ANOTHER YEAR OF IESGA - 2020 - OUR 47TH YEAR

 COVID-19 NOTICE #2:  The Liberty Lake tournament is being postponed to the second half of the season.  If you have already paid it will be applied to the new date when it is determined, if you haven't paid yet please wait until we have a firm date for the Liberty Lake tournament.  The health and welfare of our members during the COVID-19 outbreak is a top priority.  Larry Kincaid, Pres 2020


IESGA = Inland Empire Senior's Golf Association (50 & over years of age)


Article IV of our Bylaws gives our President, Larry Kincaid, the power to fill any vacancies of Treasurer or Secretary by appointment.  


And luckily, we have found a person who easily has the skills to fulfill the work requirements of the Secretary position - Joan Lawson. She has been appointed to be our permanent 2020 Secretary.


Joan is Jack Lawson's wife and has a huge work background that the IESGA can utilize. She has a degree in Accounting and is well versed with MS Excel and other computer skills.  She worked for several years as a private school bookkeeper, attended Board meetings, etc., prior to her work for many years with WA State Dept of Transportation.  She volunteered for the IESGA Secretary job to give her something to do in her retirement.


The President and the board has worked out a mutually beneficial compensation package for both the IESGA and Joan. 


Things should be transparent to all IESGA members in all regards for 2020 for tournament play.


Here are the entry forms to be used for the 2020 season. A welcome packet (including entry forms for the first two tournaments) will be postal mailed to new 2020 members at the start of April.

Here is another video analyzing whether it is better to leave the flagstick in or take it out  when putting.  Leave the pin in or take it out?

Here is an interesting article about the new rule that allows you to leave the flagstick in when putting.  Leave the pin in or take it out?

****************************************************************************************


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.  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.

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 2020) : 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.
