Do you have league play for men and women and can anyone participate?
Yes, we have many leagues for men and women in both areas of golf and tennis. ONLY FULL ATHLETIC AND SECONDARY MEMBERS MAY PARTICIPATE IN LEAGUE PLAY. The golf leagues meet both evenings, to accomodate those that are working during the day, and mornings or early afternoons. Please refer to our golf and tennis pages to find the days and times these leagues meet. The fee for the women's golf league is $25 for the season and the women sign up to play on a week to week basis, as available. The pro sets up the groups to play every week. The men's league operates on a partner basis for the entire season. If you or your partner are unable to play one week, it is your responsibility to find an alternate to play in your place for that week. For men's league fees, contact the pro at the club and he will also try to assist you in finding a partner if you are new to the club or league.
