The league officers have decided to play the 2016 season only at Broken Tee. We will not play at CommonGround in 2016. In addition it was decided that all men would tee off from the Gold tee box. If there is an adverse impact on pace of play additional changes will be made.

South Platte River Run Park Construction Project
There is ongoing construction for a river access area from just south of the 6th green down into the river. The project doesn't affect the course itself in any way. However, a large portion of the parking lot has been conscripted for construction access and equipment/materials storage. There is a poster board with a nice schematic of the finshed project in the Broken Tee Club House. See more at www.southplatteriverrun.com

Bob Spada, Director of Golf at Broken Tee, has asked that we tee off on the first tee at our scheduled tee times versus as soon as the previous group is out of range. Bob says he thinks that will alleviate potential "jams" on some of the holes, like #5. This new procedure does not change the course's and our club's admonition to "keep up with the group in front". Please continue to do that to the best of your ability. Thanks.

The League Bylaws have been updated

MARS Golf has implemented a local rule defining some unmarked rough areas as Lateral Hazards. They are:
Hole 6 Right of cart path to the fence
Hole 17 Right of cart path

The MARS Associates Golf Club accommodates men and women of all levels of golfing ability through the use of the Colorado Golf Association handicap system.  Membership in MARS Retirees is required in order to join the golf club.   Beginning in 2016 the league will play at only one course - Broken Tee in Englewood. Play begins in early April and continues through October.  Numerous formats are used to allow for both individual play and for team events.

Club members can count on playing every week.  Pairings accommodate the considerable amount of travel and other activities of busy retirees.  If you are unable to play in your scheduled event, just let your co-chairman for that event know and a substitute will be found, if possible.

The MARS Golf Member Guide  will tell you everything you need to know about the league.  To join the league at any time during the year, contact one of the officers.

PACE of PLAY IS VERY IMPORTANT!
Our league has worked hard over the last five years to improve our pace of play. Broken Tee golf course is very satisfied with our pace of play. However, do not get complacent! Follow the League Pace of Play Guidelines!

 

Broken Tee expects us to meet their requirements for Pace of Play.
- Expected time for a round is 4:20.
The tee time interval alternates 8/9 minutes. Given a start time and the number of foursomes, an expected finish time can be calculated. Let's shoot to stay under that time!

We need to keep focused on keeping up with the foursome in front.

Please remember to write down start, turn and end times in the spaces provided on the scorecard.

We need to be at the first tee 10 minutes early.

We need to record our start and stop times. Please record the time you complete the first 9 holes. Use an accurate watch to record times - a GPS or cell phone are very accurate.

We need to keep focused on keeping up with the foursome in front.

Review the rules! Review the rules! Review the rules!
