Policies and Procedures

Villages Golf Club has it's own Policies for Cancellations, No Shows and Inclement Weather.

Cancellation Policy
If a registered participant is unable to play in an event for whatever reason, the participant is
to cancel with the event leader.  The leaders phone number will be posted.

A registered participant who cancels less than 24 hours before the start of an event
​or who does not show up for the event (no show) will forfeit his/her entire entry fee.
The Executive Board has the ability to waive this in the event of extreme situations
but it is not a given they will do so.

Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather on the day of the event,
the participant MUST go to the golf course.
The weather at the course may be entirely different than
at your home or even within a few miles of the course. 
The course and the event leaders will decide on cancellation.
Registered participants who do not come to the course (no show)
will not receive a refund if the event is cancelled.

Scoring Tips
When scoring your game at an outing, each cart should
maintain a scorecard, recording gross scores for each golfer.
Please eliminate the use of slashes, dashes and other scores on the official scorecard.
Score keepers can check with each other periodically throughout the round so that the final
scoring and collaboration for the group will take a minimal of time once the round is finished.
Scoring of the competition will be handled by the Handicap Administrator within a few days.
Gross scores only and software ensures that mistakes in team scoring are minimal.
Those who are members of the GHIN system should enter their scores into GHIN themselves.

Handicap Secretary Event Scoring Notes 

Scoring events is completely done by the Handicap Secretary including the drawing of blinds.

All scorecards are to be turned in, if you need a copy, take a picture.

Conflicts between scoring cards is always in the favor of the OTHER teams (i.e. the highest score is taken) so it is very important to ensure that both scorers have the same numbers.  If you are unsure of a person's score, ask at the next tee box and not beside the green for speed of play purposes.

Maximum Score is Net Triple Bogey regardless of whether the card score is higher.

"X" (a pickup on the hole) is given a Net Triple Bogey, which will count for individual scoring and team scoring (I.e. you can not be disqualified for picking up on single hole).

All ties are broken using VGC policy, which is , in order until the tie is broken

1. Compare Last 9 holes (10 through 18)

2. Compare last 6 holes (13 through 18)

3. Compare last 3 holes (16 through 18)

4. Compare the score on the last hole (18)

5. Work your way backward (17 through 1) hole by hole until the tie is broken

6. If all of that fails, coin flip
