A concerted effort is underway to strengthen the presence of women’s golf at Charbonneau. The Pro Shop will be supporting events designed to create more opportunities for ALL WOMEN who want to play golf at Charbonneau. These events are planned for Charbonneau Club members as well as any woman who works during the week or has other obligations prohibiting her playing with the organized clubs. Membership is NOT required in order to participate and non-resident golfers are encouraged to join in the fun. Listed below are events planned to assist in bringing women golfers together for fun and skill development, as well as helping to improve the business of golf at Charbonneau.
