Captain's Duties: Paying for Greens Fees

posted May 16, 2017, 8:51 PM by Sue Jacobson

The WGC Board met on Friday the 12th of May. At the meeting, Board members discussed the expense that captains can have when checking in with an NC (No Cart) player or players in their foursome. It was decided that we would not change the CAPTAIN’S DUTIES as outlined in the Handbook on page 12. Rather, suggestions were made as to how these situations could possibly be handled.

Captains’ duties will continue to include coordinating payment for their foursome’s greens fees each week. Since there is a wide range of greens fees payment options, it is important that captains check with each of their players to determine what each of them is responsible for paying. Greens fee payments should be determined before Thursday morning so that accommodations can be made for payment on Thursday morning.

There are several ways to accommodate payment of greens fees. Listed below are some of those options.

1. For those captains who would like cash in advance of going in to pay for their 4somes, please ask your paying players to meet you with their cash a minimum of 30 minutes before the shotgun start.

2. If a player who owes money for greens fees wishes to use a credit card, the captain can choose to delegate to that person the responsibility to go in and pay for the entire 4some. Whoever goes in to pay for the 4some needs to also get the scorecards and give them to the original captain.

3. If there is only one player in a foursome who needs to pay for herself because all the other players have Annual Golf Green Fees, the captain could delegate to that player the responsibility to go in to the pro shop to pay for the 4some. Again, whoever goes in to pay for the 4some needs to also get the scorecards.

If you are a player who has to pay to play each week, please try to think in advance to make arrangements with your captain concerning this payment. Advance coordination of greens fees payments will make Thursday mornings before play go more smoothly for everyone!

Thanks for everyone’s help!!!

WGC Play May 11th: 1pm at Highlands

posted May 2, 2017, 6:52 PM by Sue Jacobson

Since the MGA/WGC Scramble has been postponed, the WGC can now have a regular play day next Thursday. Due to the flooding though, Berksdale may not be available to play that day. As such, we were able to secure a 1pm shotgun at Highlands for Thursday, May 11th.

If you would like to play next Thursday, May 11th at 1pm at Highlands, please sign up before this coming Sunday night at 7pm. And please remember that carts are on path at the Highlands until after the tournament to be held there at the end of May.

The game of the day will be a 2 Person Best Ball in Flights.

Thanks for your patience and understanding!!!

MGA/WGC Scramble Postponed to October 5th

posted May 2, 2017, 6:46 PM by Sue Jacobson   [ updated May 2, 2017, 6:48 PM ]

After consulting with the MGA President and Vice-President, the WGC committee has postponed the MGA/WGC Scramble. The Scramble will now be played on Thursday, October 5th at Berksdale starting at 9am with the lunch to be held afterwards at the Kingsdale Picnic Pavilion. This decision was made due to the uncertainty associated with getting Berksdale back into playable condition by May 11th.

The WGC plans to hold onto entry monies for those who wish to play in October. However if any player would like their entry fees refunded for any reason, please contact Sue Jacobson by email or by phone.

Still looking forward to a great event! Thank you for your participation and understanding!!!

Eva White's First Hole-in-One!

posted Apr 24, 2017, 5:26 PM by BV WGC   [ updated Apr 28, 2017, 7:48 AM ]

During the 2017 Senior Women's Eclectic tournament, Eva W had her first hole-in-one ever!  She rocketed a 5 iron directly into the hole on #12 at Kingswood!!!  Congrats Eva!$!$!
On Monday, April 24th, which was the first day of play in the 2017 Senior Women's Eclectic tournament, Eva White had her first hole-in-one ever!  She rocketed a 5 iron directly into the hole on the 12th at Kingswood!!!  As a matter of fact, the ball destroyed the cup.  Grass and dirt fell into the hole on top of the ball in the cup.  They did the best they could to mend the hole and hope that no one behind them had too much trouble with the hole!  It is too bad that Eva was the only one in the foursome to witness the exciting shot.  The other players, Brenda Dandy, Elaine Twyman and Karen Brashears were being good and were double checking their scorecards!  Eva was so excited about the hole-in-one that it was difficult for her to focus on the rest of the round.

Now she has to really buckle down because she needs two more holes-in-one to catch up to her mother!  Congrats on your first, Eva!!!
