Registration is by signing the sign-up sheets posted in the Men's locker room. Sheets for the next three games will be posted on an ongoing basis.  The draw coordinator will randomise the list of names, make any required adjustments for special accommodations, and enter the names into the league section of the booking system by noon the day before the game.
 
Senior League members will receive an automated email from the booking system giving them their actual tee times.  

Senior League members are expected to check in at least 30 minutes prior to their tee time with the registrar in the Men's locker room in order to pay their fee / collect their winnings, and be advised of any tee time adjustments.
 
If you forgot to sign up, or want to play at the last minute, contact the Pro Shop after noon the day before game day and you will be added on a first come first served basis if space is available.  If no spaces are available, you may come out in case we have a cancellation in which case you will be added.
 
If a Senior League member requires an early or late tee-off time, or has a special request (ie: to play with a specific person as part of the match play competition, or to play with a guest, for example), they will need to email the draw coordinator at MMSLDC@gmail.com 2 days in advance of the game.
 
Once a Senior League member receives their tee time via email and needs to cancel their game, they must call the Pro-Shop AND notify the draw coordinator at MMSLDC@gmail.com.
