|REMINDER - Last Weekend to Post Scores |
|Course Raters Recognized||November 24, 2018 |
|One of the core functions of Miami Valley Golf is to ensure each course has a valid Course Rating and Slope. This is done by a very committed group of volunteer raters who are trained and follow the USGA Course Rating Procedures. Each year your Miami Valley Golf Association recognizes a female and male course rater for their service. In 2018, those raters are Linda Williams and Roger Drummond. |
Because of the USGA Course Rating and Slope and folks like Linda and Roger our game is enjoyed by people of all different abilities.

|Rule Change for 2019|
There will no longer be a penalty if a ball played from the putting green hits a flagstick left in the hole. Players will not be required to putt with the flagstick in the hole; rather, they will continue to have the choice to have it removed (which includes having someone attend the flagstick and remove it after the ball is played).
Reasons for Change:
Allowing a player to putt with the flagstick in the hole without fear of penalty should generally help speed up play.
