Druids Glen Men’s Club Information
Men’s Night Event Information:
Men’s Night events start every Wednesday from March through October. You must be a Member at Druids Glen to participate in Men’s Night events. Membership Options
Earlier in the year (March through early May), the events will start around 3:30-4 pm (for shotgun starts); and later in the year, the events will start around 5-5:30 pm (for shotgun starts). Some events will be scheduled by tee time, with available tee times starting at 3:30 pm. Members should sign up at the pro shop, use the signup form or email firstname.lastname@example.org for the next week’s Wednesday event prior to Tuesday afternoon. Otherwise, members may be placed on a wait list to determine if they will play during the Wednesday competition (depending on number of players and if there is room to accommodate).
During the first few weeks, the format will primarily be “stroke play.” This is done so that new members who have not established a handicap index will have the opportunity to play multiple 9-hole rounds (the GHIN system combines two 9-hole rounds for an 18-hole combined score) and establish a handicap index.
If a rule is in question throughout the round, a player may either contact the pro shop to resolve, or may play two (2) balls until the hole is finished. If playing two (2) balls through a hole, please contact the Druids Glen Pro or a Men’s Club Board member for a final rules determination prior to signing and turning in your scorecard. If a scorecard is signed prior to resolution, you risk disqualification if the issue was improperly scored.
Event format: 9-holes, front/back sides alternating from week to week
Flights: The Men’s Club assigns players to two different flights, and the players may play from different teeing grounds based on their flight assignment.
Members who are 65 or older: Members in this category have an option to play from one tee closer than the tee assigned to the flight that they are in.
Cost (2017): $30 for a 9-hole round of golf, cart included. If you choose to come out to play holes prior to the event, then there is an additional $10 fee.
