Portland brings home 2nd-Place trophy

Playing in humid, heavy air and tricky grass that we aren't used to, Portland EWGA players still had a blast and brought back a trophy, stories to last a lifetime and the resolve to compete next year in the EWGA Championship Finals. April Okazaki placed second in the 4th flight, while Deb Dalenberg just missed the Top 10 in 2nd Flight low gross and our Scramble Team of Pam Frisby, Marilyn Morfitt, Patti Koffel and Leslie Roberts beat nearly half of the other teams at Hot Springs Village, Ark. Congrats to everyone! Click here for complete scores. For more photos, click here.

2017 Pacific NW Semifinals

Hurray! Cheer for our winning Scramble Team of Pam Frisby, Marilyn Morfitt, Patti Koffel and Leslie Roberts, photobombed here by Karla Harding of the EWGA Tournament Committee. 

Portland rocks Palouse Ridge

Portland sent a huge team of ​16 to the Pacific Northwest Semifinals in Pullman, Wash., and more than half came home with trophies after great play Aug. 26 on a hilly, challenging Palouse Ridge Golf Course. April Okazaki didn't let her game go sideways – not easy to do when there are no level lies! –  and earned low net of the field with a 64, shooting a 102 to take first low gross in the 4th Flight. Deb Dalenberg is advancing with first low net (68) in the 2nd Flight, after shooting a 90 gross. Playing together at Palouse for the first time in competition, one of our Scramble Teams took first with a gross 68/net 66 after a scorecard playoff with one of the Seattle teams. Headed to Hot Springs, Ark., for the Oct. 6-7 EWGA Championship Finals are Pam Frisby, Patti Koffel, Marilyn Morfitt and Leslie Roberts. The Piper Team didn't win this year, but Jen Piper did make off with $355 in the 50-50 drawing! Click here to see all the results. To see more photos of and by Portland players, click here. For a recap and photos from all Pacific Northwest Chapters at Palouse, click here.

WTF? WEEKEND WITH SEATTLE VISITORS

Can't wait for next get-together!

It's not too early to start asking, "Where's the Fairway?" for the next visit by our EWGA friends from Seattle. They were wowed on a sunny, warm weekend in July by our Pumpkin Ridge, Tri-Mountain and TopGolf. And our hospitality, of course!

MYSTERY BUS TRIP

No mystery that trip full of excitement & smiles

Orchard Hills Golf & Country Club in Washougal, Wash., was this year's destination. Terrie Marshall and her helpers were good at keeping it secret – only two players guessed where we were going. Save the end of June for next year's Mystery Trip – a full bus of 52 riders made it our first sell-out of 2017 and one of our more popular events.
