2022 Ladies’ League Golf Season
Hello Ladies…The 2022 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. Let us know if we need to send this information out to someone new.
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 $30 for AGC members and $40 for non-members. This fee is set by MGA not the AGC. 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 us making the teams. These rounds can be played on any golf course, so keep track of your scores. 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 12th. 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 May 1st. This will give us time to set up the teams as fairly as possible. It’s very important that you sign up by May 1st.
This year Ladies’ League dues will be a total of $70 for AGC members ($30-handicap, $40-league play which includes: weekly golf balls for winning team members, the weekly ringer scores game and Blind Bogey and $80 for non-members. Play-of-the-Day is an added fun activity held each week. Closest to the Pin, Least Putts, Predict Your Score are just a few we’ve had in the past. The winner each week collects the $$. The cost is $12 for the entire season. The dates of this year’s league play and the payment form for everything is included with this letter.
There is no Spring Dinner prior to the scramble, so you will need to send your registration form and money to the golf course at this address before May 1st:
Albany Golf Course P.O. Box 338 Albany, MN 56307
Fun Stuff…The Rally for the Cause is scheduled for July 14. Lori Hanson, Mara Stroeing, and Karla Christen are taking the lead. A big THANK-YOU to them for volunteering!
