Connect-To-Play FAQ

What is Connect-To-Play?
Connect-To-Play
is a message board that enables EWGA Baltimore members to connect with other members to self-organize rounds of golf.  When someone posts a message to the board, everyone who has opted in or registered will automatically get notified via email. 


How do I register for Connect-To-Play?

From the EWGA-Baltimore.com home page, go to Golf Info/Connect-To-Play click the button that says "JOIN Connect to Play".  To register, provide your email address and indicate how often you want to get notified when someone posts a new message to the message board.   We recommend registering for Real Time notifications so those who want to play can quickly organize groups and get tee times.  You can change it to Daily Digest at any time if you prefer to receive one email a day.  To change your digest or to opt-out, select the JOIN button again, enter your email address and select the option you prefer.

Note:  You must be a member of the EWGA Baltimore Chapter to participate in Connect-To-Play.   If you are not already logged in to the EWGA website as a member, you will automatically be taken to the log in screen and must first enter your EWGA user name and password before you can register for Connect-to-Play.

I would like to include non-members in the foursome I'm creating.  Is this allowed?
