Match play leagues forming

Two match play leagues are forming over the next couple weeks at Emily Greens.

For those who are still working or who like evening golf, 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays the Sunsetters League plays.

For those who are retired or enjoy morning golf, 8:30 a.m. Wednesdays is another league time.

Both leagues play the Back 9 at Emily Greens featuring head-to-head match play using handicaps. Participants do not have to be “good” golfers to participate and participants can sign up with a buddy as a team.

Handicaps level the playing field as participants play each match. It is all about having fun on the golf course at Emily Greens. Call Tony or Gregg at 218-763-2169 to sign up or for more information.
