The first 10 weeks of league next year at Cliff Drive will be PDGA leagues.http://www.pdga.com/leagues
I will initially pay the $25 fee, and then based on this, league will raise to $6 for club members $7 for non-club members.
That means that league payout will be based as follows:
-$1 discount for Club Members (Why you typically pay $5 for leagues now as a member)
PDGA League in 2013
$1-PDGA/Cliff Drive Tree Fund (the PDGA gives back 1/2 of the $1 to the local club, this will remain in Cliff Drive Tree Fund)
-$1 discount for club members (Thus $6 for Current members or $7 for non-current Members deduct $1 if you don't want in the ace fund)
You will need to be in attendance for at least 6 of the 10 weeks to qualify for the "series award" (TBD, but I will have something) I would also encourage more participation for Am's in this series as well this upcoming year.
TO surmise some of the benefits (From Kevin McCoy formerly of Tulsa notoriety) :
It gives players more rated rounds that equates to more accurate player ratings.
It will allow offering handicap events which are popular with recreational players.
It helps to determine which division is best suited for players.
I was involved in a very successful club in Tulsa and I really have a strong desire of wanting to help strengthen clubs and leagues. Giving something back to the club is essential to making the PDGA work for them. Here are some of the benefits the clubs will get out of the running leagues.
Special Promotional PDGA Membership Discounts
Ĺ of the $1 league fee stays with the league for course improvements, baskets, charities, etc. (see my comment above)
Exposure and advertising for your league through PDGA.com
Here is how PDGA Sanctioned Leagues are going to work initially. The first phase for 2012 will roll out in March, once daylight savings kicks in. We are offering sessions of 6 to 10 weeks for your league. We are going to start out keeping it simple with basic singles play, but in later phases we will be able to offer other formats.
Anyone interested in becoming a league director can contact the PDGA and get a League Director package.
It will be a $25 PDGA sanctioning fee
The PDGA will provide the league director a League Director Spreadsheet.
The spreadsheet will be able to track the results of your league auto-magically.
Each league then is able to view results on the league page on PDGA.com.
The spreadsheet the League Director will receive will be a simplified TD report in Excel spreadsheet format. Itís a very simple page that just tracks names and scores, for uploading to the PDGA website. And, for the more dedicated TD's that want to input more data it can be used to track more detailed stats like your Birdies, Bogies, wins, losses, etc.
