Welcome New OHMGA Members,
Thank you for joining the Oak Hills Men’s Association. Attached to this letter is a summary of the many membership benefits that you will receive as a member. In addition to keeping your handicap other benefits that you will receive include course play loyalty points counted towards free rounds and golf and pro shop discounts.
Please take the time to review the 2019 Tournament Rules, 2019 Local Rules, and 2019 Tournament Schedule and sample Score Card posted on the bulletin board prior to competing. There are some new USGA rules for this year. Handouts are available in the pro shop.
The OHMGA runs major Club tournaments and two tournaments each week for its members called White and Blue Tee events. When playing in a tournament you must play with an OHMGA member. The members of the association have the designation OHMGA after their name on the tee sheet. Scorecards must be signed and attested by the member that you have played in your group.
To make it easier to sign up for the weekly and major club events like the Governor’s Cup and the Club Championship we are going to use our new Golf Genius software located on a designated computer in the Pro Shop. Each week you will get an email with a listing of the weekly tournaments and of course upcoming club events.
When signing up for weekly events you can only use the score from that day for one event. Example if there a 2 white tees events in a week you would have to play twice to post a score in each event.
You must sign up for the event before you tee off. If you sign up for an event and do not post a score you may not enter it again for that week.
Please post all of your scores for your handicap. There are 5 events during the year that are listed as “T” tournaments. When posting your score on the handicap computer you must post these scores as “T” scores.
There will be a season opening 40 player Two Man Best Ball Tournament on Sunday, April 7th. The first 40 players to sign up will participate.
Winnings for events are Pro Shop credit which can be used through the year.
Please make note of the sign-up dates for the Club Championship, Senior Club Championship and the Governor’s Cup (2-man teams). This year we are adding to the Governor’s Cup by having a Blue tee and White tee Bracket. There will be 32 teams in each Division and you can only sign up in one. When you are signing up for events your dues must be paid and if it is a two-man event both player dues must be paid. The Tournament Committee will not accept any late entries.
Club Championship flights will be determined by the total number of sign-ups. The Tournament Committee will adjust the flight handicaps to get an even distribution of competitors. Any flight with more than 16 sign-ups will have a qualifying round. In addition to signing up at the golf course you can sign up online.
Final sign up for the club championship will be May 19. Do not sign up for the Club Championship if you can’t make the dates below. Qualifying rounds if needed will be played on June 15 & 16, (June 22 & 23 are rain dates). All First-round matches will be played on either July 20 or 21. All Quarter final matches will be played on Aug 4 and all Semi-Final matches on August 11. The finals will be played on Sunday August 25th
Oak Hills will be hosting The Shoreline Tournament on Sept 22 this is a competition between 6 clubs (Smith, Ailing Memorial, Fairchild Wheeler, Sterling Farms, Hubbard Heights and Oak Hills).
The tournament is a one-day competition it is Net format with a team consisting of 16 players from each course. The breakdown is 7 players from 0-10 handicap, 7 players from 11-20, President and Tournament Chairman. This is a great way to showcase the Golf course and the great players that we have. The entry fee for each player is 80 dollars. This covers green’s fee, cart, raffle prizes, longest drive, closest to the pin and dinner. We are going to have qualifying to get into each flight. Stay tuned for more details on when the qualifying is going to be held. This is a great team event and we need to have our members get involved to represent the course and our association.
The Oak Hills cup tracks every tournament you play in and if you post a score you will be awarded points and if finish in the money you will get the points according to what you won. These points will be tracked by a new scoring program that is run by Ed when he scores the weekly events. We run a White tee and Blue tee Oak hills cup at the end of the season. You can only play in one of the flights either white or blue.
Best Regards and have a Great Season,
