Women’s Golf Leagues:
Mendakota women kick off the season with “Ladies Night Out” in early April, featuring a variety of clothing, accessory and golf related vendors, cooking demonstrations and a raffle. This is a great opportunity for all women of Mendakota to visit with other women, meet new members, try their swing in the putting contest and get signed up for the 18 Hole League, 9 Hole League or both!
The 9 Hole League plays on Tuesday mornings and the 18 Hole League plays on Thursday mornings. Women are welcome to participate in both. Leagues encourage participants to play with different players each time, which promotes fellowship and the opportunity to get to know each other. Once a month the Pro Shop puts together foursomes for a shotgun start followed by a lunch meeting. In addition to weekly games, the women’s leagues hold a variety of fun events and tournaments, including guest days, beat the Pro days and a Women’s Club Championship, to name a few.
Men’s Golf League:
The Wednesday Afternoon Men’s Golf League is a rather unique league. Tee times start around 3:45pm on Wednesday afternoon giving participants almost the entire day to conduct normal business. A member can confirm his "place" in that Wednesday's group by calling the Pro Shop as late as 11:00am the same day and can ask to go off first or last as his schedule permits. The Pro Shop pairs two man teams, which play against all the other two man teams playing that day.
The focus of the league is to play with and get to know a variety of members, while enjoying a round of golf after work. It is far more friendly than competitive, with golfers of all abilities participating.
The season kicks off with an annual Wednesday Afternoon Men's Golf League Happy Hour in March or April, but men are encouraged to join at any time.
Senior Men’s Golf League:
The Mendakota Senior Men’s Golf League began in 1983 and is for men ages 55 or older who are looking for a fun group of guys to play with. They play Friday mornings throughout the season on a walk-on basis. Tee times begin at 8:00am but you are encouraged to come early to enjoy special treats each week. The Seniors have various team events including: quota points, best ball and 666. Individuals are recognized for the longest putt and closest to the pin. You can play every week or as often as your schedule permits.
