2011 MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION
2011 ANNUAL REGISTRATION FEE: $35.00 (Does not include AWGA Handicap Fee)
ANNUAL REGISTRATION FEE INCLUDES: Ladies League Perpetual Trophy/Plaque, Club Championship
Trophy, Food and Beverage contribution during Club Championship, Member/Guest Prize Contribution and
Player of Year Prize Fund.
TOURNAMENT ENTRY FEES: Ladies Golf League players will be responsible to pay green fees as
applicable during each tournament. In addition to the green fees charged by WSGC, each player will pay a
tournament fee of $12.00 per day of competition.
ENTRY FEES INCLUDES: The $12.00 tournament fee includes $8.00 prize fund, $2.00 end of year party,
$1.00 closest to the pin prize, and $1.00 shop gratuity/scoring fee. Must be paid in cash to the golf shop.
OPTIONAL SKINS GAME: During individual competitions, an optional skins game will be played. The
entry fee is $3.00. All payouts are made in cash, and the game is played for NET SKINS ONLY.
TOURNAMENT PAYOUT: The $8.00 prize fund will be distributed by the WSGC in the form of Golf Shop
Credit (Script) and will be held for each player in the golf shop. Approximately 1/6 of all players entering
each tournament will receive prizes. Golf Shop Credit can be used for merchandise purchases and special
orders within the golf shop. It cannot be used for green fees, future tournament fees, food and beverage,
lessons, club repair, or gift cards.
GREENS FEES: The golf shop staff will endeavor to minimize greens fees for all players during
tournaments. Each player should understand that reductions in greens fees are conditional and have been
established for Ladies Golf League events only and are not achievable during other times. May be paid to
the golf shop by cash, credit card, or check.
GOLF SHOP DISCOUNTS: Members of the Ladies Golf League will be given a discount of 10% for all non-
sale merchandise and special order purchases in the golf shop and all food and beverage purchases in
Mulligan’s Grill. Does not apply to greens fees, range balls, cart fees, beverage cart or snack shack.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR PRIZES: Each player participating in each tournament will receive points towards
the end of year prizes. Individual points will be awarded based on each player’s score against their
established handicap/projected score. The player that collects the most points throughout the calendar
year will be declared the Player of The Year, with a special recognition at the Ladies Golf League’s final
tournament of the year.
SIGN-UPS AND CANCELLATION POLICY: Deadline for each tournament sign-up is 5 PM the Wednesday
prior to each tournament. Entries after the deadline will be at the discretion of the golf shop staff based on
space availability. The Club Championship is a pre-pay event and must be paid at the time of registration.
There is a 24-hour cancellation policy in affect for all events. Players cancelling after the deadline may be
subject to future sign-up restrictions.
GROUPINGS AND TEE TIMES: In an effort to make sure players get an opportunity to play with other
members of the Ladies Golf League, the golf shop staff will randomly pair all players. Each player may
sign-up with one other member in which they would like to play for each tournament. All play will be in
groups of 4 players or less (Groups of Five are not permitted). Every effort will be made to accommodate
pairing requests based on the type of game being played, but the golf shop staff has the ultimate authority
to modify pairings. Players may also request special tee times within the time block established by the golf
shop staff for each event which will try to be accommodated.
TOURNAMENT FORMATS: In an effort to make each event enjoyable for all skill levels, each tournament
will have a different format for the prize fund. The registration form for each event will indicate the type of
event to be played (Individual or Team Event) for registration purposes. The actual format for prizes will be
disclosed the morning of each tournament by the golf shop staff. This format will be established by the
Ladies Golf League Board of Directors and the golf shop staff based on entries received. There will be two
types of individual tournaments – Individual Gross and Net (where a player plays golf keeping gross score)
and Individual competitions where each player plays their own ball, but scoring for the competition is done
by points, special format, or by using a special game structure like fairways hit, greens hit, or numbers of
putts used. Team Competitions will pair players of differing abilities to play in different formats such as
scrambles, alternate shots, or best-ball, quotas, etc. Players are awarded end of year points for all
competitions, but can only score bonus points during individual tournaments.
MAJOR TOURNAMENT: The Ladies Golf League will have one major tournament each year. The Club
Championship will be scheduled in November and will be a 2-day tournament. This event will require a
pre-payment of green fees and tournament fees.
SCHEDULE: The tournament schedule and formats are subject to modification by the golf shop staff to
accommodate tournaments and other conflicting events. Generally, the Ladies Golf League will play the
last Saturday of each month, or as otherwise adjusted for over-seeding schedule and holidays. See the
attached tournament schedule.
TEE TIMES: Tee times will be posted in the golf shop and distributed by e-mail to all players 2 days before
each tournament. Each player is responsible to be on-time for their time of starting. Players late for their
starting time will be assessed a 2-stroke penalty for being late. Ladies shall arrive early enough to register
in the golf shop, pay fees, and obtain the golf cart without delaying other players.
HANDICAPS: Each member of the Ladies Golf League will establish a league handicap during the playing
of events. Each player will establish a starting handicap based during their first two individual tournament
scores, which will be calculated as 90% of the players average score minus par of 72 for each round. After
establishment of a starting handicap, each player’s handicap will be adjusted during each individual
tournament based on their score, less their current handicap, compared to par of 72. For each net score
under par by more 3 strokes (69), the current handicap will be reduced by 1. For each net score over par
by more then 5 strokes (77), the current handicap will be increased by 2 strokes. Net scores between 3
under par and 5 over par will remain unchanged.
PLAYER OF YEAR POINTS: Each player participating in an individual competition will be awarded 20
points. Each player participating in a team competition will be awarded 25 points. In addition, players that
participate in individual tournaments can score 2 bonus points for each stroke they better a net score of 77
(TARGET SCORE). Example: A player in an individual competition with a 20 handicap scores a gross
score of 94. Tournament net score is 74 (94 minus 20 handicap) which betters the target score of 77 by 3
strokes. The player will be awarded 20 points for participating plus 6 bonus points. The player with the
most points at the end of the club championship will be Player of the Year winner. The top point leaders
will be awarded special prizes at the end of the year party.
