Area Golf Leagues Starting

Web posted May 4, 2021
Golf Leagues Starting at Emily Greens

It is that time of year for leagues to be forming and starting at Emily Greens. If you have never played in a league or felt like you do not have the ‘game’ to play; now is the time to join. There is no intimidation factor as the focus is always on having fun on the golf course. You do not have to be with the ‘in crowd’ as these are not just for the regulars – no clicks allowed – everybody will know your name and make you feel welcomed! After all, Emily Greens is the friendliest course around.

Men’s Leagues:
Tuesday Mornings at 8:30am: a fun 9 hole league on the Front 9 starting the first Tuesday in May (May 4th). In the month of May, it is a 9am start time for this league.

Tuesday Morning at 10:30am: a 9 hole scramble on the Back 9 also starting May 4th. Many men play in both leagues or just one of them.

Tuesday Evening at 5:30pm: a Match Play league featuring 2 person teams playing from just after Memorial Day finishing just after Labor Day. Geared to the working men who can not play on the day leagues.

Wednesday Morning at 8:30am: a similar Match Play league on the back 9 for those who can play during the day. These two Match Play leagues make for some very fun and memorable times on the golf course.

Thursday afternoons at 3pm: an informal scramble on the Front 9 for anyone to come and play. This fun afternoon has started, come when you can.

Women’s Leagues:
Wednesday Evening at 4:30pm: a fun, recreational league on the Front 9 starting the first Wednesday in May (May 5th). A great way to spend an evening after work with some old friends or new friends you just met playing golf.

Thursday Morning at 9am: also a 9 hole league on the Front 9 and a great way to start the day. This begins the first Thursday in May which is the 6th of May, . There is nothing better than a sun filled morning on the golf course leaving you the rest of the day for your other summer pastimes.

Couples Mixers
We are looking to start a Couples Mixer to take place a couple Sundays per month. The first one will be Sunday, May 9th at 3pm

All leagues can accept new members. For more information, call Emily Greens at 218-763-2169

Crosswoods Women’s Golf
The Crosswoods Women’s Golf League starts the first week of May, playing 18 holes on Mondays and 9 holes on Wednesdays. Choose to play Mondays, Wednesdays or both! Come and play any day, whenever your schedule allows.

We plan to return to our normal season events, holding a Spring Lunch in June and a Fall Luncheon to wrap up the season in mid-September, with various scrambles, our club tournament and other special activities throughout the summer. We charge a small league fee plus your GHIN membership fee which are due your first day of play.

Please join us for a fun 2021 season at Crosswoods, starting May 3rd and May 5th. You may contact the course at 218-692-4653 to sign up or to get more details.
