Next week, September 3rd, Handicap Leagues starts at 5pm! This means you must be signed in (you can have someone else sign you in who is present already) by 4:45 in order to be put on a card. No exceptions.
If you sign in on time, but fail to show up before tee off, you will get par +4 strokes for each hole you are late, regardless if you are sanctioned or not.
Sorry it has to be this way, but it's tough as it is getting started on time...stragglers can literally throw off the whole system.
