. don't take golf too seriously, just want to play, have fun, enjoy the weather, and meet new friends
Our goal is to get new golfers out onto the course. We try to provide a relaxed environment for those new to the game to get out onto the course and discover the enjoyment that is golf.
What we are not is a teaching organization.
We leave formal instruction to the professionals. If you have never played before and are looking to try golf for the first time, please look at taking a lesson or two before attempting to attend one of our events. There will be information in our "Discussions" section regarding formal and low-cost lessons.
That much said many of us love to help, but take the advice with a grain of salt.
We generally don't lend out equipment, but some members may be able to lend you some gear if you check with them.
Where We Play
We play various 9- and 18-hole courses around the Winnipeg Area.
Sometimes we will plan on getting together after the round for a meal or a drink. This is optional, so don't feel obligated to stick around if your plans do not permit it.
We are also open to suggestions for playing various courses in the Winnipeg Area. If there is a course you would like to play, let one of the event organizers know and we will look to getting it on the calendar.
Rules and Pace of Play
When you attend a golf event, you are expected to know the basic rules of golf, golf etiquette and pace of play. Information on these topics can be found through USGA.org, as well as in our Discussion forum. We do not expect you to know them all, but you should have a basic understanding of these topics before you step out onto the course.
ATTENDANCE and RSVPs:
When you receive notifications of scheduled meetups,it is not necessary to reply "No" if you are not attending an event.You have the option to click on "Yes" or "No," but you don't have to; you can simply delete the email without replying. Of course, if you RSVP "yes" then your plans change, you must update your RSVP to "no."
Do not RSVP for a meetup if there's a chance that you might have to cancel at the last minute. It's better for you to RSVP at the last minute than to cancel at the last minute.
* The first no-show will be given a warning. A second no-show will result in the removal from our group.
* Last-minute cancellations are frowned upon. A last-minute cancel is if you cancel your RSVP after the RSVP deadline or after an Organizer/Event Host has posted the group assignments, which might be a day or two before the RSVP deadline.
* A combination of a no-show and last-minute cancellation will also result in the removal from our group.
* Last-minute cancellations will be accepted for our "regular" members who have a good attendance record--until it starts to become a habit.
Thank you for observing and respecting the attendance policy.
