In addition to Tuesday's 9-Hole Ladies League, the PL9GA coordinates group play by coordinated booking of tee times. Tee times are obtained by the Membership Committee and volunteers. All PL9GA members are eligible to sign up on a first come, first serve basis.
THURSDAY NINERS GROUP
Tee times may be offered Thursday mornings and afternoons. In the event of conflicts with other events on Thursdays, the committee may book tee times on an alternate day.
EMERGING GOLF GROUP (EGG) - PREVIOUSLY CALLED NOVICE GROUP
The Emerging Golfers Group (EGG) is the first step in preparing for league and tournament play. Many lasting friendships are formed during the EGG experience.
A limited number of tee times will be allotted in the weekly Tuesday 9-hole league to accommodate the Emerging Golfers Group. Eligible PL9GA members may sign up in the Golf Shop before 5:00 PM on the Friday prior to the Tuesday league date. "EGG" players are not eligible to participate in the 9-hole league game/challenge and will not be subject to a game fee.
EGG is intended for: (1) new golfers without an established handicap; (2) golfers with a handicap index greater than the maximum allowable limit*; or (3) golfers experiencing or recovering from an injury or illness.
Participants should have a basic understanding of the rules of golf, follow proper golf etiquette and record/post scores in the GHIN system. Pace of play should be closely monitored and the number of strokes must not exceed ESC rules. Tee box selection is optional and should be consistent with the player’s skill and comfort level.
*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.
Depending on the interest level, the PL9GA coordinates weekly group play which is open to all PL9GA members. Typical play time is early AM based on tee-time availability. An email call-for-players announcement is distributed weekly. Players may sign up for 9 or 18 holes based on preference
