Ladies Tuesday Golf League. All Ladies are invited to participate in our Tuesday Ladies Golf League. You don’t have to be a member of the golf club, just join the Ladies club and you are in. We have great specials on green fees and a fun competition every week. The league is open to golfers of all abilities. The Ladies love to have a good time out on the golf course and then enjoy lunch following play. The season begins on Tuesday April 3rd with a Ladies Mixer Scramble – 9:00 AM shotgun start. Everyone is welcome to join us.

Ladies Wednesday Evening League. Season opening meeting Wednesday April 11th. 5:30 PM in the grill. We will have complimentary appetizers and wine specials available. If the weather is nice, we will have tee times available between 3:00 – 3:30 with a small competition – green fees specials as well. Last year we averaged between twenty and twenty-five ladies each Wednesday evening for our new league. We tee off between 2:40 and 4:00 PM. Casual, fun golf with food and beverages on the deck following play.  Everyone is welcome regardless of their ability.

Men’s Wednesday competition. Our Wednesday Men’s Competition is a small but enthusiastic group. We tend get a group of eight to sixteen players that come out and participate each Wednesday. Players tee off between 8:00 and 9:00 AM. Come out and join the fun. Each week is a different competition with a $5 entry fee.  David will help you find a game. We have players of all abilities.

Thursday Night Men’s League – League play starts April 12th with a scramble event.  We average between eighty and one hundred golfers who tee off between 2:00 and 5:40 PM. The nine-hole league is fun, competitive, and a great way to sneak in some golf in the middle of the week. Participants must be a member of the Men’s Club and have a current handicap. We have several teams looking for more members to play. Send David a note if you are interested.

Saturday Morning Competition – April 7th Masters Competition. Pick your favorite partner on Saturday morning and combine his score with your net score. I always consider the Masters the start of the golf season. I will are able to enjoy a good tournament.

Cinco De Mayo Tournament – Saturday May 5th we will have a special Cinco De Mayo tournament. The format will be a two-person scramble. Men, Ladies, or sixed teams are welcome. The $35 entry fee per person for members, $50 for non-members. Entry includes green fees, competition, lunch, and two drink tickets including the “World Famous” Meadowmeer Margarita Bar. Special competitions on the golf course and a lot of ways to win. The Tournament is open to the public but a current USGA GHIN handicap is required to play. We expect the tournament to fill up quickly so be sure to sign up soon. Call David in the golf shop to sign up your team – 206-842-2218. It will be a huge party with the famous Mexican Hat Dance competition to follow golf!

Spring membership promotion – We have a great Spring membership promotion. New members can save big dollars. The crew has the golf course in great shape and now is the time to get out and play. Please call David or send him an email for more information. You can also find information on the web site. Join now – fees go up starting May 1st.

Chipping on the practice putting green – Golfers can now chip on the putting green located next to the first tee. This is being done on a trial basis. Chipping is limited to low shots and preferably a minimal number of attempts to preserve the condition of the grass surrounding the practice putting green. We also ask that golfers chip away from the parking lot and give priority to other golfers who might be putting. We hope this is an opportunity for all golfers to practice a few chips prior to playing the course. Extended practice should be conducted at the practice area north of the club house.

Aerification Schedule – Weather permitting, the greens crew plans on Aerifiying the greens on April 16th & 17th.  Please call the golf shop for more information.

Pro’s Tip – Make sure to plan your practice. Rather then head to the range just to hit golf balls. Arrive there with a plan. Perhaps you can work on your balance.
