Highlights from Arrowood tournament ... Results of 2-day Arrowood eclectic tournament:

It’s been many years since we last played Arrowood, and the one hole I remembered was #16, an island green over water with the wind blowing.  #18 wasn’t a walk in the park either with another carry over water to the green.  The course was in good condition, and with the eclectic format, how can anyone not have fun.  No pressure, just try to better your previous day’s score.  It was suggested that we have more eclectic tournaments.    Customer service was great, and the free drink was a welcomed treat.  Thank you, Gil, for a time-consuming scorekeeping job.  Thanks to all who traveled to Oceanside for this fun tournament!

Post Away or Tournament . . .

Many years ago at an SCGA meeting, I asked about posting scores as Away or Tournament.  At that time, I was told the weekly tournaments should be posted as Away.  Weekly tournaments are usually held by ladies or men’s clubs affiliated with a golf course.  They have major tournaments such as President’s Cup, Beat the Champ, or whatever else the club deems as major, and those are posted as Tournament.  After describing our monthly tournaments, it was suggested that we should post our scores as Tournament. 
I recently asked the SCGA if this was still the norm and also to clarify this ruling.  Below is their response . . .


The USGA just came out with an expanded definition of a tournament scores for more clarification.  See below.  I would say most of your scores should be posted as “away” with only special events posted as tournaments.

Tournament Score
A "tournament score" (T-Score) is a score made in a competition organized and conducted by the Committee in charge of the competition. The competition must identify a winner(s) based on a stipulated round(s), and must be played under the Rules of Golf.

The Committee in charge of the competition must announce in advance whether the score is to be designated as a Tournament Score. Not all club competitions qualify to be posted as Tournament Scores. For example, club events that are routine events such as daily, weekly, or monthly play days should not be designated as Tournament Scores.

Examples of scores made at the club level that should be designated as Tournament Scores include club championships (stroke play or match play) and member-guest competitions. Examples at the regional and state level include qualifying and championship rounds conducted by authorized golf associations. Also, qualifying and championship rounds conducted for national competitions should be designated as Tournament Scores.

Note: The consequence of designating too many competition rounds as Tournament Scores is that the chart value in the Handicap Reduction Table will be diluted (See Section 10-3 and Decisions 10-3/1 through 10-3/6). The Committee should scrutinize each competition in advance to determine whether it should be designated as a Tournament Score.


New Rainbow rule . . . 2015

After the tournament at Rancho Park in 2015, comments were made about the sand traps not being raked and golf balls were landing in big, deep shoe prints.  Trying to get the ball out of them, especially with soft sand, was brutal.  It was suggested that we introduce a new rule for Rainbow tournaments ONLY .  . . . . If your golf ball lands in a shoe print in the sand trap, you may take it out and place it outside of the shoe print, no closer to the hole, no penalty.  Remember, do not use this rule when playing with other tournaments.

New Rainbow rule . . . 2016

Over the years I’ve heard complaints about some of our members with temper tantrums on the golf course – silent treatment, sarcasm, using f-bombs, throwing clubs and golf balls.  Quite uncomfortable to play with someone having a tantrum because of a bad round of golf, isn’t it?  Being frustrated is understandable, but throwing clubs or golf balls?  C’mon, it is only a game.  Remember, there are others who would love to trade places with you if only they weren’t confined to a wheelchair or a bed. 
So, for every golf club or golf ball thrown intentionally because of a tantrum, you will be assessed $5 each time it is reported by a teammate.  Yea, Rainbow could use the money!!!  Great fundraiser!!

Motto for Rainbow Golf . . .
I recently saw a poster that had the following saying which I have adopted for our group . . .
You have three choices – 1)  Give in; 2) Give up; 3) Give it all you got!!
