TOURNAMENTS


 Our first "Major" tournament, The Helen Open, was held on June 1st and June 2, with plenty of water!!  It was a challenge as it had to be played backwards due to the flooding and conditions were somewhat challenging to say the least.  All players did a phenomenal job of cooperating.  THANK YOU!

It was a members only , 36 hole stroke play event.  Todd Burger was the victor and now wears the 2019 Green Meadows Net Stroke Play Champions crown.  Marv Hicks took 2nd place and also the 2019 Senior Net Stroke Play Champion's title.  Congratulations to them and to all participants.

Our season has begun ...


Score cards for handicaps are now being accepted at the counter at Green Meadows Golf Course.  Remember you earn "Spitz Cup" points for every score card turned in and posted.  NINE hole scores from rounds played at Green Meadows are now accepted. 

**********************************************************

Here are the requirements for submitting scorecards for posting to establish and maintain a Green Meadows Handicap:


Acceptable:18 hole scores from Green Meadows or any course listed in the USGA "National Course Rating and Slope Database."  9 hole scores will be accepted from Green Meadows Golf Course only (new for 2019)!

  1. Scores will be accepted for rounds played from April1, 2019 through October 31, 2019.  (The Michigan golf season)
  2. Scorecard requirements:
    1. Name, date of play, the tees played, and hole by hole scores must be clearly provided.
    2. The round must be played with at least one other person in compliance with USGA rules.
    3. All hole scores are subject to equitable stroke control (ESC) adjustment.
  3. All scorecards must be turned in at the Green Meadows golf counter in a timely manner.
  4. All scores obtained in a Green Meadows tournament when you play your own ball will be designated a tournament (T) score.
  5. Handicaps will be posted on the bulletin board and at this website, revised twice monthly.

************************************************
NOTICE:  Your WHITE TEE and your YELLOW TEE handicaps are posted.

The 1st column after your name is your INDEX, followed by your WHITE TEE [W] handicap then your YELLOW TEE [Y] handicap.

1.    Use [W] when playing from the white tees.

2.    Use [Y] when playing from the yellows.

3.    When you are playing in competition with another player that is on a ‘different’ tee, then, and only then, should you subtract 4 from your [Y] handicap.

Alternatively, you can add 4 onto the player that is on the [W] tee.

Because of this change, the Ladies handicaps have been separated out to a special report.  The Ladies report still shows the Yellow Tee handicap only.  Any questions should be referred to Tim Katanski or Dick Tangeman.
