March 20th, 2021 posted by Joe Preimesberger

 

First Flight: Dick and Peter won with Glenn Miller and Franc Happ in 2nd and Steve Hernandez and Tim Justice in 3rd place. 

 

Second Flight:  Mark Andrews and Kirk Ferris came in 1st place with Bob Emerson and Dick Wank tying John DeProspo and Michael Patton for 2nd place.

 

Congratulations to Dante Togliatti with a hole-in-one on #5. He’s buying if you see him.

 

As a reminder, Golf Genius will be required with tournaments starting in January and scoring must be done on the course, not afterward. Members must verify the scores from a hard card with the inputted Golf Genius scores before they leave the course. Any errors, changes or missing scores after leaving the course will cause disqualification.

 

Thanks for the members who participated. It is vital we follow all of the procedures in order to keep our tournaments. Members must use masks in and around the Pro Shop and Clubhouse, and maintain social distancing on the course. The city and county are evaluating all golf courses in order to ensure compliance. And as always, remember, keep up with the group in front of your group. The pace of play could have been better. Take care and stay safe.

 


Cancellations and No-shows

March 18th, 2021 posted by palbitz

 

The tournament manual (under the references menu item) says this about cancellations and no-shows:

  1. Cancellations: The Tournament Chairman is to be notified of cancellations no later than 4:00 p.m, three days before the start of a tournament (if a tournament starts on Saturday, members must advise the Chairman by 4:00 p.m. Wednesday night). Refunds of tournament fees will be made only to those who cancel before the deadline, unless the Tournament Chairman determines there were extenuating circumstances.
  2. “No Shows”: Players who do not show up for their scheduled tee time will not be allowed to enter tournaments for the next two months, unless the Tournament Chairman determines there were extenuating circumstances.

 

Here’s what we are doing: Cancellations need to happen as described above (4pm three days before tournament) to get a cash refund. What has changed since the manual was written is that we put money on your restaurant card. So, sometime after 4pm three days before the tournament, money is put on your card. Since money was added to your card, there will not be any cash refunds. For those players that come off the waiting list after money has been added to restaurant cards, they will not have to pay the tournament fee since they will not get any money added to their restaurant card.

 

As for no shows, we have not been enforcing the penalty of not being allowed to enter tournaments for the next two months. Starting with the April Satellite, we will enforce the penalty. If you do not cancel from a tournament and you do not show up to play, you have taken away the opportunity for someone on the waiting list to play and reduced the course’s revenue.

 


Signup Changes

March 6th, 2021 posted by palbitz

 

The good news is that you don’t have to get up at 5am to sign up. The signup process was never meant to be a race for who signs up first.

The signup process has been changed to more closely match the tournament manual (under the references menu item, if you want to read it).

 

Here’s the relevant part from the manual:

  1. CMGC Board members, significant sponsors, significant consultants and their foursomes, and individual tournament helpers (not their foursomes), will have priority for entry into a tournament over all other applicants.
  2. Assignment of all other starting times will be based upon a blind draw conducted by the Tournament Chairman.
  3. In the event tournaments have more applicants than there are starting times, the Tournament Chairman will post a standby list for those not selected in accordance with either paragraph (1) or (2) above. For 2-Day tournaments only, members who apply for a tournament, prior to the closing of the application period, but remain on the standby list shall be given priority over all others in the blind draw in the next scheduled 2-Day tournament if they apply.

 

Here’s the new signup process:

  1. You have from 5am to noon of the signup day to sign up. When you sign up during this period does not increase or decrease your chances of getting in the tournament.
  2. Board members (and their foursome) and waiting list members (and their foursome) from the last 2 day tournament will pay immediately, as is done in the current signup process. They are in the tournament.
  3. Everyone else will sign up, but not pay (yet).
  4. After signup completes, those that did not pay are part of a blind draw. Based on the blind draw order, some will be given a tee time and some will be put on the waiting list. Those given a tee time will then pay their tournament fee. (There will be a link to pay on the tee time page next to your name or the first person in your group’s name.)
  5. As cancellations happen, the next waiting list person will be given a tee time and there will be a link next to their name to pay.
  6. On the waiting list, you are a single, not part of your signup group. When you get a tee time, you will pay for yourself, not for your whole signup group.
  7. While the Torrey Men’s Club will try to re-assemble groups after players come off the waiting list, we are not planning to do that, at least initially.

 

Use the website home page “Tournament Director” link to email the current director to cancel.

For this first tournament of the new signup process, there is no waiting list from the “last 2-day tournament.”

We’ll adjust this process over time, if necessary.

Be patient if there are problems. As you know, new releases of software are seldom perfect.

 


Weekend Tournament Tee Times

February 11th, 2021 posted by Joe Preimesberger

 

Why is it so hard to get tee times for the tournaments? COVID. The City requires us to leave the :52 time open each hour because of the COVID. That is 6 tee times, 24 spots. That is almost the exact number that get shut out of the tournaments. What do I do if I get shut out? Send an email the Tournament Chair asking to be put on the waitlist – you will be  listed in the order received. If you don’t get in, you will get priority  for the next tournament. Note- you will no longer be allowed to pick your replacement if someone in your group drops out- the replacement will be the person next up on the waitlist. Why did I get bumped after I signed up? Because either we overestimated the times we would have available, or we had to bump people in order to give times to players waitlisted or bumped in the prior tournament.  If you get bumped and don’t get in you will go to the head of the waitlist and get priority for the next tournament. Remember to remind us when signing up for the next tournament. We are open to hear ideas on making things better. We never had these tee time availability issues before COVID. We assume we will get our times back from the City in the not to distant future and we will be back to the situation that everyone who wants to play will get a time!

President’s Cup Sign Up

January 14th, 2021 posted by Joe Preimesberger

 

The President’s Cup being played February 13th and 14th sign up will be available online on Monday, January 18 at 5a. In addition, there will be no credits added to your F&B card for the foreseeable future, instead the additional funds will be added to the total chits and will be allocated to 60% of the field instead of the past 40%.


Weekend Tournament Sign Up Process

January 14th, 2021 posted by Joe Preimesberger

Because of the changes due to Covid-19, signing up does not guarantee that you are in the tournament. We try to match the number of signups with the available tee times. When the tee times are assigned and we are over-subscribed, a random draw decides which players do not get a tee time. Those players are refunded their signup fee.

ALTERNATIVE TO STROKE AND DISTANCE FOR A LOST BALL OR A BALL OUT OF BOUNDS.

November 26th, 2020 posted by Joe Preimesberger

 

The CMGC has adopted the USGA’s Modal Local Rule that deals with the situation where you have a ball that may be lost or out of bounds and you have reached the point on the course where the ball may be lost or out of bounds and you did not play a provisional ball. This can easily happen on the right side of our hole number 13. Under the rules if you can’t find the ball or you or you do find it but it is out of bounds, you are required to go back to the tee under a penalty of one stroke and put another ball into play hitting your third stroke. Under the USGA’s Local Modal Rule E-5 which the CMGC has adopted allows the player to estimate the place where the ball is lost or estimate the spot where the ball last crossed the edge of the course boundary. The rule allows the player with a two stroke penalty to put another ball into play on the fairway of that hole by dropping a ball within two club lengths from the edge of the fairway no closer to the hole than the estimated spot where the ball was lost or went out of bounds. The player would then be hitting his fourth shot. The original ball is no longer in play and must not be played. 

 

The club’s local rules can be found on our web site by clicking Preferences and then Local Rules. The USGA Official Guide to the Rules of Golf on page 468 and following sets forth the rule and has excellent diagrams to show the full extent of how the rule can be applied.
