Ladies Golf at the Island Country Club



ICC LADIES GOLF

SUMMER 2022


“Official” Ladies Golf begins on Tuesday, June 14, and we look forward to the fun of golfing together again this summer! Our intent is for each of us to work to improve our personal play, learn the new tee markers and the new golf rules, enjoy the stimulation of our lady friends, find something good about each shot we make and have lots of laughs together!


We have decided to collect a one-time fee of $20 to join Ladies Golf but will not be charging weekly for prize money. We will not be announcing winners or winning teams on Tuesdays but will instead post them on the Ladies Golf bulletin board the following day and submit them to the weekly ICC newsletter. We will do our best to adhere to this weekly schedule, but there could be some changes due to unexpected issues.  Please arrive for Tuesday golf by 8:30 so that we can be ready to tee off by 9:00!                                                                                                                                      


Opening Potluck Luncheon is June 14th! There is a sign-up sheet posted on the Ladies Golf board in the Pro Shop.

Closing Luncheon: (sign up in Pro Shop)


The Following are details about Ladies Golf:


Everyone is encouraged to keep their handicap updated or be working on establishing a GHIN handicap, as that is the only fair way to equalize winnings. There are many changes with our new tee markers and changes with scoring and the handicap system, plus our course has been rerated by the Maine State Golf Association. We will be offering workshops to help everyone understand the new GHIN handicap system.


A schedule has been developed with the goal of achieving an individual score almost every week. This will make it easier to be working on your handicap.


Each week we will explain the game before the start of play. You are encouraged to keep your individual score AND your putts each week when the game permits. Scorecards are to be returned before you leave the club on Tuesdays. Also, keep track of any chip-ins, as they will be acknowledged.


Thursday Putts: Everyone is welcome to join the “Putts” players on Thursdays where you keep your own golf score, and the only competition is your number of putts on each hole. Arrive by 8:45 and be ready to begin play at 9:00.


Ringers: Eliza Childs will be supervising the ringers game....watch for more information.


We are looking forward to another great summer of golf together! Join the fun and plan to stay each week after golf for lunch and chatter at the Fairway Cafe - sandwiches and salads are being catered from Fin & Fern!
