Pool Assignments and course assignments (subject to change until park systems approval – expected 12/31/22)

Note: As divisions fill up, we may move some divisions from Pool A to Pool B (same courses played) and from Pool D to Pool E (also same courses played) to balance out the number of players in each pool and allow for more players in popular divisions. Divisions with no one sign up will be dropped 2/1/2023. There is no minimum # of players in a division (one or two is OK-you will not be asked to move).
