Higher handicap players often fare well as most of the competitions are based on net scores. the intent is to get to know each other, to play with different women, to improve our game and most importantly, to have fun. We include a variety of individual and team games, interspersed with Cup tournaments, and we have a weekly Toonie Pot (optional) for the competition of the day. Golf is usually followed by lunch in the Clubhouse and a chance to socialize and recap the mornings game. To view the 18 Hole Women’s Fixture Card, click here.
Interclub Matches are being planned for the year. Normally, the 18-hole Women play a series of games with other clubs on Vancouver Island. Teams usually consist of 8 players, chosen by draw from a posted sign-up sheet. Each interclub match consists of two rounds, one played at Salt Spring and one played at the other club. The format is usually match play. We prefer you sign up to play both home and away matches, but please sign as a spare if you are only available one day.
