The following are the resolutions voted and approved by the BMGC Board at the Tuesday May 2, 2017 Board Meeting.  These resloutions are now in effect and are based on the Steering Committee recomendations appointed by the BMGC Club President

BMCG Steering Committee Recommendations for the Tournament and Handicap Committees

Problem statement

The Handicap Committee is not following the Brookside Policies and Procedures for Handicapping, as recently exhibited by the adjustment of select member handicaps for a recent monthly tournament.


The Brookside Policies and Procedures for Handicapping, particularly with regard to handicap adjustments, is unclear and subjective, which by its implementation, has strained contentment of the general membership.


Handicap adjustments have been made by members of the Tournament Committee, which is outside this committee’s purview.

Findings

The Steering Committee Goals:

  • ·      Improve transparency
  • ·      Remove subjectivity
  • ·      Adjustments are objective
  • ·      Improves Communication and Club Environment


The following are the recommendations to the committees.

Tournament Committee (TC) recommendations

·         Tournament handicap and scoring format should be agreed upon at the BMGC meeting prior to format being published.  The Tournament Committee submits the handicap and scoring formats to BMGC board meeting for concurrence two months prior so the web tournament posting is clear prior to open registration.  Clearly define both formats for the tournament events on the web page.
1.       Handicap Format; Low index or Current Index.
2.       Scoring Format; Tournament round or home round
·         The Tournament Committee Chair should not be part of the Handicap Committee
·         The Handicap Committee Chair should not be part of the Tournament Committee
·         The Tournament Committee may not impose handicap adjustments

Handicap Committee (HC) recommendations

  •          The minutes need to include the list of members who were reviewed during the Handicap Committee meetings.
  •          Any player affected by an adjustment should be notified in writing and have 48 hours to submit a request for an appeal.  Appeals and resolution must be made in writing and should occur before a tournament event and before an adjustment is made.
  •       Update the Handicap Committee mission statement for any recommendations that the BMGC board concurs with.

Steering Committee Considerations to the BMGC Board for Handicap Committee changes

  •         The Handicap Committee should always be an odd number of members for the committee
  •        The Handicap Committee Chair does not vote on any adjustment unless there is a tie between the handicap committee members voting (Ex 4-4 or 3-3 tie).  The Handicap Committee Chair’s vote will break any ties.
  •         The Handicap Committee should be 9 members.

o   Change the current 7 members to reduce the amount of BMGC board members

o   The committee should consist of no more than 4 BMGC Board Member and 4 or more club members. 

o   The Handicap Committee should never include more BMGC Board Members then regular members

o   The Handicap Chair could be rotated every three (3) years from a BMGC Board Member to a regular member.


BMGC Handicap Committee

PAY PLAY POST

These are the three key words that enable the Brookside Men’s Golf Club to maintain a proper Handicap Peer Review system.

It’s that simple.

We ask that each BMGC member, pay for his round, play their round to the best of their ability and then post their score immediately following their round.

PAY PLAY POST

It’s that simple.

The Brookside Men’s Golf Club Handicap Committee is just part of the Peer Review that every golf club has in place to ensure fair competition.

We are not here to single out individual players. We are here to ensure all members are treated fairly.

So all we ask is that you:

  Addendum to the local rules for all BMGC tournaments and matches:

Any damage caused from vehicles parking on the golf course for Rose Bowl events is ground under repair (GUR). This rule is through the green (whole area of the course except the teeing ground, the putting green being played and all hazards).

Relief is the closest point no nearer the hole for stance and swing. No penalty.


Brookside is located next to the world famous Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California and is managed by American Golf and the Rose Bowl Operating Company
