Each member maintains their own ringer card (3 x 5 index card) stored in the back room area of the Women's Locker Room. Each time a player improves a score on any hole, it must be attested/signed by a member and posted on the Ringer card. All holes should be filled and posted using pencil. Incomplete cards will not be counted. Prizes are awarded in September for both Net and Gross prizes. New members do not need established handicaps to begin participation.

One hundred and fifty-six teams representing approximately 110 clubs are divided into 26 competitions of six teams to win that particular division or "cup". The matches are played in 5 consecutive Thursdays beginning late April and ending in May.
To become a member, a golfer must score a '2' on any hole on the course, (generally a par 3, but could be an eagle on a par 4) and have it attested by another WCC member. Once attested, you can buy a 2-Club pin, and are then entitled to collect $1.00 from each person in her playing group who are also '2-club' members anytime she scores another '2' on any hole. Once a member, always a member. The 2-Club is recognized at golf clubs around the country, so where your pin!
