Welcome to The Men's Club at Foothills website. You will find tournament information, registration, rules and news.
For the President’s Cup tournament this weekend, we are not able to have the shoot-out due to the COVID19 restrictions. However, we will have closest to the pin on all par threes, closest 2nd shot on #1 and #10, and a contest for fewest putts for each round. Also there will be a voluntary horserace of the current and past presidents, along with voluntary flighted net skins and gross over the field skins. In order to participate in the voluntary horserace and skins, YOU MUST print out the form and fill it in, placing it and CASH ONLY into an envelope which you will place upstairs in the drop box to the safe before you tee off. No skins entries or horse race bets will be accepted after you tee off. If you are not able to print the form, we will have some at the course, but you will need to come prepared with exact change and an envelope. Tee times and flights for the President’s Cup are now posted. Also on the website is the sheet you will need to bet on the horse race and participate in skins.
One bit of good news, the holes have been changed. They are now at
normal depth, right side up. There is foam in the cup to prevent the ball from falling down as far, but putting should be close enough to normal that we can dispense with trying to determine if the ball should have gone in. For this tournament, if you make it, you make it, if not, putt again. We will continue to improve lies in the bunkers until we are allowed rakes. Unfortunately, the pro shop has not been able to open. Therefore, each of you will need to call this week, before Saturday, preferably in the afternoon and pay for your golf (and cart if you wish one). The weather looks like it will be great. One final note, please be mindful of the social distancing rules. It is critical that we follow the guidelines if we want to continue to hold our events. Feel free to have a beer after the round, but be aware of how close you stand and where
We are moving the Member-Member to June 27 and 28. We will hold the 2-in-1 on June 13 and 14. We are doing this in hopes that by the end of June, restrictions will be loose enough to allow us to hold the Calcutta. As of right now, we do not see any way we could hold it, so by moving the date we are giving ourselves a better chance of being able to have it.
Match Play pairings for the 1st round in Individual handicap, Senior handicap, Partner handicap and Master Senior handicap are now posted. Also the Scratch and Senior Scratch Match Play tournaments are still open for entry thru June 30. Remember to post your scores hole by hole when you enter them on the GHIN website. This allows us to go back and look at them in case there is a dispute or concern. The scratch brackets will be out later, there is still time to sign up for those if you wish.
The 2020 golf season, for Colorado, was opened March 15th.
GHIN’s website, GHIN.com, is very useful. You can post scores from any computer with an internet connection. GHIN has a free app for your smart phone and is very easy to use.
Starting January 1, 2020 the USGA and five other world organizations will combine to become the WHS (World Handicap System). Several of the board members will be going to different seminars this off season and will provide information as it becomes available. If you are interested in learning more about this new handicapping system, visit Colorado Golf Association web site, ColoradoGolf.org. Look under membership and click on World Handicap System.
