Wednesday Evening League

Women on Wednesday (WOW) Fun League

The Women on Wednesday (WOW) Fun League at the Chester Golf Club was founded in 2015 to provide a welcoming social golf experience for women of all ages and abilities – from the beginner seeking to learn the game in a relaxed, supportive, non-competitive atmosphere to the experienced player wanting to enjoy a fun round with friends, old and new.

The WOW Fun League is open to members of the Chester Golf Club and to non-member, green fee golfers. The league is organized and operated by a team of volunteers and runs from June through August with a closing tournament the first week of September. Rounds are nine holes only and tee times begin in the late afternoon to ensure that working women can participate. Players pay a $2.00 fee each week. Keeping score is optional as scorecards are not collected.  Small prizes are awarded each week for some fun games on three of the holes.

Sign up sheets for weekly play are posted in advance in the women’s locker room at the golf club. Depending on the Covid-19 guidelines in effect, an email process may be used instead.

The WOW Fun League did not operate in the summer of 2020 due to Covid-19. The Coordinator and Monthly Hosts are looking forward to welcoming back our returning players and to welcoming new women to our very popular fun league in 2021!

TOP 10 REASONS YOUR JUNIOR SHOULD PLAY GOLF

  1. Enjoy the outdoors:Young people should play golf because it is an opportunity to spend a few hours in the fresh air. While playing golf, kids and teens can experience all types of animals and plants.

.9. Develop lifelong friendships: You never know who you will meet on a golf course and interaction with others allow kids to develop social skills.

  1. Practice personal responsibility: Sometimes the ball doesn’t always bounce your way, but regardless of the outcome, there is no blaming your teammates for what happens.
  2. Have a safe place to play:The golf course is a safe place and facilitates mentoring relationships in a safe environment. Even in the Covid-19 world.
  3. Manage emotions:Golf closely parallels real life as one experiences the highs and lows of the game. This range of experience from birdies to triple bogeys rewards a young person’s ability to keep each shot in perspective, manage one’s emotions, maintain a positive outlook and focus on the shot at hand.
  4. Appreciate diversity:Golf is a game that can be played for a lifetime by anyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or skill level.
  5. Prepare for life:Golf is a sport that helps prepare kids and teens for careers in business and other professional arenas.
  6. Learn etiquette:Young people should play golf because it is based on characteristics that are missing in our society. Golf places an emphasis on etiquette. In golf there is no judge or referee; instead, players govern themselves and fellow competitors.
  7. Spend time with family:Golf is a game that encourages family participation.

1B. EXCERSISE:  Golf is a sport that helps young and old people get off that couch. When you play golf, walking the golf course and carrying your bag, a 150-pound person burns 350 calories and walks more than 10,000 steps.

1A. IT’S FUN:  What can be more fun than being at the golf course?
