New Member Information
IRONWOOD MENS GOLF ASSOCIATION (I.M.G.A.)
Welcome: the Ironwood Men's Golf Association is happy to welcome you as a new member.
To help you feel at home and comfortable with our routine, we offer the following orientation.
MEN’S PLAY DAY: Tuesday every week. There is a morning and afternoon start. You may choose whichever fits your schedule best that week. The start times will vary with the seasons..
SIGN‐UP: Sign‐up for league play on Chelsea system at http://ironoaks.chelseareservations.com/ using “event request”. You may sign up anytime in the two week period before the play day, but you must sign up no later than noon Friday preceding the Tuesday playday. The Chelsea system is available 24 hours a day. You must contact the ProShop to be entered into Chelsea and to get your login and password. More detailed information on Chelsea and how to use the system is in the Members Handbook (click here to view handbook).
CANCELLATIONS: How you cancel golf, depends on when you cancel golf. Until Friday noon prior to the play date go online (http://ironoaks.chelseareservations.com/) under “event request” and cancel your reservation using your confirmation number. If you must cancel after noon Friday, call the pro shop (895‐0617, ext 7).
ADD‐ONS: If you did not call Chelsea before Friday noon, you can call the Ironwood Pro Shop but you must do so BEFORE Sunday noon. After that time there are no additions to the Tuesday event.
PAIRINGS: Pairings will be posted on the bulletin board outside the pro shop and on the IMGA website (www.iwmensgolf.com ).
PLAY DAY: Arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled tee time to check in at the pro shop, arrange your riding order and, if necessary, pay your green fees. This is also a good time to check the bulletin board for any notices of special tournaments/events.
WINNERS: Winnings will be in the form of Chits posted to your credit book. The pro shop staff will keep track of your winnings which you may spend at any time at either the Ironwood or Oakwood Pro Shop. The majority of league games are flighted so you will be competing for prizes against players of your same golfing ability. Prize lists will be posted on the bulletin board and on the IMGA website.
RECORDING SCORES: On league day the Handicap Chairman enters scores on the computer after the scoring committee has verified the accuracy of the cards and determined the prizes for the day. YOU are responsible for recording all other scores whenever you play, whether at Ironwood or “Away”. This will ensure that your handicap is accurate for your level of play.
WHAT YOUR IMGA MEMBERSHIP DUES INCLUDE: Your dues include payment for weekly prize money, hole‐in‐one insurance, entry into the major tournaments, and fees for AGA. IMGA is an officially recognized league of the Arizona Golf Association, the state organization responsible for assuring that you have a recognized handicap.
SPECIAL EVENTS: IMGA has 2 major tournaments each year ‐ the Ironwood Cup (a three‐week cumulative Net score tournament), and the Club Championship (a three‐week cumulative Gross score tournament). In addition, there is an annual Member/Guest, Member/Member and Home & Home events with the other Sun Lakes men’s leagues. Sign up sheets for these events will be posted on the website and in the computer room.
