Make a tee time and play any time on your designated days of the week. Each week we play a nine hole stroke play tournament, or other game. (See yearly calendar.)
In addition to an annual membership dues, game fees are required every time you play an event. (Green fees and cart rental sold separately.) The games fees are used to pay out winnings. 100% of game fees are paid each week.
Only one membership is required to play in Men, Women’s, Sr. Men’s or Couples.
Q. Do you use 9 or 18-hole handicaps in your Association?
A. As most of our association events are 9-hole events, our handicaps are kept as 9-hole handicaps. When we have 18-hole events, we double the handicaps.
Q. Why did I not win any money even though I shot below my average score?A. As with any competition, there is an element of luck dependent on the performance of other players, size of flights, course conditions, flag placement and weather are all factors that affect scores universally. These factors often result in some weeks winnings being lower than other weeks.
Q. Why have I suddenly changed flights without my handicap changing?
A. Flights are automatically generated by the computer system every week. Flight 1 contains the lowest handicaps, Flight 2 contains the next lowest, and so forth. As the individuals who play vary from week to week, this can result in a player being occasionally assigned to a flight they are not accustomed to playing.
Q. How do the Tees I play affect my handicap?
A. The slopes for each Tee are used in the handicap calculation. Additionally, those who play from forward tees will consistently shoot lower scores on average, thus resulting in a lower handicap. As an example, Player 1 always plays from the white Tees, averaging a gross score of 50. Player 2 always plays from the red Tees, averaging a gross score of 45. As such, Player 2 will have a handicap roughly 5 lower than player 1.
Q. Why did my handicap go down even though I shot above my average score?
A. Handicap calculations are based upon the 10 most recent scores (minus the score that is still in process of being scored.) Every time a new score is entered the oldest score is dropped. Sometimes this results in handicap movement in the opposite direction of what is expected based only on the most recent score. Handicap calculation also drops high and low scores which helps prevent sandbagging.
Q. Does my handicap index reset at the beginning of each season?
A. No, we start with your previous year handicap. You do not start at zero unless you are a brand new player without any benchmark handicap index such as a UGA index or a handicap from another association.
Q. What tees do Association Members play?
A. Men play Blue Tees each weekly event unless modified by a specific game. Sr. Men play White Tees each week unless modified by a specific game. Super Seniors over age 75 may play from whatever tee they choose. Women play gold tees each week unless modified by a specific game. Couples Play white tees (women may choose to play gold tees.)
Q. Is there a schedule of events available?
A. Yes, the presidents sets up a schedule of events and posts it at the clubhouse, online, and makes copies for members to take home. So it’s important to read the calendar carefully. Link to Event Calendar
A. Yes, In addition to weekly game fess, green fees are also be required to play on the course. Most members buy discounted punch passes when they know they will play 20 or more events.
Q. If I miss a social event or member appreciation giveaway, can I get reimbursed?
A. Unfortunately, due to the nature of most of these events, they are “use it or lose it” bonuses for members. We realize it is impossible for everyone’s schedule to attend each and every event, but we try to do several events to make up for this.
Q. Do I need to have a team member?
A. No because most events are individually scored. (Excluding couples division.) We do occasionally have scrambles where two members from the association team up. We can help you find a partner if you don’t have one. A lot of members do sign up with friends so they can golf together. You must play your weekly games with at least on other registered member. Your scorecard must be attested by another member of the association to count.
Q. Is there a Junior league at Remuda?
A. Not at this time. There is no weekly competitive league similar to the men’s. However, we do host a summer learning academy for juniors that includes weekly classes and a closing tournament.
