Golf Leagues & Camps

Newbies League

Once you’ve completed the First Swing program or you feel comfortable jumping in, join in with BREC Golf’s Newbies League. This follow-up program teaches you how to play in a league setting, without the pressure of a traditional league. It will inspire you to keep on the golf course and continually improve your game with other newcomers.

The Newbie program is for players who are moving gradually out of the beginner aspects and are starting to have a level of success in hitting their shots a bit higher and further, scoring a bit better… but still consider themselves fairly new to the game and need some extra time in developing it.  You are not alone, there are a lot of golfers in this category, and we are seeking to provide you a venue you can participate within and grow… and have fun doing it.  Danny Simoneaux, the golf manager at City Park, is working to coordinate Newbies into a newcomer’s friendly environment where they can obtain more opportunities to play at their own level.  He will coordinate practices, clinics, play days, and possible league development.  Contact him at dsimoneaux@brec.org and tell him you are interested.

Family Golf Leagues

This program is designed for Families with boys and girls ages 6-17 (there will be two divisions: adults with juniors ages 6-11; and ages 12-17). There will be clinics and on-course training provided, but for better results, it is recommended that parents obtain instruction for themselves in First Swing Clinics and for their juniors within The First Tee during the Spring. Family members will be assigned specific tee markers from which to play at Webb and City Park Golf Course. Three formats for play will be followed: scramble, modified alternate shot, and better ball. Family members include an adult related or within a household with a junior ages 6-17. There will be league play and a championship round; the intended purpose is to create an interest in developing a larger and regular on-going league. In June and July junior and adult special pricing will be in effect; check with Pro Shop during the summer.

Beat the Pro League

Players will accumulate points during the month with prizes awarded at the end. There will be an orientation held on July 23 and 27 at Santa Maria Golf Course at 6 p.m. to explain how the league will operate. Players will have to establish a scoring average that will establish their personal par; look for details on personal par at golf shops during the month of July. League play will be conducted at Santa Maria each Tuesday evening, at either Webb or Dumas on Thursday evenings, and at City Park on Saturday mornings. Tee times will be assigned. Look for flyers in the Pro Shops this summer for further details.
