2. Revise rule #12……….Weather related cancellations

If there is inclement weather, Mark will make the call if we play that night by 5pm and that involves all teams. Inclement weather is normally rain/lightening or cold weather. If it is 40 degrees or higher we will play. If it is lightly raining (garden variety) we will play. Mark will make the final decision.

If there is a rainout, there will be no skin refunds.

If a team leaves because of playable rain or cold weather, they will forfeit the round. The opposing team will play the round and rule number 10-A will determine the scores.

8. Revise rule 4 - If you hit 2 balls in the pond on hole 4, you may proceed to the drop zone next to the bridge and continue your play. Penalty shots added of course. Hole number 4

This rule was voted in!


Balls are considered “out of bounds” beyond the white stakes on hole 9. You may take a “line of flight” drop with a 1 stroke penalty. If you hit your ball into the hazard two times, you may proceed to the drop area, which is next to the bird house, and continue play. Just a note, the boundary stakes on hole 9 start in the woods at the dogleg (pine tree) and continue all the way past the bunker that is along number 9 green. Any ball past that boundary (number 7 fairway) is out of bounds and will result in a one-shot penalty and a drop.
