Chestnut Informational Meeting - Some Notes
We had a great informational meeting at Chestnut Hills on June 12th
We had 18 ladies in attendance and we all learned something new!
Here are the highlights of the evening - please ask any additional questions you have by reaching out to the Board:
Lori discussed handicaps and how to enter them
It requires 5, 18 hole rounds (could be 10 rounds of nine or some combination)
If you have a handicap from another system, for example Pine Valley as some ladies have, it is OK to just continue to use that system to enter your scores. You do not have to also use EWGA. Pick the system that works best for you and enter all your scores there.
Marta reminded everyone to pay your League Fee of $15. Once you have played in either league, go on the website and pay via the League Payment Event – just one time fee
New Business Card Promotion – pay $25 to have your card on the website. Donations will help contributions to member and community non-profit benefits.
Maura – encouraged people to join committees and also run for the board. Also explained the Cici Case award.
Beth – we want to put on more clinics. Asked the group for options as to when – They liked the idea of having the option at league – set up Stroke/Scramble/Clinic
Also, plan to do a rules night. We will be out on the course during league and help with rules.
Any specific questions, send us a note
Jana – weekend events. Shoot for 2-3 weekends a month
The one with Fort Wayne Women’s Golf Association – sign up ends tonight
Many golf weekend events allow guests. We welcome any guests ...husband, kids, friends. If it is EWGA only, it will specify that.
Norma – league
When in doubt, call the course
Put scores in the Ringer book at each course - Start with your first hole-by-hole score
Each week, if you do better on any hole, erase that hole and put your new score.
Prizes will be given at the end of the year for the best 18 hole scores. Your goal is to have a 72 or better by the end of the year – that means you have shot par (or better) at least once, on every hole.
