SFWGA 9 hole, 18 hole and SNEWGA 2024
Applications for the 2024 SFWGA League are now available. Our season starts April 30th for the 9 hole league and May 2nd for the 18 hole league.
SFWGA Dues are $60.00 this year which includes league administration, annual awards your GHIN fee. This year we will continue to use a pay -for- play format in the weekly tournaments. Each tournament day you will pay standard greens fees plus a $5 tournament fee. $4 of that tournament fee gets pooled and awarded to the winners of that day's tournament and $1 of it goes to pay a side game, so even if you aren’t having your best round, you can still be a winner. We will continue to have payouts for each division in each league. Payouts are in the form of pro shop credit.
2024 Applications are due March 22, 2024. Note the earlier deadline this year since there is a potential for capping the league. Returning 2023 league members who pay on or before the deadline are guaranteed a spot in the league. All other applicants will be accepted if space permits.

Ladies - please keep up with the group in front of you. If there is a hole open, you can make up time by having the first person who putts out go immediately to the next tee to tee off while the others finish. Remember, it is the responsibility of each player in the group to keep track of each other's scores when playing. Confirm your playing partner's score after each hole so as to minimize any disagreement or uncertainty.
A reminder about scorecards:
Two fully completed scorecards should be kept per group for all tournaments - as a means of verifying the scores. Be sure to spell out last names of all players clearly on the cards. Only one card handed in - It must be signed, attested and dated.
