New Golfer/Refresher League

Welcome to the 2017 Season of the EWGA New Golfer/Refresher League!


This league is open to anyone new to the game of golf. No experience is required. And no handicap is needed for this league. It is open to those who have played before and do not feel ready to move on to a different league.  


This league is very special to EWGA Eastern Shore, as we want to introduce and encourage as many women as possible to pursue and enjoy the game of golf.  We understand the anxiety that new golfers experience before getting out on the course to play.  Therefore, we progress in a way to slowly build your skills and thus empower you to get out on the course and have fun! Our use of EWGA mentors on the course enable you to have all your questions answered when they arise.  You will learn pace of play, etiquette and how to develop a handicap.  We will award a prize for the Most Improved at the End of Season Celebration; however, we are confident that everyone will show great progress!


Monday, May 1 - New Golfer /Refresher League begins.

5/1 - 6/12 Every Monday, the league begins with weekly lessons at the Bay Club with the Pro at their range, $15 weekly at 3:45 p.m. for one-hour lesson.


6/12 - 8/28 Every Monday, a lesson along with slow progression on to course play with mentors.  1/2 hour lesson is $8 and partial course play is $12; and then end of season play is $20 for nine holes.


Every Wednesday, you will receive an Evite regarding the details of our league for the next week.  Please RSVP - yes or no - by Saturday of that week.  You must cancel by calling or emailing one of the Captains by Sunday if you cannot play. If you do not cancel you will receive a warning.  This is necessary, as we must give the golf club enough notice as to how many will play. On the 3rd warning, you will be removed from the league.


Please arrive 15 minutes early.  This gives you time to drop off your clubs, park and go to the Pro shop to pay.  (A suggested tip for the bag guys -$1-2)

Rain: In case of light rain, we will golf.  If there is lightening or a heavy downpour, golf will be cancelled. If in doubt, please call the course.  A decision to cancel will be made by 3:15 on the day of play.  


Our goal is for you to enjoy an encouraging environment, a worthwhile experience and Lots of Fun!
