Leagues are where we meet and play!

Our evening leagues include beginner, intermediate and advanced to be inclusive to all members.  We believe we can improve integrating new members into our organization with volunteers in our leagues to meet, play and assist the new member with her assimilation into our evening league.  The ladies 18 holes will remain for intermediate/advanced players.  Secondly, substitutes will have the option to be universal with all evening leagues, if they elect to play other courses.   The benefit would be two fold, the extension of friendship & play, and filling  “cancellation” openings of evening leagues.  New to our leagues..... check them out here.  Check out our league policies here.  Our leagues start the week of April 13th and end the week of September 28th.  Sign up online here.
