Here at Silver Lakes Golf & Country Club or Men’s League runs every Friday night with tee times from 2:30 onward. Every year at our Masters Party on the Friday of the Masters we have a get together at the club with hors d’oeuvres and drinks. During the course of the evening our Captains are sequestered into the pro shop where they pick teams for the year based on the previous years player rankings. The player ranking list is established based off a combination of statistics/results as found on http://golfscoring.net/silverlakes and is given to the captains by our PGA of Canada Director of Golf Chris Bratten On Monday following the masters the teams are posted online for all to see and the race begins towards that years championship team!!
Each week Scores count for each player off that weeks Front 9. Players are welcome to play 18 holes but only their Front 9 score will be counted. Our weekly format involves a cash game broken down where: 50% goes towards our weekly team pot with a 60/40 breakdown to 1st and 2nd place team totals (ties are broken by the higher number of participants that week, if still tied it goes to the team with the higher scoring individual team member), 30% goes towards our flighted skins game. We have 4 flights keeping skins fair for everyone and avoiding instances where in some leagues single digit handicaps win the skins each week. The 1st three flights are “gross” flights and our 4th flight is a “net” flight. The remainining 20% of the weekly contribution goes towards the closest to the hole winners on each of the par 3’s that week. Each week scoring is a quota point game with points being awarded to players scoring bogey or better each hole. Points are also given to each team member playing on that particular week rewarding teams for having their team members show up regularly. Teams are easily distinguishable by their team shirts! (included in the cost of the yearly men’s league membership dues) Payouts will only be given to those team members who have opted into the cash game that week. You can’t win if you’re not in…………..our professional staff always takes pleasure in giving those players who might have potentially won but didn’t back themselves some “shtick” when they check in the following week. Don’t be that guy!! It’s not worth it! lol
Our “Pro-Am” is always a fun event every year in August where some of the golf professionals from the surrounding golf clubs come out and compete alongside our mens leaguers. Each team consists of 3 mens league players and 1 golf professional. You can sign up as a single, twosome or threesome and our golf professional Chris Bratten will assign you a Pro for the night. Some video below of our post round festivities. Pro-am fees are not included in the league dues but a fantastic deal including dinner/golf/cart is communicated through http://golfscoring.net/silverlakes the week prior to the event.

A delicious meal is also prepared for everyone not on the winning team however it is a self serve “buffet style”. We finish off the night with a raffle where all league members names are entered into a hat and our golf professional Chris Bratten and his staff make selections to establish winnners from a selection of amazing prizes including Taylormade, Titleist, Callaway, Cobra, Ping, Footjoy, Nike, Cleveland and Srixon product!!
