Currie Park Men’s Club Weekday League

Due to high demand, the Currie Men’s Golf Club is starting a new venture that includes 9 -hole events on select weekdays. What was once a weekend only club, is now adding Thursday evenings to the mix. All the weekend events remain the same. This is an expansion of the event schedule to accommodate the golfer who wants to join a club, but weekend availability is a challenge.

To participate in these Thursday events, you MUST BE A MEMBER of the Currie Park Men’s Golf Club. The annual membership fee is $100 which pays for a WSGA Handicap, snacks/beverages during meetings, prize fund, awards, supplies, MCPLA $5 cap fund, and much more. It’s a great value and since there is no differentiation in member status, members can play weekend or weekday events.

These Thursday events will take place on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays each month, with  6:00pm shotgun start. Milwaukee County Parks gives us a wonderful package deal - $20 gets you 9 holes (walking), 2 beverage vouchers, and $6 towards the prize fund!

24 Player Maximum
Thursday Schedule

Just a few things to point out about the 2015 calendar:

There are 5 open dates at this time that Mark will not fill until we get the Wanaki & Hon-E-Kor Challenge matches set. Steve & Dan, will work with their counterparts at these other clubs to make this a priority.

Secondly, the last weekend in September was set up to facilitate guys staying overnight in either Fond du Lac or Oshkosh, as both the courses we are playing that weekend are within a 30-45 minute drive.

Mark did reach out to the River Club, and they responded that they only did events with groups like ours on Mondays.

League Match Play will be opt-in, rather than putting everyone in.

Spring kick-off meeting is Monday, March 9th, at 6:30pm at Currie Park.
