Our Men’s League is in its 8th year and is based at Cardinal Redcrest in Newmarket. It’s a friendly recreational golf league with a little competition. We play every Wednesday from April 25th to the end of September (26th), then we wrap up the season with a banquet and prize presentation on October 3rd.
New members are welcome.
The cost to join the League is $125 plus tax. The price covers prizes throughout the season plus the year end banquet dinner.
If you join before January 31st, 2018, the Early Bird registration price is just $99.
Each week there is a weekly competition for low net and a prize awarded to the winner. There is also a season long competition based on cumulative weekly points with prizes awarded at the banquet.
Play each week is from the WHITE tees except during majors when tee decks will vary.
Tee times each week are reserved for the League as follows: 1:30–2:30 for players playing 18 holes and 5:32–5:59 for players playing 9 holes.
Every Monday you’ll receive an email invitation asking whether or not you’re playing that week. All you have to do is click YES or NO. At the same time you can also ask for a specific tee time or specify who you would like your playing partners to be. We encourage players to mix it up as much as possible so that everybody gets a chance to know everyone but most weeks you can play with your regular buddies.
Four weeks of the season are designated as Majors. Each major is 18 holes and will be played from a designated tee deck (not necessarily the one you usually play). Pairings for majors are by blind draw. Points are increased by 50%. The 2018 Majors are as follows:
US Open – June 13
British Open – July 18
PGA Championship – Aug 8
Tour Championship – Sept 26
In addition to the Majors, there will be 3 designated tournaments as follows:
June 27 – Better Ball Championship (2 man teams)
July 25 – Three Club Championship (players may only use 3 clubs)
Aug 29 – Team Scramble (3 or 4 man teams)
Redcrest typically has 3-4 outside tournaments that conflict with our tee times. On those days we play at Ballantrae Golf Club (NOT Maples of Ballantrae). Redcrest is waiting final confirmation of those days & we will advise as soon as we receive them.
Weekly green fees:
18 holes – $53 walking / $69 with shared use of power cart.
9 holes – $36 walking / $44 with shared use of power cart.
