  1. Timber Trace in Pinckney Huntmore golf course in Brighton Moose Ridge in South Lyon Inkster Valley in Romulus
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
