On Saturday, June 22, MWGA members and guests will need to round up some partners and return to the familiar territory of Huron Meadows Metropark Golf Course in Brighton for a round of Best 2 of 4.
“The summer should finally be kicked into gear so it’s back to an early 8:00 am Shotgun start. This is one of the fun formats we have to look forward to and one that doesn’t matter if every hole isn’t one from your A game, so long as your partners carry the ball because team scoring for this 4-woman competition will be based on the best two of four gross and net scores per hole," said Course Director Nancy Serra.
Designed by Susan Nyquist, Huron Meadows golf course opened in 1984.
The member fee for 18 holes, cart, range balls and prizes is $63; non-member $83; plus an optional $10 to participate in contests such as chip-ins and closest to the flagstick.
Women playing as non-members will receive a $20 certificate that may be used during 2013 toward membership or other MWGA events. Registration is available at www.mwgolf.org.
