Back in the day ('97-'98?) there was an official KCK city~posted notice at Rosedale stating that on league-night (Wednesday's) the club had (somewhat exclusive) rights to run their league...essentially meaning that casual players were to allow the league players to play-thru so that we could all finish at the same approximate time.
Nearly every course in town has a league-night of its own...and yielding to league traffic by skipping a hole (or more)...or at the very least physically asking to play thru...helps the league players to finish while there's still some daylight remaining. This gets more and more challenging this time of year as the daylight diminishes............ $0.02
Yes Steve, am sorry to hear of this sad news...no words sufficient to describe your despair. Our sport is a supportive one - and playing will help to lessen your sorrow. I hope to see you out at a course or league soon. doc Norby
