Ladies League Information
WELCOME to new and returning Lady Members of Elbow Springs! For those who missed Wednesday night’s meeting here is a synopsis of what will be taking place this season. League play begins the week of May 2 and wraps up the week of September 12. Event sign up will be on-line and via the Elbow Springs App.
1. $50 fee.
We have reinstated the small fee to help offset the costs of running the Ladies League. This fee will be used for:
· Subsidizing the cost of the Ladies Wind up scheduled for September 20
· Prize money for the Tuesday Day Ladies and Thursday 9 & Dine games for those who wish to participate (only those who have signed up will be eligible to win)
· Subsidizing league play for those interested in: CHAMPS, Interclub, or Match Play
Your fee can be made by cheque made out to the “Elbow Springs Ladies Section” and dropped into the secure locked box in the Ladies Locker Room. You may also authorize us to charge your account and nothing further is required. Please email Marilyn Sutton email@example.com to arrange this.
2. Tuesday Day Ladies
Welcome Ladies to another golf season at Elbow Springs. My name is Marion Kruschell. I look forward to being in charge of the Tuesday Day Ladies this year. I am planning to organize some very simple games that will encourage a fun round of golf. Participation is optional. But there will be prizes for those who do join in. An email will be sent out every Monday explaining the game and the instructions for calculating the points. Please turn your cards in at the end of the round. If we have a tie, there will be a draw to determine the winner. The prizes will consist of $10 credits in the pro shop and will be applied directly into your account.
I am planning to organize some social time for anyone interested in staying after their round of golf. This will consist of coffee and cookies in the restaurant or on the patio. Everyone is welcome to attend and can drop in after their round of golf. I know I have met so many wonderful ladies to play golf with and whether you have been with the club for a long time or short time, we look forward to getting out on the course with you and getting to know you.

CHAMPS stands for Calgary Hospitality and Match Play Section. It consists of fun & minimally competitive matches among other courses in our section. Four players represent each course- two A players and two B players. A players have a 0-20.1 handicap and B players have a 20.2-35.2 handicap.
This season we will have 5 HOME matches @Elbow Springs, and 4 AWAY matches @Turner Valley, Shaganappi, Redwood Meadows & Scirocco. All matches are played on Mondays, except for Scirocco on a Tuesday. CHAMPS matches begin 06/06 and continue until 08/22. There will be a windup @Inglewood on 09/15.
Tee times are always in the morning, with lunch to follow. There is no charge to play CHAMPS matches, both home and away. The only charge would be for a power/pull cart (if needed), lunch and the windup at the end of season.
Sign-up sheets will be both posted by a google doc spreadsheet and on the corkboard in/near the Ladies locker room. Electronic sign up can be done by the following link

Players are encouraged to stay for lunch, snacks or drinks and are responsible to pay their own way.
