Saddleback Ladies & Gentlemen Senior League
The goal of the Saddleback Senior Golf League is to promote the enjoyment of the game of golf by senior (50 and over) golfers and create a fellowship among its members through organized weekly play.
We welcome all senior golfers who find enjoyment in the game of golf and would like to meet other senior golfers. We will strive to have fun, meet new friends and play competitively for prizes in a socially companionable environment without being highly competitive.
We will have weekly games that are all based on net scores using league specific handicaps based on league scores only (no need for a GHIN number). The new World Handicap System (WHS) adopted for 2020 and beyond by the USGA and R&A is built into the software used to administer the league.
The annual fee to join the league is $5 to cover software costs ($5/year per player).
Each week players will pay $5 toward prize money for the day (low net score, 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. depending on the number of players) plus closest to the pin and long putt games (proximity awards are discontinued during the pandemic social distancing policies). In addition, there will be an optional skins game ($2/play day) based on net scores/hole. All prizes will be paid in club house credits and skins prizes will be paid in cash. Players can participate in skins once their league handicap is established (after one round of league play). Players must play with at least one other player who will validate submitted scores.
If you have any questions regarding this league, please contact league managers, Larry Kappel, Chuck Farnsworth or CD Osborne. If any other potential members would be interested in assisting with league operations they are welcome to join us.
Tee Times & Pairings:
League play will begin on Wednesday, May 6th with T times beginning at 7:57 A.M. Players are requested to check in with the league desk by 7:30 so we can utilize the T times set aside by the club for league play that day. First day T times required will be based on the number of registered members. Indications of availability will be collected for the next and following weeks to determine T time requirements. League membership fees ($5), prize fees ($5) and optional skins fees ($2) must be paid in cash or check (no credit cards) to league management in the Tavern, NOT AT THE FRONT DESK. During the pandemic with social distancing policies in effect for both Saddleback and additional policies for league play we are asking all players to pay prize and skins fees four weeks in advance. Each golfer’s account with balances remaining will be maintained by league managers and available on the website. Payment is to be via personal check made out to Larry Kappel, check placed in an envelope with your name and items the check is to cover (annual fee, prize fee & skins fee, if in skins) listed on the envelope. Each week your account will be credited with the fees for that week until your balance is depleted and then you will be asked to replenish it. If a player prefers to pay in cash put the cash in an envelope so marked as above.
Due to social distancing policies at Saddleback during the Wuhan virus pandemic, social distancing at Saddleback are in force with additional social distancing policies governing league play. Those policies have been forwarded to league members, are available on the league website (saddlebackseniors.golfleague.net) and must be reviewed prior to play in the league. Saddleback and League social distancing policies will remain in effect until such time as government and health authorities deem it safe to discontinue them.
