Bookmark this page for weekly results, layout changes, etc. 

• Wednesdays, starting March 13th
• Initial cost: $20 for a 2019 tag

• Format – Singles stroke play

• Season passes with a tag are available for $140 until February 28th.  Paypal via friends and family.

• Four player pools (A/B/C/D) – Your pool placement will be based on your average score.
Anything under 55.99 and under = A Pool
56 through 61.99 = B Pool
62 through 68.99 = C pool
Anything 69 and over = D Pool
These #'s are for scores on The Hill (standard baskets). You can always play up a division.

• A weekly divisional cash payout, an ace pot (capped at $250, will roll over to additional pots if needed.) and a season long points event for all pools. Lots of raffle prizes at end of the year including some big-ticket items. You can pick up your winnings that night or bank winnings for payment at the end of the year.

• Players opting to play on The General will receive a handicap. The handicap will be based on last 3 years of data with nearly 6,000 rounds considered.

• 31 weeks of league play (last day is Wednesday October 9th).


• One round of singles

• If you leave before tags are redistributed, get someone to grab it for you. Alternatively, you can grab the highest #'d tag available on the board before you leave.

• Tags are in play for casual rounds and tournaments. Higher tag can challenge a lower tag and under most circumstances, lower tag must accept.

• The auto generated hole assignments are an integral part of keeping league running on time. Please report to your assigned hole at the appropriate time.

• If there is money in the ace pot at the end of the year, we will throw off for it at the Bonanza.

• There will be a year-end Bag Tag Bonanza to end the season. For tag holders only! Date is Sunday October 27th.

• Lots of raffle prizes at the Bag Tag Bonanza. Earn raffle tickets by attending league, hitting an ace. The more you play the better your chances of winning are!

Weekly base cost

• Tagholder: $5 -
$2.25 payout, $1 course funds, $.75 ace pot, $1 Bonanza

• Non-Tagholder: $7 -
$2.25 payout, $3 course funds, $.75 ace pot, $1 Bonanza

Players without a tag aren’t eligible to win the full ace pot, won’t earn raffle entries, won’t accumulate season points and cannot attend the Bag Tag Bonanza.

Women’s entry is always $5.00 though same restrictions apply on ace pot and bonanza for non tagholders.

Prepaid Season Cost

• $140 which includes a 2019 tag and prepaid entry to all 31 Wednesday League nights. 7 weeks of savings if you attend every week.

Optional Pots

   *consider last 10 rounds, drop low 2 and high 2 then average other 6 rounds

You can pick up your winnings that night or bank winnings for payment at the end of the year for each of these pots. You can only collect banked winnings at or after the Bonanza. It’s not set up to be a bank you can draw from.

Skills Challenge
A random & quick skills challenge at the end of each night for an additional point in the standings.

Points Series Rules
• We will track points for each player & post the up to date standings here:

• A, B, C & D Pools will have separate standings

We will award points based on the number of places paid out

1 place paid and 1 point for the winner in a division of 5 or less players

3 places paid and awarded points for a division with 6-9 players
1st = 3 points, 2nd = 2 points and 3rd = 1 point

 5 places paid and awarded points for a division with 10+ players
1st place = 5 points, 2nd place = 4 points, 3rd place = 3 points, 4th place = 2 points and 5th place = 1 point

• Everyone gets 1 point for playing (you can accumulate up to 25 attendance points)

• Players will be moved into the appropriate division at week 10 and on a case by case basis after that

• Top 3 point earners in each division (or more) will win a cash prize at the end of the season. The season payouts will be a little lower this year to make way for more Bonanza prizes.

• Other ways to gain a point - hit an ace, win the skills challenge.

A quick rundown of the changes this year:

Matt Steinberg has agreed to join the rotation of running league. Thanks Matt!

Courses/layouts will rotate on a schedule (ie: Hill only, General only or both in play. Hill layout will rotate as well once we install the new locks.)

Card assignments will rotate on a schedule as well (ie: pick your own or random. Whichever makes the most sense for the scheduled course/layout.)

We will add in some variety rounds (ie: two disc dilemma. These rounds won’t count for average but everything else stays the same.)

We will keep divisions as A/B/C/D but we are going to shift the averages that determine pool placement down a little as shown below.  We will determine your average by raw score so that we can fairly move players divisionally

We want to encourage tag sales, so the system will not calculate points or raffle entries until you have purchased your tag.

We are adjusting the points awarded each night.  The number of points earned will equal the number of places paid out See below for breakdown.
