A Frequently Asked Question:
Why have I been put on the wait list for a tournament?
It is often necessary for the one-day tournament coordinators (Janet and Sharon) to begin a wait list prior to the actual closing date of a tournament in order to assure complete groupings, particularly in team competitions. If and when the coordinator has the numbers to complete a group, those wait listed members will then be entered into the tournament. Often there are situations where a player must withdraw from a tournament in an emergency at which time the wait-list player will be given the opportunity to enter the tournament. Therefore, DO NOT let the wait-list status deter you from registering for that tournament. Your credit card will not be charged until you are actually entered. We encourage members who wish to play in a tournament sign-up without delay.

June 21 Best Ball of 2, in flights at Madison Country Club - 1:00 PM shotgun
Revision to Best Ball of Two in Flights:
Per USGA Handicap System recommendation, members of a side may not differ more than eight strokes. A side with a large difference has an advantage over a side with a small Course Handicap difference. If a difference of more than eight strokes cannot be avoided, it is suggested than an additional 10 percent reduction be applied to the Course Handicap of each member of the advantaged side. Example: Player A has a Course Handicap of 5, her partner has a Course Handicap of 20. At 95% percent (handicap allowance for better ball competition) Player A receives 5 strokes (5 X 95%=4.75, rounded to 5) and Player B receives 19 strokes (20 X 95%= 19). There is more than an 8 stroke difference between partners (19-5=14). Therefore, both players would be reduced by an additional 10% based on the rounded Course Handicap. Player A receives 5 strokes (5 x 10% = .5; 5 - .5 = 4.5, rounded to 5 ) and Player B receives 17 strokes (19 X 10 % = 1.9; 19 – 1.9 = 17.1, rounded to 17). Strokes are taken as assigned on the players’ respective stroke allocation.
