Format of Play- Each year, the four women with the lowest handicaps are Team Captains. All other members are assigned to a team, with the goal of making them as even as possible in terms of average handicap. Teams are established by the CNWL Executive Board. The Executive Board includes the four officers, the Prior President (Helen Schadlick) and two At-Large Volunteers (Sally Brogan and Hilda Wynne).
Each week, you will be playing for your individual best score while trying to earn points for your team. League play is handicap based, with a maximum of 18 handicap strokes for the nine holes. Points are earned hole by hole based on net score. Bogey–1 point
Albatross/Double eagle–5 points
Foursomes change weekly, so you get to play with almost everyone throughout the season, regardless of team or handicap. Also, each week there is an optional game run through the pro shop which members can enter for $2 (you can sign up and pay in the pro shop each week you wish to do it). It usually includes closest to the pin on one par 3 and something else (such as low gross and low net, or point quota) chosen by the pro shop. Any week you do participate in it, you must fill out a regular score card (with just your gross score) and turn that in at the pro shop. This is in addition to our league card.
The Match- If unable to play, members are responsible for getting a sub from our sub list and notifying the person preparing the score cards. (Hilda Wynne at firstname.lastname@example.org)
If a player fails to complete play after the first five or more consecutive holes (due to accident, sickness, emergency call, darkness, or bad weather) or arrives late and misses a hole or two, the player gets the points earned for the holes played.
If it is raining, please call the club to find out if the league is cancelled. Every reasonable effort will be made to make a weather go/no go decision by 2 pm that afternoon. There will be no make-up match required. If it starts raining after the round has started, you should continue play unless the course is closed. All points accumulated during the round regardless of how many holes are played will be applied to your team score.
All strokes must be played out on each hole unless you’ve reached your equitable stroke and it does not affect the outcome of the points earned. In that case, you are allowed to pick up your ball.
