Third, SHARE with your friends, local pro, starters etc., that you belong to EWGA and are growing women’s golf in Central Oregon with your participation and alliance with EWGA. Invite them to join or become a sponsor in the future.

Fourth, PARTICIPATE regularly. A simple and attainable goal is to participate in “1” EWGA event every month. Take a look at the calendar, hit the link, push the RSVP button and do it. Take the time for you, to go golf, once a month. Whether it is a clinic, a social event, 9 holes or 18 holes, once a month keeps you as a priority. That feels really good!

Everything we do in our lives is about creating relationships, actively, on a daily basis. If you have questions or ideas on how to spread the word of EWGA, please send me an email and lets discuss. winkzeal@mac.com

September – Fit for Fall - Golf

September is Fit for Fall month! On Monday mornings join us at The Greens. On Tuesdays due to an earlier sunset, we have a 4pm only tee time at Aspen Lakes. On Saturdays we will be playing at Old Back 9, then Brasada, followed by Widgi, and we wrap up the last weekend in September at Tokatee. September is a great month to play golf as the temperatures slowly cool off and the beautiful Fall colors come alive.

2017 Board Elections – Get Out and Vote

Our EWGA Central Oregon board elections take place in September. You will receive a voting ballot via email on September 5. Please show support for your fellow members who have volunteered as Board Members by casting your vote no later than September 20!!

Potluck Socials

Socializing is one of the benefits to golf both on and off the course. During your round of golf with playing partners, its about taking in the scenery, enjoying light conversation and keeping it relaxed. The 19th Hole and our monthly socials give us the opportunity to further connect, unwind, laugh and get to know each other.

In August, we did just that at a potluck at Mary Joanis’ home. Mary BBQed chicken, members brought side dishes and spouses, and together we served up fun and friendship. The board wants to send a special thanks to Mary for hosting the relaxing Sunday afternoon. Many thanks to our members who brought boxes of school supplies for the NeighborImpact Head Start kids.

 

It was such fun; we are doing it again on Sunday, September 18, 4:30pm at Delores Pliska’s home. Click here to RSVP. Bring a Friend, have them sign up as a member – and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a One Year EWGA Membership. And, keep those school supplies coming for the Head Start kids.

 

    

See you on the course!

DON ’ T MISS OUT! TIME IS SLIPPING AWAY TO QUALIFY
FOR A FREE CO EWGA MEMBERSHIP


I mentioned in last month’s newsletter that, for every new person who joins EWGA whom you have recruited from August thru October 15th, your name will go into a dr awing for a chance to have your 2017 dues paid in full. You still have time to invite people. Our drawing will be October 15th.

We have some fun Saturday golf dates ahead. Besides the normal courses we play, we have upcoming dates at Tokatee, Quail Run and Meadow Lakes. There is also a potluck social at the home of Delores Pliska on September 18th.


Read More  

These are all great opportunities to invite a friend or acquaintance. Also invite them to our Monday morning golf dates at 10am and our Tuesday dates at 4pm. It doesn’t matter if they join toward the end of our season, as the membership is for a year from the time they join! And we will have indoor golf during the inclement months of winter.

September is a great time to golf! The weather tends to be cooler then. Honestly, it’s my favorite time of year!

Our EWGA Central Oregon Chapter individual stroke play and scramble team Chapter championships will be hosted by our gracious sponsors, Black Butte Ranch at the Glaze Meadows course, July 9, 2016.

The Chapter Championship is fun and relatively low key with a social afterwards. All you need are TWO requirements to participate.

  1. an established handicap in 2016 through a service such as GHIN; and
  2. two complete 18 round scores recorded this year to your handicap. There are 5 "flights" or experience level categories so every level of golfer can enjoy playing within their current level of play.

Our local central Oregon chapter AND Black Butte Ranch are sponsoring each participant in the chapter championship with $50 toward the national fee. The national fee exists to cover minimal expenses incurred at the Regional and National level tournaments.

THANK YOU! Black Butte Ranch for supporting women’s golf in Central Oregon!
