League News and Updates

2021 RULES Reminders!!

USGA Rules Apply unless noted as a Local/League Rule - Here are some USGA Rules Basics:

Ball hit Out of Bounds - margin marked by White Stakes and Property Fences:  These will be played according to the rules of golf. When ball goes out of bounds, must rehit with penalty of 1 stroke.

Ball hit in Red Penalty Area - margin marked by Red Stakes: 4 options - 
a) play ball where it lies from within the penalty area with NO penalty
b) With penalty of one stroke, drop 2 club lengths from the point that the ball crossed the margin of the penalty area no closer to the hole  
c) With penalty of one stroke, drop anywhere on a line from the point that the ball crossed the margin and keeping that point and the flag in line going back as far as you want
d) With penalty of one stroke, rehit from the position of the last shot.

Ball hit in Red Penalty Area (Environmental Area) - margin marked by Red Stakes with GREEN Tips: 3 options - 
Same as regular red stakes EXCEPT you cannot use Option A.  You are prohibited from playing a ball in a Red Penalty Area marked with Red Stakes that are Green Tipped. 

*IMPORTANT* Local/League Rule - Any unmowed area on the course that is not otherwise marked by White, Yellow or Red Stakes is considered a Red Penalty Area:
The margin of the "Penalty Area" is the line that divides the mowed from the unmowed portions of that area of the course and played as if that line is marked with Red Stakes.

*IMPORTANT* Local/League Rule - Drop Area on Hole #4: On Hole #4, there will be a drop area designated by a Flag each week during league play on the Front 9.  Any golfer that loses their ball on the tee shot on Hole #4, will play their 3rd shot from within 2 club lengths from the Flag that will be placed at the beginning of the fairway on #4.

Conceding Putts:  A golfer can concede his opponents putt as long as it is not for Birdie or Par.  A golfer can also concede his partner's opponent's putt.  Make sure to discuss with your playing partner so that you both understand what you want to do as a team regarding concessions.

Online Scoring  We continued to enhance our Online Scoring and League Management to continue to allow teams to be able to enter their league match scores using a website that will work very well from a Smart Phone or any mobile device or computer browser.  Players will be able to review scores that were submitted and we will be able to automatically score matches and provide Skins and Match results much more quickly.  
We are also planning to update the publishing of results in a more automated way to allow results to be posted to the League Website quicker and also display results on monitors the same evening in the RFGC Clubhouse.    

We will continue to print out Scorecards each week and require teams to review, sign and turn in after matches for the first few weeks.  After everything looks good, we will continue to print Match scorecards, but ask that after entering your scores online, that you hang on to the written scorecards for a couple of weeks so that you can use it if there are any issues with the previous match results.

Final 2021 Rules will be posted by next week May 5, 2021.  Click on the Rules button at the top of the page to review.  

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Pick up your Men's League Team Info Packets each week!!

Every week, make sure that someone from your team takes the Team Info Packet with your team's name on it when checking in.  Each team will get a match scorecard in the Packet - make sure that there is only one scorecard signed by both teams and turned in after golfing each week. 

  • Each team will pick up a Team Info Packet with their name on it.  Each packet will include a Scorecard for the specific match with updated League Handicaps on the back and an Info sheet for the current week with Last Weeks Results.
  • Low and High HCP players for each team must be determined before match.
  • If a player’s Name or HCP is not listed on back sheet, you must get a HCP Slip from the League Coordinators.
  • Please include FULL PLAYER NAMES on scoresheet.
  • The max score to record on any hole is 10.
  • One member of each team MUST verify and sign ONE scorecard.  The completed card will be turned into the Men's League Scorecard bin or League Coordinators after golf.  Make sure that you confirm that someone is turning in a Scorecard for your match before leaving!!
  • One person from each match will Enter Scores online at rfgc.azurewebsites.net using the Secret Code of 2021.

Weekly Low Net Prize   

$40 for 1st Place lowest Net Score, $20 for 2nd Place during head to head match up weeks.
First Tie-Breaker is Lowest Actual Score, then use individual hole scores to break ties.  Must have posted 2 league scores before qualifying for Low Net Prize.

IMPORTANT:  League Subs and Attendance

According to our League Rules - All teams are responsible for making sure that 2 golfers show up each week to represent their team.

If you are having any issues finding someone or there was an emergency, please contact a League Coordinator.  We will help you find someone, but it is still your team's responsibility to find Substitutes.  Our rules state that "Any team that has 4 individual golfer absences during the League Season can be replaced at the discretion of the League Coordinators without a refund of league fees."

Since we started working on the 2018 season, we have been building a list of Substitutes that may be available to golf.  We will only publish their contact info if they choose.  Otherwise, plan ahead when you know that you need someone.  DO NOT WAIT Until Wednesday before golf to find a sub - it does not work well.

Thanks again to everyone who joined the league this year - our ultimate goal is to ensure that each team and golfer has someone to compete against each week.
