2017 Ladies League Information

2018 Ladies League Information

ALL LADIES ARE WELCOME! 

The 2018 Ladies League will begin Monday, May 7th!

This year’s ladies league is scheduled to start on Monday, May 7th. The league fee will remain the same at $475 (Making each league member an Associate Member of the Club) and $200 if you are a Full Member (Unlimited, Weekday, or Twilight).  This fee also includes your end of season banquet and league gifts.  Being an Associate Member of the club gives you reduced greens fees outside of your league night, invitations to all of our Member Only Events with the exception of the Club Championship and Stroke Play Championship.  

The deadline to register will be Tuesday, May 1st

The ladies league will be a Tee Timed event each week with tee times starting at 4:30PM. Ladies will have the opportunity to hit range balls at the driving range before each league night where a shuttle will take you back and forth.

Tee Times can be made by calling the Golf Shop to book tee times for NO MORE than 1 week in advance.  The Ladies League Starter will have the following weeks tee sheet with him on the 1st tee to schedule tee times if necessary.   

The fee includes your weekly league green fee/cart/range balls as well as the end of the season banquet and league gift. There will be weekly prizes. The league will consist of 15 potential rounds. The last week of league, August 13th will be a 5:30PM Shotgun followed by the league banquet that evening.  Each league night will consist of Gross & Net winners.  Prizes and results will be updated on the Ladies League Website that will be provided after the league season gets started. 

Each League Night will be Individual Stroke Play with “Gross” and “Net” scoring. There will be a TRIPLE BOGEY MAX score enforced. If you are forced to pick up at TRIPLE BOGEY you CANNOT use your strokes on that hole towards your “NET” score. Therefore your Gross score would be Triple Bogey and your Net Score would be Triple Bogey. 

League nights that are canceled will not be made up and in the case where multiple nights are missed we will do our best in fairness to you and the club to make sure you get to play golf.  We will do our very best to get all rounds played.  We do understand that people are driving from work and places that may be further away and understand, we will do our best to keep you informed of weather – please do not call the golf shop asking if we are going to cancel or delay, we will send out an email when we feel necessary regarding the weather prior to teeing off.  If there is no contact then please plan to play.  As with all golf tournaments playing in the rain is part of the elements and if we feel there is no danger to you or the course we will plan on playing through. 

Based on feedback at the end of last season we will be doing a couple of “Pre-season” events to kick off the season.  1st of which will be a Ladies League Guest Night.  Wednesday, April 25th you are invited to come out with a guest to play – there is no fee for the golf.  The idea behind this is for you all to invite someone you think might be interested in the league or “on the fence” and give them an opportunity to meet the staff, see the course and get familiar with the property.  We did this last season and only had 3 ladies show up.  As much as we all want the league to grow, we need your help in bringing out ladies and the fact that it’s FREE everyone should be able to bring at least 1 person with them.  These guests DO NOT have to join the league but we are hoping opportunities like this will help persuade ladies to join or play here more often.  We do not offer any sort of opportunity like this for any other group on this property. 

The 2nd “Pre-season” event will be a Ladies League Clinic on Tuesday, May 1st.  This clinic will be from 6:00PM-7:30PM.  We will use this night as an opportunity to tune up your swings, short game or some other area of your golf game prior to the season getting started on May 7th.  Again there is no charge for this clinic to you but in order to participate you must be registered for the Ladies League. 

This year’s ladies league is scheduled to start on Monday, May 7th. The league fee will be moved to $475 (Making each league member an Associate Member of the Club) and $200 if you are a Full Member (Unlimited, Weekday, or Twilight).  This fee also includes your end of season banquet and league gifts.  Being an Associate Member of the club gives you reduced greens fees outside of your league night, invitations to all of our Member Only Events with the exception of the Club Championship and Stroke Play Championship.

The ladies league will be a Tee Timed event each week with tee times starting at 4:30PM. Ladies will have the opportunity to hit range balls at the driving range before each league night where a shuttle will take you back and forth.  Tee times can only be made by league participants no other golfers will have access to this tee sheet.  Tee times can be made on the first tee with one of the golf professionals doing the starting but please be aware that availability will be based on what is not already booked. 

The fee includes your weekly league green fee/cart/range balls as well as the end of the season banquet and league gift. The weekly $5.00 prize fee is built into the league fee instead of paying $5 cash each week of league. With the weekly prize fee included it will make the payout the same for Gross and Net winners for the year. The league will consist of 15 potential rounds. The last week of league, August 13th will be a 5:30PM Shotgun followed by the league banquet that evening.  Each league night will consist of Gross & Net winners with prizes being pre-determined for each night based on the total number of league members.  An email with results will be emailed out by the Friday after play. 

Each League Night will be Individual Stroke Play with “Gross” and “Net” scoring. There will be a TRIPLE BOGEY MAX score enforced. If you are forced to pick up at TRIPLE BOGEY you CANNOT use your strokes on that hole towards your “NET” score. Therefore your Gross score would be Triple Bogey and your Net Score would be Triple Bogey.
