A. Men play Blue Tees each weekly event unless modified by a specific game. Sr. Men play White Tees each week unless modified by a specific game. Super Seniors over age 75 may play from whatever tee they choose, including the red tees.
A. No. Play as few or as many events at you like. The more you play, the more participation points you can earn for year end Cup standings and raffle tickets.
A. Yes. You will need to pay membership dues at each location if you want to participate at both locations. (No extra membership fee is required to play a different division at the same course. Such as a Sr. man playing in regular Men’s division and Sr. Men’s division.)

Automatic participation points are awarded to all who play each week, more points depending where you place and how many association events you play in. Some bonus events require players to have a minimum amount of points to play. (Meaning you have to use some points to buy in, and you can’t join the Association just in time to enter the tournament.) Points are also used to buy raffle tickets and prizes at the end of the season.

Q. If I miss a social event or member appreciation giveaway, can I get reimbursed?
A. Unfortunately, due to the nature of most of these things, they are “use it or lose it” bonuses for members. We realize it is impossible for everyone’s schedule to attend each and every event, but we try to do several events to make up for this.
Q. Do I need to have a team member?
A. No because most events are individually scored. We do occasionally have scrambles where two members from the association team up. We can help you find a partner if you don’t have one. A lot of members do sign up with friends so they can golf together. You must play your weekly games with at least on other registered member. Your scorecard must be attested by another member of the association to count.
Q. Is there no junior league at Crane Field?
A. Members with UGA handicaps may use their index to immediately establish a house handicap, but you do not have to be a UGA membership to play. If you do not have a UGA membership you simply need to play two 18 hole rounds (or two nine hole scores on each side) to establish an in-house index. Not difficult at all, and we do all the work entering your scores each week to keep your handicap accurate. Once established, your handicap is used for Low Net events and for determining flight divisions.
A. Yes, the presidents sets up a schedule of events and posts it at the clubhouse, online, and makes copies for members to take home. So it’s important to read the calendar carefully. Link to Event Calendar
