Westpark Women Golf Association
Visit the WWGA website for more information and to join.
The Thursday Westpark Women’s League is made up of women who like to play golf with other women. We play nine holes in the evening so members can get nine in after work; OR we play either 9 or 18 in the morning for those who have the time or are retired. We are a very social group and play a different tournament each week during our regular season of April – September. We are comprised of players from novice, to intermediate, to very good. We have FUN!
Each Thursday is designated a different “Tournament.” This means that each player has the opportunity to earn points which accumulate throughout the tournament season (April thru Sept.). Every player, regardless of handicap or level of play, will have the opportunity to win points. These points are accumulated throughout the year with recognition at the end of the year. By using handicaps, and using many different tournaments, equal opportunity is given to all players. Therefore, all players will have the opportunity to win points.
Part of your fee for the league is for maintenance of your USGA handicap on the computer in the Pro Shop. Once you have paid your fee, a member of the Pro Shop will assign you a Golf Handicap Information Network (GHIN) number. From that point on, you yourself will be responsible for entering all your 18- or 9-hole scores, regardless of what course you play, into the computer. A member of the Pro Shop will be happy to show you how to enter that information. It is important to note that all scores (the good, the bad, and the ugly) should be entered into the system to establish a fair and accurate handicap. You will have an official USGA handicap after you have entered a minimum of five scores. As a member of the league, you are strongly encouraged to establish an official handicap as soon as possible. Handicaps will be used later in the season to make earning points during tournament play possible for players of all capabilities.
We encourage all of members to either have a handicap or establish one as they are used in tournament scoring. Members post scores to Golf Handicap and Information Network (GHIN).
We are gearing up for our Spring 2017 season and encourage women of all levels to join our group. Our first 2017 organizational meeting is at Westpark on Thursday, March 16 at 6 pm. You can sign up then, meet our current members, and get more information.
