need help

4 posts in this topic

At our course we play four times a week. Wed at 12 and fri at 12. Sat and Sun at 9. We usually have anywhere from 12 to 24 golfers who all have points established . Once in a while somebody will show up and our rule is until they have three rounds they are froze at whatever the pro says they are. The most they can help is plus 3 and hurt is - 3. After three rounds they have points. We put up $15. Ten of those dollars are for team points on front and back ( most over ) we also have $2 individual points if you want to get in the pot for most over. We also put up $3 for par three scats . My question is how is the money divided if only 9 holes are played because of weather ? I say half all is fair  but I got to get everyone to agree. Also who tells if we can continue play or stop. I suggested the person in charge of pro-shop. He should know if play can continue and make the call. Also we set a 5 hour time frame to complete the round. After that the pro shop manager makes the call. I need help on this one. Today we had 24 players. It rained hard with lightning so played was stopped. One team finished all 18 but they were the only team. All teams completed 9 so I said pay half back and I got into it. The winners of the front 9 claimed they won it all I said no. Any help please

If I actually understood how your system worked, I might be able to help, but have to plead transatlantic ignorance. ;-)

The only thing I understood was your 5 hour limit on completing a round.

5 hours!   If that's the limit, then you have guys liable to be  taking more than 5 hours? :bugout:

What you do with the rest of the money >? . Do you just pay the entire amount that was put up even though only 9 holes were completed ? We have some angry people that they did not get 1/2 their money back when it rained. We put up money for the front and back 9 holes. Only 9 holes were completed. Our course is short and you should complete 18 holes in 3.5 hours. We used the 5 hour limit because some would say that when the weather clears they will go back out and play. A decision has to be made so this is not an all day event. It rains and someone makes the call that no more golf today, then if 9 holes were completed them the other money is give back. Just need a suggestion on how others do it in a weather thing like this

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
