EWGA Social Hour and Information Session

Rally your friends and join us on Tuesday, March 10, at Bellevue's Total Wine & More store for a free informational social with snacks and soft drinks. 

The socializing starts at 6 pm and after folks get through the Bellevue traffic and arrive, we'll start an informal presentation plus Q&A at around 6:30.  This is a great opportunity to re-connect with your fellow members and to introduce your friends to the fun of the EWGA!

If at least 15 people RSVP, those who are interested will be treated to a free tasting of Washington wines at 7:30 by Total Wine. So, RSVP NOW with your name and the names of your guests, and we'll see you March 10!

2015 Tee-Off is April 11 - Registration Now Open

Our traditional start to the season, the EWGA Seattle Tee-Off Brunch, has been set for Saturday, April 11, at Foster Golf Links in Tukwila. This is the time to invite friends who are interested in learning more about EWGA, and to re-connect with your EWGA friends! There will be vendor tables to peruse and lots of prizes to win!

 Brunch will be followed by an optional 9-hole scramble event. Brunch starts at 9 am and costs $35 for buffet breakfast; register here for brunch. Those who attend the brunch are also eligible to join in the optional 9-hole scramble golf event which has a first tee time at noon and costs $30. Cart is not included; this is a flat, walkable course. Register here for golf (you must register for brunch first). Registration deadline for both events is March 30; those registering by March 17 will receive two extra tickets to our many prize drawings!

We could always use help making this event a success, so if you'd like to volunteer, please let Lynne Uyehara or Laurie Pearson. Volunteers are needed to help in both the planning of the event (centerpieces, goody bags, etc.) and on day-of-event help such as registration, selling drawing tickets, welcoming prospective members, etc.

2015 Leagues Almost Finalized

Each season, the most popular offerings by EWGA Seattle are the weekday/weeknight leagues. This season we will start league play the week of April 27 and we expect to offer 11 choices for golf Monday-Thursday, with most leagues teeing off 9 holes at 5:15 pm. Some of the leagues will require pre-registration for each of the four five-week sessions. Many members prefer this approach because if they pre-pay their money they are more likely to get out of the office and onto the course. For others, their lives are just too unpredictable to commit to a 5-week block; for them, we offer a few "Week-to-week/drop-in" leagues, with a range of courses, days and tee times.

For full details on the league locations, dates and costs, visit the Weekly Leagues page of the web site.

This is the Year to Try Match Play!

 

Have you watched the Ryder Cup or Solheim Cup and wondered what match play is all about? Or maybe you've fallen in love with it and want to play more. This season is your chance! Match play is a fun format in which each hole is a new competition.

We are planning several match play opportunities this year, including:

  • The May 9 fun play event at West Seattle will offer a match play option
  • June 6 clinic at Harbour Pointe is a Workshop and Match Play mingle
  • New this year...a two-person match play member tournament. Sign-up and details will be available soon. Register by finding a playing partner, paying $20 into a prize fund and providing your handicaps. A tournament bracket will be set up and then players will take care of scheduling their match dates and courses. 
These will be great chances to determine if you'd like to put your name in as a member of the EWGA Seattle team that will compete versus other chapters for the EWGA Cup.
