MANAGING CHANGE

The following is our initial protocol for operating our leagues for the 2020 season to ensure safety of customers and staff.  Please find information regarding 3 different opening day scenarios at the bottom of the page. We will need to work together to follow these procedures in order to ensure a safe and successful league season.
Posting Draw for the Week
Letting players know their tee time/hole and who they are playing with will all be done online. The draw will be posted on the league web page on the Sunday evening prior to the week of play. 
For those leagues that are team play (Monday and Tuesday night), each week you will designate an “early” twosome and a “late” twosome as well as a designated rider and walker. The rider must drive the cart at all times, while the walker can put his bag on the same cart, they must walk the entire 9 holes. The early twosome will tee off by 5:20pm, late twosome by 5:30PM. Players can arrive between 4:45-5:25 but must wait for their partner to arrive before heading to their hole. As soon as your partner has arrived, you must load up and go directly to your starting hole and wait until tee off (DO NOT PLAY A WARM-UP HOLE). Please approach the carts while applying social distancing practices. 
Golf Carts
Golf carts will be single rider only. To make this work, each week you will designate a driver and a walker. The driver will be the only player that can drive the golf cart and sit in the golf cart. The walker will be able to place their golf bag on the cart but will not be able to sit in the cart. When selecting their golf clubs, players must adhere to physical distancing rules.
If you have a twosome where both players must ride, please let us know and we will discuss options. 
We have decided to keep the cart price ($130.98 for the full season including final tournament) in the price of the league. We will assess the impact that single riders and walkers have and provide a credit prior to the end of the season. The credit will reflect a fair amount that can be used for carts rides or green fees outside league play.
Checking In and Paying
We need to reduce line ups and make it as much “no touch” check in as possible. Therefore we have to have each player pay for the league online prior to our first night. We will not have our annual opening tournament for the Tuesday Night League this year, however we will have an opening “trial” day for the league.
We have posted on the league web page the costs of the league based on when we are able to begin. Please refer to the tables there.
If you want to hit the driving range prior to play, you will need to go to the web page and purchase a driving range bucket HERE. We will safely provide the bucket when you arrive. Keep in mind, if you arrive too early you may have to wait at your car for a period of time.
Scoring
We will not be able to use score cards as there is too much handling and possible exposure to our staff.
Because the league has at least one cart each week per foursome, we will be doing all scoring on the GPS. You will add the team names (2 scores) at the beginning of the round and enter a score for each team on each hole. Make sure you start scoring on the correct hole.
At the end of the round, you will email the score into the golf shop (it is an option on the GPS) and we will tally the wins and losses. The standings will be updated weekly.
We will begin the league with two divisions and make adjustments part way through the season (approx 6 weeks).
50/ 50 Draw
The 50/50 draw helps provide some of our prizes at the end of the season. We will run the 50/50 draw again this year with the following changes:
– each week you tell our staff member at the halfway hut that you are in for the week
– the staff person will write your name on the square you requested
– prior to the end of the round, we will send a note out via GPS with the name of that weeks winner
– we will record who owes and after 6-8 weeks, you will receive a notice on how much you owe
– we will pay out the winners every 6-8 weeks, after we receive payment from those who are entered.
On-course Competitions
We will have our regular closest to the pins each week. There will not be a pencil or marker this year. We are going to try taking a picture as the record of who is closest.
Here is how it works:
– each week we will post online what holes are the competition holes.
– if you are within 10 feet (3 or 4 paces), your partner takes a picture of the ball (where it came to rest) on their right and the pin on their left and you standing between. 
– if you are really close just make sure your face is somewhere in the picture so we can identify the winner.
– you will email the picture to golf@trilliumwood.com subject “Closest to the Pin” and we will compare the pictures and determine the winner.
– the winner and the picture will be posted on the web weekly and the prize will be available for pick up the following week.
Skins
For skins, email golf@trilliumwood.com for the Tuesday Night League to inform us if you are participating in skins. You will pay $50 for your team for the first 5 weeks on the first night of league to reduce the amount of payments. Email a picture of your scorecard to Trillium Wood after your round to be eligible to win a skin.
For Monday Night League, e-transfer Jerry Traer (jerrytraer@workplacesafetynorth.ca) $50 for the first 5 weeks for Monday Night League to inform Jerry you are in skins. Email a picture to Jerry after your round to be eligible for a skin.
Skins for both leagues will be by division.
Lunch/Food
At this point, our plans are to use the Half-Way hut for food preparation and distribution. This precludes that there is no sit down meals. The clubhouse may not even be open except the golf shop. 
Each week, we will have “on the go” food that can be picked up prior to heading out. We will set up a pre-order procedure so that we can ensure we have enough food ready prior to teeing off. We are working on the details on how best to execute and will provide more details soon.
As well, if you would like “food to go” after the round, we will have options for you to choose from and order so that it is ready to take home to eat. We will ensure safe handling and will do our best to make the options interesting.
