Summer Rec League play will be at the following courses this year: Glenross, Golf Club of Dublin, Rolling Meadows, Safari, Wee Links/Sports Ohio, and Oakhaven. Tee times will range from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Groups will be put together according to grade and ability, please note in the comments area requested pairings, if any. You will need to be at the tee 15 minutes before your scheduled tee time which will be communicated on a weekly basis.
The goal of these programs is for participant to learn the game of golf, understand the rules and etiquette of the game, and to have fun.
For the Summer Rec League, the #1 issue from year to year is “pace of play”. It is imperative that we keep the players moving along to avoid overly long rounds. To assist with this, we ask that a parent volunteer walk with each group. Their role is to encourage the players, while making sure they keep moving. This is achieved by limiting practice swings, being at their ball ready to hit, playing “ready golf”, and following the rules set forth by the Director of the program. Further, if a player is struggling, the player will be encouraged to pick up their ball and drop where other players have advanced to.
It is also extremely helpful to have at least two coordinators for each division. The goal of the first coordinator is to be the starter. Their role is to organize the groups and make sure that each group is ready to tee off at their appointed tee time. The second coordinator will be there at the finish and collect the scorecards to be turned in to the Director of the program each week. The program Director will coordinate this with everyone.
