Outside Leagues

WGAM

The Women’s Golf Association of Massachusetts has been in place since 1900 promoting interest in women’s golf. Ould Newbury Ladies’ League participates in two WGAM sponsored events: Spring Cup and Fall Cup. Membership in WGAM is encouraged as numerous events throughout the season are open to WGAM members providing the opportunity to compete at a variety of courses.

Spring Cup

These matches, which are played in April and May, promote friendly competition with other area clubs and encourage the development of women’s amateur golf in Massachusetts. To play in the Spring Cup you must be a member of the WGAM, Ould Newbury and the ONGC Ladies League, and have a handicap index of 36 or lower.

In 2015, there were 26 "cups" whcih are determined based on overall team handicap. Ould Newbury fielded two teams for Spring Cup 2015.

Team 1: Cup 12
Cindy Rodzen
Louise Healey
Karen Miller
Leea Trussell
Jane McDonald 
Team 2: Cup 26
Pat Iris
Candace Erikson
Catherine Ganarche
Donna Osborne
Kathy Melia

2015 Substitutes were: Wendy Colby, Janine Margeson, Nancy Holt.

Fall Cup

The ONGC Ladies League is participating in the Fall Cup in order to provide more opportunities to compete with other clubs. Where the Spring Cup is played by the same team from the club every week, Fall Cup can send a different team for each match. Matches consist of teams of six playing in pairs in a better ball format. Participants must be an ONGC (or Freedom Pass) member, belong to the WGAM, and have a handicap of 36 or lower.

North Shore League

The North Shore League (NSL) is comprised of six matches each season, three away and three at home, with six players from Ould Newbury in each match. The NSL is open to any Ladies’ League and ONGC (or Freedom Pass) member who either has or can play to a 30 handicap index or lower. A sign-up sheet will be available in the spring

Ladies' Tuesday Morning

  • Tee times start at approximately 8:30 a.m. Tuesday mornings ; 18 holes
  • The “Nifty Niners” 9-hole Tuesday group follows the 18-hole tee times.
  • Play begins April 21st and ends September 29th (players may join at any time throughout the season)

The Tuesday Morning League is more informal than the Ladybug League. Each week, for the 18 hole play, we establish a game or contest to provide some structure, but most importantly… to have FUN. The following criteria will be employed when establishing the weekly games:

  • We will choose games with scores that can be posted into the GHIN system.
  • The games are identified and published in the ladies locker room.
  • Foursomes will be assigned. This is done to provide balance to the teams and also to assure that we are making it comfortable for all to play.
  • We will provide at least two sessions for open golf; that is, play your own game.
  • We will assure at least one “Field Trip” (organized golf at a different club) per season. Each member who chooses to participate will be responsible for her own fees at the chosen golf club.

Ladybug Overview

The Ladybug League meets on Monday nights (4 p.m. sign in) for nine holes of match play.

Membership: You must have an established a handicap of 45 or less and be a member of the Ould Newbury Ladies League to play in the Ladybug League (as of 2010, the two leagues have merged). Nominal dues of $10 to cover the logistical costs of the Ladybug League are required.

Commitment: We ask for a regular commitment because you will be part of a team that depends on your attendance. If you know in advance you cannot make all but one or two matches, please sign up as a substitute versus a regular, weekly player.

Format: Four-women teams who play two-person best ball for nine holes each week. Teams are made up by handicap, with A (Captain), B, C, and D players. Your captain will notify you of your team prior to the opening scramble.

Substitutes: Contact Lucille Lang or Donna Osborne if you need a sub (call as early as possible!).

Dinner: A light dinner will be available after play for a nominal fee; sign up in the Pro Shop prior to play in if interested.

Sign-up: First preference is given to those who have previously been in the League, then to prior substitutes, and finally to new applicants. Substitutes are always needed and welcome to play each week after the scheduled teams if not needed for the night. Sign up early (on bulletin board outside the Ladies Locker Room or by calling Barbara Knight) because the League will close when the limit is reached.

Fees: $10 per person for the season. Make checks out to Ould Newbury Ladies League.
