Men’s Association 2021
What It’s About – Golfers are invited to join this fun and relaxed league, which meets each Wednesday starting in April and going through September. The tee sheet is reserved for league members from 3:00-6:00 pm weekly, but you are welcome to play any time earlier in the day, if desired. Due to the recent IDOC restrictions, tee times will be required for play and can be done by calling (217) 586-2183 up to 7 days in advance. Included in the $40 membership fee is a CDGA handicap, which is required for play, since we flight players by skill level each week. Please note, all golfers are responsible for their applicable green fee and $5 game of day, each week. As a reminder, Anniversary Passes do not cover league green fees.

Red, White & Why Did I Birdie?????
Each player begins on the white tees of hole #1. Depending on your gross score, play the proper tees on the next hole:
- Double Bogey or higher – Red Tees
- Bogey – Green Tees
- Par – White Tees
- Birdie/Eagle/Albatross – Blue Tees
Red, White & Blue Individual
The Player decides which tees to use:
9-Hole Event: 3 REDS 3 WHITES 3 BLUES
Total Combined Score
Combine the gross scores of you and your partner to determine score for the 9 holes. Pro Shop staff will apply handicap for final result.
18 Hole Course (9 Hole event)
Pro Shop staff will deduct teams handicap from final score.
No Alibi Tourney
9 Hole Event
Instead of deducting handicap at the end, players are allowed to replay the number of shots equaling one-quarter of hdcp. during round.
16 Hdcp. = 4 replays.
Each player hits their tee shot on hole #1. The players then choose the best drive and alternate shots from that position. The player that makes the putt does not tee off on the next hole, continuing to alternate shots until the round is completed.
Chicago Point Quota System (Fill Your Quota)
18 Hole Course (9 Hole event)
Each player is given a point quota based on his handicap. The object is to be the player with the most points over your quota.
2 Man Better Ball
18 hole Course (9 hole event)
Take the better ball of 2 for score on each hole. Subtract team handicap from total. To calculate team hdcp. average your two hdcps over 9 holes, use 90% of the result.
Larry = 14 hdcp. || Moe = 12 hdcp. || Team shoots 36
Team: 14 + 12 = 26 || 26 / 4 = 6.5 || 6.5 x .9 = 5.85
36 gross – 5.85 = 30.15 net.
Ladies Tee Party
2 Man Scramble from the Red Tees.
Player receives 12 inches of string per handicap stroke (9 Holes)
Example – Player A has a 16 handicap. 9 Hole Handicap = 8. Player A receives 8 ft. of string.
The string can be used to move your ball anywhere on the golf course. Once used, the length used must be discarded and not used again. Using your string is not another shot, but a continuation of your previous shot.
A) You hit your 2nd shot on a Par 4 to two feet from the hole. Using 2 ft of string, the ball is moved in to the hole for an Eagle.
B) You hit a shot that rolls in to the edge of the pond. You locate your ball and use 3 ft of string to move the ball from it’s location in the water to dry land and avoid the penalty stroke.
2 man teams. Each player hits tee shot. Select best tee shot and each player plays own ball for rest of hole from that tee shot.
Your mission is simple: shoot par (or better!). With that in mind, look at the hole in front of you, and consider what tees you should play in order to get that par. Players will receive points based on their starting yardage and will be flighted by handicap.
Each player will need at least one glow ball and one glow stick.
Both may be purchased in the pro shop.
4 Player Teams – Scramble format. Play starts at dark. Par 3 Course 18 holes.
