Ladies’ League Golf Season
Hello Ladies…The 2020 Golf Season will be here soon. We hope many of you will join us for a fun season of golf and socializing. Even if you’ve never been a part of Ladies League, we’d love for you to come and spend your Thursdays this summer with us. We are always looking for more lady golfers regardless of your skill level. It’s a great time to get together with old friends and make new friends as well. If you know of anyone who might be interested in joining us, please encourage them to give it a try.
Come and Play…If league isn’t something you’re comfortable with, you are always welcome to make a tee time to golf on Thursday afternoons and join us for food, a drink or play another nine.
Ladies League…League play is available for those who want a little competition. Our goal is to make league play as fun and stress free as possible. Our league’s format is team play. In the past, each team had 6-7 members depending on how many ladies sign up for league. The team’s score is calculated by taking the top three net rounds each week. This format allows golfers of all skill levels to play and contribute. One nine each week is closed for league members starting at 3:00. You sign up with league members that you want to play with and at the time that works for you. Even if you don’t have a group to sign up with, please feel free to sign up with another group. We promise we will all be very welcoming.
Handicaps…All league golfers are required to have an established handicap. The seasonal cost for this computerized service is $25. This must be paid each year to maintain your handicap. If you do not have a current handicap, you are encouraged to complete a minimum of 5- 18 hole rounds prior to the start of league play. These rounds can be played on any golf course, so keep track of your scores this winter if you’re somewhere warm!
See Aaron Kleinschmidt, Albany Golf Club’s general manager, if you have any questions.
Getting Started…League Play will begin with a team scramble on May 7th. This is a great way for you to meet and get to know your team members. The final day to sign up for Ladies’ League will be April 15th. This will give us time to set up the teams as fairly as
possible. League dues are $20.00 and must be paid prior to the first night of league play (May 7th). The dates of this year’s league play and the payment form for everything is included with this letter.
There is no Spring Dinner, so you will need to send your registration form and money to the golf course at this address before April 15th:
Albany Golf Course P.O. Box 338 Albany, MN 56307
Fun Stuff…There are a number of activities that members can participate in: Par & Birdie boards, win golf balls for the low net score in each flight, blind bogey ($10 additional fee you can pay on the first night), a Play of the Day each week, and the Rally for the Cause scramble event in July.
Enjoy the rest of your winter and hope to see you at the Albany Golf Course on Thursdays.!
