Handicaps for May are loaded on the "Documents" page.

Recently we have seen several instances of score cards with incorrect results.  Remember it is your responsibility to ensure that the results are accurate.  Cards in error are subject to disqualification.

We will have a mini-Ryder Cup tournament on May 19th and 26th.  If you wish to play in this event you must commit to both days although you may not actually play in the team event one of the two days depending on the number of foursomes on each team.

Individual play will be available for those that are unable to play in the Ryder Cup.

Captains for the event will be Jack Driskill and Ross Smith (start being nice to them).

Format for play will be Foursomes the front nine, and Fourball the back nine on the 19th.  The 26th will be dedicated to Singles.  The formats are explained below:

Foursomes (aka Alternate Shot)

Teammates alternate tee shots. Player 'A' tees off on odd-numbered holes, and Player 'B' tees off on even-numbered holes. After the tee shot, teammates alternate shots until completion of the hole.

Fourball (aka Two man best ball)

All four players play their own ball. The team whose player has the lowest score wins the hole. If the teams tie, they halve the hole. The team that wins the match receives one point, and if the teams tie they each get 1/2 point.

Singles (aka Match Play)

Players compete in match play head-to-head. The best score per hole wins that hole and tied holes are halved. The player who wins the match earns one point for his team. Ties are worth 1/2 point to each team.

  A Little Humor:

Golfer: Think I'm going to drown myself in the lake.
Caddy: Think you can keep your head down that long?

Golfer: I'd move heaven and earth to break 100 on this course.
Caddy: Try heaven, you've already moved most of the earth.

Golfer: Do you think I can get there with a 5 iron?
Caddy: Eventually.

Golfer: You've got to be the worst caddy in the world.
Caddy: I don't think so sir. That would be too much of a coincidence.

Golfer: Please stop checking your watch all the time. It's too much of a distraction.
Caddy: It's not a watch - it's a compass.

Golfer: How do you like my game?
Caddy: Very good sir, but personally, I prefer golf.

Golfer: Do you think it's a sin to play on Sunday?
Caddy: The way you play, sir, it's a sin on any day.

Golfer: This is the worst course I've ever played on.
Caddy: This isn't the golf course. We left that an hour ago.

Golfer: That can't be my ball, it's too old.
Caddy: It's been a long time since we teed off, sir.

Golfer: Do you think my game is improving?
Caddy: "Yes sir, you miss the ball much closer now.
