Men's 18 Hole League 2013 sign-up


CROSSVILLE — In this month's issue of Golf Digest, Crossville was named as a top five best off the beaten track buddies trip destination. For many golfers here in Fairfield Glade, the Men's 18 Hole League is a place to find golfing buddies on Wednesday mornings from spring to fall. Currently, more than 100 golfers are members of our league, and we are always looking to welcome new players into the league regardless of whether you are a new arrival or a long time resident.

League play begins the first Wednesday in May and ends the last Wednesday in September. The league is divided into an A Division and a B Division. The A Division has players with a GHIN index of 20 or less, plays from the white tees and in conformance with the USGA rules of golf. The B Division plays from both the white and gold tees and by more “relaxed” rules, which means that you will never have to hit that 3 wood from a fairway divot! The B Division has players having a GHIN index up to 36. Play on Wednesday mornings is a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start, so that all rounds should normally be completed before noon, in time for that afternoon nap or to tackle the latest honey-do list.

There is a $70 member fee and all of these monies go back to the players either in prize money or the preseason breakfast and post season lunch meetings. More complete information can be found on our web pages: A Division( or B Division( ). If you have any questions fell free to call League President John Pfeiffenberger (aka “The Golf Czar) at 707-5511.
