As last year, we'll pick the captains for the men's league teams based on their handicaps and they will pick their teammates. Cost is $25 and a $10 greens fee each match if not a Cobbossee member. Substitutes are needed and appreciated. They don't pay the $25 cost. The season will start mid May and end before Labor Day. Match play will take place on Tuesday afternoons. We should have two team scrambles during the season, with refreshments provided by the Course.

Greens fee for ladies league participants who are not Cobbossee members is $10.

Generation's Tournament

This is a new tournament, which will probably take place on a Saturday morning in late May or June. It will be a two generation, same family tournament, based on a Ryder Cup format. The teams must have two members of the same family but from different generations; e.g. father-son, grandmother-granddaughter, uncle-niece, etc. Ryder Cup format will have 6 holes scramble, 6 holes best ball, and 6 holes alternate shot. At least one of each team must be a member. We'll have more information in May. Refreshments and prizes will be provided. Cost will be $20 per person. This should be fun.
