Golf Fore Gals
swung into action in May offering a variety of golf opportunities for women of all ages and skill levels.
Golf Fore Gals’ mission is to provide women with a fun and safe environment to discover and enjoy the game of golf. In addition to regular tee-times at a wide range of courses, the club offers lessons, rules and etiquette seminars, social events and opportunities to develop friendships which last beyond the golf season.
The club boasts over 250 members in three regions across the province including Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and the expanding Okanagan region. Each region offers a calendar of events that runs throughout the year with a focus on golf from April through October. Additional tee-times are offered in Maui over the fall and winter months.
There are three types of annual Golf Fore Gals memberships:
1. Beginner membership features lessons, executive courses and rules and etiquette seminars;
2. Social membership for those recreational players who want to experience golf without a handicap factor; and
3. Golf British Columbia (BCGA) membership includes earning an RCGA handicap factor and opportunities to compete in club and zone championships.
Golf Fore Gals offers women access to prime tees times at some of the best courses without having to pick-up a phone. Members log on to the website to choose their course, tee time and playing partners.
Some courses offer regular week day or evening play, others are destinations for weekends or out of town golf getaways. The club is currently affiliated with over 30 courses in BC. Courses offered for regular league play in the lower mainland include Delta, Greenacres, University Golf Club, Morgan Creek, Hazelmere, Eaglequest and Poppy Estates. In the Okanagan, courses include the Golf BC properties (The Quail, The Bear, Pinnacle and Gallagher’s Canyon), The Harvest, Fairview Mountain, Osoyoos Golf & Country Club to mention a few.
Golf Fore Gals believes in giving back to the community. One week each month, a percentage of fees are set aside to support community charities that benefit women.
