Welcome to the 27th season of the Chippewa Monday Night 2-Man Scratch League!This new season kicks off this Monday, May 4th. We are implementing a couple of changes while maintaining the core ideas from the past few seasons. We will continue our concept of having both seniors (55 and over) and younger players competing for the same prize and skins pot each week. The 55 and over guys play from the white tees — placed at a reasonable distance from the younger players’ blue tees — effectively creating a weekly tournament where a player of any age can compete at scratch, and a team can be made up of a younger guy and an older guy, too. But here’s where we make a couple of changes for 2015: First, there will be NO FEES DUE IN ADVANCE for League this year. Instead, we will simply collect entry fees each week for the league’s 9 holes: $10 for the pot, $10 for skins, and $20 for golf/cart per man. Simple. Everything collected for the pot and skins that week gets paid back out (while keeping carry-over skins!), so the more players entered that week the bigger that week’s pot. Under these rules, players can compete with the same partner each week, or mix it up and play with different partners all the time. Since league entry fees are not collected in advance, a guy can play one time in a season, or five times, or all 18 times — his choice! Come as often as you want or can. Second, there will still be two Steak Nights in 2015, with the first one at Rosemont on Monday, July 13th (11:30 $50 big skins game there that day, too!). The second one will be scheduled at the end of the season. The Steak Night dinners with all the trimmings will cost just $10 extra to whomever wants to eat, payable at check-in on steak night. It’s our way of saying thank you to the league players. Formats for the weekly events will continue to include 2-player scramble, better ball, combined score, shamble, and on steak nights, a series of different formats over three holes each. Bring your A-game! And finally, to eliminate some of the administrative confusion for 2015, note that ALL TIES SPLIT regardless of place, number of teams that tie, or the amount. Much cleaner that way.
