The Pusch Ridge Golf Course now has four weekly leagues playing its breathtakingly beautiful course under the Friends of Pusch Ridge (FOPRG) ‘umbrella.’
The Quails, a 30+ year old women's golf league whose home course has been Pusch Ridge for nearly as long, has recently elected to become the fourth league within FOPRG. The Quails voted to associate with FOPRG to help promote community through the game of golf and (like our other three leagues) joined us to work to keep Pusch Ridge open past this third provisional year. The Quails play every Tuesday throughout the year at Pusch when the course is open and at the El Conquistador courses over the summer if Pusch is closed.
The Quails is a members-only league of up to 60 handicapped members. Whereas it is perhaps more competitive than FOPRG's Thursday morning women's group (the Flycatchers), it is a fun group that enjoys socializing as much as playing golf. After their Tuesday morning shotgun starts, you can find The Quails socializing at local restaurants and showing support for the Oro Valley community. On any given Tuesday, 30-45 Quails take to the course. (Visit them here.)
The Thursday women's group (the Flycatchers) has up to 30 ladies a week who enjoy a 9 a.m. shotgun with perhaps less stress concerning scorekeeping. They, too, want to see Pusch Ridge continue to thrive.
The men's Monday group (the Javelinas), gather on the patio above the pro shop at Pusch for conversation, food and beverages after each scramble as they review their morning successes. This league has its own set of rules and handicap system and is so popular that new membership is currently closed. Nearly 48 members play each week.
The league with the largest membership, 160 golfers, is the Wednesday afternoon Prickly Pairs. This co-ed casual group fields some 48 players every week for a fun shotgun scramble. This league promotes and supports FOPRG’s four partner restaurants (The Landing, Firetruck Brewing Co., Fork & Fire, and The Hoppy Vine) in the Oro Valley community. Each week, after their play, the group has a happy hour and prize distribution at one of these restaurants!
FOPRG welcomes The Quails and is excited to have them as part of our golfing community!
