Tuesday is designated as ladies day at The Plantation Golf & CC. The PL9GA offers weekly league play every Tuesday with a 1:00 PM shotgun start unless so noted due to other club activity. Generally, the playing field alternates between the front and back nine.
All members who wish to play are required to sign up by 5:00 PM on the Friday prior to each Tuesday event. The signup book is located in the Pro Shop. Members may also call the pro shop to signup.
The focus of league play is camaraderie and having fun – not competition. The game is an integral component of weekly league and member participation, therefore, is not optional. A $4.00 entry fee will be charged to all game participants. To ensure fair and equitable play, the USGA rules of golf and PL9GA standing rules are applicable to league play. Maximum handicap index of 40.4* (43 handicap) applicable to all players.
The method used for pairing players is determined by the game format and intentionally varies from week to week to enable players to interact with a variety of other players throughout the season. The Club will pair player groups based on the game format. Pairing format guidelines are as follows:
Individual —players paired with other players with similar handicaps.
Two Player Team—signup list is sorted by handicap and divided into two equal sections. Each team will include one player from each section.
Four Player Team—signup list is sorted by handicap and divided into four equal sections. Each team will include one player from each section.
Prizes are awarded to players on an individual or team basis. Guidelines for prize distribution varies based on the game and is determined by the Golf Pro.
Each week a different hole will be selected. Before game play for the week, someone from the Golf Shop will present tips for the hole for that week. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers regarding the best way to play the hole.
Periodically, there will also be a "Challenge of the Week". After game play, a beverage ticket will be presented to the person/persons who meet the challenge. (Tickets must be used the day of play and the player must be present to win.)
*The USGA Handicap System™ enables golfers of all skill levels to compete on an equitable basis. The maximum allowable handicap index for women is 40.4 (20.2 for 9 holes). This equates to a handicap of 43 when playing from the red tees at The Plantation Golf & Country Club.
