MEN'S CLUB POLICIES

(revised January 2020)

 Member Eligibility

  1. Completed membership applications and annual dues must be submitted before March 15 to ensure all are properly set up on the Golf Handicap Information Network (GHIN) and Tournament Scoring software as follows:

    • For new members without a handicap, get a GHIN number to quickly establish a handicap,

    • For new members with valid handicaps, transfer GHIN numbers and handicaps, 

    • For returning members, re-establish GHIN activations and valid handicaps for the upcoming season.

  2. If no valid handicap exists, new members must post scores for 3 complete rounds (54 holes using any combination of 9-hole and/or 18-hole rounds) on the GHIN System to establish an official handicap.

  3. All members must complete play in five (5) BFRMC tournament rounds to be eligible to play in the BFRMC Club Championship including the Match Play Championship matches (no exceptions).

 

 Scorecards & Score Posting (See the Handicap Notice page for additional information)

  1. After attempting to make the best score possible on each hole, members are obligated for reporting all Acceptable Scores – this includes both 9-hole and 18-hole scores for:

    • All BFRMC Match Play Championship Tournament matches

    • All other league play on any course 

    • All general play at any course including Blue Fox Run

    • All team play like Member/Guest events including best ball and/or team match play

    • All formal competitions or tournaments

    • All out of state and/or out of country vacation play and "Snowbird" scores

  2. All members must verify their hole-by-hole (gross) scores and sign the BFRMC event scorecards. A golf shop staff member (or club member) will input all player scores using the signed and verified event scorecards and then post these scores via bulk upload to the Golf Handicap Information Network (GHIN.com) using the club’s Tournament Scoring software. The club’s Tournament Scoring software will calculate the Adjusted Gross Score (a maximum of Net Double Bogey per hole) and total net score prior to posting.

  3. It is the responsibility of all members to post Acceptable Scores for All Other Play on the day of play (before midnight). The player is obligated to post Adjusted Gross Scores as soon as practical (using your computed Course Handicap to record a maximum of Net Double Bogey per hole) for these rounds using either the Club Scoring Kiosks at all courses, the GHIN Mobile App on a smartphone, or the GHIN Desktop Dashboard at GHIN.com.

  4. Members are obligated to submit the All Other Play scorecards for review after posting Acceptable Scores to GHIN.com. Please place these scorecards in the “Away Scorecards” box in the Men’s locker room at BFR. These scorecards must be signed and also clearly note the member name(s), course/tees played, and date of play. 

 

Pro Shop Credit

  1. Golf Shop credit is not redeemable for Green Fees.

  2. Golf Shop credit must be redeemed at the course by end of the current season.

 

 Tournament Sign Up Procedure

  1. Sign Ups: Weekly Tee Sheets are normally available Sunday mornings when the Pro Shop opens, 7 days in advance, for all Tournaments the following week. One foursome per person at sign-up.

  2. Cancellations: The person signing up either himself and/or other players, will be held responsible for notifying the Golf Shop of member cancellations. This notification must take place prior to 5:00 PM on the Wednesday prior to the event. This policy also allows us to fill in with players showing up without tee times, and like other club policies are for the good of all members! Failure to do so may require you to pay the course for all green fees not realized, including those for you and all members you signed up. This policy is consistent with that of other leagues playing at Blue Fox Run. Other penalties are at the discretion of the course management. Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
