We offer lady members and non-members the chance to play 18 holes at prime times on Saturdays. Ladies Club is played on Saturdays with a shotgun start at 8am. You can join our Ladies Club for a period of one year while not being a member. This is a great way for you to get a feel for what membership is all about without incurring the full expense. Our staff organizes an event each week so you have a chance to win prizes. Included with your Ladies Club membership is a WSGA handicap and your entry fees for all Saturday morning events plus our yearly Ringer. First Ladies championship and Gold Coat are not included in the Ladies Club package.
There is a different event each week, and the event is included in the yearly dues of $60/$90.
First Ladies’ Championship:
First Ladies’ Championship is an individual match play event open to members only.The format is to subtract the lower person’s handicap from the other person’s score. The person with the lowest handicap now plays at a 0 handicap; The other plays to 90% of their remaining handicap. Matches will have the last tee time on play days. Again, this event is only open to MLCC members.
Ringer is a flighted, year long event in which you can post a maximum of one score per week on play days only. (Sunday events or any other time you play cannot be used). At the end of the year, you will have the best score you shot on each hole. On your first play day, you will post your score for each hole in the blue Ringer book. On all subsequent days you will change the score on any hole where you had a lower score on. This fee is also covered in your yearly dues.
Gold Coat Championship:
Gold Coat is a two person team match play event. You pick your own partner, and the entry fee is $20.00. Seedings will be done using last years results, and first matches will be played in late May. Members Only.
It takes at least 5 scores to establish and have a WSGA handicap. It is your responsibility to post and adjust every 18 hole round you play, whether it be at MLCC or another golf course. If you do not have at least 3 scores posted by May 27 you will not be allowed to play in any events until this has occurred.
Pairings are made the day before play. No need to call for a tee time due to all starting at 8am. There is no switching of pairings on the day of the event unless done by the pro shop. Please call at least 24 hours in advance to cancel.
Slow Play: Nothing aggravates a person more than playing behind a group that is playing slow. Below is listed some tips on how to avoid slow play.
- Forget about honors except on par 3’s and in match play.
- Go to your ball if you are not in the way of a person hitting.
- Drop a person at their ball when driving a cart & go to yours.
- Park your cart on the side of green closest to the next tee.
- Examine your putt before it is your turn, so you are ready to play.
- Putt continuously if you’re not in someone else’s line.
- Mark the score at the next tee box or thereafter when time allows.
- One practice swing is all you should need. Instead of multiple practice swings, spend more time setting up to the ball.
- Slow players and people normally arriving late will get the last tee time.
- Habitual slow players will be warned by Mark. If their speed of play does not improve, that person will not be allowed to play in any events for a period of 2 weeks.
