The Apache Junction Parks and Recreation Golf League on May 5 began 13 weeks of golf Tuesday mornings at Apache Creek Golf Course, 3401 S. Ironwood Drive in Apache Junction.

The registration fee is $5 and the weekly greens fee is $20.

The golf league is open to both men and women.

Scoring will help to establish the handicap each player will use to score his or her weekly play, according to a press release.

Players schedule their own tee times each week for 7:30 a.m. and later.

They will earn points for winning any of the weekly contest holes, shooting within stroke ranges and below par on holes.

Players who miss a few weeks of the league need to golf a minimum five weeks to qualify for the tournament and points.

Those who would like to play with a group but are not part of one can e-mail ggartner@ajcity.net or call 480-474-5119 and to be matched up individuals to form a group.
Registration is accepted in the parks and recreation office, online at www.ajcity.net/register, or at the course.
