September Happenings at Hart Ranch GC
F. Scott Fitzgerald said “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall,” and hey, so can your golf game. We have some new things happening this year, including a Monday Night League and a Fall Tournament Series. Read on to find out what they’re all about…
Monday Night League –
On Monday nights starting September 11th, we’ll be playing golf from 3pm-6pm. What’s different? Should you choose to accept, we’ll play a birdie madness format, where birdies accrue towards a season-long (4 weeks or until it gets too cold) pot that builds every week depending on the number of players. If you’re at or near the top of the list at the end, you’ll win! So it’s fair, gross birdies will count for 1 point, and nets will count for 0.5. Therefore, a gross eagle will count for 2 and a net eagle will count for 1.5. You’ll want to participate as many weeks as possible to have the best chance of winning. If this all sounds confusing, don’t worry about it. Just tally up your score and we’ll take care of it.
The other half of the Monday Night League will be a weekly game, where we play a stableford-quota format. Basically, your 9-hole course handicap (CH) will be subtracted from 19. Your goal is to meet your quota to get in on the pot. For example, if your 9-hole CH is 5, you’ll need to get 14 points or more to meet the quota. Bogeys are worth 1 point, pars 2, birdies 3 and eagles 4. If we don’t have enough initial participation, we will tweak the format and play a stableford-net game, where the top finishers each week will get paid out. This way there will be more money available for winners.
The cost each week is $10, so $5 goes into each pot. Winnings will be paid out in club credit. After the round, we’ll all get together at the O.C., play games on the simulator and watch Monday Night Football. There will be additional contests afterwards, so stick around! We’ll offer a food discount to whoever plays and stays for the games.
Fall Tournament Series –
Our first fall tournament is Retribution of the Ranch on September 23rd, followed by the 3-Sticker on October 14th and Heaven & Hell on October 28th. If you participate in all three, you’ll be entered into a points contest, where you’re awarded points based on how well you finish. There will be a prize at the end for the top finisher(s).
Keep in mind that we have the Children’s Miracle Network shotgun at 8am this Friday, September 8th (tee times available after 1:20pm), the East-West Cup on September 11th and 12th and the LA Open on September 30th. As always, please let us know if you have any questions, and we’re looking forward to seeing you for some fantastic fall golf at Hart Ranch!
