About The Fort Worth Metroplex Chapter

EWGA Fort Worth/Metroplex Chapter has approximately 70 members who live and work in Fort Worth, Arlington, Mid-Cities, and surrounding communities. Our all-volunteer board works hard to ensure we are providing our members with a great golfing experience through the leagues, events, and education opportunities offered. Whether you're a new golfer looking for a welcoming environment to properly learn the game, or an experienced golfer seeking the challenge of competition, we offer events and activities to meet your needs.

Our Chapter organizes a variety of events, clinics, and socials each year, where the focus is always on fun. Activities include new golfer clinics, league play, monthly golf events, chapter championship, networking functions, member-guest events, charity tournaments and, of course, the infamous Lone Star Cup!

With almost half of our members in key management positions, you'll also find an ideal environment for networking with other businesswomen in a friendly atmosphere.

Whether you're looking for an occasional round of informal golf, or a chance to play regularly with other avid golfers, the Executive Women's Golf Association provides those opportunities. We invite you to join us to have fun, network and help support us as we bring a new level of dignity and respect to women's golf.

VOLUNTEERS / LEADERSHIP

Volunteers are important to the success of the Fort Worth/Metroplex EWGA.

"Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one's ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them"...Harriet Naylor

Feeling inspired? Want to get involved, but don't know where to start? Joining a committee or volunteering for an event is a great way to meet members. We're all busy women, but it is very satisfying, and just plain fun, to work with and get to know other women who enjoy this challenging game as much as we do.

Contact us to learn more about how you can get involved and make things happen.

HANDICAPS

The purpose of the USGA Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis.

Having a handicap index allows golfers to participate in more events (those that require a handicap index), have a measurable means of tracking improvement, and allows score adjustments to even the playing field when playing with golfers of different skill levels.

OUT AND ABOUT

Deborah Nesselrodt, one of our chapter's new members this year, got her THIRD hole in one on Saturday, July 26, at Mansfield National Golf Club.  According to witnesses Eric Tom and John Cole"The shot flew high and straight, landed 4 or 5 feet short of the hole and trickled right into the cup. It was a thing of beauty, no fluke hole-in-one here!"   Deborah used a 9-iron on the 89-yard hole #14, and apparently that was perfect club selection!  Congratulations, Deborah!  (But perhaps you could leave some of those holes in one out there for the rest of us!)

A special thanks, too, to Julie Piland, a charter member of our chapter, who served as Tournament Director for this year’s Chapter Championship.  For those of you who haven’t ever been involved in it, there is a lot more involved than you would think, and Julie gave up a lot of her time to make sure our event was a success!

Good luck to all next month in Houston!

2014 Kick off on Thursday March 20 at Ridglea Country Club, Ft. Worth

Sixty members and potential members attended our Chapter Kickoff Event on Thursday, March 20 at Ridglea Country Club.  We had a great time greeting old friends and meeting new ones!  Lots of good information was given out – lots of good prizes,  too… along with the announcement of the Beverly Hawbaker “Heart” Award that will be given at the end of the season to the member who best personifies Bev’s caring and giving spirit.

 

The highlight of the night was when the question was asked, “How many of you joined tonight?”, and  TWENTY-TWO  people raised their hands!  What a great start to our 2014 season!
