Kevin LarizzaChippewa Golf Club is getting ready for its 2018 Monday scratch series! We have all brand-new golf carts and we’re focused on getting the golf course in perfect shape for the upcoming season.

The Chippewa 2-Man Scratch League will kick off its official 2018 season on Monday, May 7th. We look forward to seeing all of Northeast Ohio’s best amateur players every Monday.

As a warmup to that official start, we will have two individual 9-hole $20 big skins games during Monday league time on April 23th and 30th. These league warmup dates are unofficial, no partner required.

But then come Monday, May 7th, it’s official 2-man team time, with the results counting toward the 2018 Scratch League Leaderboard! Formats will continue to alternate every week as they have in the past: 2-player scramble, better ball, combined score, shamble, and jumble.

Just like last year, players pay a $15 event pot entry fee each week, or they can pay $180/man for the event pot for the entire 18 week season in advance (save $90!). An optional skins game of $10/man per week is also collected at check-in. All money collected for pot and skins is paid back out as prizes, with payouts as cash or gift certificates at the player’s choice.

The 9-hole golf+cart fees are $23/man paid weekly, or as a new option they can be pre-paid in advance for the entire 18 week season at $349 (save $65!).

So if you wish to pre-pay both the golf+cart and league pot, the total is just $529 for the entire season — which will save you a tidy $155.

Just like last year, we will add together all of the $10 and $15 pot entries to determine each week’s pot prize total.

Skins will remain at $10 per week per player, and carry-over skins will still apply when there is no outright winner any week.

Players can compete with the same partner each week, or they can mix it up and play with different partners all the time. League entry fees are collected individually (not by team) so a player can partner with anyone on any week.

2-Man Monday Scratch League Chippewa Golf ClubThere will be two 3/3/3 Steak Nights in 2018 again — held on Week 10 and Week 18 — as our way of saying thank you to our league players. Primo steak dinners with all the trimmings will cost just $15 to whomever wants to eat, payable at check-in on steak nights.

The Scratch League tee will be open from 4:30p – 6:00p for the league this year. We are tightening this up a bit to better fit the size of the league and help our business, too. So please be at Chippy on time on Mondays ready to go during this tee time range, not before or later.

The league will be off for two 2018 summer holidays dates: Memorial Day on Monday, May 28th; and Labor Day on Monday, September 3rd. (See the Tournament Calendar.)

And again for 2018, the top points earner on the 2018 Chippewa Scratch League Leaderboard will win a gift certificate for anything Chippewa — just like defending champ Ty Kovach did in 2017!

Finally, the Monday Noon Big Skins Game will continue in 2018, too, with the tee open from 12:00a until 12:45p. Noon Skins players must be on time as the entry envelope closes promptly at 12:45 p.m. — no exceptions! Cost for the skins game is $50 for amateurs and $100 for pros. Cost for golf + cart is $35 for ‘play all day’ – which is perfect for the guys who roll right into league night. (If you pre-pay for Scratch League golf+cart, you only owe another $15 for any all-day play!) Come on out for the early Monday Big Skins Game whenever you can.

We look forward to seeing even more NEOH players in 2018 starting April 23 for warmups and officially on Monday, May 7th…
