Camaraderie, Competition and Championships
The Sun City Shadow Hills Women’s Golf Club (WGC) was founded in 2005 by residents Nancy Maxwell, Becky Wilcox, Karen Roche, and Ellen Proebstel. From the 20 original members, the club has grown to an annual enrollment of approximately 200 members. The WGC plays each Wednesday, during high-season November through May. Members may choose to play golf from either the gold or silver tees. The results for each week’s competition are based on individual handicaps and the number of players participating.
The WGC enjoys the camaraderie of the members and the special events scheduled throughout the season. Some annual events include a Welcome Back Social for all returning members, the Silver Bells Holiday Play Day, a special two-day Guest Event where members invite women golfers from other clubs. The Princess Tournament for best net player and Club Champion for best gross score player is held each year. In addition, there is the Babes versus Dudes match play against the Men’s Golf Club and the joint Classy Niners and WGC Annual Play Event.
