  • I can't post scores anymore??? Golf Net is no more!
    What is happening with the LPGA offered Golf Net handicap system?

    The proprietary Golf Net system previously offered by the LPGA ended 2022. 

    In order for our members to obtain and maintain a golf handicap index, our chapter has formed a club under the Northern Nevada Golf Association for the purpose of offering the handicap system.

    You can reactivate an old handicap number or obtain a new one by following this link.  No. NV GHIN - Handicap sign-up Event :: USGA GHIN Handicap index (golfgenius.com)  There is a $36.40 annual fee to maintain your handicap index.

    Download the GHIN app to your smartphone for easy entry of scores to track your progress.


     


  • High Desert Wedge Warriors at Cup Finals

    On behalf of all the High Desert Wedge Warriors, we would like to thank you for your support in sending our rookie team to Horseshoe Bay, Texas.  It was an amazing experience although we learned that you must pack for all types of weather or you will be buying jackets and $30 beanies because Texas isn't always warm or dry. We met competitors from across the country and Canada.  We thought of Texas as flat, but we were in hill country, and we hit up hill, downhill, across water and gullies, your ball sometimes landed in the trees, but the tricky was the deep sand traps or the brick walls around the water - who would think that your ball would lodge itself in a corner of the step of a rock wall surrounding a pond. The practice rounds gave us a look at the courses that where much more challenging than we were used to.  

    On the days of competition, some of us were in the 8 am and others in the 2 pm shotgun.  Those not playing, watched the leader board, hole by hole of the players.  Win, lose or tie the hole.  On the final day in the afternoon, we were jumping for joy as we were #1 on the leaderboard - Woohoo, it was short lived as others finished their matches and our last 2 players battled all 18 holes until they finally succumbed by a lucky shot by their opponents.  Your rookie team is very proud to say we took 13 out of 50 teams.  A heartfelt thank you for your encouragement and financial support.

                Donna, Julie, Christi, Ida, Geneva, Gina, Jeong and Aubrey
