    The 2024 BCL schedule is now online (see left side navigation bar). This season will run from May 25th - August 11th (including the playoffs). Coaches should begin communicating with their teams and pro-shops about the upcoming BCL season and schedule. Order your team shirts as soon as possible so you will have them for the start of the season. Here are some of the key facts for the season: 

Key Facts: 

  •   19 teams competing in BCL this summer. 
  •   Four divisions, three with 5 teams each and one with 4 teams 
  •  6 Regular Season Matches From May 25th - July 27th (3 home and 3 away) 
  •  8 Teams Make the Playoffs 
  •  Quarterfinals (August 3th) - Eight teams qualify for the Quarterfinals. 
  •  Semifinals (August 4th) - Four Teams - Winners of Quarterfinal Matches 
  •  Championship Weekend (August 10-12) - Two Teams - Winners of Semifinal Matches

 Arranging Matches: 

   The Host coach for each match should reach out to the Visiting coach on Monday the week of the match to let them know what time to arrive for their Saturday match and get an estimate of the number of players and coaches the visiting team will be bringing to the match. Discuss any special dress code (i.e. long pants) or other logistics. 

   Coach Contacts were previously included in the my email sent to each teamís Coach. Email me if you didnít get it. It will not be posted on the BCL website for security/privacy reasons. 

  Host team to provide lunch for all players and coaches. If the Visiting coach has not heard from the head coach by EOD on Tuesday the week of the match, the Visiting coach should reach out directly to the Host coach to facilitate coordination. Host coach/team is responsible for preparing score cards and scoring at the end of the match. 

Responsibility for  Reprting  Match Scores

  The winner of the match should scan a copy of the scoresheet to me at (marklbriggs@comcast.net) and Glynn Falcon at (glynnf@aol.com) no later than Sunday after each match (unless other arrangements are made between the coaches). Glynn will post the scoresheet and keep track of the divisional standings on our website at (www.baycitiesgolf.com). 

Playoff Eligibility: 

   The winner of each division based on W-L record for all six regular season matches will automatically qualify for the playoffs (tiebreaker is based on highest average points during the six regular season matches) 

   The remaining four playoff spots will be chosen based on overall W-L record out of all the remaining teams in the league (tiebreaker based on highest average points during the six regular season matches. 

   Playoff seeding will be based on overall W-L record for all six regular season matches for all teams that qualify for the playoffs. (tiebreaker based on average points per match scored in regular season matches). 

   Championship weekend - The team with the best W-L record during the regular season that qualifies for Championship weekend will chose to play first 18 hole match either home or away. 

BCL Logo Balls and Shirts: 

  If you have paid your dues, your 8 dozen BCL logo balls will be sent to your club before the start of the season and addressed to the BCL head coach you provided with your deliverables. You should get your team shirts ordered through your pro shop as soon possible to have them ready for the first match of the season. 

Coaches Meeting

  While we had hoped to hold a pre-season BCL coaches kick off meeting this year, we did not move fast enough to secure a venue so will not be able to pull it off this year. We will commit to hosing a coaches meeting for the 2025 BCL season and will start the planning for the event much earlier. 

  Good luck to all of the BCLJG clubs this summer! I will check back a week or so before the season starts. If there are any new rules or other information that needs to be shared with the coaches, they will be communicated at that time. Let me know if you have any questions. 

Best Regards,
