What’s ESC?

A reminder – what’s ESC? For handicap calculations, you are allowed a MAXIMUM score on each hole based on your course handicap and if you go over, you need to circle that score and at the end of your round put your adjusted score in the ESC column.

Please refer to the ESC table in your rosters for your course handicap ESC Maximum. If you are 30 or above (your “course handicap”, not your “Index”), you can have a maximum 9 on a hole. If you actually hit 10 strokes, record 10 strokes for the hole but circle it. You will need to subtract 1 from your final score as your ESC score at the end of your round. If your final score was 107, and that was your only hole > 9, your ESC would be 106. (NOTE: If we are playing a game where we don’t need the full gross score, if the Tournament Committee game sheet says you can “pick up”, then you can instead just record an X9 for that hole instead of a 10 and your final score will be your ESC score). REGARDLESS, PUT YOUR SCORE IN THE ESC COLUMN. That way we are consistent.

If your DB course handicap changes from the 30’s to the 20’s, now you can only record a maximum 8.

If your DB course handicap drops to the 10’s, now you have a maximum 7.

If your DB course handicap drops to single digits, your max is double-bogey. I’m looking forward to getting there! (Yeh, right! That would earn me the “Most Improved” Award for sure !! 🙂

Happy Golfing !

This will be re-visited at the Board meeting and brought to the General Meeting next.
Also noted that Tournament Rules, Standing Rule #5 “Special sign-ups, important notices and information” shall be posted on the bulletin board. Discussion since the women have 2 bulletin boards and which is designated as the “official” notice board? More clarification will be spent on this issue.

Sonja Welin asked about lift, clean and play Beckie and Jill Chase are working on Winter Play rules currently. Beckie noted that if the rules are special for that day’s play, they will be duly noted on the score cards, game card and announced by the pro shop on the P.A system.

Spring Handicap tournament is June 7, 9, 14. A $25.00 entry opens for March 24th.

Ambassador for WGANC: Hillary Frigillana has put out an email asking other clubs what they accept for Winter Rules. Judy Bartoli asked how do you determine Winter rules when they don’t exist? Local Rules supersede and the Tournament Committee decides on was will be accepted.

Invitational: Beckie wants to include in letter to companies we are soliciting for donations; that we are giving some of the proceeds to a charity, locally and for the WGANC Transportation fund. Various ways were discussed for collection of monies towards the charities. Jan McCleery brought up the possibility a Charity committee will be formed.

So that we play the game correctly please remember that if a Rule states that you must DROP the ball make sure you do so anddon’t just bend down and PLACE the ball. I know you want to get a perfect lie for your next shot but it is against the Rules and you will incur a TWO stroke penalty.

For example: When your ball goes in the water DROP a new ball. When taking relief from aeration holes DROP a ball. When taking relief from Ground under Repair DROP a ball please. Get used to doing it correctly! The only place you can place is on the putting green. Nag over.

5. 5. Yellow.
