2018 Season News & Notes

Member-Member Recap

Mother Nature, though threatening on day one cooperated for a great day of competition.  Thanks to the generosity of Brian Romano (and the graces of the golf gods) the 19th hole was hopping afterward.  Brian carded his inaugural Hole in One on the fifth hole in the third match.  Unfortunately the skins didn't payout for that round but the Richter Park Men's Club paid $500 for this milestone.  Congrats Brian and thank you for your generosity!!!

On Sunday, the weather much was nicer for the concluding matches, ironman and Overall winner shootout.  Complete results are posted.  More Congratulations to Brian Romano and partner Kevin Nadeau for winning the overall Member-Member for 2018. Brian made the birdie putt after the approach shot of Kevin in the first round.

A huge thank you to all that contributed to another fun and successful Member-Member weekend: Professionals Brian Gehan and Jonathan Pinto, Superintendent Rob Dorsch and crew, the spotters/rangers, Cafe on the Green staff, and Anthony's Lake Club.

Thank you to RPMC Board Members Gary Lehman and Peter Walz for handling the para-mutuels and event coordinators Jesse Greee and Chuck Hansen.

Gold Tee Player Eligibility for 2018

The RPMC Board reviews various aspects of the club operations and policies and will make changes from time to time.  The policy to allow players to use the Gold Tees was implemented a few years ago to permit maximum participation in our events.  This should be seen as an accommodation for eligible players and not an advantage.  Accordingly, after reviewing results from 2016 and discussion among the Board the eligibility criteria remain:

  • Players of Minimum Age of 65 years
  • GOLD Course Minimum Handicap of 22 (Index of 21.4)

Equitable Stroke Control & Posting Scores

Once in a while during a round, there may be one or two holes that can just make a mess of your scorecard.  If you don't believe it, play in the Danbury Amateur or watch the 8th or 15th holes during the event.   A loose swing here, rinse a ball there, trouble in the bunker, three-jack on the green and all of a sudden it's a big number on the card.

Equitable Stroke Control is a procedure for adjusting your gross score for posting.  This procedure places a maximum on the score recorded for any hole.  First convert your handicap index to the COURSE HANDICAP.  This can be done through the course handicap charts at the golf course, the GHIN app or by the following calculation HcpIndex x Course Tee Slope/113 and round accordingly.  For example, an index of 11.7 converts to a COURSE HANDICAP on the WHITE TEES of 14.  Using ESC for a COURSE HANDICAP of 14 is 7.  So any score higher than a 7 should be reduced to a 7 for posting purposes.

 Course Handicap
Max Score
 9 or less  Double Bogey
 10 through 19 7
20 through 29
 30 through 39
 40 and higher
