Spirit of the Game


In the etiquette section of the rules, states;


“Golf is played, for the most part, without the supervision of a referee or an umpire. The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players  and to abide by the Rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, irrespective of how competitive they may be. This is the spirit of the game of golf. ”


NOTICE:  

To Sign Up : Weekly Game sign up will open about 7:30 Wednesdays. Fill out an envelope, (name, member number, and game date) put $5.00 in it ( or required additional fee if it a meal day ), seal it then put it in the drop box next to the envelopes. If you have money on account, make a note on the envelope and leave it empty. You MUST have an envelope with your name on it in the box to play the next Wednesday. The entries will be removed from the dropbox Saturday at 12:00 noon and the Pairings will be made up from those. The signup will be closed and no entry envelopes will be available from that time. 

There is a standby sheet. The Wednesday Game will be closed Saturday at noon. You may put your name, phone number and handicap on this Stand-By Sheet in the Men's League book. If I need a replacement player or a fill in, I will use one from the proper handicap on the Stand-By Sheet.

Remember: You must cancel before Monday by 10 am if you cannot play or you will not be allowed to play for the next 2 weeks. That is in the By-Laws. Call Bruce first (772-664-1946), if he cannot be reached then call the Pro Shop to cancel.

The Pro Shop cannot  make any additions to the tournament. Sign the Stand-By Sheet. 

Remember, we are all volunteers so be nice, we have feelings too.

Also as a reminder:

You cannot signup on this website at any time. It is not monitored every day.


                                            JOKE of the Moment                                         

A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.
The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.
"Will you spend this on green fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked.
"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. I haven't played golf in 20 years!"
"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a hot shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."
The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that?"
The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking and golf."

Current Handicap assignments to Flights and Tees as follows:

Men's League TEE assignments 

are determined by your Handicap Index

Simple: If your GHIN Index is 17.9 or less you play from the Blue Tees.

18.0 to 33.3 you play from the White Tees.  33.4 and up you play from the Green Tees

  If you are over 80 years old, you may use the tee of your choice, but once chosen you have to live with it for 6 months. Also you will be given the handicap appropriate at that tee box according to the GHIN INDEX system.


  FLIGHTS:  The Golf Genius program groups players into flights by index. Then converted to handicap according to tee assignment.

Flights are as follow: 

 Flight 1: Handicap  0 thru 16  Blue Tees 

                                       min index 0                                                     max index 17.9         

 Flight 2: Handicap 16 thru 22  White Tees 

                                        min index 18.0 

                                        max index 23.3


 Flight 3: Handicap 22 thru 29  White Tees                                             min index 23.4                                               max index 33.3

                                          max index 41.0

MAX HANDICAP for Barefoot Bay Golf Course is 34 per Ernie Cruz


This Change was discussed with our members at the January 24th, 2018 General Membership meeting. 

Golfer:  You must be the worst caddie in the world!

Caddy:  No Sir, we couldn't 'ave a coincidence like that.


Golfer:  I've never played this poorly before.

Caddy: You've played before?



Golfer:  "Think I'm going to drown myself in the lake."

Caddy: "Think you can keep your head down that long?"

 If you have a clean humorous  golf joke, use the contact page and send it to us.

Why we don't use caddies at BFB..
