Ladies League at Victoria Park Valley Golf Club in Guelph

Ladies League has concluded for the 2016 season. Many thanks to all participants for a successful year! Please check back for 2017 information.

Looking ahead to 2017…

The Ladies League season begins with a registration Night and a delicious dinner (usually the last Wednesday of April), and there will be a door prize and a 50/50 draw as well. Our registration fee for 2017 has yet to be determined, but it was $45 in 2016.

This fee supports your registration gift, tournament entry fee, the scoring system and your closing banquet dinner and door prize. Individual prizes (year end and mid-year), draw prizes and activities throughout the golf season rely upon the proceeds of the 50/50 draw.

For any questions regarding Ladies League, please contact Louise DeCorso louise@victoriaparkgolf.com

Each Wednesday, one ‘9’ will open at 2:30 pm and run exclusively to 6:00 pm for our ladies league. You are welcome to book a tee off time for your group if you wish to play a different nine.

Starting before or after the reserved times or playing a different nine will require a booked tee-time. If you wish to play 18 holes, please book a tee-time as well. If you play 18 holes, you must use your first 9 for Ladies League scoring. You cannot record pars, birdies or score from your second 9.

Tee- times can be booked up to one week in advance by calling the Golf Shop at (519) 821-1441. If your group consists of only 2 or 3 golfers, our starter will help you find a foursome. You will meet more of the ladies and this will also help with pace of play.

We encourage golfers to use the Canadian Ladies Golf Association rules of etiquette and play; recognizing that beginning golfers may wish to consider the rules as guidelines and experienced golfers should adhere to the golf rules more exactly. Rules of etiquette and dress code will be expected of all golfers regardless of experience.

If you are a new golfer (or having a bad round), it is OK to pick up your ball after enough shots (usually around double par). You can then putt or just go to the next hole. Enjoyment of the game and steady improvement are important goals as you play golf.

Record Keeping: You are responsible for totalling your score and marking pars, birdies etc. in the proper places. After each 9-hole round on Wednesday League Day, your completed

scorecard must be handed in to the Pro Shop. Please make sure your full name and total score is on the scorecard. Birdies, Eagles and Hole-in-ones should be recorded on the “Birdie Tree” located in the locker room downstairs. Please tell the person who takes your scorecard—and anyone else you wish to brag to—if you got a hole in one.

Returning for the 2016 season is the PAR binder. The objective is to par as many different holes as you can over the season. Each time you par a different hole, you will record your par on the chart in the club house. How many of us can par all 27 this season? There is no need to record birdies or eagles in the par binder, as no credit is given for them there. Remember if you play 18 holes during Wednesday League Golf, you can only record stats for the first 9 holes.

Victoria Park Valley provides reasonably priced, delicious dinners, which will be served every Wednesday following or preceding your golf game. Sometimes, inclement weather may cause us to cancel the planned dinner (if too many golfers choose not to play). In that case, there will always be a grill special available for those ladies who brave the elements! Dinners will vary, and will be priced accordingly. 50/50 and theme day draws will be made at 8:00 pm.

Our Closing Awards Dinner will be held on Wednesday, October 5th. We plan to socialize from 5:00 to 6:00 pm and dinner will be served at 6:10 pm. After our members have signed up, and if there are places available, guests will be invited to join us (first come, first serve basis) by paying $25.00.
