Welcome to the Manatee Chapter of the EWGA. Our chapter has a reputation of having the most Spirit! We're here to help each other learn more about the game of golf, make new friends and encourage other women to take time out for themselves and participate in a sport they love. We are women golfers of all levels and we like to get together and have fun. So contact one of the board members to find out more about Manatee EWGA.


Unlike many sports, golf is played, for the most part, without the supervision of a referee or umpire.  The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players and to abide by the rules.  All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, irrespective of how competitive they may be.  This is the spirit of the game of Golf.

Some basic rules of Etiquette include:

Pace of Play:  Players should play at a good pace.  A good pace of play is 2 hours and 5 minutes for 9 holes and 4 hours and 10 minutes for 18 holes.

How do you keep up Pace of Play?  Play Ready Golf - Have your club selected and ready;  Keep up with the group in front of you; Watch your fellow players shots and help them find their ball;  Take only one practice swing;  Limit searching for balls to 5 minutes;  Play a provisional ball if you think the original ball might be lost;  Walk briskly and directly to your ball;  Leave your cell phone off or in the locker room.

If you are involved in an event which has open registration and you'd like to publicize it to our members and have it included in our event calendar please give the information to or any Board member.
