Ace fund will start at $100 thanks to the KCFDC BoD.  I appreciate the BoD providing a start up Ace fund for this KCFDC sanctioned league.

Divisions offered:
The reporting of divisions will differ for the PDGA and KCFDC.  For the payout portion (KCFDC), it will be based on standard KC league formats.  In order to have a division, 3 people or more need to be available for the least restrictive denominator per Pro or Am division

For example –
1-5 Open players – all play Open.
6+ Open players, can split into various divisions (Open, Pro Masters, Pro Women, Pro Grand Masters, etc.)

1-5 Am players – All play Advanced
6+ Am players – Can be split into various divisions (Advanced, Advanced Women, Intermediate, Rec, etc.)


Payouts will be the approved KCFDC format as shown here:

Reporting to the PDGA:
As far as reporting to the PDGA there are two benefits: first to get a rating, second to get point used for Pro and Am Worlds.  It benefits everyone, top and bottom, to be placed in the same grouping for points if the highest categories are used.  Therefore, for the PDGA reporting it will be simply Open and Advanced regardless of gender or age.

The Spring 2014 PDGA League will be a rolling, wandering league titled Wandering Wednesdays.  Just because we are wandering, we are not lost.  (Believe it or not, a lot of thought has been put into this.)

The official PDGA 10-week portion of the league will start April 16.  This delayed start is so we can capture the last Wednesday before the Wide Open in the league format, June 18th.  I'm hoping we get some pro's out there to test the course prior to the tournament.  We’ll have two weeks of non-PDGA reporting on April 2 and 9 because I’m antsy to get going.

For the 10-week PDGA League, the fee structure will be:
KCFDC Members
With Ace Fund - $6
Without Ace Fund - $5

Non-KCFDC Members
With Ace fund - $7
Without Ace fund - $6

Fee structure for non-PDGA dates (April 2, 9) will be:
KCFDC Members
With Ace Fund - $5
Without Ace Fund - $4

Non-KCFDC Members
With Ace fund - $6
Without Ace fund - $5

The schedule will be:

April 2 – WyCo – 5:30 check in, 5:45 or earlier tees (non-PDGA date)
April 9 – WyCo – 5:30 check in, 5:45 or earlier tees (non-PDGA date)

** PDGA STARTS **
April 16 – WyCo – 5:30 check in, 5:45 tees

April 23 – Prairie Center (PC) – 5:30 check in, 5:45 tees

April 30 – Shawnee Mission Park (SMP) – 5:30 check in, 5:45 tees

May 7 – Lakeside (Olathe Birdland) – 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

May 14 – WyCo - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

May 21 – PC - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

May 28 – SMP - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

June 4 – Lakeside - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

June 11 – To be determined.  Will post by May 29

June 18 – WyCo - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees.  Should be set to KCWO Gold settings

The June 11 TBD will be determined after informally listening to suggestions from those that actually come to the league.  Because this is a KCFDC approved league, for various reasons it needs to remain on a KCFDC KS course.  Our choices will be:
SMP, WyCo, PC, Lakeside, Rosedale Up Top (if ok with Rosie league director), Rosedale Down Under.

Yeah I was kind of shocked they are doing one at Pomona.  I like that course (mostly).  It's best to play in the spring.

I'm wondering what they are going to do with the hole that shoots over the playground and then the three holes directly after that which have very narrow fairways with the tall grass.  I'm hoping they convince the Corps of Engineers to widen those 3 fairways a bit and do an alternate pin / teepad for the playground hole.  Otherwise, I really do like that course.

The spring 2014 PDGA will be a rotating course league.  I'll post more information later when I have some time today / this weekend.

Our goal is to be a cooperative club.  After further discussions with the BoD, we've decided to leave the Friday WyCo league as is because somebody has stepped forward to run the league.  Thanks Mark.

Again, the official WyCo league will remain on Fridays.  The PDGA league will be rotating courses.  I'll post more information under the League forum.

I'm not involved in this at all.  Probably should contact DD.  My guess is Centennial.  Riverfront would only accomodate 45 players as it is 9 teepads and 18 baskets and they share the same fairway.

Hey guys and gals!

Ever wonder what your KCFDC Number is? Has the thought of letting your KCFDC membership expire been keeping you up at night?

I've consolidated our fine data and made it available for viewing!

League directors, this list will be updated at minimum weekly. Also, this is a very rough draft of our final product. Stay tuned for more updates!

This list is not current.

Yeah, I noticed that too.  I had one round change from a 690 round to a 850 round.  Quite the difference.  I also had a couple 910 rounds drop to 880 ish.

Sorry I was such a wanker and forgot my tag at home.  Really, I did.

Nice to meet Mark and everyone else.

I doubt I'll make it too often this year, I had a rare night when I didn't have to pick up my daughter.

The 'TBD' implied there would be an encouragement for Am's.  If it's on pure average than obviously a pro would win, which isn't very Am friendly.  If we are looking at raw scores, I would think averaging the rating instead of the raw score when using multiple courses and pin placements would be the truer measurement. 

Then again, one could also use the PDGA Points as the determination which would mean Matt Crowe would lead everyone regardless of division with 95 points, even higher than Jose Ossa.  I guess not having it clear before it was started sure added some confusion.

But hey, that's your call, right, since you ran the league?  I mean, I applaud you for stepping up and taking on change by running KC's first PDGA sanctioned league.  Kuddos.
