Wednesday Weekly League Returns March 12th!

The Wednesday Weekly returns on March 12th. Come get your 2014 bag tag and be ready to tee off by 4:15PM. This was once again the most popular singles league in Massachusetts last year (nearly 1,500 golfers came out) and I am aiming to make it bigger and better this year so come join the fun.

We use league as our primary fundraiser to help pay our yearly insurance bill. We make it fun for all, so don't worry that you have to be an all-star to have a good time. We group players into four groups based on skill/gender, so you'll always be competing with someone about as good as you.

• Four player pools (A pool for players who average 58 and under, B pool for players who average between 59-68, C pool for players who average 69+ and a women’s pool).
• A weekly cash payout, a cash CTP for each pool, an ace pot and a season long points event. Lots of raffle prizes at end of the year including some big ticket items.
• Buying a tag saves you $2/week. Visiting non-taggers can still play and get in on the cash payout but can't compete for a tag.
• You must be a tag holder to collect the ace pot
• Wednesdays, starting March 12th
• Be ready to go at 4:15pm. Time will move up to 5:30pm according to sunset.
• Initial cost: $20 for 2014 tag
• We will do a skills challenge at the end of the night as soon as daylight allows

Weekly cost
• Tagholder: $5 -
$2 payout, $1 course funds, $.50 CTP, $.50 ace pot, $1 season points event & payout.

• Non-Tagholder: $7 -
$2 payout, $3 course funds, $.50 CTP, $.50 ace pot, $1 season points event & payout

• No handicaps.
• One round of singles
• If you leave before tags are redistributed, get someone to grab it for you or risk us losing it.
• Tags are in play for casual rounds and tournaments. Higher tag can challenge a lower tag and under most circumstances, lower tag must accept.
• Ace pot rolls over each week. If there are no aces for 2014, half goes to the course maintenance/insurance fund and half goes to the 2015 WW ace pot.
• Two CTPs, one for A pool and one for B/C/W pools.
• There will be an improved year-end Bag Tag Bonanza to end the season.
• Lots of raffle prizes at the Bag Tag Bonanza. Earn raffle tickets by attending league, hitting an ace, winning the nightly CTP or winning the nightly skills challenge. The more you play the better your chances of winning are!

Points Series Rules
• I will track points for each player & post the up to date standings on this discussion thread
• A, B, C & W Pools will have separate standings
• 1st place in each pool gets 4 points
• 2nd place in each pool gets 3 points
• 3rd place in each pool gets 2 points
• Everyone else gets 1 point for playing
• If you move up a division at any point in the division 95%-60% of your accumulated points will travel with you to the new pool. Percentage is lowed as we go through the season. If you move down, full points are moved.
• Top 3 (or more) in points will win a cash prize at the end of the season.
• Other ways to gain a point - hit an ace/win the nightly CTP/win the skills challenge
