2019 Spring Fling Scramble cancelled
-
Unfortunately, the rain, wind, cold and conditions have forced us to cancel the opening tournament for this year.  So Sad!!

We will have another go at it next Sunday, 4/28, with our UNIQUE "Zombie" Scramble.  This is a BIG HOLE tournament where the holes will really be 8" rather than the standard 4".  We will have some special rules for 2 of the par 5s as an added fun feature.  And, in case you are wondering, if you are in the Green Meadows Hole in One Club, a HIO in this tournament WILL count.  So sign up for that at the Pro Shop counter!

REGISTER NOW for the 'Zombie' Scramble - sign up your team or as an individual to get paired, on the sheet in the basement stairwell at the course or send an email by clicking here …

                                                            HANDICAPS

Revised handicaps for April 15, 2019 are now posted at the left.
 

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.
