As many of you know,  this past Spring,  it was announced by Club Management that all credit book funds must be used before December 31st.   An allowance was made for people that win credit book funds in Nov. and Dec. to roll over those amounts as they may not have enough time to make purchases. All funds prior to Nov. 1st must be used at the club before the end of the year.


Credit Book Extensions - Members may request to have their fund roll over if they have orders placed or particular items they are expecting to come into the shop. A few members have requested a delay until January due to demo days and special orders.


F&B - Credit book can be used for food and beverage and all the member has to do is tell the server when they get their check.


 Hope this helps clarify the credit book questions.

Sign-ups for FRIDAY

You are able to sign up all four players for your foursome on Friday, if you wish to do so. 

 HOWEVER, if anyone in the foursome needs to cancel they have to cancel themselves, even though you signed them up, you are not able to cancel them.

When can I sign up on the website for Play Days

You can sign up 2 weeks in advance for Tuesday & Friday regular play days the cutoff for:

Tuesdays is 5PM Sunday

Fridays is  5PM Wednesday

It’s hard to believe we’ve played all of our tournaments and only have one more guest day left.  It’s been fun despite the rain and cold weather this year.  Doesn’t matter though because now it’s gorgeous.  

We (the Board) are working on a survey for you.  We have a few things we would like your opinion on.  We’re hoping to get it out before the season ends...but if not look for it early this summer.

Hope to see you at the general meeting on April 16!!!

Time to get your guest or guests invited for our April guest day April 26th.  What a great way to bring an end to our wonderful season of tournaments.  It will” KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF” !

MCCLGA Play Days

Friday is a gross and net score play day.  The intention is to complete each hole.  Some of the Tuesday games also require you to complete each hole.

To try to make the pace of play faster we are going to use a maximum limit on these days.  If a player reaches a net 9 on a hole that player may pick up and record that score and the player will still be in competition.  The net score is your score plus the number of strokes she receives because of her handicap.  For purposes of GHIN posting the computer will still score the player at her maximum score and the player will still be in the competition.

 As secretary for 2017 -2019 I am the official record keeper of the Monterey Country Club Ladies Golf Association.   I keep a comprehensive log of items discussed and debated during meetings.  These records, known as the minutes, cover what was accomplished.  I also note the members who are present, and write down actions in the order they occurred.  Once a meeting is complete, I make formal reports and copies.  I also maintain records of past meetings.  My duties include:  record and publish minutes of board meetings and general meetings. The approved minutes are available on the website: and Ladies Locker room.  During the two years I served with President Sally Lillard and President Gail Zalta.  Thanks to the two Presidents recording minutes were expedited and the meetings proceeded competently.  






(posted 2/27/19) An Update from Rules Chair, Josette Hess

 It has come to my attention that members are confused about the out-of-bounds rule.  There is a new out-of-bounds rule, however, it must be adopted as a local rule.  Monterey Men’s and Ladies’ Clubs have decided NOT to adopt the new rule.  Out-of-bounds should be played as it always has been played – stroke and distance.  You may hit a provisional ball and if your original ball is in bounds you may play it without penalty.

2017-18 Most Improved Player



 I am pleased to announce Bev Michelson is our Most Improved Player for 2017-18. She began the season with a 28.9 Index & finished with a 24.3! She was also April’s Most Improved Player. Great effort on her part to play as well as she can in every round.


Bev plays on most Tuesdays & Fridays and enjoys playing in a skins game on Wednesday. She enjoys traveling and returned from a lengthy Asian trip last spring.  During the summer she & Don spend tons of time on their boat not far from their home in Vancouver, BC. It’s a pleasure to have Bev as a member of the MCCLGA.


Congratulations Bev!
