Indoor Golf League

Central Oregon Indoor Golf

 

A regular Indoor Golf practice is a good way to keep your game up during the cold Winter months

without having to worry about the weather!

 

Date/Time:     Every Monday 5:30 pm

Cost:              $15 for 9 holes

Location:       Central Oregon Indoor Golf

 

Team play - some scrambles,
some match play

 

There are two decks, so the first 8 players to arrive will play for the night. We have 12 members committed to playing at this point. If we have enough interest, then we could possibly do another tee time for those who can play earlier than 5:30.


For fun, we’ll have KP and Long Drive
contests and social events!

Dan will provide instruction and track your progress through the season.

 

Central Oregon Indoor Golf also has leagues where players compete as teams.  If you are interested, please contact Dan for more information at  (541) 633-7277.

President's Message

 
    I know the weather has been a bit on the wild side these past few weeks but we still have Saturday golf events scheduled through the entire month of March. This is a great time to get out and play golf at reduced rates while getting a head start on the season. If you haven't joined us come out and give it a try!!

 
    April is just around the corner which means time for our 7th Annual Kick-Off Brunch at Juniper Golf Course. This event has a little bit of everything to offer and it is open to members & guests. Please save the date Saturday April 12 and be thinking of a friend or friends that want to be part of a fun group of women golfers.

Membership News

More about our EWGA members that have attracted new members for our Central Oregon Chapter of EWGA:

Diane Kirpach:
    “I've known Hallie Dew for many years through mutual friends and knew that she was a part-time golfer like me. I thought EWGA would provide an opportunity for us to play together and improve our game, and a good way for her to network her real estate business to other women.”

Paula Killion:
    “I've known Sue Mullen for a number of years. She married a good friend of mine & my husband's that we knew from when we all lived in Southern California. After they decided to retire up here & buy a house, we invited them to stay with us while they looked.
    Soon after they moved here, I was notified of the EWGA end-of-the-year party. Sue had only moved in a couple weeks before, but, thinking she might like to meet some very nice ladies, I invited her to come with me to the party. While there, Vicky Thomas, as the new president, gave a little talk about EWGA and invited any guests attending the party to join. Sue joined.
    So I'm thinking maybe it was Vicky's charm and persuasive enthusiasm for EWGA that convinced Sue! I just invited her to the party.”

Linda Kelly:
    “I met Staci Carsten when she joined EWGA in 2012 at the Kickoff and she was delightful. She ended up needing to take some time away and to my surprise, she called one day and said she was ready to get back to golf and wanted to rejoin. She was invited to our October recruiting event and is now getting quite involved as our chair for the sponsorship committee. She will be a great asset for our Chapter!
    Kathy Kemper-Green is a vivacious and fun lady that I became acquainted with over the past several years through Network of Entrepreneurial Women. I would often talk about my affiliation with EWGA and promote our Chapter for anyone wanting to learn and play golf. Kathy called one day and said, "I just bought some golf clubs. Now what do I do?” Of course, my recommendation was to begin with lessons and join our Chapter.”

Share Your Love of the Game

Every year EWGA offers a Membership Campaign with prizes from Nike Golf. In 2013, the campaign was titled, Share Your Love of the Game and six EWGA CO members were recognized for bringing in new members: Betty Marshall, Delores Pliska, Diane Kirpach, Linda Kelly, Paula Killion and Shari Noldge. For their efforts, these active members were given a Swedge from Nike.

 New Year – New You

     Except for a few warm and sunny spots, the weather has not been welcoming to golfers who are anxious to get out on the course. The Polk County, FL Chapter shared some good ideas in a recent newsletter to help you get ready for your first outing:

 

    Ø Empty your golf bag and take stock
    Ø Throw out any broken, old, unused items
    Ø Clean your club heads and grips with a little soap and water
    Ø If your grips are smooth, consider re-gripping them
    Ø Replace old shoes – or at least install some new spikes
    Ø Put new tees and balls in the bag, along with a new golf glove
