2020 Senior League
Our goal is for you to have some fun, win some prizes, and enjoy a nice steak, chicken or salmon
dinner at the close of the season. The league is co-ed with ladies and gentlemen playing together. League entry fee is $60 paid in cash or check(checks made out to Richard Lund) at the time of sign up. Your entry fee entitles you to play in the league,
makes you eligible for prizes, hot dog, hamburger days and gets you one ticket to the awards banquet at the end of
the season. All the entry fee proceeds go back to the players in the form of prizes, gifts certificates and the year-end
banquet. 2020 League will start on Tuesday, May 5th.
Speed of play: We should always be aware of playing “Ready Golf”. Play is on Tuesday morning’s; shotgun start with
carts. The course is closed for maintenance on Tuesday mornings. Start time is at 9:00 a.m. in May/June with an
earlier start at 8:00 a.m. for July/August, depending on when maintenance is done. We will operate on the assumption
that we will be playing, even if it’s raining where you live. A final decision usually will not come until the morning of
play, so call the clubhouse if in doubt. Senior coffee is always available free ☺
Makeup rounds are accepted. We prefer you play on league day but realize things do come up. Makeup rounds may
be made up one week prior to being gone or one week after but must be completed prior to next Tuesday’s league.
Please understand that last week of play cannot be made up for any reason. Makeup scores (3 maximum) will be
included for weekly points, but only regular weekly play counts towards the weekly events/prizes. All makeup rounds
should be witnessed by another golfer, signed by the golfer making up the round and then turned into the pro shop
immediately after the round. Makeup scorecards should be marked “SENIOR MAKEUP” with the date of play being
made up. Score card is to be signed and may be attested to by fellow golfers other than another senior in the league.
Even though this is not the US Open, there are prizes at stake. We will play by The Rules of Golf. Richard Lund and
Mike Walz comprise the “Committee” and have final authority to resolve any issues. The best general advice is, play
the course as you find it, and play your ball as it lies, don’t touch it, move it around between the tee – green and count
all strokes. There are no gimmies (All putts must be putted in the cup)!
Out of Bounds: In 2019 there was a new option added for out of bounds shots. The Senior League will observe the
Rules of Golf and the new option available. Out of bounds is marked by white stakes on #1, #5, #6 and #9 fairways.
Out of bounds is also on #1 and #4 where shots are outside the course fence.
Score Cards: Please turn in one score card per foursome with LAST NAME and FIRST INITIAL of each player,
“legibly printed” on them. Unreadable scorecards cannot be entered into weekly scoring and will not be
included. Scorecards are to be agreed to by all players in the foursome, signed and attested. Signed and
attested scorecards are final.
Point Parameters and league postings: Each week I will post weekly and season total stats along with weekly event
winners in the pro shop. They will also be posted online at mountainvistagreens.com. Scores will not be posted until
the following Saturday so that makeup’s can be entered for that week’s play. I enter all the scores myself so if there
are discrepancies or questions don’t hesitate to ask. You can receive points in a couple of ways. You will receive 20
points for showing up each week, and 2 point for each person you beat and 1 point for each person tied.
Handicaps: For new players, starting handicaps will be based on three 9 – hole rounds turned in prior to the first week’s
play. Players from prior year’s play will start the with prior season’s ending handicap. The software the league uses
will calculate handicap changes automatically during the season.
Prizes and Points: There are weekly events which are both individual and team. At the year-end banquet, the weekly
event winners will be announced and the top two individual finishers in each division based on point accumulation
throughout the duration of the season. Certificates will also be presented to the winners… Any questions, please
