Welcome to The Men's Club at Foothills website. You will find tournament information, registration, rules and news.

The 2022 Men’s Club Membership Applications are now available. You’re free to return it at any time, but we suggest you wait and give it to yourself as a Christmas gift. The reason for this is simple; we suggest you await the next report following our December meeting.
At our first meeting we began the planning for the 2022 Tournament Season. We established a schedule and calendar in coordination with the Meadow’s Men’s Club. Most of the age-old tournaments assumed their normal slots. However, the Board agreed to look at some five of
our recent tournaments to see if replacements can be found to enhance and vary the upcoming season’s play.
In addition, there are suggestions, from not only the USGA but other clubs in the area, that we look at optional enhancements to the handicap system, specifically GHIN, so as to create more equitable play and improve the odds for all members in each fight to cash in over time. We don’t know where this will take us, but we expect that more information as to these options will be announced after the December meeting. We also hope to have a way the membership
can weigh-in thereafter to make sure there is the maximum buy-in, if any changes are recommended to be made.
As you all know, the 2022 season will be significant in that we will not have the old clubhouse. Thank God. This will, however, require some flexibility on our part. We plan on providing more prospective logistical information either after the December meeting or soon thereafter. Some of the timing of this report is dependent upon decisions to be made by the Pro Staff and the Recreation Board and Staff.
We look forward to an eventful season and only hope you will join us when the time is right.

Memo from Tom Woodard about Book Money
The purpose of this memo is to remind all of the Golf Clubs that play the Foothills Park & Recreation Districts golf courses of the upcoming deadline for the expenditure of book money.
Club book money has to be spent by Monday, November 29th, 2021. Closing the books this early allows the District time to close their books for the year.
Book Money Policy:
Club and league members must spend all of the book money on their respective ledgers by November 29th of the same calendar year. In addition, any special orders must be placed with the merchandise coordinator by the same November 29th deadline. Special orders will not be taken after the November 29th deadline, and book money can only be used for merchandise. As it relates to any credits that remain on the books after the November 29th deadline; all clubs have until Monday, December 6th to have a representative physically come in and spend the remaining balance of each account. After the December 6th deadline the merchandise coordinator will spend the remaining balance on selected merchandise and deliver the merchandise to a club representative.
We’ve received questions from club members concerning our ability to match advertised prices from other retail and on-line vendors. We sell large ticket items at M.A.P. prices (minimum advertised price). Unfortunately we cannot match the prices of some discount vendors.
In closing, I would like to thank each of the clubs for your continued patronage of the District’s golf courses.
This is also a reminder for members who won book money in the Member/Guest Tournament - your guests can pick up their gift certificate at the Pro Shop. These certificates also expire on November 29th.
See You Next Year!
