Top-10 Finish at EWGA Cup!!

Top-Ten Finish at
EWGA Cup Finals
for the Magnum Force!

Fifty teams of 8 women each from EWGA Chapters across the US travelled to the beautiful Westin Mission Hills Resort in Rancho Mirage to compete in the national EWGA Cup.  It was a huge tournament with the 400 players competing in two days of better-ball and singles match play.  Two shot gun starts per day on two spectacular courses, the Mission Hills Pete Dye Course and the Gary Player Signature Course.  

Our Sonoma-Marin-Napa Chapter team, appropriately named The Magnum Force, was co-captained by Carolyn Stull and Jenny Shone with team members Sacha Bunge, Regina Cortez, Terri Leonard, Jennifer Yount and Rose Zamudio.  The Magnum Force team gained entry into the national tournament by qualifying at the regional competition hosted by  the Chardonnay Golf Club in Napa and was one of five California chapters to send a team to the finals.   The team scored 7 ½ points out of a possible 12, placing The Magnum Force in 9th place out of the 50  teams!  

The experience was eye-opening with so many players at the tournament, but with the synergy of strong camaraderie, competitive spirits, fine dining with Rombauer Vineyards and Benziger Family Winery wine and much laughter, The Magnum Force earned the top 10 spot, finishing in front of the other California chapters)!  An awesome accomplishment for our Chapter’s first time out competing at the national EWGA Cup Event.


The Magnum Force was a triple threatfierce, friendly and FUN to play with!



5-Time Cal Cup Winners

Hurray, We Won!!

EWGA Cal Cup Champion Team

The EWGA Sonoma-Marin-Napa (SMN) Chapter won the 2016 California Cup tournament for the second year in a row, and for the fifth time in the 10-year history of the event. The 2016 tournament was the 10th Annual EWGA California Cup competition consisted of 8 teams from EWGA chapters located throughout California and northern Nevada.  The competition was held on October 22 & 23, 2016 at Rancho Canada Golf Club in Carmel Valley, California. 

Captain Jennifer Yount lead the 12-member SMN team through a highly competitive field over the two-day match play event. The format for the tournament is similar to the LPGA Solheim Cup & PGA Ryder Cup.


Low Handicap Carolyn Stull, and Captain Jennifer Yount

At the end of Day One with matches in Four-Ball Match Play formats the Santa Barbara Chapter was in first place with 5 points; while the Sonoma-Marin-Napa and San Diego Chapters were tied for second place with 4 points each. Twelve Singles matches were held on Day Two with the Sonoma-Marin-Napa team winning 8 matches, and tied with Santa Barbara with a total of 12 points. For teams whose tournament scores were tied, the scorecard for the Singles match of their lowest handicap player was used in a “card off” using the last 9 holes played. Sonoma-Marin-Napa’s player, Carolyn Stull was 2 holes up for the last 9 holes while Santa Barbara’s Lori Kibbie was all square, awarding the win to the victorious SMN Chapter!

The 2016 SMN team pictured left to right includes Kathy Tindal, June King, Linda Fong, Denise Rose, Karri Haven, Lynn Sletto, Jennifer Yount, Carolyn Stull, Carolyn Hummer, Tina Nuestel, Lin Repola and Linda Hauck. 

The 2016 California Cup tournament included the following California and Nevada chapters of EWGA and their final point score:  Sonoma Marin Napa (12 points), Santa Barbara (12), San Francisco Bay Area (10 ½), Orange County (9), San Diego (8), Northeast Bay Area (7 ½), Northern Nevada (7), and Sacramento (6). Competition is based on Chapter teams and is conducted over two-days: Day One is Four-Ball Match Play and pairings played either “best ball” or “alternate ball” as determined by the team captain. Day Two is Singles Match Play format and pairings are determined by the tournament chair. Scoring is determined by a hole-by-hole competition.
