2013 Knights of Columbus Golf
(To signup for 2013 Golf, contact Paul Sullivan or Emmett Schleich
The League will operate on a 90% handicap. Handicaps will be established on
the first night of play, and each subsequent round will be averaged for handicap purposes.
Maximum score on any hole is double par (6 on a par 3; 8 on a par 4; and 10 on a par 5).
PLEASE PICKUP WHEN YOU REACH THIS NUMBER
TO SPEED PLAY.
Player’s whose handicap and age totals 75 play from the Senior Tees; everyone else plays
from the whites. (On the first night when you don’t have a handicap, play from the tees where
you think you belong…remembering the handicap is a 9 hole handicap)
Players should putt out (no gimmes, unless you reach the max score indicated in rule 2)
To speed play, the following rules apply to this league:
a. The ball is played up (winter
of Bounds on #2, #3, and #4 are treated as lateral hazards. (Take a one stroke penalty and drop where the
ball left play)
Balls hit into the water on #1, the ditch on #2, and the water on #8 may be dropped on the green
side of the hazard taking a 1 stroke penalty.
in the rock filled drainage ditches on #4, #5, and #6 may be dropped away from the hazard no closer to the hole with NO penalty.
Tee Times and Foursomes
- We play the front 9 at Kellogg. Tee times begin at 3:24 and run through
4:30. This allows us a maximum of 40 players each week. Players should arrive at the
course at the time most convenient for them and connect with 3 other players to make a foursome. Because
of the diversity of retirees and employed players, the time frame should result in nobody having to wait too long to tee off.
(If you wish to play with a certain player or players on a particular
week, please make advance arrangements on your own.)
- If your schedule doesn't allow you to participate at regular league time, you may post a score by
playing with at least one other league player earlier in that day. If you play earlier in the day and also at League
time, you must use the score you earned at the regular League time.
One member of each foursome MUST take responsibility for
collecting prize fees and skins money from players in their foursome and then turning in the fees and the scorecard at the
Knight of Columbus Bar following the round. Please be sure the full name of each player is identified on

(net score is your actual score minus the number of strokes you receive on that hole – eg. A
5 handicapper receives 1 stroke on the 5 most difficult holes; a 9 handicapper receives 1 stroke on each hole etc.)
throughout the year (minus points deduct from your total) and you are paid out at
the year end banquet for the points you’ve earned for the season. The value of a point is determined
on the available prize money divided by the number of points earned by all players.
Each week, the low net player(s) will share $10 in prize money taken from the prize
fund. No award will be given on any week less than 10 players participate.
A skins game is available on a voluntary basis for anyone
wishing to participate. The entry fee is as follows:
- $3 if your handicap is 5 or less
- $2 if your handicap is 6-9
- $1 if your handicap is 10 or higher
There is NO handicap in the skins game and the prize money is paid out each week.
If there are no skins a particular week, the pot rolls over to the next week. If you can’t
play on a rollover week, then you’re ineligible for the rollover skins.
NOTE: Each foursome is responsible for collecting skins game fees and
turning them in at the end of the round
Match Play Tournaments
At least twice during the season, we will hold a match play (head to head) tournament concurrently
with regular play. You are not required to participate, Entry fee is $10 per player. (even
though you’ll be playing match, you’ll still play out each hole for score to earn points)
The Year end banquet will be held at the end of August
following a scramble where prizes can be won. No points will be earned the last night.
Attendees will as in prior years, pay their own way.
