Much of our league information (schedule, results, roster) is being maintained in Golf Genius

****

In 2021 the MARS Golf League approved the use of a USGA tool called Golf Genius for managing the league. There will be many changes to our operating documents and this web site. You can read our first cut at the Event Manager Guidelines. Other document revisions are underway and will be made available as they are completed.
Results will no longer indicate tie breakers. Hole by hole scores for all players are available on the Golf Genius portal. If you want to see the hole by hole scores used by Golf Genius for breaking ties you can.

Since we are not having an in-person kickoff meeting you will need to mail your check to:


Our assessment this year has not changed. It remains $75. If you want to participate in the Hole-In-One pool you will need to pay an additional $5.00. This is a onetime charge until there is another hole in one. You can check to see if you are in the pool here.

Broken Tee has asked that we tee off on the first tee at our scheduled tee times. Do not go to the tee box until your group is called. This is part of Broken Tee's COVID 19 mitigation approach. This 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 began playing only one course - Broken Tee in Englewood. Play begins the first Thursday in April and continues through the last Thurday in 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 is 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.

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!
