Allendale Cancelled

 
Hello Ladies: While the executive order requiring a 14 day quarantine for out of state travel has been lifted, Allendale has told us that they are unable to accommodate single carts for a tournament event.
 
Therefore, we need to cancel our tournament at Allendale.
 
This frustrating for all of us.
 
But, the good news is that the season will definitely kick off with the
Four Ball Tournament at Pawtucket CC on June 16th.
 
Look for an email on Monday with a sign up link.
 
Meanwhile, stay safe and enjoy the great outdoors.

Season Start Update

Meadow Brook Cancelled

We are disappointed to report that because Meadow Brook is unable to accommodate a tournament at this time, the tournament has been cancelled. 

We are hopeful to open the season on Monday June 1st at Raceway Golf Club, pending either the lifting of the executive order that requires Rhode Islanders leaving the state to self-quarantine for 14 days upon their return to the state, or  clarifying whether this order pertains to playing golf outside of the state.  We expect to have an answer by the time registration opens next week.

May 2020 Schedule Update – Due to COVID-19

SCHEDULE UPDATE
FROM THE PRESIDENT AND BOARD OF OSWGA
 
First of all, we sincerely hope this finds you healthy and well. Like most of you who are staying at home in accordance with state orders, we have been doing the same. We are also keeping our eye on developments, especially as they relate to: golf course availability, restrictions regarding travel across state borders, and the risks of being in close proximity to all but the necessary people in our lives.
 
Therefore, we have made the decision to cancel the first three tournaments in May and hopefully start our season at Meadow Brook on Tuesday May 26th. This is, of course, subject to the situation in the state at the time. We will send another update prior to the opening of registration, with hopes that it is safe to hold the event. We will also provide details as to likely changes in how we will conduct the tournament, including check-in procedures.
 
To clarify, here is the updated May schedule:
 
  • Agawam Hunt (5/6) Cancelled – update about a possible reschedule date to follow.
  • Fall River (5/12) Cancelled – update about a possible reschedule date to follow.
  • Segregansett (5/18) Cancelled – update about a possible reschedule date to follow.
  • Meadow Brook (Tuesday 5/26) Tentative Start of Season – details to follow in May
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please reach out to me or any Board member. We will do all we can to get our season underway, once it is deemed safe and responsible to do so.
 
Best wishes and stay safe,
 
Pat

COVID-19 Message from the President and Board of Director’s

FROM THE PRESIDENT AND BOARD OF OSWGA

We hope everyone is well and doing all they can to stay safe and healthy.

Please read below regarding changes to the 2020 Season due to COVID-19

SCHEDULE CHANGES – In light of the current state restrictions due to COVID-19 , and with the expectation that these restrictions may continue through April, we have made the decision to postpone and reschedule both of our April tournaments until the fall.

  • Lake of Isles – Originally April 20, rescheduled to Tuesday October27
  • Blackstone National – Originally April 27, rescheduled to Monday, October 19

We will evaluate our May tournaments over the coming weeks and send out an update in the middle of April. We may modify certain aspects of our current formats – including switching to tee times or eliminating lunch if it allows us to get playing sooner. This is dependent on state restrictions still in place and course cooperation.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR / PLAYER’S CHAMPIONSHIP – We have decided to waive the April 1st eligibility deadline for 2020.  Many golfers are currently uncertain as to where they will be living and playing golf this summer and we want to allow as much flexibility as possible. You still need to be a member of OSWGA to earn points, and they will not be awarded retroactively, but you can join when you come back to Rhode Island or are ready to play when we are back on track.

In recent weeks, we’ve all felt the change to our daily lives. In times like this, we want to stay connected to the people that we care about, and playing golf with our friends can be an important way to connect. As state restrictions allow, consider playing at those golf courses that have updated safety protocols to keep your friendships active. For those who are not yet in a position to get out there, consider calling your friends or use a free video conference site like ZOOM, to stay connected and engaged.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please reach out to me or any Board member. We will do all we can to get our season underway, once it is deemed safe and responsible to do so.

Best wishes and stay safe,
Pat
