The 2016 Board met to review the past season and discuss guidelines for next year. Here are a few highlights:
2016 Winter Golf Trip. Plans for a January winter golf trip are underway. If you are interested in going, please email Lucinda Audey firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know. Space is limited. Last year we flew to the Orlando area for 6 nights and 5 days of golf. Costs included airfare, condo rental, rental of two minivans, greens fees and food.
Top Golf Winter Play – Plans are to meet and play at Top Golf during January and February. Further information will be publicized after the holidays.
2016 Championship Flight Winners: GWGA board has revised the handbook regarding the championship tournament. It previously read: “The best combined two of three rounds total net will determine the flight champions.” It was decided that because the handicaps are used to determine a player’s flight, the flight winner should be determined by low gross within the flight. So the handbook has been changed to read: “Among the players in a flight, the best combined two of three rounds total gross, will determine the flight winner.” The online handbook has been revised to reflect the new language.
Flight D maximum for low net games. For the purpose of low net games, the tournament chair will set a maximum handicap for flight D similar to the range of handicaps for flights A-C. For example, if Flight B range is 21-30 and Flight C is 31-40, Flight D will have a similar range of 41-50. Individuals with handicaps higher than 50 may compete in the games, but their handicap applied for winning low net games will not exceed the Flight D range.
