Monticello Country Club Men’s Club
MCC Men’s Club welcomes all members to what is expected to be a great 2009 season.
The MAIN emphasis of the MCC Men’s Club is to have fun and enjoy yourself while playing a round of golf. We at
Monticello Country Club pride ourselves in a golf philosophy to tailor our weekend games (tournament and non-
tournament days alike), to the magic of competitive golf. In addition, the members of the MCC Men’s Club also respect
the game of golf as it is meant to be played… by the rules. With this idea in mind, we feel it is each member’s
responsibility to know the rules of golf and play by them.
Since golf is an individual game, we gear our events to play on an individual basis. In addition, because golf is also a
social game, we encourage a team spirit with several assorted team events.
The following items are what you need to know about our Men’s Club.
Your dues of $110.00 are allocated to the following.
1. Prize fund for Men’s Club events.
2. Your MGA handicap service.
3. The Men’s Club MGA and MPGA dues.
4. Insurance for any Hole-In-One during our scheduled Men’s Club events.
5. Our Men’s Club score cards.
6. Other administrative expenses.
All members must have an established MGA handicap card. Please contact the MCC Men’s Club handicap chairman,
Kristi Dostal, with any questions concerning handicaps. 2008 MGA handicaps from other golf courses are transferable
and accepted for tournament play. As noted above, part of your dues are used to pay for your MGA official handicap
card. Your card is updated approximately every two weeks during the golfing season. It is your responsibility to enter all
ADJUSTED 18 hole and 9 hole scores played between April 15th and October 15th into our MGA computer system at the
Handicap and Scorecard Procedure:
Our handicap “Station” is located in the Monticello Country Club Pro Shop. Here you will find our official scorecards, our
computer system for handicaps, your current handicap card and a current list of all Men’s Club Member’s Handicaps. It
is suggested to enter all home and away scores as soon as possible.
Your MGA handicap card can be used for play throughout the United States. All Men’s Club competition is based on
your Men’s Club Handicap. When you travel to other courses, you need to be aware of your USGA index. Check with
the course personnel at the away course to see what handicap you should use while playing there.
Those who place “in the money” in our club events are issued club prize money (Tournament Credit). All tournament
credit awarded during the golf season (Approximately $5500.00 depending on number of members) will be redeemable
at the Monticello Country Club Pro Shop for merchandise (current stock or catalog orders). The tournament results are
usually available at the clubhouse within five days of the tournament. You can also check the bulletin board for all
results. Results are also posted on our MCC web site, usually with one day of the tournament.
REMINDER!!!!!! All Men’s Club tournament credit must be redeemed for merchandise on or before October 31st of
the current year. NO CARRY OVER TO THE NEXT SEASON!!!!!
Every member has Hole-In-One insurance for the 2009 season for aces made at the Monticello Country Club. In order to
collect, the Hole-In-One must be made during our scheduled Men’s Club events. The insurance award is based on the
number of Hole-In-Ones and the amount of money in the Hole-In-One pool.

played from different tees, but will be posted before the round. The Men’s Club computer automatically records your
