As you approach the Pro Shop at Oak Hills, you will see the large bulletin board outside the Pro shop door. There you will find notices, and, most importantly, Pairing sign-up sheets for each day that the tournament is being run. Tournaments are scheduled each week, (although some run for two consecutive weeks) and are played on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, or Sundays. All the various tournament formats are described in the handbook and this website.

Simply write your name, phone number, and walking or riding preference on the Pairings sign-up sheet for the day which you intend to play. You may sign up to be included in the pairings, even if you do not want to participate in the tournament. This usually happens when a new member has not yet established a handicap, but would like to be paired with a group. Tournaments that involve partners may not have space for a player who doesn’t want to play in that week’s tournament.

To Sign Up:

  1. Write your name and phone number on the sign-up sheet for the day you intend to play.
  2. Indicate whether or not you are a resident of Norwalk (for the weekend lottery system).
  3. Indicate whether or not you will be playing in the weekly tournament.
  4. Indicate your preference for walking, riding, or either.

You don’t have to sign up on the Pairings sign-up sheet if you plan to form your own group, but you must play with another Association member to participate in tournaments. However, check your Member Handbook; some tournaments must be paired by the tournament committee and you may not form your own group.

A pairings committee member will group the foursomes and assign a captain. Every effort will be made to put riders with riders and walkers with walkers; however, based on the preferences, this is not always possible. Sometimes, a member has indicated, “ride” on the sign-up sheet, and there is not another rider available to play. When you are called to be captain, find out which players are riders and walkers. As captain, it is your responsibility to go to the course, purchase the tee time, and call the other players in your group to give the time.

Purchasing Tee Times
Tee times for weekday play, excluding holidays, can be purchased a week in advance. It is best to get to the cashier’s window early in the morning to get the best choice of times. Weekend tee times are more complicated. During the normal season, weekend tee times are sold by a weekly lottery system. Early and late season, when the threat of frost delay affect starting tee times, tee times can only be purchased the day of play.
