Put These 2015 Events on Your Calendar!

Early dates are hitting the calendar for 2015, so start planning now! 
More being added, so keep checking back here and on the EWGA Seattle Facebook Page

February 27-March 1: Seattle Golf Show, CenturyLink Events Center.  Volunteers are always needed to help on the show floor! By providing volunteers for the show organizers, EWGA Seattle gets a deal on its booth space. And volunteers get free entry to the show, so it's a win-win! Round up friends and family, volunteer, then walk the show floor. Be sure to stop by the EWGA booth and say hi!

Tuesday, March 10: FREE EWGA Social Hour and Information Session, Total Wine & More, Bellevue, 6:30-8. This is a great chance to introduce friends to EWGA before the Tee-Off. We'll take over the classroom in back of the Total Wine store, offering snacks, soft drinks and information. Join us after 6. Program will get under way around 6:30 with some background info regarding EWGA and a sneak peek at the 2015 season, followed by Q&A and social time. For those interested, Total Wine will offer a free wine tasting for us at 7:30, and there will be time to shop after that. There is NO CHARGE for this event, but please RSVP to Karen Snepp and let her know who you plan to bring along.

Saturday, April 11: 2015 Tee-Off. More details to follow, but mark your calendar now for our annual brunch and early-season golf event at Tukwila's Foster Golf Links


Northenders--Join in Clubhouse Fun!

Don't let your golf game get rusty in the off-season; play in an indoor league!  This season we've added a league location at Clubhouse Golf Center at Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood.

Using our own clubs and golf balls, we play courses around the world thanks to simulators. Tee time will be 7:00 every Wednesday night starting and we'll play 9 holes.  Plan on getting there around 6:30 so we tee off in time. This league will run from January 7 to February 4. This is a week-to-week league for which you RSVP weekly. Just call the Clubhouse (425-582-9813) and let them know you'll be joining the EWGA group that week.

  

Cost will be dependent on how many people sign up. Normally, the cost is $30/hour on the simulators (we will have 2), however, if we get 4 people signed up each person would pay $15.00. It typically takes about 2 hours to play 9 holes. Food and drinks are available to purchase separately. 

 

If you are interested in joining the fun or learning more, please email league coordinator Laurie Pearson

Dee approaches the green at Southern Hills, OK, course from comfort of Swing Doctors
For those of us who don't like playing in cold and rain, but want to continue to work on our games in the winter, Swing Doctors offers the perfect alternative--indoor golf!!


Using our own clubs and real golf balls, we play the best courses in the world via a simulator that measures the direction and speed of our swing to estimate distance. A screen shows us where our ball is on the "course". Supplemented by snacks and beverages, the stage is always set for a fun nine holes of golf! 

We have teed up a Tuesday evening indoor league at Swing Doctors, on NE 124th St in Kirkland, starting at 5:15 SHARP. Our second session will run from from January 6 till February 3. New this year, every participant will also receive a free individual lesson at Swing Doctors, courtesy owner/teacher Joe Brown. The session is booked, but we often have room for subs ($20 per night), so let Karen Snepp know if you'd like to join the sub list.

Emerald City MatchStix Represent at 2014 EWGA Cup!

A few years ago, the EWGA began a regional and national match play competition, named the EWGA Cup. The Emerald City MatchStix took their talents to steamy Rancho Mirage Sept 13-14 and again qualified for the FINALS of the 2014 EWGA Cup, tying for first and placing second based on a tie-breaker. The team practiced through our sloggy fall and headed to Scottsdale for the finals in early December. The team battled through the weekend and represented EWGA Seattle well, moving up the ranks during the singles matches to finish 12th out of over 30 teams! Way to go, gals! And…they were styled from head to toe:


2014 Emerald City MatchStix Finalists!
Top Row L to R: Diane Ginthner, Capt Pam Gale, Julie Schmitt, Sam Gillett
Front Row L to R: Cherie Litson, Mary Herlin, Laurel Kiichli, Susan Lehr


Each team is made up of eight women.  Both the regional and national events were 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 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). Match Play is a great format! Think about putting in your name for the 2015 team….maybe we'll be able to field TWO teams next year!
