NEXT WEEK START TIME IS 5:15pm - For the first 72 players to register in person. This will be the last 5:15 start time and the following week (May 7th) we will move to 5:30 for the rest of the Spring/Summer until we start winding downward again late in the year.
Surprisingly, we had 59 players come out on a night with some tough wind and cool temps. We have been lucky dodging really bad weather so far this year but I think there has only been one single day with a nice forecast (we had 67 players that night). I'm excited to see what happens on the first nice day with a 5:30 start time.
Couple interesting stats for our first 7 league nights. We have had a total of 401 players and which means we are AVERAGING over 57 players per week. That's about 10 players per night better than last year.
We have also had exactly 100 unique players join us and we have sold 88 tags. Each of these figures almost matches last year after only 7 weeks.
I am aiming to start the PDGA league ratings on May 14th or 21st.
Ned Eisenberg takes home the #1 tag for the 4th week in a row!!
A few more administrative notes:
There was once again a huge gap (45 minutes last night, at least) in time between the first card in and the last card in. We are all playing the same amount of holes and starting at the same time. I'm going to move around where I put the 4 somes in an effort to make everything move a little quicker but please use this as a general rule of thumb. If there is no group in front of you and there is always a group behind you - YOU NEED TO PLAY FASTER.. Also helpful to move things along is the hole 18 spotter assistance rule. If you have all tee'd off of hole 18 and there is another group waiting on the box than let them drive before you get to the downhill turn.
The back of my car is not a lost and found. Each week when I get home from league I find the strangest items stuffed in there and I really want that stop. Lost and Found discs go to the Hawks Nest, you can drop it off there just as easily as I can... Clothing, towels, gloves, screwdrivers, and the many other assorted items will be thrown out or donated to charity.
Thank you for your cooperation on both of these matters.
