Registration Open for Weekly Leagues

EWGA Seattle Chapter League Play is a weekly organized golf (9 holes unless otherwise noted) at different courses throughout the Seattle area; it is fun, non-competitive play. This year we start late April and end in the middle of September. There are two types of leagues from which to choose:

"Session" Leagues
--A member can sign up for any or all of the four five-week sessions of play, registering for the session and paying in advance. Many members prefer this structure because the commitment ensures they get themselves out onto the course…they've signed up so they show up! If you are unable to make one of the five weeks of the session, the league coordinator provides a "sub list" for contact, and your sub pays you for the night you miss.

"Drop-In" Leagues--Also again this year we will offer a few "drop-in leagues". For these leagues, players contact the league coordinator at least two days in advance of play to confirm their spot for that week's round, and then pay at the course when they check in. Members who have unpredictable work schedules may prefer this format.New this year for those who have calendar flexibility, we have added two MORNING Drop-in Leagues. Though these are called "drop-in" leagues, it's important to tell the coordinator that you intend to show up!Each course has its own start time and number of tee times reserved for EWGA players.

Each League also has one or two Coordinators that arrange foursomes, coordinate any changes with the courses and generally make sure you have a good time. Although League Play is only open to EWGA members, guests are welcome to play twice (two nights) before joining EWGA. In addition to golf, most Leagues get together after each night of play for dinner or drinks to socialize and tell tall tales of golf. Please see the 
League FAQ to learn more about our very popular leagues.

For the 2014 season (April-Sept), leagues will be held at the following courses.
