Ladybirds is a league for women golfers in Brunswick County. It's been in existence for 24 years, and Oak Island was a charter member. There are 11 clubs included this year from Brunswick County. They include: Carolina National, Carolina Shores, Crow Creek, Lockwood Folly, Magnolia Greens, Meadowlands/Farmstead, Oak Island, Rivers Edge, Sea Trail, St. James, and The Lakes. Each year, every club hosts a tournament which is played from March thru October. To be eligible to play in the tournament, a player must have a maximum index of 40 and be a member of her ladies' golf association. Sign-up sheets are posted in the locker rooms three (3) weeks before each tournament. Each club is allotted eleven (11) players, but alternates are encouraged to sign up for extra spots in the tournament in case there is still room for others to participate. Cancellation must be done 48 hours in advance or you do not receive a refund. Prizes (a sleeve of balls) are given in each flight according to low gross, second low gross, low net, second low net and lowest putts. There's a maximum of 10 strokes within each flight. At the end of the season, the final tournament, "The Cup", is played at the Ladybirds host club. In "The Cup", only eight (8) players represent their club.
To qualify to play in "The Cup" and to attend the luncheon, a player must have played in a minimum of two (2) tournaments. End of year prizes are awarded at the luncheon.
A good attempt was made for "The Cup" by our Oak Island Women, but we came in a bit short and St. James were the winners!!!
As the saying goes...NEXT YEAR!!
Ladybird 2017 Schedule
Ladybirds Oak Island tournament is Wednesday, March 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am
UPDATE on Oak Island tournament:
Great News! Although we already have 11 players in the Tourney, the next 15 alternates have a spot from the OIWGA. I know we have about 9 alternates signed up. They are in so next to their name I need to know what lunch option they will want if staying for lunch. Those golfing can place a check made out to OIWGA Ladybirds with the appropriate amount and place in the Ladybirds box in the locker room.
RESULTS: 117 golfers from 11 clubs had a successful day of golf while rekindling friendship or making new friendships.
Thanks to all the OIWGA ladies for committing to the day and all your help. All the outside ladies love coming to our club. (Who wouldn't, right?)
