Women Golfers of Ironwood
There are two groups: 18-Hole Golfers and Niners.
The WGI play days are Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesdays are shotguns with the Pro Shop making the foursomes for a team competition. Thursdays are tee time signups with individual competitions. After play on Tuesdays, there is a buffet luncheon and one day each month there is a meeting following lunch. Signups for play days and events is done with the Foretees computer system.
There are five Guest Days and a three day Quail Run Invitational Tournament in the Spring. Tournaments for WGI members are the Presidentsí Cup, the Club Championship, and the Member-Member in April.
Every effort is made to involve new members and acquaint them with the other women members. Big Sisters are assigned and early in the year a new member reception is held.
WGI is a very friendly and active group of women.
Niners are the 9 hole women's golf group at Ironwood.
Play days are Tuesday and Thursday mornings, November through April. Niners also have special events each year, including Couple's Twilight Golf followed by an early dinner, Guest Days, Championship, Eclectic Tournament, Fall and Spring Luncheons, and more. General Niner membership meetings with lunch follow play once monthly. Signups for play days and events are done with the Foretees computer system, or by calling the Pro Shop.
Every effort is made to involve new members involved and ensure they feel welcome as part of the Niners. The Niners are a fun and welcoming group, with members across all age groups who wish to play golf in a shorter time period and make new friends.
The Ironwoodies or "Putters" are a ladies golf group that meets on Thursdays from November through April. Each Thursday the group meets at 10am in the Bistro to socialize and have their weekly meeting. Following the meeting, out to the putting green they go! After putting, these ladies head into the dining room for lunch.
Men's Golf Events
The Ironwood Men's Club organizes and promotes major and weekly golf events throughout the season. The major events include: Club Championship (stroke play), President's Cup (match play), Member-Member (stroke play), Member-Member Match Play, and the Coyote Classic Member-Guest tournament. The weekly golf events include Wednesday Men's Day, which are usually shotgun starts followed by lunch. Once a month, there is a special event with a Men's Club meeting following lunch. On Mondays, the Bogey Bunch, which is open to all members, plays a two best balls of four game. Foursomes for Monday and Wednesday games are frequently assigned by the Pro Shop and are excellent ways for new members to meet other members.
The greatest strength of Ironwood is the friendliness of its members and the many programs and events that allow members to get to know one another and make lasting friendships. The Men's Club contributes to that goal.
