EWGA Northern New Jersey participated in Match Play against EWGA New York City this past Sunday, June 4, at La Tourette Golf Course in Staten Island, NY. NNJ held off NYC to win (4-2) this year. Way to go team!   A total of 23 golfers (11 NNJ vs 12 NYC) showed up ready to play – rain or shine. A little rain towards the end of the match didn’t ruin an otherwise great day of golf.   A big thank you to the NYC Chapter for hosting and to Ann Northrop for coordinating this event. Ann is commended for registering all 12 members in record time. NNJ needed a little from our friends (CNJ and guests) - thank you.     NNJ: Robyn Lindsay, Marge Zietchick, ...

This year’s Golf School was held at Shawnee on April 21 – 23. It was a weekend full of golf, food and fun with old friends and new. The weekend started with a cocktail hour on the veranda where we enjoyed beer, wine and a view of the river, flowering trees and large putting green. Brian Bergstol, the head teaching pro dropped by to give us a rundown on what to expect for the weekend. Then, we moved inside to the Kirkwood Room, which would be our group gathering room for the weekend. After a southern barbeque buffet (the spareribs were delicious!) we gathered around the fireplace to chat until we all called it a day.             We woke up to a rainy day on ...

Hello EWGA Members and visitors! Our chapter has been phenomenal in covering Hole 17 for the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic being held July 3 - 9, 2017.  Even though Hole 17 is covered, we have a need for hole marshals across the board.  Please spread the word to your friends, colleagues, neighbors and family about volunteering to help support this exciting event! Volunteer directly at thornberrycreeklpgaclassic.com.  Use registration code 'marshal17'.

Beginner Play Rules

Be the first person to like this.
I'm a newbie to both Golf and EWGA and I'm having a fabulous time learning the sport with such wonderful ladies here in St. Louis, MO. I wanted to share something I found rather apropos that I read recently in my first copy of Golf.com magazine. In Nov 2016, columnist Pete Kostis, page 34 had a great suggestion regarding R&A rules for beginners. I laughed out loud because I've felt this way several times this summer. Here's a quote from the article: '...I think rank beginners should be allowed to tee it up in the fairway!' Truer words have never been spoken.. er um written. Those fairway woods are so difficult

Twenty-five years ago, if someone needed to reach you there were four ways to do it. (1) Call on the phone (2) Fax a letter or (3) Mail a letter via U.S. mail or, (4) in person. Today, the communication stream has widened. Contacting someone online via email, texting and social media including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, SnapChat. Has this made for a more distracted workplace? Have we become a nation of people tied to our smart phones? Walk through any small business in America. Quite likely, you'll find a worker on a cell phone or tablet texting, uTubing or checking their status. When you leave work, if ...

Memorial Day denotes the beginning of summer vacation for kids. You have summer camp and other activities lined up for them. They have been taught from an early age to beware of strangers. But how do you protect them from their trusted friend…the online world? Don’t get me wrong, the Internet is a great tool. Today, kids use the Internet with an ease that is enviable. However, with all the openness of the Internet comes danger, too. What danger? There are predators lurking. They come in various forms, from cyberbullying to App scams. Each has its own set of issues. Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. ...

I t finally happened. David beat Goliath. Twitter has been a stickler for the 140 character restriction. During that time, they have added photo, video, polling. This is great, but those enhancements also took away from your character count. Just announced this morning, Twitter is changing the rules. They are giving more character room to tweet. When replying to a Tweet, @names will no longer count toward the 140-character count. Attachments like photos, GIFs, videos, polls, or Quote Tweets won't count as characters. T he Retweet button is being re-vamped. You can Retweet or Quote Tweet ...

Remember the Polaroid camera? It was the first instant gratification medium in photography. It was introduced in 1947 and it took 34 years before the next big leap to occur. Sony introduced the Mavica (Magnetic Video Camera) digital camera for public use in 1981. The Mavica was unique in that images were stored on a floppy disc inside the camera. In 2008, Apple introduced the first iPhone. From there, the era of selfies began and photography hasn't been the same since. Instagram is a popular social community based around pictures. We discussed downloading the Instagram app last week. This week, how do you upload a picture on the app. First, ...

Instagram is an online photo and video-sharing social networking service. It allows end users to take pictures and videos, and share them either publicly or privately. It also links to other social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr. How do you get started? First, download the app either from the App Store or Google Play store. It’s free. Even though you can view posts using your PC/Mac, the majority of your activity will take ...
