RULES, REGULATIONS and PROCEDURES

For MEMBERS of the

GLENLAKES LADIES GOLF ASSOCIATION (GLGA)

LEAGUE PLAY:

Wednesday is the designated day for League Play.  Unless tee times are modified by the Pro Shop, they will begin at 9:00 a.m.  On special occasions there will be shot-gun starting events. Individual group tee times are assigned by the League Play Chairperson.  Each member is responsible for signing up for play in the Pro-Shop.  The deadline for sign-up is 5:00 p.m. on the Monday prior to League Play.  A $3.00 fee is collected at sign-up. After play, scorecards must be signed, attested, dated and turned in to the League Play Chairperson. An LGA member may play on Wednesday but choose not to participate in the game.

A member will forfeit her entry fee if she fails to cancel by 5:00 p.m. on Monday prior to League Play on Wednesday. Note:  If a player has signed up, NOT paid and does not cancel by designated time, she is responsible for payment.

If the game is cancelled for any reason (inclement weather, lack of participation, etc.) and the player does not intend to play the next week, it is the player’s responsibility to take her name off the sign up sheet and get her money back through the pro shop.  Otherwise, automatic carryover (remaining on the play list for the next week) applies.  However, if a member cancels for personal reasons, there will be no carryover and the member is responsible for picking up her money in the Pro Shop.

Should an LGA Play Day be called due to inclement weather (cold, wind, rain, lightning, etc.) after play has begun, the League Day Chairperson or her substitute will notify the Pro Shop.  If there is any doubt as to whether play should continue, it shall be the responsibility of each group to check with the Pro Shop to find out what decision has been made regarding whether play should continue.  If at least 9-holes have been completed by all participants, the greatest number of holes completed by all participants will be used to determine the results for the game being played.  Exception:  Ace of the Month and Ace of the Year will always be 18-hole events.

Prize winners for League Play will receive certificates of credit from the Glenlakes Pro-Shop.  A list of winners will be posted on the Ladies Locker Room Bulletin Board and emailed to the members.

Should there be a need for a scorecard playoff, the most difficult hole played will be used first, followed by the second most difficult hole, etc. until a winner is determined.

Ace of the Month is held the first Wednesday each month.  Ace of the Year is held the first Wednesday in June.

HANDICAPS:

Effective January 2013, Glenlakes implemented the GHIN system for golf handicaps.  In order to compete in GLGA events, each member is required to have an active and current GHIN handicap.  GLGA members without a GHIN handicap may play in events as a guest and abide by the rules and regulations of guest play.

To establish a current handicap at Glenlakes Golf Club the member may use the latest U.S.G.A. Index from her “away course”.  This index would then be adjusted according to the course handicap table to become a current GHIN handicap at Glenlakes.  In the event the away index is not available, the member may not participate in League Play winnings until five (5) scores have been posted and handicap is made current.  NOTE:  The five (5) scores posted need not be league play but “anytime” play.  A maximum handicap of 36 is the most allowed on play days and for all GLGA tournament play unless otherwise specified. 

Each member is responsible for posting her ADJUSTED scores into the GHIN system immediately after play.  Major tournaments such as the Championship will be posted in mass by a designated LGA representative.  Players will be notified of any mass postings in order to avoid duplicate entries.

Only the GLGA Championship, AGA events, USGA events (including qualifiers) and Marshals shall be posted as Tournament scores.  Scores from invitationals, team play, interclub, etc. shall be posted as regular scores properly adjusted for individual handicaps, mulligans, gimme putts, etc.

RULES OF PLAY:

All League Play Tournaments and Special Events shall be played according to U.S.G.A. Rules, with the exception of Local Course Rules.

The ball will be played down unless conditions warrant “Preferred Lies”.  Players will be notified by the Pro-shop prior to the competition if these conditions exist.  When “Cart Path Only” rule is designated by the Pro-shop, the player may then lift, clean and place the ball through the green.

  • Members have the option of using preferred lies during the winter months. Winter months are defined as January, February and March.
  • You must play the same ball through the green.  Do not change the ball after a tee shot unless the ball is deemed unfit for play, per U.S.G.A. Rules.
  • If a rock or stone is interfering with the striking of the ball in a sand trap/bunker, the player may remove the rock or stone with no penalties incurred.
     
