Sign-up Procedures for OHGA Annual Dues and Events
In 2013, sign-up for OHGA annual dues and events will be done in the locker room via LOCKER #14. For those of you who have been in the skins games last year this worked out well. This procedure is only for OHGA events; city events or other events are not part of this.
The Pro Shop is not handling any OHGA Tourney entries or money. Do not leave money with the pro shop or staff. There is only one way to sign up for events – see instructions below.
What to do:
Please make sure you are taking the correct form for the event or events you wish to play.
You must be an OHGA member to sign up for an event. If you are not a dues paying member in good standing you will not be entered.
Your entry fee must be attached via paperclip to the entry form – CASH ONLY for entry fees please.
Please print your name legibly – please, NO nicknames or first names only. Please write your WSGA handicap number on the tourney entry forms.
Attach your entry fee/annual dues to the form, roll it up tight with a paperclip, and insert it in the hole above the locker handle. There is a box in the locker to catch entries.
Event entry forms for the next event will be available after another event is completed. All events are on colored paper for identification purposes.
All event entries must be received by 5:00 pm the Monday before the event date. NO EXCEPTIONS. The locker will be swept nightly and immediately before the 5:00 deadline.
Optional Scratch and Handicap Cash Skins will be done on event day – cash only – except for the first event, the Scramble. See separate form for information. Any questions can be directed to us through our CONTACT OHGA page.
The OHGA Board of Directors held their winter meeting February 20, 2013. Most everyone was well behaved. They elected the following officers after much back room caucusing.
President: Tim Alexander
Vice President: Eric Brinen
Secretary: Dan Smith
Treasurer: John Berman
The Wisconsin Badger Basketball team then thumped Northwestern.
There is a bit of confusion about WSGA handicaps for this year. At the beginning of the year the city de-activated everyone’s handicaps in an effort to save the city and respective associations money. This year you have to get your handicap from the WSGA. Ray Shane is working on a way to do this through the shop. You may be able to do this directly through the WSGA online. Check back here for more details.
Here’s a note from Ray:
“When the WSGA made everyone inactive…no thought( including the WSGA) was given to entry registration not being available. I spoke with the WSGA and had everyone activated. I will be talking with them again on our situation.”
If you “cash” in an OHGA event in 2013 you will receive your prize in the form of a gift card that you can redeem for anything the golf course offers: Carts, concessions, merchandise, greens fees etc. This replaces the so-called “Benny Bucks” program of the past. Also new this year, you will need to register your own handicap through the pro shop, meaning you’ll have to write one check for your OHGA dues and one for your handicap.
