What is a Handicappers Membership?
It’s not scary!!! Our competitive membership is open to those ladies who wish to join our 10 – week league program. We play every Monday night at Grandview Golf Club. You are responsible to establish and update your handicap with the Nova Scotia Golf Association. (included in the fee) Each Monday 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 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 – SPOND 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.
Each game has a cap of 16-30 ladies. You may join a waitlist and we will contact you if space becomes available. We will look for other courses to ensure we can accommodate our waitlist. The above schedule was based on 2017 schedule. (subject to availability)
