TWIN LAKES GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB - TWIN LAKES WOMEN'S GOLF DIVISION
The purpose of Twin Lakes Women’s Golf Division, hereafter referred to as Women’s Division, is to enable women golfers of Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club to organize a division that will foster competitive golfing activities in accordance with USGA rules. Our mission is to provide enjoyable golf activities, acquainting members with a working knowledge of the rules, etiquette and sportsmanship of the game for all women, regardless of their skill level. Approved golfing membership is a requirement for membership in the Women’s Division.
The Women’s Division currently has two blocks of tee times specifically for women golfers - Tuesday morning (18 Hole Ladies) and Tuesday evening (Sundowners). It is possible a third group could be added to enjoy playing nine holes on another day.
Eighteen Hole Ladies
Play is every Tuesday morning starting in March and going through October. The Eighteen Hole Ladies play with assigned tee times that are made in advance with the Pro Shop. The last Tuesday of the month is an 8:30 shotgun followed by a luncheon and monthly meeting. The exception would be if there is an outside tournament.
- Weekly Competitions
- Annual Tournaments include:
- Captains Cup, Presidents Cup
- Women's Club Championship
- Partners Tournament
- Ladies Guests Day
- One Fundraiser Tournament
- Month end shot guns and other fun events
This nine hole group was initially organized to facilitate working players but is open to any Women’s Division member wanting to play Tuesday in the late afternoons, as early as 4:45 or early evenings as late as 5:30.
Sundowners play starts the Tuesday following the change to Daylight Savings Time through September. Tee times are made in advance with the Pro Shop. A light dinner afterward with the players is a pleasant time.

It is important for all members to establish a handicap. This is the equalizer of the game of golf. We strive to play by USGA Rules in order to proudly represent Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club. To establish a handicap, a player is eligible for a tempory handicap with five (5) 18 hole rounds and a permanent handicap with ten (10) 18 hole rounds.
The Women’s Division year wraps up with an annual luncheon or dinner that includes an awards ceremony and officer installation.
