Welcome to the SCC 2023 golf season. My name is Don Patton and I am looking forward to my second year as Commissioner. I was first introduced to SCC golf when my son played in the early years of the program. He and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience since it was a great way to provide boys and girls the opportunity to learn fundamentals of the game, get a taste of competition, and most importantly at this young age, to have fun.
Commissioner golf background: I played high school golf, followed by college golf at Bradley University. I recently completed my sixth year as an assistant coach for the Brother Rice golf team. I enjoy coaching this great game to many who joined the program from the beginner level to those who had much more golf experience.
Golf Course: The Meadows in Blue Island. Tee times from 12:00 – 4:00. Fees charged by The Meadows TBD and must be paid prior to each round.
Participants: A maximum of 120 players will be allowed each week due to limited tee times and pace of play. If more than 120 players register for the program and commit to play in a particular week, tee times will be prorated on a basis to be discussed at the coaches meeting in March. All boys and girls must be in 8th grade.
Format of Play (all 9-holes):
Since weather for the first 2 weeks can be cold and players have not played all winter, we will play 2 different “Spring Training” events. These are intended to be fun events that will give the players experience in playing different formats of play.
Spring Training – 2 rounds:
Regular Season Stroke Play Rounds – 2 Rounds:
Championship Sunday Final Round:
Awards to be presented to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams and individuals, for both boys and girls divisions.
Team scores will be determined by counting the 4 lowest boys scores for the team score (similar to IHSA) and 2 lowest girls scores for the team score.
Coaches, please text or send an email to me stating your 1) name, 2) school, 3) cell # and 4) email address. I will create a coaches contact list and distribute to all. My contact information is detailed below.
