or D Flight you will have the option to play from the WHITE Tee blocks. (You must play the same tee blocks each week and cannot switch back and forth).
- Prizes. Each week, the top 8 golfers based on their Net Stableford point total will receive nightly Men’s Night League prizes. There will also be prizes for quarterly leaders and at the year there will be overall prizes based on your finishing position. A year-long Ringer Board winner for each flight will also be given at year-end.
- What if I don't complete a Hole?
You can pick up at any time – simply putting a Quadruple Bogey on the scorecard works for handicap purposes.
- How many Men's Night League nights are there?
In 2022 there will be total of 22 Men's Night League Rounds in the season. There will be 20 Thursday night’s throughout the summer and a final 18 hole Closing Day on a Saturday that counts as 2 rounds.
- How many Men's Night League nights count towards the final Total
In 2021, your best 18 rounds count towards your year total. (i.e. You can miss up to 4 and your score is not affected).
- How does “Skins” work?
“Skins” is available to Members only and remains Flighted A, B, C, D based on your handicap. Participation in the Skins is voluntary. Entry fee is $5 per week.
This is an on-going, member friendly scoring system that we have been developing and progressing throughout the years. We always appreciate your patience and especially your feedback.
Men's night will be played rain or shine. A day will only be cancelled if either there is thunder and lighting that will not subside throughout the evening in time to allow everyone to finish their round or if the amount of rainfall or weather received makes the golf course unplayable. If all groups are not physically* able to complete their round then all scores will be cancelled. (*Voluntary withdrawal does not count)
Golf bless us, everyone!
