Are you one of those golfers who dreams of hitting the green in regulation? Well, make your dreams come true with Oakwood Couples!

In our league, each person can choose their tees according to their skill and comfort level. Judy plays from the forward Silver tees, and Bob plays from the medium White tees. Gregg plays from the back Blue tees, and Kathy plays from the medium Yellow tees (but she is going to switch to the Yellow/Silver hybrids next year). Our new computer system adjusts the handicaps according to USGA regulations so that these diverse couples can golf together as a four-person team or against each other in fair competition. We keep things lively by designing a different game each play day. Now that’s a recipe for social fun while golfing!

Generally, we golf twice a month on Fridays from mid-November to mid-May. If you have an IronOaks golf membership, you pay just $36.00 a couple for the meal and prizes. If you do not have a golf membership, you also pay for golf.

To join our league, complete a membership application, have an active GHIN number and pay $40.00 per couple annual membership fee. For comprehensive instructions (and any other information including play days, games and menus), visit our website at www.oakwoodcouplesgolf.com.
