(included in the fee) Each Tuesday evening the ladies will meet for a fun 9 hole competition where we will record the scores, earning points toward the year total. A rules session and closing banquet are also included. As a competitive member you are also invited to all the weekly games that our full season and game improvement members enjoy.

How does the scheduling of games work?

Once you become a member you will be added to our game data base. We use a scheduling tool – HappyTC that keeps everyone up to date as games and events are added. Members will see a schedule for the upcoming 2-3 weeks. Each week you will receive game invitations via email – simply let us know if you would like to play, 9 or 18 holes, and whether you will require a golf cart or request to play with someone. We encourage our members to play with a variety of ladies, with a variety of skills. There are limits to the number of ladies that can play the games as we are limited in the number of tee times we can get at the club. Therefore, you should only say yes if you are going to make the golf game. You can adjust your schedule up to 2 days in advance. After this time, we will create groups and email out your tee time and contacts for your playing partners. If you are unable to make it, you are responsible to let your playing partners know. You are expected to show up early for your tee time. A no-show fee of $20 will be charged if you fail to make your tee time and haven’t contacted anyone. You are expected to call the club on the day if you have a tee time and can’t make it.

Your playing partners are counting on you to show up and play in their group. Members should not rearrange groups to play with different players, or go out early. We don’t want to leave anyone alone on the first tee.

What is a typical weekly schedule?

Monday – Brightwood – 5:30pm

Most area courses remain open for play regardless of weather. However, a determination will be made two hours prior to start of lessons or tee times by Metro Ladies Golf to cancel or postpone. You will be notified via email or text. “No-Shows” may be subject to a fee.

I guess my most favourite week of 2020 will be November when The Masters returns! A little something to look forward to this week.Updated statement from Fred Ridley, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club:

"In collaboration with the leading organizations in golf, Augusta National Golf Club has identified November 9-15 as the intended dates to host the 2020 Masters Tournament.

While more details will be shared in the weeks and months to come, we, like all of you, will continue to focus on all mandated precautions and guidelines to fight against the Coronavirus.

Along the way, we hope the anticipation of staging the Masters Tournament in the fall brings a moment of joy to the Augusta community and all those who love the sport."

Thankful I can get outside to practice these days.
If you struggle with the Chip shot try these tips:
✅ open stance
✅ weight on front leg
✅ ball forward (for me off left heel)
✅ hands slightly behind ball at address
✅ soft hands
✅ stay loose
✅ think smooth tempo
❌ wear your painting PJ’s

Disappointed for the athletes, coaches and all involved in the postponement of the games, but understandable in these difficult times. Looking ahead our #golf team will be ready to compete in 2021! #coach #hopeyouarethere #naig2021 @hfxgov

The basement putting green is complete! Thanks @GolfSupplyHouse for the amazing turf and cups. Think I need flags? Practice made better with @CallawayGolf @odysseygolf #strokelab putters. Think I need a few posters @tommyjdunn @BruceCarroll11 to finish the studio? #golf

Those thinking about going to a public golf course and playing should stay away but donate a % of your green fee to keep the people that will be there when we all come back to play afloat. Private members, please pay your dues...same applies. We need golf to survive this period!

Thank you, Sara, for your good instruction…  Over the past couple of years, my game had regressed to a point where I wasn’t really enjoying the sport as much.  However, now I am striking the ball better…Thank you again.
