Golf is a tremendously versatile game. It can be enjoyed alone or in groups; with handicaps, players of differing skills can play together. It can be distorted with gimmicks and contest or played by its rules and it’s almost always fun. But, the game is never completely experienced except when played competitively.
The problem is finding competitive events for ‘regular’ players, high or low handicap, once you’re out of high school. With a time commitment of only 18 holes a month, PCCMA not only solves that problem but also provides a great group of guys with which to play the game and socialize.
The Painesville Country Club Men’s Association annually conducts a series of competitive events for amateur players with handicaps from 0-36. Events are scheduled every three weeks throughout the golf season. There is no fee to join the association, though there is a small entry fee for each event.
Also, a handicap card, purchased anytime at the club, is a must. A Minimum of two 18-hole rounds must be posted before the first event. Play in as many events as possible in that points earned accumulate toward qualifying for the Ryder Cup event. Sign up sheets will be posted at the club.
