If you would like a wallet-sized laminated card containing the Summer League schedule, parings, phone #'s, and the CCS schedule, let me know and I'll make you one. Cost $2. I'll have some at Idlewild.

Is there a fall league going on now?  If so, I would like to know the dates, places & times in order to get in 3 rounds in order to establish an average for next year's leagues.

The spring league signup deadline is Wednesday 3/14/12. The meeting will be the following Saturday (3/17/12) at 10 AM at Idlewild. We could meet around hole #1, or the shelter right before it. We'll play draw doubles for those interested after the meeting. Please sign up by the deadline so I can calculate the averages by the meeting date or round up another player if need be.

Let me be the first...any thoughts on PDGA sanctioning for the leagues (see Fred Salaz' thread in the Ace Race forum)? Also, being new, do the winter tournaments count in calculating averages, or only league play? I've done five of the former, but none of the latter. Thanks Dave! --Jeff A.

Jeff Our first meeting is at 10am at Idlewild on Saturday the 17th. You're welcome to attend and bring up the PDGA sanctioning for discussion. The winter tournaments do not count toward getting your average. You still need to qualify.

Our league director is  DWright contact him if you are interested in leagues or just show up on the 17th.

Spring League Signup Deadline is Saturday March 15th. We will be meeting at the shelter by hole 3 at Idlewild at 12pm to pick teams and course schedule.

This is a handicapped league. If you've never played leagues before we will need to have an average for you so we can get a handicap.

If you have played in at least 3 course challenge events I should be able to get an average for you without the need to qualify.

If you're new to the sport and haven't competed before then you would need to show up for at least 3 spring league nights to qualify for Summer.

It is free to Qualify and all are welcome to attend.

PM me with any questions or if you would like to be included.

Thanks,

Phil Miller
GCFDA League Director

As a newer member of leagues (two years), I want to encourage tons of new folks to try this out. I was worried when I first tried that I wouldn't fit in. But it's a great group, playing a wide variety of courses in town, and a great experience. We are paired by A/B random draw, so if you're concerned about your skill level, the pairing and the handicaps make it all work out great & fairly competitive. It's a great way to unwind after work mid-week. C'mon out!

Here's the tough part: club members pay in a whole $12 for 10-14 weeks of enjoyment, with some merch payout to the top teams at the end. ;)

Jeff is right. Leagues are a good mid-week way to play a competitive round in a casual atmosphere. When I first started playing I didn't know a whole lot of people that played and leagues were a great way to get acquainted with other people in the sport. From there it was easier to show up at Course Challenges because a lot of the same guys play that series as well.  It's nice to show up where people know you and youI don't feel like so much of an outsider.

^^^ Y'all don't want Ben in league do ya? ;)

Yep, they'll pair up players, decide the sequence of courses & then play some Idlewild, all starting at noon on the 15th. I'm guessing leagues will then start at Winton Woods (to finish before dark) on the 19th.

To start, please do not misunderstand this post. I am not trying to change/challenge/critique the current league that is in place. I understand its purpose, I have played qualifying rounds with the league and it is a great atmosphere. The group of guys in the league is a great group of guys and are a pleasure to play a round with. That being said, is there, or has there been, any interest in a forming a pdga sanctioned league? Of course it would have to be on a different night so that it doesn't impose on the current league. I am just throwing it out there because I know it is something that would be of interest to me. Sorry for jacking the thread

Yes there is interest. One of our members is thinking of running one this season. The details are not done yet, but it is in the works.

I think a sanctioned league would be a good idea. However I don't believe this league will ever go that far. 

When this league was created I think it's first intention was to get new players into a competitive league without pressure. It teaches newer players the rules of the game and pairs them with a more experienced player to learn from. I think sanctioning them would kind of defeat this purpose.

Good point Phil, but I can see room for both.

Agreed! Since I've heard sanctioned leagues work best if you repeat at a course, I think it would be really good to feature the big four (Idlewild, Mt. Airy, Lincoln Ridge & Osage Grove) for something like this. Maybe call it the "League of Extraordinary Courses". Maybe not getting beaten up by them EVERY week, but rotate, like every other Tuesday or something. Could get to each of them twice in eight weeks or three times in 12... I'd be in for something like that, and still do Wednesdays!

From what I understand, a sanctioned league is at one course for about ten weeks. It is handicapped, but not a team league. Like Phil said, the Wed. night league will most likely not go that far, it is not the purpose. I do feel that this area with the number of great courses and players could support a few different leagues, both traveling and stay at one course.
