Letter from Chapter President, Barb Azzaretti

On behalf of the Board of Directors, and myself let me wish you a very healthy and happy New Year.

I am excited to serve as your chapter President, and along with the Board, am looking forward to an exciting and fun year of golf events.

In keeping with EWGA core values, we will continue to sponsor and hold all the required events as well as make you aware of offerings from national as they become available. We will continue to promote the networking and mentoring services that all of our years of experience can offer to young women in the local communities.

In addition, we are diligently planning for our member tournaments and competition in Interclub and against other area chapters.

Our website will be undergoing a face lift and will continue to hold all the information you will need for scheduling, upcoming events and local news.

The first change to the website is the elimination of the sign-up page. This site has been overlooked on occasion, which unfortunately created confusion for both members and hostesses. Our plan is to have one hostess named as the primary contact person in order to ensure all names are collected for weekly events.

One of the major goals this year will be to increase membership. I am exploring different promotion avenues to gain broader exposure. However, current members can help gain exposure using our kick-off meeting, scheduled on March 22 at Pine Lakes. A nine hole golf event followed with refreshments. Please save the date and remember to invite family, friends and neighbors who love to play and want to meet fun, exciting women.

A full calendar of dates, places and event leaders will be available on the February website.

Of course, none of these events will be possible without help from the membership. Several ladies have volunteered but more are needed to ensure successful events and programs! Member/Member, Member/Guest and Interclub events can use more help in acquiring prizes, arranging lunches and helping on the day of the event. Please let me know if you are willing to help out.

As always, if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions please feel free to contact me at

Looking forward to our chapters continued success.

White Team Wins First EWGA Solheim Cup in Myrtle Beach

The first EWGA Solheim Cup was held on Saturday, Oct. 4 at Arrowhead Country Club and was heralded by all participating members as a major success.

Serving as the two captains for this fun competition were Louise Goodman, Chapter President, and Barb Cleghorn, winner of the 2014 Wednesday league Match Play.

The first 9-hole competition was Alternate Shot. Two team members paired to compete against two members of the opposing team. Each team determined which member would tee off on even numbered holes and who would tee off on odd numbered holes. And, the second 9-hole competition was individual Match Play.

Congratulations to Barbara Cleghorn, White Team Captain, and her team for a strong rally and win. While several matches came down to the final match play hole in determining winners, Barb’s team was able to win several matches and soundly beat the Blue Team.

Alternate Shot (First 9 holes)
Blue Team: 4.5
White Team: 2.5

Match Play (Second 9 Holes)
Blue Team: 14.5
White Team: 6.5
