The annual EWGA Myrtle Beach Chapter Kickoff on March 23 combined 9 holes of golf, appetizers, drinks, prizes and lots of socializing at Pine Lakes Golf Course.

Over 50 ladies attended the event which come off successfully after the rain stopped before play began on the first hole.

2013 Scramble with a Pro

On August 24th, our members played in a scramble tournament at Flounders Club. What made this a special event was that each team had a local golf pro as a member.

Although there were only bragging rights for the scramble winners, there were two members who won closest to the pin: Carol Gray, hole 3 and Diana McLellan, hole 16.

Everyone had a great time thanks to Dianne Atkinson who planned the program and arranged for the Pros.

Pace of Play from the President of of EWGA Myrtle Beach

Slow Pace of Play has struck our EWGA chapter! As stewards of the game of golf and as leaders in representing women on the golf course, we pride ourselves in maintaining a satisfactory pace of play with a goal of 4.5 hours per round.

You should be always be ready to hit when the forward group has moved on. If you need a few helpful hints for faster play, please familiarize yourself with time-savings tips found in the new Player Handbook and make them part of your regular game.

Helpful Hint: If you can’t see the group in front of you, you're probably playing too slow! If you’re having problems and start falling behind more than one hole, be considerate and invite the EWGA group behind you to play through.

EWGA Myrtle Beach Handbooks

The Myrtle Beach Chapter has just published a handbook that describes:

Our mission and goals,
Activities we organize,
How to sign up for events,
Recommended etiquette practices, and
Frequently used rules with explanations and examples.

It also has a convenient table of contents.

The Handbook is available to all members. Contact either Carol Gray, cjgray22@gmail.com, or Jan Louthain, alexie8@aol.com, for a copy. Get one for your golf bag!

Mission Statement by 2013 President, Louise Goodman

The mission of the Chapter is to connect women to learn, play, and enjoy golf not only for fun and competition but as a means to improving business skills and contacts. Membership satisfaction is the overriding purpose of our Chapter.

The Myrtle Beach Chapter is an extension of the national EWGA and our goal is to advance the philosophy and mission of the EWGA in the Grand Strand area in South Carolina.
