2017 Men’s League F.A.Q.

Who can play?

-Anybody, member or not, can play in men’s league on a two person team. If you are not a member of West Bolton Golf Club you have two payment options. The first is our 9-hole rate each week. The second option is a discounted rate paid for each week in one sum in advance to the league season. Must be 18 years of age or older. 

What Day?

-Tuesday nights.

When?

-Tee-Times run between 3:00 and 6:00 and are provided to groups via e-mail at the beginning of the season. We play nine holes and enourage a post round beverage. Let’s say between 7 and 9pm.

How much does it cost?

-League costs $45. This price includes two steak dinners, payouts for the top teams in each division, and weekly giveaways for closest to the pin.

What is the format?

-Two person team stroke play. High and low handicaps from each team play eachother. 2 points per hole (2 for a win, 1 for a tie, 0 for a loss). The team with the most points at the end of the season will win the league. Handicapps are adjusted based on league scores ONLY from week to week by the league administrator.

Are there divisions?

-There are divisions which are built based on your team’s overall handicap at the start of the season. Historically we have had two divisions (Apple and Orange). Each division will have three top placing teams. Your team will only play teams in your division and each team plays eachother once. Based on the numbers this has meritted a 14-15 week season for league.

What if I do not have a partner?

-If you are interested and dont have a partner in mind please contact Colin O'Brien. Based on past years, we have been able to pair several individuals with a partner based on handicap and tee-time preference. 

Can I be a Substitue?

-We understand that league is a time commitment. For those of you who cannot commit to playing every tuesday but still want to be involved please send your information to Colin O'Brien. Non-member substitues will still have to pay the 9 hole rate.

What if i'm not a great golfer?

-Trust us, you aren't alone. Skill levels range from scratch golfers to high handicaps. Our focus for Men's Leauge is bringing golfers together for a entertaining night. 

What if I do not have a handicap?

-For the first 2 rounds your handicap will be calculated based on your suggested handicap (average score for 9 holes). After that, you will recieve an adjusted handicap based on your scores from previous weeks.
*Updated Handicap Formula= ((Avg. score - 33.3) x 113) / 112
