What is the Women's Rosebowl?

It is a partners, better ball, net score championship.  Each player may play the hole and the team takes the better net score between the two balls played.  The fun thing with the format is a player does not have to score every hole.  She can rely on her partner and visa versa. 

 

If you are looking for some fun this summer we encourage you to find a partner (even from a different club) and participate.  See you on the links in 2016.      

Summer Interns join Golf Saskatchewan

Mikaela was born and raised in Saskatoon. She is also at the University of Saskatchewan obtaining her bachelor's degree in marketing. Mikaela grew up playing golf at the lake and is ready to get back into the game.
 
Spencer is originally from the
town of Watson. He is currently attending the University of Saskatchewan and pursuing his bachelor's degree in finance. Spencer developed a love for the game at an early age. His favorite course in Saskatchewan is the Humboldt Golf Club.
