We hope everyone has fun out on the course this season and enjoys playing these games! And remember…in this league, the most important thing is “forming friendships” by having fun!!

Only returning members from the previous year are eligible to contend for the Most Improved Golfer award.
WEEKLY PLAY PRIZES AND RECOGNITION
After completion of play on the shotgun day of each month, a prize or token, up to a maximum of one per weekly play, will be given to a player for eagles, birdies, and/or chip-ins during league play for the previous month.
Recognition will also be given to the players winning the weekly low gross and low net distinctions during league play for the previous month. Special recognition will be given to anyone who makes a hole-in-one during league play, of course!
GAME OF THE WEEK
An optional Game of the Week (GOW) is offered each weekly play day for a $2 buy-in. Cash prizes are given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Players do not have to be present to win (see League Rules and Procedures).
Every player contributes 10¢ to the putt pot for each three-putt during their round. The player with the lowest total putts for that week wins the pot. Player must be present to win.
FWO WEEKLY CHALLENGES
GROSS SCORE – The actual total number of strokes you made at your ball.
NET SCORE – Your score after subtracting your handicap from your gross score.
LOW PUTTS – Total number of putts for the round. Double Par Rule X counts as a 3-putt, unless one decides to putt from the farthest putt of the group and makes it in the hole in less than 3 putts. In that case, you may use that putt number for your putt total on that hole.
SEASON AWARDS CRITERIA
Most Eagles, Birdies, Chip-Ins: The Prize Chair will keep a record of the eligible members making the Most Eagles, Birdies, Chip-ins, and weekly Low Putts throughout the season and an award will be presented to each winner.
