STANDING RULES

 
I. MEMBERSHIP
A.
To become a regular member, an applicant must have amateur standing and an established USGA index of 38.1 or better.  In lieu of the index requirement, an applicant may play a qualifying round (112) with a Shoreline WCG Board Member.    An applicant playing a qualifying round is not eligible to participate in that day’s game.  All new members shall play an introductory round with a Shoreline Board Member.

1. A member may obtain a temporary handicap by turning in five score cards to the handicap chairperson. After posting 20 scores, she will receive an established handicap.
2.
An applicant may attempt to qualify 3 times.   If unsuccessful she will be invited to Associate Membership.
3. Regular membership is limited to 120 members. To maintain membership, each member must attend one general meeting, be a starter and a scorer (the number of assignments will be based upon the needs of the club), and play 5 play days during the 12 months ending December 15. Members 70 years of age and older must play 3 games during the 12-month period. Members joining after July 1 must attend one general meeting, play five play days and pay $20 annual dues for that year.

County Team Play, she will receive one-half game credit for that day. If the game is on a Tuesday, she will receive one-game credit towards her 10-game requirement. If a member performs the duty of a marshal when Shoreline hosts County team play, or substitutes for the duty of starter/scorer in addition to her regular duties, she will also receive one-game credit.

These funds will be used to pay the bar bill for one drink per member present on the play day when the hole-in-one was made by a regular member. If a member makes a hole-in-one on a guest day, the celebration drinks will be awarded at the next regular play day when she is present. In addition, a gift from the club will be presented to the member at the annual awards meeting.
