Openings available in faculty and staff golf league

The UST faculty and staff golf league will form again this year, and there is room for additional golfers.

The league meets each Tuesday for 14 weeks, beginning Tuesday, May 19, and ending Tuesday, Aug. 11. Tee times run between 4 and 4:45 p.m.

Cost is $20 per week, $280 for the season. If you are a season ticket holder for St. Paul, all fees are waived. Play alternates weekly between the front and back nines at Highland National Golf Course in St. Paul.

Alternates also are needed for the league and can play as needed, paying only for that week. Full-time play is open to current and former UST faculty and staff. All skill levels are welcome.

If interested in playing, contact Kevin Knutson , (651) 962-6807. Note in your e-mail if you have a partner with whom you'd like to play.

League format
The league plays in a two-person match and medal-play format. Partners are picked and retained for the entire season. The league is flighted and handicapped. Whichever player has the lower handicap each week is the A player. The higher handicapped player is the B player. Each team's A player will be matched against an opposing team's A player, and each team's B player will be matched against the opposing team's B player each week.

Each pair competes in both match and medal (stroke) play each week. Points then are awarded to winning teams.

If that's confusing, don't worry – the league takes care of it all. All you have to do is show up, play your best each week and, most of all, have fun.
