Men's League


The Men’s League is open to Birch Bay Village Golf Club Members and their guests with a GHIN handicap index. Each player must pay the appropriate Green Fee for their round at check-in. Participants play with other Members of varying levels of golf skills with GHIN handicap indexes. We will get you in a group and out playing. If you don’t have a GHIN handicap index, you can establish one through the Club. The League generally plays a shotgun start so we all finish at approximately the same time to enjoy lunch, beverage, and snacks from the Golf & Grille at the end of the round.

Course Handicap

A course handicap is a number that indicates how many handicap strokes a golfer receives at the specific golf course (and specific set of tees) being played.  Course handicap usually differs from a player’s GHIN index due to a specific course’s rating and slope.

*The Club Membership fee is $20 US and includes club meetings, special events and cost of meals at events. 

**Stroke play; also known as medal play, is a scoring system in the sport of golf in which the total number of strokes per player or team is counted over one, or more rounds, of 18 holes.
