Leagues are where we meet and play!

Our evening leagues include beginner, intermediate and advanced to be inclusive to all members. We believe we can improve integrating new members into our organization with volunteers in our leagues to meet, play and assist the new member with her assimilation into our evening league. The ladies 18 holes will remain for intermediate/advanced players.

Secondly, substitutes will have the option to be universal/roving with all evening leagues, if they would like to play other courses. The benefit would be two fold, the extension of friendship play, and filling “cancellation” openings of evening leagues. New to our leagues..... check them out here. Check out our league policies here. Our leagues start the week of April 11, 2016 and end the week of September 29, 2016.  Sign up online here

News from your President

 

Dear Fellow EWGA Members –

As outgoing President of this diverse and vibrant Central PA Chapter, I want to take this opportunity to thank the Directors and all our members who so willingly chaired committees, attended meetings and embraced the EWGA values throughout this past year.  It was through your efforts and love for the game, that you have helped us attain one of the primary goals of the EWGA – to engage other women to learn about, play and enjoy golf for both business and pleasure.

Because of your efforts, I am proud to report that our Chapter achieved the goals established in the 2015 Chapter Playbook we developed earlier this year – including a number of other notable accomplishments which included, but are not limited to:

  • The development of our enhanced Chapter Website thanks to the expertise of Rachel Allen – as well as developing our ability to make on-line payments with the able assistance of Deb Smoluk.

  • The planning and delivery of our Chapter’s Member & Recruitment Events by Chris Maffey, who has always extended her willingness to provide us with fun off season events and membership socials!

  • The hard work of Samantha Winters who, as our Events Coordinator, worked with our various golf venues to schedule our Chapter’s golf events during the 2015 season.  The board is happy to know that Samantha will continue in this position for another year.

Thanks also to our Member-at-Large, Christine Corrigan, who has always been present to offer her expertise, sharing ideas and guidance – and to the wonderful memories created by the Sunday Travel League arranged by Colleen Salvaggio

Special thanks goes out to all our League Captains for their organizational skills that helped make the Leagues flow effortlessly this year, including the universal/roving substitutes!  What a success!  Thanks to everyone!

We are also privileged to have Chris Maffey as our first Chapter member to win in her flight at the Nationals – as well as to Theresa Green, who won two raffles only to request they be donated back to the Chapter so they could be given out at some future chapter events.  Theresa has also been responsible for our Chapter’s communications, including submitting our minutes to Headquarters and keeping tabs of new members and membership renewals. 

Over the past year it has been my pleasure to serve as President of this Chapter – and in particular – to get to know and work with each of you.  I will always remember and cherish the friendliness and support you provided to help make this season a success!  I am particularly pleased with the success our Chapter had hosting the District Semi-Finals – during which I learned so much about the professional aspects of the game!  I am truly grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of this exceptional organization – and I thank you for that!

Looking forward – I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to in-coming President, Kim Massa and newly-elected board members – and wish them all a highly successful 2016 season. 

Thank you all, once again, for permitting me this privilege to work with, and get to know you!  Without you we could never have accomplished all that we did! 

Sincerely, 

Susie Opperman

2015 President, Central PA Chapter EWGA
