Chapter Championship. Lots of Ways to Participate

The biggest weekend of our season is coming up in July...our EWGA Seattle Chapter Championship weekend! Whether you plan to compete in the tournament or not (and we hope you do!), there is a way for you to experience the fun and excitement of the weekend of July 18-19 at the Home Course in DuPont. How can you participate?

Play in the July 19 Tournament! Whether you're an experienced tournament player or a newbie, if you have a handicap of 40.4 or better, there is a place for you in the stroke play tournament. The Chapter Championship is flighted, with five separate "flights" based on handicap, so you'll be competing against players with handicaps similar to yours. There is also a 4-woman-team scramble competition which has no maximum handicap limit but does have a team composition requirement. The ewga.com web site has all the details about stroke play and scramble team eligibility and flighting. Cost is $82 to walk or $97 to ride.

Play in the July 18 Fun Play/Practice Round. Whether you're planning to play in the tournament or you just want to play the terrific Home Course, come out for a fun day. This year we're adding a Hole-in-One contest to the prize pot! Tee times start at 11 am. $58 cost does not include cart or range balls; most people find this to be a walkable course. Register here by July 10.

Volunteer at the Chapter Championship! Maybe you're not quite ready to compete in the tournament, but you'd like to see what it's all about. Volunteering is a great way to check it all out and to experience the excitement of tourney day! You'll help in areas such as registration, spotting (where you're assigned to help players keep an eye on their shots) or scoring. Let Mary Herlin know if you'd like to help!

Sponsor a hole!! Whether you have a business you'd like to promote or you just want to send a message of support to participants, a hole sponsorship is a great way to get the word out! For $75 you'll get a sign at one of the holes, and the opportunity for signage/promotional materials at a table in the banquet room. Contact Karen Snepp for more information or to sign up!

2015 Weekend Events

The 2015 Season is taking shape for golfing fun!  Check out our social and weekend pages for what we have in store for the season, registration is now open. 

Improve Your Game - Sign up for The Chipping Clinic

Our EWGA Clinics are a great way to learn or refine golf skills! And, if you're thinking about taking lessons, they also provide a great way to meet local instructions and see if their philosophy and teaching approach is a good fit!

Chipping Clinic & Contest 
Harbour Pointe Golf Club
Saturday, July 11 1:00-3:30 pm

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.  Join PGA pro Chris Aoki to learn the keys to good chipping, and then apply them in a fun post-clinic contest, followed by social time at her teaching academy. Chris's philosophy is embraces that of the EWGA: "Making golf easy and fun!"

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!
