    Handicap Member Newsletter 2022

As we are seeing harsh winter weather for the first time in several years, hopefully there will be some good golfing weather for the rest of January and February before the beginning of our tournament season.

A tentative tournament schedule is in place for our GHIN Handicap Association Membership for 2022 with a “Kickoff” tournament set for Saturday February 26th. A reminder that the handicap service renewals are due by March 1st.

This event will be a casual, social tournament which welcomes ANY GOLFER that has a Village Greens GHIN handicap. This will be a 2 person – random pick – A-B player Captains Choice. Itinerary is as follows. 8:00 Breakfast – 8:30 committee members will speak- 9:00 Shotgun start.

The purpose of this event is to promote the game of golf, allowing players to mingle with others that they may not know. Hopefully, this fun atmosphere will encourage GHIN handicap members to join our Village Greens Handicap Association.

A sign-up will be in the golf shop and entry deadline will be Friday morning the 25th at 7 A.M. This early time will help me establish pairings. Call the golf shop or stop by to sign up.

Each year the Handicap Association holds 8-9 Tournaments for those who are Association $38 Members. These are fun, competitive events for all to enjoy. There are many added incentives for Handicap Association Members.

Payouts will be given for 1/3 of the field in most Association Tournaments. Points will be distributed to players in each tournament to determine a Player of the Year for 2022. There will also be bonus purses added for the following – The Club Championship of Village Greens, the Handicap Cup Championship and to the golfer crowned the Handicap Association Player of the Year 2022.

All participation is encouraged and appreciated and if anyone has any questions please feel free to do so to me or any handicap committee member.

Thank you for everyone’s time and consideration,
