FWGA 2016 Club and Players Championships

 Another exciting FWGA Club and Player’s Championship season is about to begin.   As president of FWGA,  I would like to encourage you to dust off your golf clubs and join the race for our Club and Player’s Championship.

Tournament championships will be awarded to two players in 2016.   One to the top low gross player (Club Championship) and the other to the low net scoring player (Player’s Championship).   We have 6 tournaments this season in which you can qualify by taking your best three scores.   This means you can throw out up to three scores if you play all six events.   To participate you must contact me, Liz Riddle, prior to the first tournament at Eagle Vines, April 2 and let me know which division you will be playing in.

 A copy of the Championship guide is available on the site.   These competitions are open to all FWGA members and provide a fun and challenging way to keep your game sharp.   We encourage all of you to come out and join the fun.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at  Liz Riddle.

This is a sprawling, hilly layout where one can come across side hill lies, wind and undulating greens – nothing new or too challenging for the FWGA golfer! The signature holes are the uphill 15th ( par-4) and the 16th ( par-3) that features a plateau green surrounded by rocks (here, you would holler “duck” rather and “fore”.

A few other courses that Robert Muir Graves designed familiar to FWGA are Boundary Oaks, Diablo Creek, San Geronimo, Quail Lodge, Sea Ranch, Delta View and Moraga Country Club.  This should give you a good idea of what to expect at Blue Rock Springs-golfing enjoyment!
