Semi-Finals/Finals

For the semi-finalists, the League will pay your semi-final (front 9) greens fees. You will pay California the marginal fee for the extra nine holes and cart fee, if applicable.  Ultimately, you will be playing 18 holes on August 30, either as a finalist on the back nine or in the scramble on the front nine. 

Year End Scramble:

Just a reminder that the Year End Scramble is a pre-paid night. All league members have already paid their greens fees for this night.  As such, Treasurer Chuck Reckers will be paying California Golf Course 60 greens fees (16 semi-final & 44 scramble) for that night.  For the 11 league teams, your greens fees for the scramble have been paid to the League already.  All you need to do is pay the course for cart fee, if applicable.

Skins, greenies, and long putt contests will be on a Team basis ($20.00).  Sign-up sheet will be in the briefcase.

Please e-mail Charles Halpin (halpinc@aol.com) to let me know if you are playing or not.  If you know of any other friends, neighbors, or guests that are interested in playing, please include their name and contact information.  Prearranged foursomes would be great but singles we can fit in with a group.  Get the word out to your subs/guest/etc. that we will be taking sign-ups.  Send email to Charlie Halpin (halpinc@aol.com) or phone/text (859-512-1822).
