Women's Golf League






Tuesday,  April 13th through Tuesday, August 31st



9 holes



Starting @ 5:30 PM



White Tees (0.0-7.6 Handicap Index)

Green Tees (7.7-36.0 Handicap Index)

* Players may play from their primary tee if different from the tee/index breakdown.  In order to participate from a different tee player’s scoring history must have 80% or more scores from the tee they wish to play.




Please be advised of the following Pace of Play program:


A group found to be the equivalent of two full shots behind the group in front of them, shall be approached by a course marshall and informed that their group is out of position and that the group is now "On The Clock". This will serve as the only warning for each competitor prior to being penalized for subsequent slow play. Following this official warning, all players in a group will be timed. If, on any shot, from the time it is clearly his/her turn to play, a player takes more than forty five (45) seconds to play his/her shot; he/she will be penalized as follows:

  • First Offense: 1 stroke penalty
  • Second Offense: 2 stroke penalty
  • Third Offense: Disqualification from the tournament

After a group returns into position, the process will end




All members of the Gillette Ridge Women’s Golf League must abide by the following rules:

  1. All members must play ready golf. If you are ready to play, play your shot. If you are not ready, have someone else go.
  2. Play the ball where it lies, unless stated otherwise by the Rules of Golf
  3. Play the ball down, unless the Golf Professional determines otherwise (i.e. lift, clean and place for wet conditions)
  4. Maximum score for every hole is Net Double Bogey, per World Handicap System. Net Double Bogey is calculated as: Par of the hole + 2 strokes + Any handicap strokes received.
    1. Ex: Hole 9 has the handicap of 1 (the hardest hole on the course). A golfer has a handicap index of 14. The max score of net double bogey would be 4 + 2 + 1 handicap stroke received= 7. This is his/her max score on this hole.
  5. All Out of Bounds are marked by white stakes. The golfer has the following options:
    1. Take Stroke and Distance relief- go back to the original spot where the ball was last played and take a one-stroke penalty (Rule 18.2), or
    2. Take relief under Model Local Rule E-5 and receive a two-stroke penalty
      1. Ball reference point- You may drop at the point where the original ball is estimated to have last crossed the edge of the course boundary to go out of bounds
      2. Fairway Reference Point- The point of fairway of the hole being played that is nearest to the ball reference point but is not nearer the hole than the ball reference point.
  6. Penalty Areas are marked by red or yellow stakes and paint. 
    1. In Yellow Penalty Areas, the golfer may
      1. Play the ball as it lies without penalty (Rule 17.1b)
      2. Take stroke-and-distance relief by playing the original ball or another ball from a relief area based on where the previous stroke was made, and add one penalty stroke (Rule 17.1d(1)), or
      3. Drop the original ball or another ball in a relief area that is based on a reference line going straight back from the hole through the estimated point where the original ball last crossed the edge of the penalty area, and add one penalty stroke (Rule 17.1d(2)), or
      4. Take relief under Model Local Rule E-1.1.The player may drop the original ball or another ball in the dropping zone, which are marked with a sign and/or white paint near the greens on Holes 7, 14, and 16, and add one penalty stroke.
    2. In Red Penalty Areas, the golfer may,
      1. Use the one above three options for yellow penalty areas, excluding MLR E-1.1, or
      2. Take lateral relief. The reference point for taking this relief is the estimated point where the original ball last crossed the edge of the red penalty area. The relief area is two club-lengths from the reference point, is not nearer to the hole than the reference point and may be in any area of the course, except the same penalty area, and add one penalty stroke (Rule 17.1d(3)).
