4. Groups will not be allowed to congregate either in or outside of the pro shop.
5. While we love seeing you in the pro shop, we would appreciate any questions you have that can be answered over the phone to be done so. Ie. tee time info, golf info etc...

The only way to sign up for Wednesday Play and Standby too is ONLINE.
If you have not received an email grom Golf Genius on how to register to sign up, check your Spam folder first then call me -Bruce 772-664-1946. You can pay by putting an envelope in the box where the scorecards go at the end of a round. I will be keeping a spread sheet on payments so you can put any amount in the envelope. We even accept checks. Every now and then I will post a sheet with who owes how much and who has a credit until we get to have our monthly meetings again.
The Hole in One pool is suspended effective 3/21 because we have limited play. So don't get one!
The Bunkers are IN PLAY as long as the grounds crew power rakes them in the AM. There are no rakes so if your ball is in an unraked spot you may take a drop IN the bunker no closer to the hole. When done smooth your spot with your foot & club. Thanks

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. ”
JOKE of the Moment
My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,
"I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a
I replied, "Your eyesight's perfect."
And then the fight started........
NOTICE: The binder is on the desk by the counter in the Pro Shop. It has information for the men's league.
Current Handicap assignments to Flights and Tees as follows:
Men's League TEE assignments
are determined by your Handicap Index. Updated 1/6/2020 to align to the World handicapping System.
Simple: If your GHIN Index is 18.9 or less you play from the Blue Tees.
19.0 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 World Handicapping 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 18.9
Flight 2: Handicap 15 thru 19 White Tees
min index 19.0

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?"
Why we don't use caddies at BFB..
