The Men’s League is in its 7th year. It’s a friendly recreational golf league with a little competition. We play every Wednesday from April 26th to the end of September (27th), then we wrap up the season with a banquet and prize presentation on October 4th.
The cost to join the League is $125 plus tax. The price covers prizes throughout the season plus the year end banquet dinner.
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 BLUE tees for regular players and WHITE tees for Senior players (over 55) and anyone with a handicap index greater than 24.
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 2016 Majors are as follows:
US Open – June 14
British Open – July 19
PGA Championship – Aug 9
Tour Championship – Sept 27
In addition to the Majors, there will be 3 designated tournaments as follows:
June 28 – Better Ball Championship (2 man teams)
July 26 – Three Club Championship (players may only use 3 clubs)
Aug 30 – 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.
