2019 Wednesday Foxboro League
The season will be played mainly as two person teams. The league will be handicapped; your handicaps will be determined by the average of your scores during league play. League handicaps will also factor in WSGA handicaps and past performance in the league. The length of the season will be 20 total weeks from May 1st to September 11th. Tee times likely will be from 3:44-5:36 (may change depending on the number of teams). If there is more demand for early tee times, we may start earlier or vice versa for if there is a greater demand for late tee times. Foxboro will assign the time slots one week in advance. Tee times will be based off of what time frame you select from the application.
The greens fees, carts fees and prize fund have not changed since 2011. Consistent from the 2018 season, all winnings/prizes will be paid in CASH$$$. There will be weekly AND end of the year prizes. Weekly prizes will be available the following week while checking in. (For example, if you win an event on June 20th, the prize money will be paid out on June 27th. Below is a breakdown of the pricing information for the league:
Full and Restricted Members:
$100.00 carts fees($5/week) + $100.00 prize fund($5/week) = $200.00 total
$60.00 discount card + $220.00 greens fees($11/week) + $100 carts fees($5/week) + $100 prize fund ($5/week) = $480.00 total

One of the biggest concerns each season is with handicaps and how they were formed, so early on in the season we will play match and medal to make every stroke count. This will help reduce any attempts to alter handicaps. If available, we will also adjust handicaps based on past performance. Also, please keep in mind the more flexible you are with the times you and your partner can play, the more teams you will be able to compete against.
If you plan on competing, please return the completed form ASAP. We need both players information to be correct and complete. Using your feedback, we tweak leagues each year trying to make it more enjoyable for all players. If you have any suggestions, please forward them before the meeting in March by email to Brook.
