Help with Mark Geddes’ expenses at the PGA Championship

May 12th, 2021 posted by Joe Preimesberger

The PGA of America is cheap when it comes to helping its members cover the costs for making the Championship.  There is a GoFundMe to pass the hat for Mark.  If you’d like to help with his expenses with at least $20 or whatever you may, here is the link. Thanks for supporting the club and the pro shop. gf.me/u/zsxus3

April 11th, 2021 posted by Joe Preimesberger

First Flight: Robert Castro and Bill Subang won with Bob Swisher and Mark Daly in 2nd place, Bill Wilson and Randy Dorris, Gary Miles and Jim Barry, Peter Lavallee and Dick Braun, Brian Cincotta and Ruben Huerta all tying for 3rd place. 

Second Flight:  Barry and Gerry won with Jack Renshaw and Brian Walsh in 2nd place with Bob Emerson and Dick Wank tying Bob Podoloff and Michael Flaherty for 3rd place .

As a reminder, Golf Genius will be required with tournaments starting in January and scoring must be done on the course, not afterward. Members must verify the scores from a hard card with the inputted Golf Genius scores before they leave the course. Any errors, changes or missing scores after leaving the course will cause disqualification.

Thanks for the members who participated. It is vital we follow all of the procedures in order to keep our tournaments. Members must use masks in and around the Pro Shop and Clubhouse, and maintain social distancing on the course. The city and county are evaluating all golf courses in order to ensure compliance. And as always, remember, keep up with the group in front of your group. The pace of play could have been better on Sunday. Take care and stay safe.

Cancellations and No-shows

March 18th, 2021 posted by palbitz

The tournament manual (under the references menu item) says this about cancellations and no-shows:

  1. Cancellations: The Tournament Chairman is to be notified of cancellations no later than 4:00 p.m, three days before the start of a tournament (if a tournament starts on Saturday, members must advise the Chairman by 4:00 p.m. Wednesday night). Refunds of tournament fees will be made only to those who cancel before the deadline, unless the Tournament Chairman determines there were extenuating circumstances.
  2. “No Shows”: Players who do not show up for their scheduled tee time will not be allowed to enter tournaments for the next two months, unless the Tournament Chairman determines there were extenuating circumstances.

Here’s what we are doing: Cancellations need to happen as described above (4pm three days before tournament) to get a cash refund. What has changed since the manual was written is that we put money on your restaurant card. So, sometime after 4pm three days before the tournament, money is put on your card. Since money was added to your card, there will not be any cash refunds. For those players that come off the waiting list after money has been added to restaurant cards, they will not have to pay the tournament fee since they will not get any money added to their restaurant card.

As for no shows, we have not been enforcing the penalty of not being allowed to enter tournaments for the next two months. Starting with the April Satellite, we will enforce the penalty. If you do not cancel from a tournament and you do not show up to play, you have taken away the opportunity for someone on the waiting list to play and reduced the course’s revenue.

Signup Changes

March 6th, 2021 posted by palbitz

The good news is that you don’t have to get up at 5am to sign up. The signup process was never meant to be a race for who signs up first.

The signup process has been changed to more closely match the tournament manual (under the references menu item, if you want to read it). Here’s the relevant part from the manual:

  1. CMGC Board members, significant sponsors, significant consultants and their foursomes, and individual tournament helpers (not their foursomes), will have priority for entry into a tournament over all other applicants.
  2. Assignment of all other starting times will be based upon a blind draw conducted by the Tournament Chairman.
  3. In the event tournaments have more applicants than there are starting times, the Tournament Chairman will post a standby list for those not selected in accordance with either paragraph (1) or (2) above. For 2-Day tournaments only, members who apply for a tournament, prior to the closing of the application period, but remain on the standby list shall be given priority over all others in the blind draw in the next scheduled 2-Day tournament if they apply.

Here’s the new signup process:

  1. You have from 5am to noon of the signup day to sign up. When you sign up during this period does not increase or decrease your chances of getting in the tournament.
  2. Board members (and their foursome) and waiting list members (and their foursome) from the last 2 day tournament will pay immediately, as is done in the current signup process. They are in the tournament.
  3. Everyone else will sign up, but not pay (yet).
  4. After signup completes, those that did not pay are part of a blind draw. Based on the blind draw order, some will be given a tee time and some will be put on the waiting list. Those given a tee time will then pay their tournament fee. (There will be a link to pay on the tee time page next to your name or the first person in your group’s name.)
  5. As cancellations happen, the next waiting list person will be given a tee time and there will be a link next to their name to pay.
  6. On the waiting list, you are a single, not part of your signup group. When you get a tee time, you will pay for yourself, not for your whole signup group.
  7. While the Torrey Men’s Club will try to re-assemble groups after players come off the waiting list, we are not planning to do that, at least initially.

Use the website home page “Tournament Director” link to email the current director to cancel.

For this first tournament of the new signup process, there is no waiting list from the “last 2-day tournament.”

We’ll adjust this process over time, if necessary.

Be patient if there are problems. As you know, new releases of software are seldom perfect.
