League Sign-up Policy
League sign-up is on a first-come first serve basis. The first opportunity to sign up for any of our leagues is at our annual Tee-Off Luncheon. Most leagues are limited to 32 players. Greens fees for the entire season are due when you sign-up, and there are no refunds.
Handicap Verification Policy
Players who want to register for any league other than the Beginner League must provide handicap verification upon registration. Players who do not have a handicap but who have entered scores, should provide a printout of their score record and/or score card copies. Players may be asked to have another player with whom they have played vouch for/verify their estimated handicap. The League and Handicap Chairs may be called upon to determine which League a player is eligible for.
Inclement Weather Policy
In the case of inclement weather, call the golf course after 3:30 p.m. (for 9 hole leagues) to inquire whether league play will occur on that day. There will be no rain dates provided in the Saxon, Maple Moore, or Sprain leagues; these leagues have been extended to 12 weeks to account for rain cancellations. Doral Arrowwood provides a rain check for league play cancellations due to weather.
SubList and Guest Policy
If unable to play, you can choose to contact someone from the sublist to cover for you, but EWGA Westchester does not guarantee a sub will be available. Please make sure you notify your foursome if a sub is playing for you. Missed play is not made up.If a substitute player is needed in a league and there are no subs available from the league sublist, a league player may bring a non-member ONCE as a guest substitute for that night. The substitute player is required to pay the greens fee like any other substitute player. If a guest plans on substituting more than once, they are required to join EWGA Westchester and pay the substitute fee.
Code of Conduct and Etiquette
Etiquette covers both courtesy and priority on the course, as well as care of the course. The major etiquette points outlined above are not rules, but are a very important part of the game and should be followed as closely as possible. All league players are expected to conduct themselves appropriately on the golf course. Players are expected to follow all local rules and rules of behavior, including dress code. EWGA reserves the right to terminate a player's participation in the league if that player is found to not be in compliance with the rules. If a player is terminated, her league fee is not refundable.
