Inter-Chapter Play – These events are competitions with other chapters (last year we played Westchester). The chapters take turns organizing the events. This year, it is the NYC Chapter’s turn to host Westchester. The Chair for this event will pick the event date, course, and – in consultation with the other chapter – select the play format, e.g., match play. There is a list for our chapter of past competitors but anyone in the chapter can be invited. To socialize after the event, it may be followed by a meal that players who choose to participate can pay for themselves. The Co-Chair can assist the Chair in organizing the event(s).

Looking for a sub, or want to play? Shoot an email to join our sub list
Everyone who wants to play is asked to help schedule weekly tee times at public and semi-private courses on Saturdays, Sundays and Monday holidays excluding days when there is a Chapter outing.
An email blast is sent to members each Monday with information about the week's Open Play schedule. Members wishing to play are to respond directly to the organizer no later than 5 pm on Wednesday.
The organizer will send a confirmation to those who will be playing on Thursday morning. Players are responsible for securing transportation to the course; the emails of the other players will be included in the email confirmation and should be contacted directly for transportation The organizer is not responsible for transportation arrangements.
Cancellation Policy: You MUST call the course 24 hours prior to the tee time unless the organizer has indicated otherwise. If you do not show up for your scheduled tee time and have not called the course to cancel, you will be responsible for any incurred cost.
IMPORTANT: For the mutual enjoyment of the game during open play, members must adhere to the following guidelines to maintain pace of play. It is imperative to keep one stroke behind the group in front of you. Playing too slowly is a breach of etiquette! If you are having a bad day (we all do) consider playing best ball with the others in your foursome. Everyone will have more fun.
Pace of Play Guidelines
1. Play ready golf from tee to green. The player who is ready first, hits first (as long as it's safe to do so).
2. Limit the number of practice swings to one per shot.
3. Pick up after your total strokes on a hole equals double par: 6 strokes on a Par 3, 8 strokes on a Par 4, 10 strokes on a Par 5. But pick up sooner if you are delaying play.
4. Putts, "whiffs" and any penalty strokes count toward the double par maximum.
5. On the green, the player whose ball is closest to the pin should mark her ball and then remove or tend the flag; the first person to hole out should walk to the flag and be ready to replace it after everyone holes out.
6. After you finish the hole, leave the green immediately. Proceed to the next tee box and then record your score from the last hole.
