Men's Captain's Report - Andrew Senior

4/21/2019

To old friends, fellow members, and new additions to The Mad River Golf Club, welcome to the 2019 season. I hope to see you all at the opening Men’s Breakfast Saturday May 4th from 8 to 9 am with golf to follow. This is a great opportunity to get up to date with the tournament schedule, including some new events, changes to the Member Member Tournament, and the changes to the rules of golf. Sign-up sheets will be available for singles and doubles match play.  

New for 2019:

Sign up for events can be done online:  Log in to madriver.ca, select Member Central, select Calendar, and select the event you wish to register for. Or copy and paste the following into your browser: https://www.madriver.ca/EventManagement/EventCalendar.aspx

The match play sign up can be found on the deadline date for sign up, May 20th.

For those who opt not to sign up online, the Pro Shop staff will gladly register you for events upon request.

In response to a need for more competitive stroke play events we will have 4 Medal Play Weekends in 2019 (June, Aug, Sept and Oct).  Sign up in the pro-shop (the day of the event), play with at least one person who is also signed up, count all your strokes, and turn in a completed signed and attested score card. There will be 1 gross score winner, and 3 net score prizes to ensure everyone has a chance to win.

The Member Member tournament will be held June 26 and 27: the format this year has been revised to ensure a unique, challenging and fun experience. Organizers are Paul Sprague and Doug Quanbury and they will give a presentation at the Men’s Breakfast to familiarize you with the event.

There have been numerous changes to the rules of golf which will be in effect for all play in 2019. The 20 most important rule changes can be found on the Member Central page of the Madriver.ca website. Brian will provide an everview and handle Q/A at the Men’s breakfast
