A scheduling conflict came up at Liberty Lake CC for our scheduled

tournament 5/22. We have solved the problem by switching the dates

of The Links tournament and the Liberty Lake Tournament. 


So now, We are playing The Links on May 22 and Liberty Lake on June 19.


If you had already printed out the Tournament Calendar OR the Tournament

Entry Forms before 02/25, you need to go back and print them again. The 

changes for these two tournaments have now been made on this website.

Second Addendum to the minutes of the October 11, 2018 General Meeting 

On February 11, 2019, through email correspondence, board members and officers again discussed the option of moving C flight players to the forward tees. The consensus was to table the move for the entire 2019 season and discuss it at the Board Meeting in October. Meanwhile board members and officers will contact as many C flight players as possible during the tournaments this year and get their opinion. Information will be included in the mass mailing sent out in March 2019.

Unfortunately, the news that we put out here can't 

all be good news. Former IESGA player for many years, 

Larry Caruso, passed away on October 15th at the age 

of 72.  We have a link to his obituary further down the 

page.

Members, about 80% of you have requested mid-AM tee times. Very nice, but we are unable to handle everyone in that sort of 2-3 hour "window". We would like to, but obviously can't. So, some of you will find yourself with a tee time earlier or later in the day. Play well!


Also,  please send your entries in on time.  Les and I have to deal with several variables when we do the pairings:  time, partner requests, carpools, players who travel a long distance, and slow players.  If you are late, you will probably not get your choices.

Long time IESGA member, Larry Caruso, passed away October 15, 2018

I am sure many of us had the pleasure of playing a round or two with Larry in an IESGA tournament. He mostly played with Peter Carpanzano as a partner. He 

was a pretty darn good player, and an excellent joke teller. Rest in Peace, Larry.

Here is Larry's obituary

Competitive Tournament Golf

  • Enter one tournament, or all of them, your choice.
  • For each tournament, depending upon your handicap, you'll be placed in 1 of 4 flights. IESGA keeps their own internal handicap for you - based on your best 3 scores out of the last 5 IESGA tournaments. 
  • New for tournament play in 2018 (and continued for 2019) : If you are placed in the 4th flight (typically around 22 to 24 handicap), you will be playing from a set of "forward" tees, making it a slightly easier game for you to play.
  • If you are a new member and you have a GHIN handicap, you can enter IESGA with that handicap.
  • Your basic tournament entry fee enters you into net score competition and KP competition in your flight.
  • In addition, you can enter any of four $5 pots (for your flight); Honey Pot (Low Gross), Gross Skins, Net Skins and Deuce Pot.
