Dottie let us know that “When looking at your USGA GHIN stats you will notice a ‘C’ after your posted score which stands for Competition play.  I am told that this does not impact the handicap like the ‘T’ score posting did under the old handicap system.”

L18H Club Play – Winter Rules Definition

Lift, Clean and Place 

When participating in Club play day golf the L18H Women’s Golf Club will use the following definition for Winter Rules:

“When the ball lies in the general area (closely mown), you may mark, lift, clean and place your ball within one grip length of its original spot, no closer to the hole.”

Non-Club play will follow the LWW Local Rule as stated below:

Lift, Clean and Re-Place (Cleaning Ball): 

“When course conditions are such that the Red or Red/White are posted, and a player’s ball lies in the general area, the ball may be lifted cleaned and replaced without penalty. The player must mark the spot before lifting the ball (see Rule 14.1) and the ball must be replaced on its original spot (see Rule 14.2). The ball is in play when it is placed on the spot.”

If you are a woman resident of Lake Wildwood and love to play golf, we would love to meet you. If you are looking to meet some fun gals to play golf with, we would love to have you join us.

We play on Thursday mornings. Contact Sandy Twohig 432-0640 for details on how to join our club.

My next article is due Feb. 12. If you have any club related information or know a club member who did well at an away play day, please be sure to let me know so I can make sure to have it in the next article. Your help makes this article possible! Have fun, I will see you on the course.
