This is a friendly invitation to all the “Women of Whitevale” whether A, B or C members. Some of our newer members may not be aware that there is a group of around 20 like-minded, golf-loving, social individuals who sign up to play together on a Thursday morning. We tee off between 8:30 and 9:30 and we play a different “game” each week, using handicaps to keep a level playing field for all. We each play our own games every week except for our opening scramble (teams of 4), and our closing Thursday Cup competition in September when we play with a partner. However you do not need to commit to playing every week as sign up is done on a week by week basis. We accommodate requests for early or later tee off times so that people can work around their shifts, appointments, etc., and we try to shuffle the groups around so you get to play with different players.
To find out whether or not you would enjoy playing with the group, do come out to our Opening Day on Thursday, April 30 for a 9:00 am shotgun start. We recognize that most players will be decidedly rusty at this stage of the season so we traditionally open with our Gamblers’ Scramble, in which we draw cards to see who will be in our foursome and then roll the dice to see whose tee shot will be used on each hole. After that the format is that of a step-aside (aka drop out) scramble. Lady Luck therefore has more input into the eventual winners than any golfing prowess we may possess. (All will be explained on the big day.)
So, if you would like to join us for this fun event, please call the pro shop by Tuesday, April 28 to add your name to the list, and make sure you arrive before 8:00 am on Thursday, April 30, so that we can enjoy a coffee before we see what the cards foretell regarding the make up of each foursome. After the game we’ll have a casual lunch in our new Whitevale “palace” and talk about the plans for the season.
We look forward to seeing lots of Thursday Ladies out this year - the more the merrier!
