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. ”
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 12 pm if you cannot play or you will not be allowed to play for the next 2 weeks. That is in the By-Laws. Call / Text 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
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 in the "Member's Corner" of 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.
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
Handicap 29 thru 34 Green Tees
min index 33.4
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?"
Why we don't use caddies at BFB..
