Welcome to the St Wenceslaus Men's Golf League website.
We play on Thursday night at Miracle Hill Golf Course, which is located 3/4 of a mile north of 120th & Dodge St in Omaha, NE. The first tee time is 5:06 and the last tee time is around 6:00. The League Schedule, under Rosters & Schedules, shows tee times and team opponents.
The league dues (currently $160) covers the green fees, flag prizes, tournament green fees, and the season-ending banquet. Riding carts are optional and the cost of the cart is the responsibility of the rider. It is not included in the league dues.
The league consists of nine teams of eight players. On any given Thursday, four players from eight teams will be scheduled to play, and one team will have a BYE week. The Team schedules are established by the Team captain, who is responsible for contacting his team members to determine when they can (or cannot) play. Each player will be scheduled to play 8 times during the season. Substitutions (swaps) with other team/league members is allowed and encouraged. It is the responsibility of the player to arrange swaps and substitutions. Substitutes must be league members.
Each golfer is handicapped. See the League Parameters page for details. Player positions (A, B, C, or D) depend on their handicaps each night. Each foursome will be comprised of 2 players from one team and 2 players from the opposing team of equal position (ie A vs A, B vs B, etc). The first half of the season, the A & C and B & D players are grouped together. The second half of the season, the A & B and C & D players are grouped together. Variation to this set-up is allowed, with the approval of all members of both teams. Hopefully, this set-up will give you maximum exposure to different players in the league.
Teams will be playing for a total of 20 points each night. Each individual will compete for 4 points each night (2 points for Match play [most holes won] and 2 points for Stroke play [low net score]). An additional 4 points will be awarded at the team level (2 points for most total holes won and 2 points for low team net. Both formats (Match & Stroke) take player handicaps into consideration. In the case of a tie, 1 point is awarded to each player/team.
Players aged 70+ may choose to play from the GOLD tees. The choice applies to the entire season.
Play modified winter rules. On any lie, except in a bunker, improve the lie with a club head.
Play a lost or out of bounds ball as a lateral hazard. Keep the distance with one stroke penalty.
Putts must be completed unless conceded by your opponent.
Maximum score on a hole is par plus four.
Time limit to search for a lost ball is three minutes.
All team members of the first place team from the first half of the season (first 7 weeks) will play against all team members of the first place team from the second half of the season (second 7 weeks) in the league championship on week 17. There will be fun nights on week eight and sixteen (format to be determined).
Week 17 is also when the season-ending Tournament / Banquet takes place. All participants are split into three separate flights (based on handicap). First four places (low net) in each flight receive cash prizes.
We want everyone to have FUN!!!
