Improve Your Game - Chipping Clinic

Chipping Clinic & Contest 
Harbour Point Golf Club
Saturday, July 11 1:00-3:30 pm
Register by July 3rd

Chipping can be frustrating if the ball goes screaming across the green or doesn’t even make the green.  Simple knowledge and a little supervised practice is all you need to get good ball contact and controllable distance.

Tee-Off Brunch Features Kathy G-Jensen



What a treat for our Tee-Off brunch attendees to meet and listen to 2014 PGA National Teacher of the Year Kathy G-Jensen, 
the first woman in PGA History to win this award and the first from the PNWPGA Section (1 out of 28,000 PGA members nationally). Kathy shared her experiences with us and reminded us all that "Golf is AWESOME!" When asked for a tip or two, she pointed out that many women take things quite literally, so guidance such as "Keep the Left Elbow Straight" can be a hindrance to our swing development. When looking for a golf teacher, make sure to find someone with whom you can communicate!

After perusing vendor tables, meeting new friends and catching up with old friends and enjoying brunch, attendees were welcomed by EWGA Seattle president Mary Herlin. She introduced the assistant director of the First Tee of Greater Seattle, Kimberly Goode, who brought along two member ambassadors and reinforced how important the organization is for teaching not only golf but also off-course values.

Following the brunch, many attendees took to the Foster Golf Links course for a 9-hole scramble. Despite the breezy weather and one hole of a rain squall, everyone seemed glad to get the season under way.

Thanks to all the volunteers, vendors and sponsors who made our 2015 Tee-Off a terrific success!
