NGC Men's Group
(Updated May 25, 2020)
The Men's Group is a great way to meet and play with golfers of all ages and abilities. We enjoy friendly competition, and use handicaps and net scores so that everyone has a chance to win. Most of our tournaments last one day, but the President’s cup is two days (with gross and net winners), there is weekly league play, and elimination match-play tournaments. With the exception of the 9-hole weekly twilight league, matches are 18 holes (or 36 holes for a two-day tournament). Last year at popular request we added a member-guest tournament.
We enjoy the social aspects of golf, and have refreshments after many events. For many of us, the Men's Group has contributed to our circle of close friends. Belonging to the Men’s Group encourages playing more golf, which is good for body and soul as well as one’s golf game!
Men's Group membership for 2020 is $45. (Choose Join in the menu above.) There are no additional fees for members except for the Member Guest tournament. We currently have ten tournaments scheduled for 2020. All events include prizes, and several include cookouts afterwards, including the first event (the Miami Scramble).
Choose the appropriate item in the navigation menu at the top of this page to find a membership form, a list of all tournaments, how to get a handicap, and local rules. (There have been quite a few changes in how handicaps work, with the USGA adoption of the new World Handicap System.)
Below is a list of our 2020 tournaments. (Click on the Tournaments menu item above for more details.)
Some COVID changes
If it continues to be the case that 18 hole rounds aren't allowed, then tournaments wil involve 9 hole rounds. Exceptions: for the 4-ball and knockout tournaments, matches will be 18 holes consisting of 9 holes on two days, unless the participants agree to just play a 9 hole match.
Events that traditionally have cookouts afterwards (Yankee Doodle and Metropolitan) will not have those cookouts (and will tee off from the first tee instead of a shotgun start) unless such gatherings have become allowed.
Last updated May 25; may be updated further for COVID-19.
The followng events are open to all Nehoiden members, are not official Men's Group events, but have many Men's Group participants. (The Game won't start until tee times are no longer required.)
