Women’s Golf Championship Tourney

The Women’s Golf Club will hold the Club Championship Tournament on June 9, 11 and 16. It is a major tournament that will determine an overall gross winner, who will receive either a medallion or a diamond. The winner of each flight will receive a medallion or a diamond set on a previously won medallion. There also will be prizes paid for the 2nd and 3rd place winners in each flight. If enough people sign up, a 4th place in each flight will be awarded.

A luncheon and awards ceremony will be held following the final match on June 16. The signup sheet and flyer are posted in the Golf Pro Shop. Participants must complete six sanctioned club events in the previous six months to be eligible to play. The deadline for signups and payment is June 1.
