Weekly Leagues Under Way; Choose From 12 Locations!

EWGA Seattle Chapter League Play is a weekly organized golf (9 holes unless otherwise noted) at different courses throughout the Seattle area; it is fun, non-competitive play. This year we start late April and end in the middle of September. There are two types of leagues from which to choose:

"Session" Leagues
--A member can sign up for any or all of the four five-week sessions of play, registering for the session and paying in advance. Many members prefer this structure because the commitment ensures they get themselves out onto the course…they've signed up so they show up! If you are unable to make one of the five weeks of the session, the league coordinator provides a "sub list" for contact, and your sub pays you for the night you miss.

"Drop-In" Leagues--Also again this year we will offer a few "drop-in leagues". For these leagues, players contact the league coordinator at least two days in advance of play to confirm their spot for that week's round, and then pay at the course when they check in. Members who have unpredictable work schedules may prefer this format.New this year for those who have calendar flexibility, we have added two MORNING Drop-in Leagues. Though these are called "drop-in" leagues, it's important to tell the coordinator that you intend to show up!Each course has its own start time and number of tee times reserved for EWGA players.

Each League also has one or two Coordinators that arrange foursomes, coordinate any changes with the courses and generally make sure you have a good time. Although League Play is only open to EWGA members, guests are welcome to play twice (two nights) before joining EWGA. In addition to golf, most Leagues get together after each night of play for dinner or drinks to socialize and tell tall tales of golf. Please see the 
League FAQ to learn more about our very popular leagues.

For the 2014 season (April-Sept), leagues will be held at the following courses.

Check out Match Play and a Chance for the 2014 EWGA Cup!

A few years ago, the EWGA began a regional and national match play competition, named the EWGA Cup.  Seattle EWGA has had a team competing each of the past 3 years, and is looking for interested members to form a team or teams for the 2014 EWGA Cup. These weekend events are a great chance to try out this format and see if you might like to join a team for this year!

The 2013 Emerald City Stix Chix took second place nationally in the EWGA Cup!

 

Each team is made up of eight women.  Both the regional and national events are two days: 

Day One:  Four –Ball, a match in which two players from team A each play their own ball against two players from team B playing their own balls.  Who ever has the lowest net score for that hole wins a point for their team.  Points are awarded by hole, the match is won by winning the most points.

Day Two:  Singles match play – one-on-one play, points awarded by winning the hole.

There are two stages of this competition, beginning with Cup Qualifiers at various locations across the US. Seattle’s qualifying event is September 13-14 at the Westin Mission Hills Course, Rancho Mirage, California

 

The top teams from each Cup Qualifier then meet at the EWGA Cup Championship December 7-8 at Troon North Golf Club, in Scottsdale, Arizona. 

 

Our 2013 team captain Pam Gale will be assisting with building the team(s) for this year’s EWGA Cup. Email Pam with questions or to express your interest in participating.   

There is also some very good information about The EWGA Cup and match play competition that can be found at EWGA.com.  (Log in, select Member Clubhouse, then select The EWGA Cup)
