    RUBY HILL - the 2016 Winner of the Woodward BCLJG'S Championship Trophy !!!!!



  We are honored to announce that the Bay Cities Junior Golf League's championship trophy is now named in honor of Chris Woodward!

          Chris Woodward and the Woodward BCLJG Championship Trophy (click)


  Chris was an active member, officer and director of Bay Cities for nearly 20 years. He tragically passed away while on a business trip. As an avid golfer, a walker, and a traditionalist to the core values which golf brings to daily life, Chris leaves a legacy of commitment and dedication to youth sports and especially to Bay Cities League of Junior Golfers. We are honored and proud to name the League's championship trophy after him.

======================================================================================================   Attention: Rules and Rule Changes

 For those you of you not in attendance at the annual bay cities coaches meeting, the following rule changes were announced.

 Boys and girls course rating equitability

 Since our competitions do not involve handicaps, we should do our best to make sure that both Boys and Girls are playing from  sets of tees with similar course ratings, so that one gender does not have an advantage over the other.

 "For the scoring team, play is from the Championship tees (usually “Blue” or “Black”) for the boys, and the girls shall play from a  forward tee as shall be designated by the host’s Club Professional in fairness and in equity. Typically, this will be the next forward  tee from the boy’s tee, provided that the difference in course rating between the two tees for boys and girls does not exceed one  stroke. If there is a significant difference in the course ratings between the Championship tees and the next forward tee, the Host  Club Professional will designate the appropriate tees to be played to minimize the rating difference. 

 Once a host club designates the teeing ground to be used, it cannot vary the tee selection from match to match, but must remain  consistent throughout the remainder of the season. Non-scoring players may use any teeing ground as designated by their  coaches.

 Scoring match eligibility-members vs. non-members

 In 2006, the League implemented the 4 non-member rule for competing in matches. This year we will implementing the following  change:

 Clubs have the option to play up to 5 non-members in a scoring match. As customary, all players in scoring matches need to be  noted as a member or non-member. We will see how this plays out this year and re-evaluate the change next season.

 Reporting match scores

 To enable more timing reporting this year, when reporting match results, the winning coach will be responsible for reporting the  results. The deadline is to report no later than Sunday at 6pm. See below the process for sending in scoring sheets

 Failure to report match results by the deadline could result in a forfeit.

 If some unforeseeable circumstance arises that precludes the winning team from reporting, please notify both Glynn Falcon, or Jeff Maxoutopoulis, prior to the deadline. In that instance, we would need the final  results of the match and would expect the scoring sheet to be sent in ASAP.

 Send scoring sheet to Glynn and cc Jeff.

 Scoring sheets should include all players who competed with associated scores.

 Scoring sheets need to be on the scoring sheet template located on the Bay Cities web site and renamed and labeled as follows.

 Winning team-score-losing team-score-date

i.e.; "SFGC24vLACC12 May31 2016.pdf"


 Final rosters should include all eligible players.

 See you on the first tee! ~ Glynn Falcon

Who we are:

        The Bay Cities League is the premier junior golf league in the nation. It consists of 28 private and semi-private golf clubs in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Ranging in location from Half Moon Bay and Olympic Club to the West, Napa Valley and Santa Rosa C. C. to the North, Crow Canyon and Oakhurst C.C. to the East, and Pasatiempo and Silver Creek Valley C.C. to the South, these clubs are all among the top ranked and most admired golf courses in California. At least four courses were designed by Alister MacKenzie (Meadow, Pasatiempo, Green Hills and Claremont), as well as Donald Ross (Peninsula) heritage.

        Our co-ed junior players range in ages from 7 through 21 (there is no lower age limit). Many of the juniors are the children and grand-children of club members, but most clubs encourage participation by non-member juniors living in the community, reaching out to those who would otherwise not have the opportunity to participate in such a junior golf program.

        Bay Cities junior players are young men and women who compete because of their love of the game, their desire to learn and improve their skills, and because they find truth and respect in good, fair competition. As they grow and develop, they comprise some of the top-ranked junior and amateur players in the country. Some go on to college level golf, and some have become stars on the PGA, LPGA, and other tours. All have gone on to enduring friendships with not only their teammates, but also with their playing opponents. Our juniors golfers add fresh and energetic enthusiasm to the game of golf and to their home clubs.

~ Glynn Falcon, president emeritus


     Bay Cities League was formed on April 5, 1967 by founders Captain Ed Chester, USCG Retired, Castlewood CC; William I. Clark, San Jose C. C ; Hal Rosenberg, Green Hills C.C.; Lloyd DeMartini, Green Hills CC; and Bill Fisher, Santa Rosa C.C.   It is a California non-profit corporation.
