League Captain Spotlight

 

 

 

 

 

Captain Anne McBride – Spring and Fall Leagues at Bear Trap.

Located in Ocean View, Delaware, the beautiful community of Bear Trap Dunes has 3 nine-hole golf courses.  Our chapter is fortunate to have 2 leagues at this great location.  Anne McBride captains these 2 leagues, one in the spring and another in the fall. 

Anne lived in Garden, City New York, where she worked as an athletic director and coach. She has continued coaching lacrosse and field hockey at Indian River High School since she moved to Delaware. In addition, Anne works in the pro Shop at Bear Trap Dunes and oversees our leagues there.  Fifty members signed up for the league this spring.  Anne cites the casual and welcoming atmosphere at Bear Trap as reasons for the success of these leagues.  "The course is very woman friendly and the women who play here have fun," says Anne.  

Many thanks to Anne for making golf at Bear Trap such a positive experience for our members.

What happens when you make your hole-in-one?  First you do your happy dance!  
And then you realize you want to spread the word and be recognized.

Through our partnership with Troon Golf, any member who makes a hole-in-one during an EWGA-sponsored event receives a complimentary round of golf for four at a Troon Golf facility.

You just need to send a copy of your scorecard, attested by your playing partners, and verified by the club’s Golf Professional (if possible).  Also include the yardage of the hole, the hole number, and the golf club you used to make the shot.

Send your information to
amanda_hoey@ewga.com and she will coordinate with Troon to have your certificate for your complimentary golf sent to you – as well as get you posted as an inductee of the Hole-in-One Club on the EWGA website!

Also, be sure to let one of the Chapter board members know about it so we can publicize it in our newsletter.

History of the Eastern Shore Chapter


Back in 1996, there were many corporate golf outings being held at the courses in Ocean City and surrounding areas of the Eastern Shore of Maryland, but the players were mostly men.  There were hundreds of women who aspired to play in corporate outings but just didn't feel their 'game' was up to par. 

 

Nancy Dofflemyer saw this as an opportunity to bring the game of golf to the Women of the Eastern Shore.

 

The first membership meeting of the Eastern Shore Chapter of EWGA was held on August 14, 1996, at River Run Golf Course.

 

In September of 1997, our chapter celebrated its one-year anniversary.  We exceeded our fifty person membership goal and were recognized by National EWGA as one of the four chapters who surpassed its renewal membership rate of seventy percent.

 

Also in 1997, our chapter was the pioneer in teaming up with the American Cancer Society and held a successful golf tournament, surpassing a goal of $15,000, with all proceeds going toward the fight against breast cancer.

 

Today, our chapter continues to pursue the same goals that were set by our Board back in 1996.  One of the major goals being:  "To create opportunities for women of every ability level to bond, network and enjoy the game of golf."

 

We currently maintain a strong membership that exceeds 300 and work diligently to promote leagues, clinics and social events to bring more women into our organization.
