League Play Update   4/30/20

We hope that you are all safe and well during this difficult time.

Not surprisingly, our league play has been delayed by the public health crisis and by the New York State on Pause restrictions that are in place through May 15th, at the earliest. Though many golf courses have reopened for individual play, our organization will not be promoting any organized group activity while the Pause is in effect for Long Island. Given the current timeline, we are hoping to commence league play during the week of June 1st, subject to change based on government guidance.

Once we can resume league play, we will have modified procedures to comply with ongoing guidelines to prevent further spread of the virus. Our league committee volunteers will be working with personnel at the various courses to address many issues, including on course conduct in support of distancing and hygiene, longer tee time intervals, availability of carts, payment procedures, etc. We will keep you apprised of updates and proposed changes as soon as practical. Your patience and flexibility will be greatly appreciated as we work through the challenges ahead.

COVID-19 Updates

We are a group of players that look forward to a golf season filled with fun, friendships and celebrations. We love the outdoors and enjoy the challenges of good competition.  And despite the unrest of our present state of affairs due to COVID-19, we still look forward to our 2020 Season in hopes that we can soon be together on and off the course.

If you’ve registered for leagues on our webpage, you may have already received Welcome Letters from your respective T-Time Captains. The emails that I have seen reflect the caring friendships that we are fortunate to have. The message from one and all is to be safe and stay healthy……along with the wish that we will all see each other soon.

Your Board has been busy working on the 2020 Calendar however revisions have already been necessary.

  • A T-off event and Workshop that was scheduled for April required Cancellation.
  • League start date has been delayed. Our League Chair, Deborah Lloyd Priest, is in contact with the various courses and will advise all updates.
  • In the unlikely case that League Play will be cancelled for the year, all those registrants that have paid will receive a refund.

Please be sure to check the website for updates. 

In the meantime, I recommend that you familiarize yourselves with the new Handicap System that became effective this year. Please make sure you take special note of:

Maximum Allowed Score for Posting
Starting in 2020, the maximum score you can post on any hole is a NET DOUBLE BOGEY. In other words, the maximum score for each hole is Double Bogey + any Handicap Strokes applied on that hole based on your Course Handicap. For further info, please go here and here or refer to the detailed information on this website EDUCATION tab.

Our top priority remains the health and safety of our members and we appreciate your patience and support during the uncertainty surrounding scheduling.  A special thanks goes out to our Board:

  • Deborah Lloyd Priest – for coordinating and monitoring everything pertaining to Leagues
  • Joyce Murray – for doing the same for all special events, outings and workshops
  • Maureen Mahoney – for watching over everything to do with membership and our members
  • Dawn Borgia – for ensuring that all our information, updates and news alerts are posted and communicated to all of our members.
  • ….and last but not least – Karen Dowd – for watching over all of our finances.

Please take good care of yourselves and be well,
