We are considering converting our present Tuesday Handicap Singles play to a 10 Week PDGA Sanctioned League.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A CURRENT PDGA MEMBER TO PLAY IN THE LEAGUE.
This would result in an increase of $1.00 to the weekly fees. This is
the league fee per player prescribed by the PDGA.
This would bring the weekly player fee to $7.00.
Of that $7.00:
$1.00 goes to the club.
$1.00 goes to the Ace Pool
$1.00 is the League Fee.
$4.00 is paid out weekly.
Being a Sanctioned League has the following benefits.
- Helps the PDGA League Program grow.
- Provides insurance coverage for the Park so our league can grow.
- Provides an extra “bump” for the local league
- Special Promotional PDGA Membership Discounts
- Exposure and advertising for your league through PDGA.com
- PDGA members earn points for their participation
- Scores uploaded weekly and posted on the PDGA site via PDGA spreadsheet.
- As an official league, we are more likely to obtain sponsorship.
Right now, singles only
Soon, doubles and Handicaps.
- PDGA returns half of the league fee to the local league for expenses or perks
At present, as part of the PDGA phase one program, only singles play is sanctioned.
This will not affect our Bag Tag Program nor the current Handicap program.
Bag tags are awarded on the basis of Raw score and it will be the raw score that is reported to the PDGA. We will maintain our established handicap procedures and the purse is awarded on the handicapped score.
Once phase two of the PDGA league program goes into operation, they will be calculating the handicap for us and will be keeping track of other statistics such as Aces, bogies, birdies and the like.
Each League “session” will run for 10 weeks and we can run multiple sessions per year.
As you may currently “opt out” of the Ace Pool, you may also “opt out” of league play.
If you do, you do not pay the extra dollar and your scores do not get uploaded to the PDGA and you do not earn points.
If approved, our first League match will be May 21st
Please cast your vote in the right column. Eleven “yes” votes will carry.
