RLMGA Play for 2017
(1) On play days any suggestions about formats or improvements for pace of play etc. should be written on the back of the official scorecard to allow consideration by the Tournament Director and/or the MGA Board, if appropriate. (2) For the 2017 season, every third Thursday of the month - from April to September - will be FUN DAY. This will allow MGA members to participate in new and unique events outside of the normal play day type of games. FUN DAYS will be identified on the GHIN on line sign up. (3) For all MGA events in 2017 - play days and Saturday tournaments - there will be a team captain identified in each playing group. The team captain will be responsible for the Pace of Play as well as tokeep the official scorecard (computer generated). In addition, the captain will select one other person in the group to keep a back up scorecard. The back up scorecard will be utilized to verify with the official scorecard each person’s official post able score for the day. This will hopefully alleviate the ongoing errors that the handicap committee continues to find with MGA scoring. (4) For Saturday tournaments, we will be modifying starting hole locations as well as cart staging so that players who are the farthest from the clubhouse will get a head start on getting to their hole. This should help to improve Pace of Play. The deadline for signing up for Saturday tournaments will be 12 PM two days before (Thursday). (5) Finally, the deadline for signing up for play days will be Noonthe day before - Noon Monday for Tuesday play and Noon Wednesday for Thursday play. The pros will be making the pairings by 12:30 and the Tournament Director (TD) will be checking them about 3. They will go on the web after the TD has checked them.
