PRESIDENT'S CORNER

I love golf because it gives me a chance to be one with nature – to feel the warmth of the sun, or glimpse a hawk flying in the blue sky above – and to be with friends.  Why do you love golf? 

 

EWGA is the perfect place to play golf with other women, make new friends, and enrich and strength the bonds with old friends.  I hope you will make playing with EWGA a priority this year.  Won’t you come and join us?  The possibility of that perfect shot – a hole in one -- is only a game away! 

 

 EWGA Fort Worth - We take fun seriously!

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.

PACE OF PLAY: TIPS TO KEEP IT MOVING

Being a short hitter isn’t the cause of slow play, being inaccurate however does add time to the round. What you do – or fail to do – between shots sets the pace of play, not the number of strokes you take.

Following the guidelines below will keep things moving along smoothly, earning you the approval of the marshal and the gratitude of the group behind you. 

Things you can do to keep up the pace of play:

  • Before starting the round, load up your pockets with tees, divot repair tool, ball markers and an extra ball.
  • Play “ready golf”: whoever is ready to hit, goes ahead – especially shorter hitters who can’t reach the group ahead.
  • Develop a concise pre-shot routine and limit the number of practice swings you take.
  • If you think your ball may be lost or out of bounds, hit a provisional ball, so you don’t have to go back.
  • Limit the time you search for a lost ball.
  • When riding a cart, drop off your partner at her ball and proceed to yours. If you’re the one riding along, take several clubs with you and start walking down the fairway after you’ve hit instead of waiting to be picked up.
  • If you’re playing into the green, take your putter with you as well so you don’t have to go back to the cart.
  • Leave your bag or cart on the side of the green that is towards the next tee.
  • Study your putting line while others are putting and hole out instead of marking your ball.
  • The first one to put out, picks up the flagstick and replaces it when everyone is done.
  • Don’t linger on the green to mark your score card. Proceed to the next tee and mark cards there.

    And the best way to keep up the pace of play? Always, ALWAYS
     keep up with the group ahead of you!

OUT AND ABOUT

April 19th, 2015 at Texas Star golf course was, as usual, beautiful and we had great weather for the day.  We had 20 ladies play golf and enjoy visiting in Raven’s Grill when the round was over.  The format was scoring on the best 9 holes for one prize and lowest putts for the second.  Some impressive scores resulted.   Joanna Cloud won lowest putts with 29 (great job).  We had a 3 way tie for best nine holes @ 37;  Diann Goodman,  Allison Gearhart, and Rebecca Turner (Joanna’s guest).   All winners will receive $15.00 in Chapter Bucks. Thank you ladies and looking forward to seeing you next month!!

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!
