Pease remember, you may jump in and join these leagues at any point in the season. Whenever you are available on Tuesday evening or Thursday morning, please feel welcome to sign up.
Our Traveling Team participated in their first competing May 15th at North Oaks Country Club. The first event proved to be a challenge, as we are in last place. The ladies are confident we will turn the tables at Midland Hills, Friday, June 12th. If you are interested in playing in this event, please contact Dori Martinez.
