ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS -- WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We will have many new members signing up at our Kick-Off on April 9th and these members will be participating in our two-hour clinic.  Being new to the game, many of them will not have clubs.  Did anyone get new clubs for the new season?  Please try to help us out.  If you have new clubs and still have your old clubs, we need them for our new members.  Please get in touch with Beth Deeley, our Member Services Director at:  410-251-7457 or bdeeley67@mac.com.

EWGA EASTERN SHORE AND YOU

 _________________________________________ 

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.

OUR FEATURED SPONSOR

 

Lois Saraceni and Kirstan 'Dee' Seling started their business, The Pack Women, after they had both been assisting many friends and family members with their packing because they couldn’t handle the emotional impact of doing so or distance made it difficult if not impossible for them to handle on their own.

 

Through their experience, they also discovered that they could accomplish more things quicker by bringing a team of two or more depending on the size of the job or the timeframe needed for completion.

 

The Pack Women offer packing services as well as organizational needs such as figuring out what to keep, sell, donate or trash in order to reduce the amount of “stuff” that has accumulated over the years.

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.
