2019 Woodcrest Couples League

Woodcrest Couples League will play Mondays between the designated times of 4 and 6 PM. The cost will be $90 per couple cash only, for participants, on the first day of league play, payable to our designated money collector, usually Steve Fairbank and/or League President, Dan Barbagallo, or their designated representatives. There will be only a single division. You will probably be able to play at least once against all participating teams.
Non-Season Passholders, also participating, will owe an additional $12 per person per week reduced Green Fee, also payable in full for the entire season on the first night of league play, tentatively March 29th. The season will extend through the summer months culminating with a year-end tournament and banquet on Monday, August 19th. Carts are always available at $12 per couple on each league play night.
Substitute golfers may play to round out a foursome but their scores will not count for the purpose of taking team points. Non-Member substitutes will be charged the league rate, $12 unless a Member wishes to use one of their complimentary Guest Passes. The format, as in recent seasons, will be Best Team Net. 1 point per hole won and an extra 1 point for winning the match, for a weekly total of 10 points. Teams playing against a “No Show” team will end up playing against a “Blank Team” shooting a Net Score of 39. The “No Show” team will score no points. Maximum handicaps will be in effect, 18 for Men and 25 for Women. Maximum scores per hole will be double par unless the score limit results in winning points for the participant team taking the hole maximum. Scores can be turned in to the Pro Shop upon completion of play. Play outside of the designated tee times, 4 to 6 PM, will be allowed on a VERY LIMITED BASIS due to the scheduling of other league and public play. Players wishing to do so will be required to call and schedule a tee time. Weekly league results and the league roster will be posted on the Pro Shop League Bulletin Board and on the Woodcrest Golf Club webpage.
We ask that each team that wishes to participate to provide us with participant names, current contact information including an email address and text-capable cell phone number for each participant, so we might create a roster with contact information and schedule the season’s matches. League matches are to be scheduled and played at a time agreed upon by each participating team.

I Didn’t Finish a Hole

What to enter on a scorecard if you either do not finish playing or do not play a hole or holes in a round of golf.


What should I do if I don’t finish a hole, or my opponent concedes a stroke?

If you don’t finish a hole or a stroke is conceded, you should record your most likely score. Most likely score is the number of strokes already taken, plus in your best judgement, the number of strokes needed to complete the hole from that point more than half the time.

On your scorecard, you need to post your most likely score with an “X” preceding the number.

For example, you have already hit 2 strokes and you are just off the green, and your opponent just holed out for a 3; you may decide to pick up. What should you record on the scorecard? Most likely you would chip up and two putt; therefore, you should record an X-5 on the card. (2, already taken, + 3 to complete the hole).  Contrary to what some people may think, you don’t automatically put down your ESC maximum. First, you determine your most likely score,  and then after the round,  check to see if the most likely score is above your ESC limit.

What should I do if I don’t play a hole?

For Handicap Purposes, you should record par plus any handicap strokes for that hole.  For example, you are not able to play holes 17 and 18 due to darkness. You have a Course Handicap of 12 and holes 17 and 18 are a par 3 and 4, and are allocated as the number 16 and 3 handicap holes respectively. Therefore, you would record an x-3 on hole 17 (par + 0 handicap) and x-5 on hole 18  (par + 1 handicap).
