Church League

Church League

What’s it all about? Well we’re glad you asked. The league will be conducted similarly to the existing softball and basketball leagues. Each church will have a team roster of approximately ten golfers of which four will play in weekly 9-hole matches. Each week, your church will play against a different church. We hope this will give everyone a chance to see friends from other churches and meet some new ones also.

Where will the matches be held? All of the weekly matches will be held here at McCanless Golf Club (Jake Alexander Rd. North, Right onto Stokes Ferry Rd., course is 1.4 miles on right).

What time will the matches be held? Each 9-hole match will be a shotgun start at 5:30pm on Tuesday afternoons. At the halfway mark there will be a bi-week scheduled for all churches (July 4th week).

How much will the league cost? The entry fee will be $100 for each church that participates. This fee will go towards prizes and the administration costs of running the league. There will also be a $14 cart & green fee for each golfer due before the match every Tuesday. The league will also benefit 2 local charities to be decided at the organizational meeting!

How does my church get signed up? There will be an organizational meeting on in the clubhouse of McCanless Golf Club. This meeting will serve to answer any and all questions regarding the Rowan County Church Golf League. Please send at least one representative from your church so you won’t miss out on any of the information discussed and your church will be involved in establishing direction for the upcoming 2010 season.

We look forward to another great season of golf and we hope you and your church will join us at McCanless Golf Club to take part in all the fun. We are truly excited about the opportunity to work with a lot of great people from a lot of great area churches!

**2020 Organizational Meeting will be held Tuesday, March 31st at 5:30pm here in the clubhouse**

If you are interested in getting a team in the 2020 season, then please contact Scott in the pro shop.
