CAL CUP

Our 2014 Cal Cup Team! An amazing 2nd day rally gave us a tie for 5th Place! Great Job! Thank you!



From Captain Martha Hagler:

"Our team had a great trip to Santa Clarita for the Cal Cup.  We tied for 6th place out of 12 teams with 2 Alternate Shot  and 7 1/2 individual match play wins.  Four players were new to Cal Cup this year, and contributed to wonderful team camaraderie.  While we played at a very nice facility they have only been watering the tees and greens; on one course we were happy to have dead grass, which was better than the other course that had fairways with almost with no grass.  We came home with a better appreciation of the fairways we still have in this area.  Next year Cal Cup will be at Rancho Canada in Carmel"

BCC - A GREAT DAY FOR A GREAT CAUSE!


We had another successful BCC with over $5k raised!
Thank you to everyone who participated!
And thank you to our sponsor Rombauer Vineyards!

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT


 


Three Cheers for GOLF MART!

Serving our Chapter with locations in San Rafael & Santa Rosa, Golf Mart is one of the best golf stores in the country.  Everything you buy is covered by an amazing 90 day satisfaction guarantee, whereby you may exchange your purchases within 90 days for any reason.

Golf Mart has sponsored EWGA Sonoma Marin Napa for many years, and this year upped the ante to become an ACE sponsor. They will be the title sponsor of our year-end member appreciation event at Windsor, and throughout the year provide us with $2,000 in gift cards, which we use as member prizes.  EWGA-SMN members also receive a 10% discount on merchandise, except for a few “price protected” items.

Be sure to visit Golf Mart for all your golf equipment needs, as well as club fittings & clothes…and thank them for their tremendous support of our Chapter!

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT

 

Welcome our new “Eagle” Sponsor, Rombauer Winery, to EWGA.  This support came to us courtesy of our former Chapter President & current member Lynn Sletto, who is Rombauer’s Corporate Counsel & Director of Human Resources.  As part of their sponsorship, Rombauer will be the title sponsor for our Annual Breast Cancer Fundraiser in October.

Did you know Rombauer Winery had a close connection to another famous Rombauer? The winery founder’s great aunt was none other than Irma Rombauer, author of the best selling cookbook “Joy of Cooking”! As you might assume, Rombauer wines pair beautifully with food. Their wines include Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, “Joy” (a late-harvest Chardonnay) & Port. If you’re interested in joining their wine clubs, click here: http://www.rombauer.com/WineClubs

Member benefits include 15% savings on purchases and complimentary tastings for you and three guests per visit.

 

Please be sure to return Rombauer’s support for EWGA by purchasing their delicious wines!
