||2017 EWGA Eastern Shore Chapter
(Formerly Working Ladies)
Captain: Jackie Mack at firstname.lastname@example.org
Co-Captain: Nancy Dofflemyer at email@example.com
Welcome to the Sunset League, formerly known as the Working Ladies League! No, you don’t have to work to play in this league. It was designed for those ladies who are unable to play golf earlier in the day.
We will be playing at Lighthouse Sound. No handicap is required to start the league, but we are encouraging you to establish your handicap throughout the season or if you have your handicap established already, work on improving your game and lowering your handicap. We will play 9 holes every Tuesday with a Shotgun start at 5:15pm. Cost is $25 (this price is only for this league). We will tee off according to your skill level of the game; this will help keep the pace of play on the golf course. The more experienced golfers will tee off first to lead the pace on the golf course. If you are a new golfer and you prefer to start the season just playing 7 or 8 holes, have fun & enjoy the game. League play this season is $35.00 for one league and includes our End of Season Celebration. There is $10.00 fee for each additional league that you join. The End of Season Celebration is scheduled for September 7, 2017 at Ocean Pines Yacht Club.
Our first play date is Tuesday, May 30, 2017. There’s a meeting at 5:00 p.m. that day for Rules and Regulations for all League Members and we will golf immediately after.
You need to be at your cart 15 minutes PRIOR to your tee time. The Sunset League competition/end of the season prize will be awarded to Most Improved player. Eligibility for the prize is 50% attendance during the official season that runs June 1-Aug. 31, 2017.
You need to remember to enter your scores into the EWGA Handicap program on the EWGA website after EVERY game you play, or whatever system you currently use to maintain your handicap.
Guest Policy – you are allowed to bring a guest, but are limited to two times only for that person during the season.
Information to Remember: Every Wednesday you will receive an Evite regarding details on our league play for the following week. PLEASE RSVP either YES or NO by Saturday at 2 p.m.
For those interested, we will enjoy a cocktail and/or light fare immediately following our 9-hole play in Lighthouse Sound restaurant/lounge.
Please let me know in advance if you have to cancel. It is time consuming to put the foursomes together and we would appreciate your cooperation on this. If you do not abide by the cancellation policy, you will be issued a warning. On the 3rd occurrence, you will be removed from the league.
Rain: In case of light rain, we will golf. If there is lightning and/or heavy downpour, golf will be canceled. If in doubt, call the golf course 410-641-1189. A decision to cancel will be made by 2:00 p.m. on the day of golf.
Golf Etiquette and Rules for Pace of Play:
- Park the cart toward the back of the green;
- Play ready golf;
- Record your score at the next hole;
- Don’t talk when you or someone else is hitting;
- Carry the clubs you’ll most likely use when approaching your ball;
- Pick up your ball after you have reached your maximum strokes (Equitable), so we can keep the pace of play moving;
- Hit as soon as the group in front of you is out of range;
- Drop your cart partner off at her ball or park between each played ball;
- Hit a provisional ball whenever you think your ball may have gone out of bounds.
Look forward to a great golf season. Feel free to call us with any question you might have. And always check the EWGA website: www.ewgaeasternshore.com or the e-Newsletter for all golf events and other activities.
