This year, we will hold three practices a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Each night, we will leave around 5:15 and arrive at our practice facility, McGolf in Dedham, around 6. The club has purchased punch cards for buckets of balls so you will not have to purchase your own balls. There will be one, 12 passenger van to bring us to each practice, depending on participation.
We have three tournaments scheduled for the fall season. September 26 and 27, is the NCCGA Northern New England Tournament 1 at The Oaks Golf Links in Somersworth, New Hampshire. Tournament 2 is at The Crumpin-Fox Club in Bernardston, MA on October 24 and 25. The two NCCGA tournaments will include clubs from Maine, New Hampshire, UMASS Amherst, MIT, and others. The Beanpot tournament is currently in the process of being scheduled.
Tournament Player Selection Protocol:
At practices, the officers and coach Steven Tasho will decide who will play in the tournament that weekend. It will be based on participation and ability. If you come to practice regularly and show that you have an understanding of the game, than we will do our best to choose you for one of the tournaments. We have a number of really good players on the team and our goal is to be as competitive as possible in these tournaments. If you are more of a recreational player, that is completely fine as well.
Each player will be asked to pay $100 in dues to cover practice balls, transportation and coaching. If you are selected to play in a tournament, the entry fee will be an additional $50 per tournament.
