The Rotary Golf League season is winding down. Only one more official outing scheduled – Glen Echo, Tuesday, October 10. More on that in a separate announcement.
Now we are focused on the coveted annual winners of the Rotary Cups. We have three traveling engraved trophy cups, one for each of:
- Championship Flight
- A Flight
- B Flight
- Most Improved Player
The seasonal flight points before the last outing are:
For all practical purposes, Steve LaFara is the winner of the Championship Flight. However for A and B Flights, the outcome is not so certain.
For A Flight, Matt Weiss has a significant lead over Dave Wicks, but a flight win plus standing in the CTP at Glen Echo could mean a win for Wicks. Weiss will have to defend. Ken Schuman or others could be spoilers for Wicks if they take the flight win at Glen Echo.
For B Flight, we have an anyone can win situation. Tom Keeline, James Webster, Bob Garagiola, and Bob Bauer all could win with an event flight win and/or CTP points.
Most improved player is also up for grabs. One of several players could win this depending on the outcome at Glen Echo.
The only way to know for sure is to signup and play. We will have the flight leaders play in the same tee group to maximize the competitive spirit.
Great fun. And a wonderful course and club for the finish.
For those with a need to know
The Flight winners will have accumulated the most points in the season for their flight. Points are won as follows:
1st Place 30 points
2nd Place 25 Points
3 rd Place 20 Points
Depending on the event attendance, 2 (up to 20 players), 3 flights (21 or more players). Event flights are based on an equal number of players in each flight by handicap index.
We award additional skill prize points for Close-To-Pin on a designated hole. Three positions are awarded based on distance. These are not flight based. Only one CTP hole and 3 positions are awarded for an event.0
Closest 15 points
2nd 10 points
3rd 5 points
We break the membership into 3 season long flights based on yearly starting handicaps. The member who accumulates the most points in each seasonal flight is the winner.
