Welcome to the 2023 MHGC Men's League
2023 MENS LEAGUE
RULES OF PLAY
Date: Starts Thursday May 4th with a 5:30 pm shotgun start and ends September 7th with an 18-hole tournament. EVERY LEAGUE NIGHT WILL START AT 5:30 PM.
Format: Two player teams competing a point’s championship race using handicaps.
There will be an “A” and “B” player on each team. The “A” player is determined by the lower handicap. Each week you will play against another team. The lowest handicap of both teams will play against each other, doesn’t matter if they are a sub or not.
Scoring: NEW IN 2023: Each match that is won is worth 3 points. A tie is worth 1.5 points. A loss is worth 0 points. The maximum amount of points that can be scored in
one (1) week is 6 points.
Check-In Players are required to check in at the pro-shop BEFORE play begins. Check in will start at 4:00 PM. If you check in before 4:00, you will be charged for 18 holes.
Rules: All players must play the ball as it lies! No improving your lie!. The only way to have a true handicap is to play by the rules of golf. Playing the ball down will not only be fair to all players, it will make you a better player! The road on #1 & #4 is out of bounds!
All native grass that is not marked as out of bounds will be played as a Penalty Area! If your ball goes into the native grass (unless marked with out of bounds stakes) you are allowed to play the ball is you find it, or drop within two club lengths of the ball last crossed the margin of the penalty area.
Tees: All men 59 years and younger will play from the white tees.
All men 60 years and older are allowed to play from the GOLD TEES.
If you start with the white tees you must play the entire 9 holes from the white tees and if you start from the gold tees you must play the entire 9 holes from the gold tees! No switching back in forth between tees! If you decide to play the white tees, you must finish out the session from the white tees. You can’t go back and forth each week from white to gold tees because of handicap indexes.
YOU MUST LET ME KNOW WHAT TEE’S YOU ARE PLAYING IF YOU ARE NOT PLAYING FROM THE SAME TEE’S AS LAST YEAR!!!!!!
Pace of Play: This league is designed for fun! Our goal is for all groups to play nine holes of golf between 2-2 ½ hours. PLAY READY GOLF when the green or teeing area is open, be ready to hit. Also, help watch and look for other players’ golf balls when they need your assistance.
NO SHOW If you are unable to make a league night, you are responsible for finding a
POLICY: substitute. If you can’t find a substitute, you can locate the sub list on the new Men’s League Portal. Once you find a sub, please call the pro-shop and inform them.
Subs are required to pay a one-time fee of $10 to sub in the league.
I KNOW IT IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE – BUT IF YOU KNOW WHO YOUR SUB IS, IDEALLY, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW BEFORE 3:00 PM AT THE LATEST ON THURSDAY’S!!!
