Men’s League Banquet- Notes (9-1-21)
Format Changes: Hybrids/Irons Only- Men: Gold Tees, Seniors: Red Tees. Shamble format is back in rotation for the 2022 season.
We will send out a voting questionaire regarding the continuation of Tuesday/Wednesday split or all 72 teams play on Wednesday.
18-Weeks for 2022.
AS A REMINDER, ALL CREDITS MUST BE USED BY THE END OF THE YEAR!!!!
Men’s League members are to pay the full $135.00 entry fee before close of business on March 15th. This fee includes the $25 entry fee, $90 prize fund, and $20 Hole-In-One fee. This is to guarantee your spot in the 2021 Men’s League. In order to validate your spot in the League, both players on each team must have paid. On March 16th, any remaining spots for teams will be filled according to our waitlist.
As a reminder, all players (non-pass holders) must fill out a Prepay form. The form will secure that weekly payments are met; however, if any players wish to pay at the counter either with cash, or another credit card other than the one provided on your pre-pay form, this will be allowed. If either payment options are not recognized in the Pro Shop, your card on file will be charged the $15. Receipts may be picked up anytime after Wednesday evening. We do understand that committing to 18 weeks is a lofty goal; therefore, if you plan on having a Substitute play in your place, please inform the Pro Shop at least 24 hours prior. In addition, if any pass-holder uses a non-member in their place, the Substitute must pay the $15 fee. Pass-holder agreements do not entitle rounds to be transferred clearly stated in our pass-holder contract.
Formats for the 2021 season will hopefully provide a fun and competitive environment; yet keeping pace of play flowing. There will be three formats: Red-White-Blue, 2-Man Scramble, and a Hybrids/Irons Only Scramble. Marshals will circulate both nines to ensure pace of play is maintained. (The “2-putt” rule will be in effect for the entire season).
- Red-White-Blue (2-man scramble, play holes 1-3 (10-12) from the red tee’s, play holes 4-6 (13-15) from the white tees, and 7-9 (16-18) from the blue tees).
- 2-Man Scramble (self-explanatory, both players play from the best shot until holed).
- Irons/Hybrids Only Scramble (You can only use a hybrid or iron for your first shot from the tee ground).
We will be using the same grouping process as last year. Everyone will be assigned a new team number. These numbers are 1-36 A and 1-36 B. We have created a spreadsheet that will allow every group to start on different holes each week, never play with the same group twice, and switch front 9 and back 9 each week. This spreadsheet is located on the Sand Creek Station website and will also be posted on the doors of the Pro Shop every Tuesday and Wednesday evening. In the event you arrive at your assigned hole and the second team is absent, you play as a six some; however, we do ask to try to pair up with another twosome before playing six. Pass-holders that have a substitute that is not a pass holder at Sand Creek Station must pay the applicable $15 greens fee. Any pass member that subs for a non-pass member will not have to pay the $15 fee.
We will keep the same point format for 2020. Each team will hand in their scorecard at the end of play each night (with both players first and last names on them), and based on your total score for the 9-holes, points will be awarded. The points are figured by your score relative to 50. If you shoot a 36…you will receive 14 points. (36+14=50). Points will be added at the end of the year to determine the point winners. The overall field will be divided into three flights awarding the top three teams in each flight with credits. These credits can be used to purchase pro shop merchandise, food or beverage items, or golf. If a player has a substitute that is on a winning team, the credits awarded will be placed onto the original player’s account.
All credits must be used by the end of the year.
Both points and pay-outs will be viewable on our website at www.sandcreekgolfclub.com under the “Leagues” Men’s League tab. These totals will be available no later than Friday following every play night.
2021 Hole in One Payouts:
The Hole in One Payouts is a progressive format. The deeper into the season a hole in on is made, the bigger the payout. Example, if someone makes a hole in one during week 1, they total payout is $144 (one dollar per league member). If someone makes a hole in one in week 5 with no recorded hole in one in the previous weeks, the total payout would be $720 (144 players at one dollar per week times five $144×5=$720). Any residual money left in the hole in one account typically is given to a local charity or course improvements. This is voted upon at the Fall Meeting/Steak Feed.
Post Season Play:
After the Men’s League season is finished, we will honor the $15 rate on Wednesday evenings only, after 5:00pm for the remainder of the year. This is a nine-hole rate that will only apply on Wednesday and after 5:00pm. The rate only applies to Men’s League Players who paid the $135 entry fee.
Thank you very much for your participation in our 2021 Men’s League. We appreciate your business and continuous loyalty of our golf course.
