Welcome to the Men's League 2020 Season

2020 Men's League

Welcome to the NEW Riverview Golf Club Men's League Website.  We are excited to announce we’ll be using a new online scoring system specifically designed for our league.  Thanks to this unique web based program players can track their individual and team performance, and we now have the ability to display live scoring on the two televisions in the Clubhouse.

The idea behind the new program is simple... the more you play - the better it is for you and your team.  Our goal is to have a minimum of 80 participants this year - 8 teams with 10 players on each team but we'll adjust that based on the sign-up.  Important: The teams are for scoring purposes only.  You are welcome to play with whomever you please on a league day.

 

LEAGUE FORMAT 

 

For the regular season, teams will play head-to-head matches in a round-robin format with the winners of each weekly match earning 10 points, 5 points per team if there is a tie and 0 for teams that lose. But, and this is important – participation is a big part of this format  – teams receive 1 point for each participant who posts a score. 

A team score will be determined by the total of the two (2) lowest gross scores and the four (4) lowest net scores posted by the team.  Players that don't count toward the team total can almost assuredly count on being singled out and suitably labeled on both the TV and this very website.  They will, however, earn a valuable participation point and, of course, they can always step it up and count the following week. 

One of the highlights of the program is the actual real-time scoring.  As the Pro Shop staff enter the individual scores, the standings, individual performances (good/bad), Deuces,  team information and a bunch of other cool stuff will be updated in real-time online.  Guys who can’t make it or those stranded at the office until later in the day can log onto the league website to see how their team is doing.  Another bonus is the program actually maintains a separate league handicap so you know it will be fair for everyone.  Handicaps are automatically updated and applied based solely on your league scores.  That, my friends, is pretty good.

 

We will be running the following events during the Men's League:

  1. Deuce Pot
  2. KP Shoot out- All winners during the season will shoot out on September 23, 2020, for the cumulated pot.
  3. Putt for Cash (pots will carry over)
  4. Hole-in-One Pot (will carry over weekly if not won)
  5. Low Net & Low Gross
  6. Draw Prizes (depending upon funding and donations)

 

To really make this work we need eight (8) enthusiastic if not competent people to act as captains for this season.  Prospective Captains can rest easy - the skills required to head up a team are few – we’d like you to play on a regular basis and, because success in this format relies heavily on participation, you’ll want to rally the "troops".  If you have any questions or if you'd like to help by acting as a team captain please send me an email (gm@golfriverview.com).  This has the potential to be a lot of fun so please, let's spread the good word and get as many people on board this season as possible. 

More information will be posted soon.

Multiple organizations will be sponsoring our League.  Their information will be displayed on the league website, as well as on the slide show that will run all day Wednesdays during Men's League.  Please check out our Sponsor websites (click on their logo on this site to access) to support these organizations that support our league.

 

Play well,
