  • Let us know by Monday of each week if you are not playing; if you must cancel at the last minute call the pro shop (see numbers below) to let us know or call or text one of the planning committee members.
  • Play “ready golf” and keep up a good pace of play.
  • Max score on a hole is double par: when you reach that, pick ball up.
  • Alert your captain to birdies, eagles, chip in’s,  long putts and drives, etc.
  • Offer to keep score for your team with the Golf Genius app for your smartphone

  • Be at golf course ready to go 15 minutes before the first tee time.
  • Check in golfers, make sure each group is ready to go on schedule.

Captain Duties

  • Keep scores and turn in scores to the pro shop desk after the round.  
  • Find someone on your team to keep score with the Golf Genius app as well
  • Clearly note any birdies, eagles, chip-in’s or other great shots on the score card.