  • For all play at this course, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only.
  • Through the green, a ball that is embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground may be lifted, without penalty, cleaned and dropped as near as possible to where it lay but not nearer the hole.  The ball when dropped must first strike a part of the course through the green.
  • If there is doubt whether a ball is in or is lost in the water hazard on Vista #3, the player may play another ball provisionally under any of the applicable options in Rule 26-1.  If the original ball is found outside the water hazard, the player must continue play with it.  If the original ball is found in the water hazard, the player may either play the original ball as it lies or continue with the ball played provisionally under Rule 26-1.  If the original ball is not found or identified within the five-minute search period, the player must continue with the ball played provisionally. 
  • A drop area has been established on Dunes #16.  The drop area is located across water and to the right of the green.  A player must be approaching the green in regulation, hence, she must be hitting at least her third shot from inside the 150 yard marker.  If the ball goes into the hazard the player may elect to use the drop area.  The player does not have to use the drop area and may proceed under USGA rules for proper play of a ball hit into a water hazard.  (Example counting strokes: 3rd shot goes into the water from inside the 150, 4th out, and hitting the 5th shot from the drop area)
  • A drop area has been established on Lakes #2.  A player must be approaching the green in regulation, hence, she must be hitting at least her second shot.  If the ball goes into the hazard the player may elect to use the drop area.  The drop area is located across the water and to the far left of the green in the closely mown and marked area.  The player does not have to use the drop area and may proceed under USGA rules for proper play of a ball hit into a water hazard.
  • There are four (4) areas on the course that tend to hold standing water and mud:  #1 of the Vista about 100 yards from the green in the center of the fairway; #10
  • of the Dunes located just inside the 150 marker; #11 of the Dunes located on the right side about 120 yards from the green; and on the right side of #14 of the Dunes about mid-way down the fairway.  These areas will be considered ground under repair and USGA Rules 25 will apply (lift, clean and drop, without penalty, within one club length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief).
  • GLGA CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT
  • The Championship shall be the GLGA Championship.
  • In order to qualify to play in the Championship, members must play a minimum of 8 rounds of league playday golf from October 1 until cut-off date for the tournament.  If a member joins later in the year, she may qualify by having a current USGA recognized handicap and playing a minimum of 1 league playday golf each month after joining.  Note: The Board may waive these requirements under extenuating circumstances.
  • Each participant must be an LGA member in good standing with dues paid in full.
  • Each participant will be provided lunch at no charge.
  • STAY FOR LUNCH PROGRAM

Members and their guests are encouraged to participate in the “Stay for Lunch” program held after golf every 3rd Wednesday of each month.  A drawing is held prior to golf of those participating in that day’s playday event for a member to receive her lunch free on that day.  Members are only eligible to win one time per fiscal year (June 1 thru May 31).

PACE OF PLAY:

Each member is requested to help speed up play by following these suggestions: 

Be ready when it is your turn to hit.

  • Watch your ball and those of your playing partners.  Notice where each ball lands and mentally mark the area.
  • Putt out when it will not interfere with another player’s line if other players agree.
  • If the hole in front of you is open, and you have players waiting behind you, please allow that group to play through.
  • GUESTS:

Guests are encouraged to play on League Play-day.  They will not pay the entry fee and are not eligible for prizes.  A guest may play two (2) times per year on League Play-day.  Guests must sign-up in the Pro-Shop by the deadline and pay the course rates in effect at that time.

CHRISTMAS LUNCHEON:

The LGA Christmas luncheon for all members is held the first Wednesday in December at no charge.

BALDWIN COUNTY AREA LADIES GOLF ASSOCIATION (BCALGA):

Each year during the month of May, the BCALGA donates $150 to the girl’s golf team of a local high school.  Schools are chosen on a rotational basis.  The GLGA has designated the day of the April Ace of the Month for GLGA members to donate additional funds at their discretion.  These donated funds will go to the BCALGA to be included with the BCALGA donation.
