 Big/Little Sister Guidelines

  1. Once a prospective new Lincster member has submitted the application, a Big Sister will be identified.

  2. The role of the Big Sister from this point forward will be to help the new Lincster's member (Little Sister) to get to know the Lassie's ways, review rules of golf, and assist the new Lincster's member to become an integral part of the Lincster's play days, meetings, and tournaments.

  3. The Big Sister will also provide assistance with posting golf scores.

  4. The Big Sister will look for opportunities to provide encouragement with the game of golf and find times other than the regular Lassie's play days to play golf or socialize together.

Approved at the May 5, 2010 Lincster's Board Meeting.


ASSIGNED TEE TIMES: all teams tee off on the same hole. SHOTGUN (blast-offs): foursomes are stationed on each of the holes being used, ready to start at the same time. Longer holes may accommodate more than one foursome. These are designated as A and B with A teeing
off before B.

On Wednesday play days, you must post your own PWGA and WNHGA scores. Post every game you play, home and away! Post 18 holes on WNHGA as two nines. It is your responsibility to post. You can post from home ( or at the Pro Shop. Know slope and course rating.   Audits may be performed to check you are posting accurately.


Keep duplicate scorecards to be verified with each other for the score of individual holes, putts and the accuracy of the card.
Turn in two cards for each foursome, containing:
1.    Last name, first name
2.    Gross scores totaled; handicap
3.    Putts totaled for each hole, ONLY if you paid
On the second scorecard, also include the following:
4.    Numbers 1,2 and 3 (above)

5.    Circle any pars, birdies and chip-ins; write "chip-ins" and hole number where appropriate
Both scorecards must be attested (signed) by all four players and turned in immediately to the Pro Shop.

Since we usually play stroke play on Wednesday tournaments, count all your strokes! A whiff is a stroke. Mulligans are not allowed. you must hole out; no gimmies!


PUTTS GAME (optional)
Sign up before play in the Pro Shop; slip $1 in the envelope and sign your initials. The three golfers with the fewest putts will win the "pot". Usually played every week on Wednesday  playday.


The Hole-in-One insurance Program is covered as part of your annual Lincster dues. If you get a hole-in-one on a Lincster play day, it is customary to buy everyone a drink in the Sports Bar. The Hole-in-One Insurance will cover the cost, but coverage is limited to the number of current Lincster's Members x $1.

To keep the play moving along, a group may agree to play "out of order" or ready golf. If you are ready to play and others are not,
hit up or putt out to save time if it is safe.

Lincster's who have hit 10 strokes for more than two holes should pick up and start over at the next hole. You will enter your maximum score for that hole, which is a 10 for the majority of Lincster's. Circle your "adjusted" score to indicate a "pick up score" to the Sweeps Committee. You will not be eligible for sweeps that week, but you can still post your score; THIS WILL KEEP YOUR FOURSOME FROM FALLING BEHIND.

Always, always mark your balls! If you hit the wrong ball it is a two-stroke penalty. Identify your ball markings to your partners before playing. Also, identify your clubs; use address-type labels on clubs with name, address and telephone number OR name, Lincoln Hills Golf Club, 916-543-9200.

The full handicap is deducted from the gross score and players with the lowest net score win. The winners will be posted online.
