hopes that our tournaments will be a rewarding experience for each of
you. NIMAGA has always run “Golf Tournaments” not “Outings” so don’t be
discouraged if you miss that 18 inch putt you now have to make. If you
have any questions about NIMAGA bring them to your tournament director.
to know the people that volunteer their time to make NIMAGA successful.
If you are a new member be sure to read the monthly NIMAGA notes that
are posted on the web site a week prior to each tournament. -
first “mailing” goes out to all the membership it’s always interesting
to view the list of our members. Many of you are new members who will
be “finding your way” thru the whole process. If you have indicated
that you can obtain your tee times from the web site you will “NOT” be
sent them for any regular tournaments. When you log onto our web site
WWW.NIMAGA.ORG, the tee times for the April 7th
tournament will be there by Monday – April 2nd.
There are a number of rules to follow in NIMAGA Tournaments:
1 - You must
check in with the starter ten minutes prior to your tee time. If you
are late and do not make your tee time you are assessed a two stroke
penalty. You must tee off with the last group of the tournament to
time in a year a member is in a slow group, the penalty is as written
above. The second time in the same year a member is in a slow
group, the penalty is twice what is written above. The third time
in the same year a member is in a slow group, the penalty is twice what
is written above. In addition the board will review his membership. The
only time these criteria will not apply is if the group’s total playing
time is 4 hours or less. Keep up the good pace of play.
If you enter the regular tournaments by
the deadline date the pairings will be mailed to those who do not have
internet access and they will be posted on our web site about one week
prior to the event. About one week after the event you should receive a
gift certificate if you “cashed” in the event. The winning scores
should be on our web site about a week after the event. At the
following months event you should receive the winners plaque.
In closing, all new members are asked to introduce themselves to the tournament directors at their first event. You will receive a NIMAGA bag tag from the director.
Get ready to tee it up!! See everyone at the April event.
