FSGA Golf Guidelines


Proper golf etiquette should be maintained by all. Golf is such a nicer game when we respect the course and others and help maintain the beauty and playability of our course by replacing divots, raking sand traps and repairing ball marks on the greens. Observe all rules posted by the Town of Fairfield regarding cart paths, dress code, etc.


Tournament formats will vary, with most tournaments establishing winners in net divisions and others in both gross and net divisions. The tournament chairman will be responsible for running all tournaments. Any questions regarding these tournaments should be directed towards the Tournament Chairman, Gerry Menees, gmenees@gmail.com 203-543-2415.

Scoring Procedures

Tournament scorecards must be turned in to the Tournament Committee and tournament adjusted scores must be posted in the computer. Failure to comply with scoring procedures may result in disqualification.

Outside Outings

There are several events where we send players to participate in outings outside of our course. We expect all players to represent themselves, and our club in a dignified manner. Any player who knowingly and willingly abuses this policy may be subject to exclusion from participating in Outside Outings in the future. Furthermore, any player who signs up and fails to "Show Up" at a particular event (without adequate reason) may be excluded from future outside outings at the discretion of the Board of Governors.
Each Outside Outing will have a designated coordinator who will be responsible for running the particular event. Any questions regarding these outings should be directed towards the designated coordinator.


All members will receive handicaps provided by the GHIN system. The system currently defaults all of our members to out "White Tee" rating. If you desire, the Handicap Chairman can default your GHIN number to the tee box you normally play.

Score Posting

All members are required to post their adjusted score in the computer. All scores (9 or 18 Holes) should be posted. Any member that doesn't post a tournament score will be disqualified from that tournament.  Any member who fails to post a league day score within three (3) days of play (by Friday for a Wednesday league day) will receive a warning for the first offense and, for subsequent failures to post a score, will have a “penalty score” equal to the member’s lowest posted round entered into the GHIN system by the Handicap Committee.   Members that habitually fail to post scores are subject to receive additional penalty scores.
