2021 Leagues, Other Events and Rules

Men's League

Let us know by 1 May if you wish to participate. You do not need to be a member to participate. As last year, we’ll pick the captains for the men’s league teams based on their handicaps and will pick their teammates by lot. Cost is $25 for the season (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 around 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.

Ladies League

The Ladies run their own league and play on Wednesdays, starting around 4pm. You do not need to be a member to join. There probably will be a meeting at the clubhouse in early May a week before the start of the league. Give us a call after we open if you are interested in joining the league. Greens fee for ladies league participants who are not Cobbossee members is $10.

Couple's League

We are holding Thursday afternoons open, circa 4pm start, for any couples who want to participate in couples’ league. We choose a weekly game and you play it against other couples. The best gofers don’t always win our games. Cost $2 per couple.

Generation's Tournament

This tournament, may take place on a Saturday morning in 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-grand-daughter, 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 for members, carts extra. This should be fun. Have not had this in the last couple of years, but will try to hold it this year.

Friday Evening Scramble

We’ll begin these when enough people show up. We start on Fridays, at 5pm, so show up around 4:30 to pay and find out what team you are on. In 2020, because of COVID, we would choose teams by Friday morning from sign up lists. We’ll start 2021 in the same mode and see what transpires as the season progresses. Cost is $5, plus $10 green fee if not a member. A very popular event. We had several Friday scrambles in 2020 where fourteen teams participated.

Par Three Tournament

This will take place probably on a Saturday in June. All holes will be reconfigured to Par Three lengths, with white tee markers (first nine) and blue tees (second nine). Cost for members will be $10, carts extra. Limited to the first 40 golfers who sign up. Refreshments and prizes will be provided.

Member-Guest Tournament

This probably will take place on a Saturday morning in June/July. This year it will be a two person Ryder Cup format, as explained in the above Generations tournament, with lots of food and prizes. Let’s try to keep it to real members and guests. A Cobbossee employee is designated as a member, even though a few of them might not be able to pass the qualification requirements to be a member. Cost is $20 each, carts extra.

Member-Member Tournament

We’ll aim to have this tournament in July or August. Full Ryder Cup format with blind draw, so that A and C players are teamed up and B players and women/very old men are teamed together. Ten dollar entry fee would take care of lunch and prizes.

President's Cup  

This requires Club membership (includes employees) AND a GHIN handicap. It will be a match play format and will start around 1 Aug. Probably will have two divisions for the men, low and high handicappers. One division for the ladies. Cost is $5.

Club Championships

Members only (including employees). No handicaps are used. Low Gross wins. Different divisions for Men and Ladies, Open, Seniors, Super Seniors (and Juniors, if need be). Ladies play 18 holes on 7 August. Men play a total of 36 holes on 14 and 15 August. Cost is $5.

Night Golf Tournaments

We’ll have at least one at the end of July and maybe one at the end of August, if sufficient interest is shown. We’ll provide the equipment and refreshments. You provide the foursome. Scramble format. $25 per person, No driving carts.
