Sat., 4/20/13: Fremont Park 9-Hole Ladies Club

This is very exciting! We have 16 paid members and 5 others who will register on or by April 20th.


If any ladies are interested but haven't signed up yet, please let me know. You are very welcome to join. The annual membership fee is $99, which includes the NCGA membership and a $50 driving range card.


Because none of us has a handicap (yet), in order to see what everyone's abilities are, our first event will be a regular tournament with prizes given out for:


- the best overall score

- the lowest putt strokes

- closest-to-the-pin on hole #6

- closest-to-the-pin on hole #8

- the longest drive on hole #9

- the "most challenged" (a.k.a. the highest overall score)

- the most balls lost


We will have a scoring system, which I will explain in my email to you when I send out the notes from our first meeting.

Points for this first tournament are as follows:

- 2 points for playing (2 points each time you attend)

- best overall score:  10 points

- second best score:  5 points

- third best score:  2 points

- best putter/lowest putt strokes:  5 points

- second lowest putt strokes:  2 points

- closest-to-the-pin on hole #6:  5 points

- longest drive on hole #9:  5 points

To ensure that players of all skill levels have an equal opportunity to score points and win prizes, we will vary the games we play each month.  Upcoming tournaments include:

- 2-person scramble (both partners score equal points)

- Bingo, Bango, Bongo:

- best scores for certain holes (5 shortest holes, odd or even holes)

- 3-Club Tournament (2-person best ball or scramble)

- Pink Ball Tournament:

And a few more.  All these games will be fully explained in upcoming emails and before we tee off each time.

"Local rules" will apply at each tournament, and I will remind everyone what the "local rules" are each time.

Tournament fee:  $25.00portions of which will go toward the green fee, prizes and a kitty for our end-of-year celebration.

    This was such a fun event. I'd like to thank everyone for coming out for our very 1st tournament! I will email you guys your current points/standing. Congrats to the winners:

    - Best overall score: Michele V
    - Best putter (it was a tie): Elaine and Kelly
    - Closest-to-the pin, holes #6 & #8: Nikki & Katie
    - Longest drive: Meena
    - Most challenged: Leticia
    - Most lost balls: Teri

    At the request of the group, we will keep closest-to-the-pin for both holes and the longest drive contests for each tourament.

    If you haven't done so and you have your GHIN #, please enter your score as soon as you can. Alex told me after everyone left that we need to enter our score into the NCGA computer. As Katie mentioned, you can do this online at the NCGA website. If you just filled out an application and don't have your GHIN yet, I'll email you with it as soon as NCGA gives it to Fremont Park.

    Here's the site. Log in using your GHIN # and last name:

    Just FYI: the NCGA website allows you to post scores so you don't have to exclusively use the computers at each golf course.

      That's great news. Thanks, Katie! I can enter all the scorecards I've been saving since last summer in the comfort of my home while enjoying a glass of wine.

    Group1: Lucy, Lanie, Marcelina
    Group2: Katie, Kelly, Tiffany, Teri
    Group3: Peggy, Toni, Nikki, Meena

    See you all very soon!

    I just sent you guys a message about this Saturday, so please check your email.

    For those who have already paid their membership fee, don't forget to pick up your $50 driving range card when you first arrive so that you can get some balls to warm up with.

    If you haven't filled out an application yet, please arrive no later than 8:00 a.m. to do that. We will have a short meeting at 8:30 to go over the rules and such and tee off at 9:00 a.m. sharp.

    Great news, Ladies! It's only been a couple of weeks, but the 16 of us who've registered with NCGA already have our GHIN #s (Golf Handicap Index Number). I stopped by Fremont Park this afternoon to pick up our GHINs. I will send out an email later tonight to each of you with your #. The next time you're at a golf course, ask them where their NCGA kiosk/computer is and enter your score for that day and for any other days that you have your scorecard for.

    This is so exciting! We will all soon have a handicap. I am extremely proud of you guys. The Ladies Club members I've golfed with in the last couple of weeks are getting better and better, as well as learning proper golf etiquette and rules! AND you seem to be having a great time!

    We have 16 members and another 7 who plan to sign up between now and May. How awesome is that?!

      Matt from Fremont Park called today and gave me my GHIN#.

      April 4, 2013

    • Lucy

      I know. After Matt made the 3rd phone call, he realized it's best if I contacted you guys, LOL. Pruneridge is an NCGA course, so let's enter our scores into their computer after we finish next Wednesday. Also, bring your scorecard from the last time you golfed Fremont Park with you so that we could enter that in, as well.
