  1. Buying our first "new" car

    Question. Have you considered an Equinox? Very good vehicle, I know 3 other people besides me that has one. Everybody loves it.
  2. Timber Trace in Pinckney Huntmore golf course in Brighton Moose Ridge in South Lyon Inkster Valley in Romulus
  3. How to address a cheat (or call him out)

    I run a league with similar rules. Every year I have people asking if they can be on the league. Why? Because it is FUN. The just want to play in a league and have fun.
  4. Risk reward hole with no forced carry?

    I disagree that closer is always better. For instance, I would rather have a full shot into the green than a 1/2 or 1/4 shot. Of course, this is just my opinion.
  5. Young People not Playing. Golf Leagues Shrinking

    Seems kind of weird that all the golf leagues start at 3:00. On the league I'm in charge of, the first T-time is supposed to be 6:00; however; if there is no league in front of us, sometimes we get out earlier; around 5:30. Most of the courses that have leagues around where I live have ones that start around 5:30 - 6:00 for those that work.
  6. Golf League Questions

    Thank you again for all of your information/help. I'll check out the web-based solution; also I'll check out the other software to determine if I should use that or Excel. What I would love to have done automatically, is when I put in the scores it will calculate the handicap, standings, and average for each hole. I don't know if it is possible, but I would love it to determine the points for each week based on criteria I specified. This year I it was two man teams and each team had an A and B player. The A player played the A, and the B played the B. Then the points were added up for team results.
  7. Golf League Questions

    I am new to this forum, so if I shouldn't start out with questions, let me know. I am the secretary for our golf league, and we handicap 100%. I figure it out based of 35 (front is par 36; back 34). I take the previous three weeks average, minus 35 and that is their handicap. A person on the golf league said we should be using 85%, taking their handicap at that point and multiplying by 85%. He said it should more evenly things out. I'm not sure I understand how that would work, the giving of strokes should be the same correct? It shouldn't make a huge difference, or am I missing something? If anyone runs a league, let me know. Also, is there any golf league software out there anyone can recommend? Thanks.
