2024 Senior League
Our goal is for you to have some fun and win some prizes.
The league is co-ed with ladies and gentlemen playing together. League entry fee is $60 paid in cash or check
(checks made out to Richard Lund) at the time of sign up. Your entry fee entitles you to play in the league, eligible
for prizes and the season year-end luncheon. All the entry fee proceeds go back to the players.
League starts the 1st Tuesday in May using a shotgun start, as the course is closed for maintenance. Start time is at
9:00 a.m. in May/June with an earlier start at 8:00 a.m. for July/August, depending on when course maintenance is
done. We will operate on the assumption that we will be playing, even if it is raining where you live. A final decision
usually will not come until the morning of play, so call the clubhouse if in doubt. Speed of play is important, and we
should always be aware of playing “Ready Golf.”
Makeup rounds are accepted. We prefer you play on league day but realize things do come up. Makeup rounds may
be made up one week prior to being gone or one week after but must be completed prior to next Tuesday’s league
play. Please understand that last week of play cannot be made up for any reason. Makeup scores do not count
towards the weekly events/prizes. All makeup rounds should be witnessed by another golfer, signed by the golfer
making up the round and the scorecard turned in to the pro shop immediately after the round. Makeup scorecards
should be marked “SENIOR MAKEUP” with the league date being made up”.
Even though this is not the US Open, there are prizes at stake. We will play by The Rules of Golf. Richard Lund and
Mike Walz comprise the “Committee” and have final authority to resolve any issues. The best general advice is, play
the course as you find it, and play your ball as it lies, do not touch it, move it around between the tee – green and count
all strokes. There are no gimmies (All putts must be putted in the cup)! Golf: Individual game of honor.
Out of Bounds: In 2019 there was a new option added for out of bounds shots. The Senior League will observe the
Rules of Golf and the new option available. Out of bounds is marked by white stakes on #1, #5, #6 and #9 fairways.
Out of bounds is also on #1 and #4 where shots are outside the course fence.
Score Cards: Please turn in one score card per foursome with LAST NAME and FIRST INITIAL of each player,
“legibly printed” on them. Unreadable scorecards cannot be entered into weekly scoring and will not be
included. Scorecards are to be agreed to by all players in the foursome. Signed and attested scorecards are final.
Point Parameters and league postings: Each week I will post weekly and season total stats along with weekly event
winners in the pro shop. They will also be posted online at mountainvistagreens.com. Scores will not be posted until
the following Saturday so that makeup’s can be entered for that week’s play. I enter all the scores myself so if there
are discrepancies or questions do not hesitate to ask. You can receive points in a couple of ways. You will receive 20
points for showing up each week, and 2 points for each person you beat and 1 point for each person tied.
Handicaps: For new players, starting handicaps will be based on three 9 – hole rounds turned in prior to the first week’s
play. Players from prior year’s play will start the season with prior season’s ending handicap. The software the league
uses will calculate handicap changes automatically during the season.
Prizes and Points: There are weekly events which are both individual and team. At the end of the year, the weekly
event winners will be announced. The top two individual finishers in each division will be recognized based on point
accumulation throughout the season. Gift certificates will be presented to the winners. Any questions, please contact
Richard Lund. (970) 419-0397 – mountaintriker@gmail.com Good luck and see you on the links.
