Special Local Rules Note...
If and when we play the ball up (lift, clean & place "through the green"), we are
NOT allowed to improve the ball's lie by moving from rough to fairway. FYI, the USGA
rules currently allow improving your lie in this manner. Our local rule overrides
the USGA rule.
Be sure to check out any other special rules prior to start of any Men's Club Event!
Let the Pro Shop know that you want to play by 5pm Tuesday, May 14. Tee Times will
be assigned, so call Friday or Saturday for your starting time. $5 entry fee, all
of which goes into the prize fund for this event. The specific format will be provided
Sunday before play, but it will be match play: a 2-man Yankee team versus a 2-man
Red Sox team. One point for winning the front and one point for winning the back.
The team with the most points wins. As usual, playing conditions will be posted
on the starter’s shack.

POST YOUR SCORE ON THE SAME DAY AS THE TOURNAMENT
At the Club’s Annual Spring Meeting held on March 3, 2013, the membership voted
to confirm the following rule for Club events: To be eligible for event prizes, all
players must post their (ESC) Score with GHIN on the same day that the event round
was played. The Tournament Chairman has the authority to consider extraordinary circumstances
in overriding this rule. Remember that extraordinary circumstances do not include
“the dog ate my scorecard or I forgot. Of course, if you had read the Tournament
Rules posted on the Tournament Page since 2010, you would already have known this.
Here is Tournament Rule #3:
“3. All tournament and event scores shall be posted on GHIN on the day of the round.
While remote posting from another computer is permitted, it is desirable to post
the scores on the Men's Club computer in the Pro Shop immediately after the round
(while it is still fresh in your mind). If you make a mistake, you should bring it
to the attention of the Tournament Committee by the end of the day. Please remember
to post a “T” for all tournaments noted as such.”
The Updated Tournament Schedule was Revised again!!!
In the “Print Friendly (pdf) version”, the Club Championship Semifinal Round
was incorrectly note as Sunday, July 20. This should have been noted as Saturday,
Get your Hunter Men’s Club application back to us as soon as possible so that we
can minimize any disruption to your GHIN Handicap status.
Start Posting Your Scores!!!
The local (CT) Golf Season begins Monday, April 1, 2013. As of this date, members
are to post all of their rounds in the computer using GHIN Handicap Program. The
Clubs computer is located in the back of the Hunter Pro Shop. Handicap Revisions
will be posted by the CSGA on the 1st and 15th of each month.
Caring for our Golf Course
As we start the new year, please pay attention to the proper care of our beautiful
golf course. Tom, the superintendent will occasionally pass along his concerns on
the proper maintenance of the course. Let’s start with proper golf cart use.
We have had a good Spring and the work accomplished by the Hunter caretakers
last fall has already shown its worth with a relatively “drier” 10th Fairway. However,
we still need to keep the carts out of any wet areas on this and any other wet fairway.
We only ask that you use common sense here...
Also, we need to stop driving our carts up and behind the 12th Tee. Please
stay on the cart path when leaving the 11th Green. Drive around the bush and park
near the stairs. If you are handicapped, please make prior arrangements with the
Pro Shop when you pick up your cart.
Look for the Hunter Golf Course on “Facebook”.

score must be entered into the Club computer as a (T) tournament score. FYI, George
Hunter was the Head Pro at this golf course for many years. His portrait can be
