Two tournaments per year are played in different cities. The first tournament
is normally held in March, and the second in October, in conjunction with the annual
membership meeting. Additionally, small outings are held in various locations
throughout the year. Members are also encouraged to play golf together whenever
Information regarding upcoming tournaments can be found by selecting a
specific location from the menu bar above.
Our club year runs from
November 1 through October 31.
Each club member who desires to have his handicap calculated by the club is
required to submit at least 10 scores per year. Handicaps are used to
determine scores in all tournaments. The club uses a USGA sanctioned software
system to generated and track handicaps for members.
Members must have at least 10 scores registered with the secretary within a 12-month period
preceding any tournament to be eligible for awards. Scores should be submitted
as rounds of golf are played to avoid a massive crunch just prior to a
ThE linksmen golf club constitution
