Three Rivers Women’s 18-Hole Golf Club is a group of women who golf regularly on Tuesday mornings, beginning with the last Tuesday in March and continuing through October. We plan fun yet competitive, sometimes individual, sometimes team, golf outings. Our members represent a variety of golfing skills. We play the game according to the rules of golf, but an enjoyable experience is our main objective. Days of play are Tuesdays, beginning in 2019 with a Chapman format event on Tuesday, March 26, and concluding with a scramble on October 29.
One of the highlights of our year is sponsoring the Heritage Bank Women’s Scramble. With the help of Three Rivers Golf Course, we are able to put on a highly popular women’s tournament. A significant part of the sponsor money raised for this tournament has been given to local charities for the past several years.
Other activities offered are the Birdie Board, the chip-in pot, the Ec Board competition, the Summer Tournament, and the Club Championship.
Our members represent all skill levels, and new members are especially welcome. The club’s goals are to promote interest in golf among women and to help women develop a keener knowledge of the rules and etiquette of the game. We like to meet new people and play golf regularly.
Unless otherwise noted, the entry fee for each competition is $2. There is also an optional chip-in pot ($0.50). Players are asked to signed in by 8:10 a.m. Tee groups and times are drawn out of a hat at 8:15 a.m.
Meetings are held in the Scottie Dog Café (above the Three Rivers Pro Shop), usually on the second Tuesday of each month at 8:00 a.m., with the exceptions of this year’s first meeting on April 9th, when the meeting will be at 7:30 a.m., and the July and August meetings, which will be on the first Tuesday of those months due to tournament scheduling.
Membership fee for 2019 is $60, which includes a $36 annual GHIN fee (for establishing and maintaining a USGA golfing handicap). Members who already have a GHIN membership through another club may pay just the $24 club dues. There is also a $5 optional annual fee for the Hole-in-One fund.
