On May 24th, RE/MAX Property Pros sponsored a gift to all members of the Eagle River Ladies Golf League of a 50th Anniversary Hat Clip with a commemorative marker! The hat clips were a welcome surprise to our ladies at the Spring Meeting.
We welcomed 41 members; many were returning members and we had several newcomers this year – and there is still time to join!
This year, when a member joins, their membership fee includes the additional games of Chip-In and Closest to the Pin, which are paid out weekly to the winners. The Shoot Out hole is also the closest to the pin. Each time a player lands on the appropriate green, they get one shot at the end of season event. The player closest to the pin is entered twice for that week. The payout comes at the end of season for those placing in the Shoot Out.
New games introduced in 2021 included the Horse Race at the end of the season with a Win, Place and Show payout. This game was a HUGE success last year! Another new game was the Ringer, which ran all season. Each player paid $5 to enter and records their score at the start. Each week, if they improve on any hole, that replaces the previous score posted for that hole. We are continuing these fun competitions again this year.
2022 Tee Times: The 18 hole players begin with tee times at 1:00 pm. The 9 hole players begin at 3:00 pm. and the Twi-Lite group begins at 5:00 pm, which allows those ladies still working to have a little fun with friends while playing golf after work.
New members are always welcome!
