Registration Now Open for Windy City Golf League's Summer Season

Windy City Golf LeagueChicago's only flexible, yet competitive, amateur golf league is ready to tee off its summer season. Featuring individual head-to-head and new two-person team scramble leagues, the Windy City Golf League is a city-wide golf league designed to fit the increasingly busy schedules of Chicago's golfing population.

The league caters to men and women; diehard and lesiurely players; those with well-rounded solid games and those who're still developing the perfect swing.

By joining the Windy City Golf League, golfers can play matches on more than 100 courses of their choosing across the Chicago metropolitan area at a time that's convenient for them.

Registration for the 2010 Summer League is now open, and will be available through July 14. League play begins July 18 and runs until Oct. 9. You can register and track your progress to see how you match up to others on WCGL's interactive website, www.windycitygolfleague.com.

Cost

Each 12-week season requires a $60 registration fee that also serves as a membership fee. The Windy City Golf League offers discounts to members who register for more than one league within the same season, and for those who prepay for more than one season at a time.

League Formats

- The league offers two (2) formats: Individual and Team Scramble

Individual Head-to-Head League

In head-to-head competition, you'll play matches against each of your opponents as regular stroke play matches while abiding by USGA rules. Scores for each hole will be entered on the league Web site after the match. Although the matches are head-to-head, don't feel as if you're stuck playing in the same twosome all season long.

Golfers are encouraged to round out foursomes with friends, family or other league members.

2-Person Team Scramble

In the Team Scramble league, you and a teammate will play against other two-person teams. The matches will be played in a two-person scramble format, but will still be measured in strokes. Scores will again be entered for each hole on the WCGL Web site. Opponents will be determined based on preferred playing time and aggregate team skill level.

Pairings

Windy City Golf League will group you into a flight, based on your preferred playing time and your scoring ability/skill level. You will then be bracketed with six other golfers or teams who have similar preferences and abilities. Each player or team in your bracket represents a match for you during the season. You will have two weeks to complete each match over the course of the 12-week season.

Season Schedule

WCGL offers two (2) 12-week sessions during the Chicago golfing season (spring and summer). The Individual and 2-Person Scramble leagues run simultaneously. You may sign up for more than one league, but keep time constraints in mind.

Match Scheduling

The great part is that you and your opponents will determine the time, course, tees to play from and number of holes to play (9 or 18) for each match. One of you will be designated the home team for each match, and will have final word on match specifics. The home team will be responsible for scheduling the tee time.

Arghe Isle Cup Tournament

At the end of each season, WCGL sponsors a one-day tournament at one of metro Chicago's top public courses, full of prizes, trophies, food and fun! A player can qualify for the tournament by winning their bracket, or by accumulating enough points on the flight leaderboard. Several wild card qualifying spots are also up for grabs. The overall tournament winners from each flight win the coveted Arghe Isle Cup.
