And so it begins with a chilly Wednesday evening, tonight March 15. We will start with a Battle of Blue Valley preview, heading to a shortened Blue Valley (Mo) course.
Sign up at 445, cards of three ideally out at 500. Sunset is 7:26, civil twilight ends at 7:56. Lights will be allowed if needed due to conditions.
KCFDC Divisions offered, based on past participation:
Funny money payout
Pdga divisions will be only Open (pro) and Advanced Men (am). Those divisions give the most points. Ratings do not change because of divisions. League wins don't count on your pdga history.
Cost: $5 for KCFDC members and $6 for non-members. Add a buck for the ace fund. The ace fund for the traveling league starts at $210.
This is a 7 week pdga league. These ratings will be in by the deadline so they will count for the KCWO, if you need rated rounds for the performance flight.
