All, attached are the results of the Modifed Scramble, proxies, and end of year payouts for each team. Checks will be mailed to each captain.
Shout out to Bill Thompson for agreeing to take over as League President. We will be in good hands going forward. Thanks to everyone for your flexibility this year in regards to COVID and the new handicap system. It was a pain but we got through it together. And thanks for allowing me to be your President for the past 13 years. Stay safe and see you next spring.
Fyi.....we will be playing from the White tees next week.
In addition, yesterday I informed the team captains that I am resigning as President after this year. If anyone has an interest to take over the league please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text me at 612-597-1630. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Also, your team captain has an overview of the responsibilities as President that I included in an email yesterday.
Its been a pleasure serving as President, but after 13 years I ready to hand over the duties to someone else. If I don’t hear back from anyone by the end of August the league will be dissolved.
Congratulations to Billy Wiberg for low gross in our club championship, as well as to all the other members who finished in the top 3 of low gross or low net. (As a reminder, for each flight I first determine low gross, then low net, then next low gross, and so on.)
Tee times for next week are also posted. We will do the Modified Scramble which was rained out earlier in the year. Rules are posted on the Events page.
All - please ensure that someone from each foursome can take a photo of the scorecard and text to me at 612-597-1630.
Good luck tonight!
Congrats to Team 10 - winners of the 2020 Round Robin competition.

Results from 7/28 posted. Looks like the Round Robin is coming down to the wire.
Results from the Low Gross \ Low Net event are now posted.
Sorry for the delay in posting results. Blame it on my vacation. Results for Pink Ball and latest Round Robin standings are updated. I also added a section for each week's Proxy winners. Reminder - captains need to report the proxy results to me via email or text. Do not return the proxies to the front desk - they will be discarded.
Looking forward to our annual 18 hole event next Tuesday - my favorite event each year. Low Gross/Low Net rules are included on the Events tab.
June 26 - Results from the latest Round Robin are posted. I have also updated the schedule to reflect the rainout of May 26. In addition, we will not be making up the Team Event on June 9.
Invoices were sent to all Captains this week.
Next week's team event is Pink Ball on the back 9. Rules are posted on this website.
PROXIES ARE BACK! We have been given the go-ahead to allow proxies so we will do so for the remainder of the year. As always, first group out responsible to get the cards on the course, and last group in is responsible to let me know the outcome.
June 18 - results posted. I also added the tee times for our 18 hole event on July 14.
June 4 - Thanks everyone for navigating through the storm on Tuesday. All teams got their round in. Results posted.
Team event next week will be the Modified Scramble. Rules pdf is on the Events tab.
May 26 update - golf CANCELLED tonight. No change to the schedule for next week - we will make it up later in the year.
Updated handicaps attached if your GHIN is associated with Baker. If not, your app.
Check back for any weather updates today. As always, a final go/no go decision will be made by 3 pm.
Results from the 4-3-2 event are now posted. Team 8 won a close one via tiebreaker on hole #12.
Baker staff has been having some issues merging GHINs for those of you that have multiple GHINs. Please be patient - hope to have it finalized by next week. However, as I've said, the GHIN app is awesome; you have your handicap available to you.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
Sorry for the delay in posting results - technical issues with the browser. Results for Round Robin Week 2 are now posted.
Team Event next week will be the 4-3-2 event. Rules are posted on the EVENTS page.
Everyone has a GHIN # established but I'm seeing that folks are not posting scores. PLEASE post your adjusted scores ASAP for all rounds you play - whether at Baker or anywhere else. Regardless whether you are a full time member or a sub, you are required to maintain a handicap. If you have questions please call me at 612-597-1630.
The GHIN app is turning out to be a must-have in order to post your scores and get your course-adjusted handicap. I recommend everyone uses the hole-by-hole feature on the app - it will automatically adjust your score for you. Even though this league is about fun and enjoying the game of golf, we want to make sure we have fair and equitable competition between us.
Enjoy the warmer weather. Karl
Everyone should now be set up with their GHIN. See report on Tee Times page. Remember, please use the GHIN app to calculate your course handicap.
News from the staff at Baker National:
As we get the 2020 golf leagues started, I want to mention that we all need to be aware of our actions in the building as well as outside the building.
There has been more gathering in the parking lot before and after league play. We are currently in a situation that we need to try to encourage league players to arrive at the course shortly before their scheduled tee time, and should be leaving the course as soon as possible after the round. At this time golf courses in Minnesota have been ordered to stop alcohol sales for the immediate future. This does not change the fact that players cannot bring their own beer, wine, or spirits.
Any help getting the word out to your players would be very much appreciated.
Good to see everyone last night. Thanks for your patience and flexibility as we work through the kinks of what golf will be like for the near future. Round Robin standings from Week 1 are now posted.

Hello. If you are viewing this website and interested in joining this league there are no openings for this golf season. Please check back next March for any openings for the 2021 season. Thank you.
League members, we are all set to start the 2020 season next Tuesday, May 5th. Instead of typing out results, etc. within this website every week, which I have historically done, I will likely just be publishing updated pdfs for you to review. This should be much easier to manage.
Tee times for the entire season are posted on the TEE TIMES tab.
A couple things to keep in mind:
Send a message and I'll reply as soon as I can
