Making the game of golf more accessible and welcoming to women.

Handicappers League 2019

Donna Bonner – 2018 Club Champion

Introducing our 2019 Handicappers League!

In 2017 Metro Ladies launched the “Competitive League” for those ladies looking to learn and play by the rules of golf. The group meets weekly and posts scores for the various league events. We have also hosted club championships and fun scrambles that mirror activities at traditional golf clubs. In 2018 the members of the league wanted to be more inclusive and invite other ladies to join their Tuesday night golf game and social and they felt “competitive” was not a term that would describe the atmosphere of comradery and fun. The Handicappers League is a way to track your progress over the season and have fun learning and playing by the rules.

Welcoming….fun…friendships…supportive…….fireball…happy….inclusive….informative….sambuca….friendly….educational…..sociable……entertaining…. enjoyable…laughs…encouraging…..so much fun!!…peach schnapps….challenging……fun….. the most non-competitive “competitive” league I have been in. Ladies Competitive League ladies use to describe the league.    The ladies decided, with Sara Wilson’s blessing, to change the name of the League.   So, the League was given a new name, the Handicappers.  We feel the name is more representative of who we are.

Now on to the “golf” part of the League.  I hope you are thinking; what is the League all about?  Should I join? 

There is one commitment you must make to be a member of the League: to establish and maintain a handicap.   This does mean following the rules, keeping accurate scores and entering in the Golf Canada website.  No worries, you will be supported throughout the season starting with a rules session with Sara.  It is all a learning process and we learn the rules together.
Your Metro Ladies fees include:

  • the cost of being a member of Golf Canada
  • Rules session and rule book
  • Access to all regular Metro Ladies games offered
  • One swing clinic and One short game clinic
The Handicappers include a wide range of skill levels, so no need to feel you are not a good enough golfer.  Having a handicap will entitle you to play in ladies tournaments like annual Ladies Field Days held by various golf courses. 

Since its inception in 2017, about 16 ladies play 9 holes every Tuesday night mostly at the Grandview Golf Club.  Ten of the games are included in the Handicappers 10 week tournament.  Scores are kept and tabulated for gross and net scores.  There are awards for various categories at the end of the season.  Last year we introduced a fun scramble at the end of our season. 

Throughout the season, we have a blast while playing golf.  Photos are taken and posted, support given for both great and disappointing shots all while we eat and drink to golf and friendships after each game.  We hope you will consider joining us for the 2019 season.

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

What shot do you struggle with? What can I help you with?

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!
