for President / Treasurer reserved tee times ;continuing until 5:24 pm.

The additional tee times were added in 2017 to accomplish :
1) More tee times to accommodate “ unscheduled players “ who appreciate being able
to show up and play on any given League date.
2) Earlier tee times to get more players off earlier
Unscheduled Players should refrain from scheduling the earlier tee times to allow
scheduled players first priority
Unscheduled Players MUST pay the Pro Shop $ 23.00 green fee and any cart fee
and present paid receipt to Starter prior to tee off.
Each VVMGL team will field FIVE players each week.
Captains will solicit Team Members availability for the entire season using VVMGL
schedule spread sheet. ( attached )
Rain Dates are indeed scheduled as a regular play date ; and should be included
in any Team members play date fees. If Rain Date is not needed credit / refunds
are issued to scheduled players at end of the season.
Captains need to have Season – long schedule completed on VVMGL schedule
spread sheet and submitted to President / Treasurer no later than Wednesday APRIL 24th .
Player Fees Collection
Captains are responsible for including on VVMGL schedule spread sheet and
communicating to Team Members the amount each Team member owes.
Player fees for the entire season are due upfront; prior to League play.
( Example = Player Joe is scheduled 10 dates x $ 23.00 = $ 230.00
Plus $ 50.00 Dues = $ 280.00 )
Captains should collect Fees / Dues from each Team Member and submit to Treasurer
all together if at all possible.
VVMGL fees are due to Treasurer no later than Monday April 29th
By VVMGL Bi-Laws ; Team members who have not paid their Fees prior to the
May 2 VVMGL start date may risk not competing for points ( competition ).
Captains should make every effort to have all Team Members register and utilize
the VVMGL website. Team Members should register profile information ;
especially email address and best phone contact.
VVMGL Sub List is quite robust at over 20 Subs ; including six 2018 VVMGL regulars.
Captains are encouraged to review and become familiar with the VVMGL By Laws ;
especially sections covering Forfeits ; Inclement Weather; and Playing Rules.
VVMGL playing rules are being reviewed / revised to ensure we capture any major 2019
USGA rule changes. ( with help from Noel Allen ) Will update on Website ASAP.
Complimentary 9 hole Village Links VIP Cards will be available starting Monday April 1st
for 2019 VVMGL regular members ( not Subs ) should members want to utilize
Village Link golf amenities prior to May 2nd VVMGL kickoff date.
