Highlands Ladies Golf Association
The Highlands Ladies Golf Association (LGA) invites all lady golf members of The Golf Club at the Highlands to join us. Whether you are a beginner, casual, or serious golfer, there is a place for you.
Our mission is to promote golf and fellowship among the lady golfers at The Highlands. Our season runs from March through October.
WHO CAN JOIN:
The LGA is open to any lady sixteen (16) years of age or older who is a member of The Golf Club at The Highlands.
We play on Thursday mornings (shotgun tee times) and on Saturday mornings (tee times.) We typically throw in $5.00 towards the game we are playing, low putts (front and back) and closest to the pins. It is not obligatory to participate in the games, but most ladies really enjoy them. We have a team game at least once a month. The games are typically net and/or gross, change weekly, and are not always skill based. New this year will be a Tuesday night Nine and Dine. We will tee off at approximately 5:30. We hope that this will give our working members another opportunity to participate.
Annual dues for 2017 are $50. Members may join the Hole in One club for $10. Dues are due at the fall meeting in November or before participating in first LGA event.
Handicaps can be established through the golf club at $40 per person.
We also maintain a Birdie Board to keep track of birdies throughout the year and a Ringer Board to see how low we can get our score throughout the year. There are no awards for birdies, but we do award low ringer scores in four flights.
We enjoy several fun events throughout the year.
The LGA hosts a Sadie Hawkins event each July in which each member asks a member of the Men’s Golf Association (MGA) to partner with her in a two-person team 18 hole tournament. We have a pot luck dinner the night before, breakfast on the pavilion, the tournament, and lunch afterwards.
We divide the membership into two teams ala Ryder Cup. We play team matches on Saturday and individual matches on Sunday. And of course, there is lunch.
Each member chooses another member as a partner and plays 9-hole matches against other teams in their flight to determine the flight winners. Winners of each flight then vie for the overall champion.
We participate in the Club’s Ladies Member-Member Tournament. We also work together with the club to provide a memorable themed Member-Guest event in September.
Many of the LGA members also participate in other local golf associations: The Richmond Women’s Golf Association (RWGA) and The City Women’s Golf Association (CWGA). It is a wonderful way to meet other lady golfers in the area.
The ladies’ locker room is a great source of information. Current officers, tournament schedules, play day schedules, up-coming events, our Constitution and Bylaws, membership forms, and area events are all posted.
If you are interested in speaking to one of the officers, please just ask the pro shop for our numbers and/or email addresses. One of us will be in touch with you.
