Alta Sierra Results - OCT 5

Clare Payne's
the Big Winner at Alta Sierra
Twenty-two golfers made the trek up to beautiful Alta Sierra County Club for a game called Nutts.  You took your net score and added your putts to achieve your total score.  There was actually a four-way tie between Marcia Whiting, Linda Reid, Clare Payne and Vicki Philpott.  It ended up in a card-off, and the winner of a $100 gift certificate to Knights Paint donated by the golf course was Clare Payne.  

Vicki Philpott ended up in second and the winner of a grab bag of goodies.  

Winners of the closest to the pin on all four par 3s, received either a $10 gift card to Haggin Oaks or a $16 gift card to Trader Joes.  The winners were:

Jan Fosberg, (guest), hole 3 = 7'6"
Clare Payne, hole 7 = 8'5"
Clare Payne, hole 12 = 8 1/2'
Rashida Lilani, hole 15 = 8'5"

Rocklin club play day - Sep 28

A few raindrops didn't deter the nine women and one man who signed up to play Rocklin Golf Club.  Even though it wasn't our usual showing of golfers, everyone had a great time playing in the cooler weather.  The course was quite a challenge, but we wee all up for the task.


We gave prizes for the person who had the most net birdies, and the person who had the most net pars.  The winner of the net birdies was Gary Gilbert with 11.  Second place in that category was Cindy Merrall with 7.  


Charlotte Wells had the most net pars with 12, also shooting an 86!!! Second place with 8 was Deana Frandsen and Mary Lou Azevedo who was playing in her first 18-hole stroke play event with EWGA. Hopefully we will see more of her on the links.

2014 EWGA Cup Match Play - Sectionals Next Up

By Kris Corbridge, Sacramento EWGA Cup Captain

The time is growing near for the qualifying event for this years EWGA Cup Match Play Event.  The venue for this first stage is the Westin Mission Hills, Pete Dye Course, Rancho Mirage, CA, September 13-14.  The team representing the Sacramento and Stockton chapters consists of: Captain Kris Corbridge, Kathleen McKilligan, Patricia Ickes, Karen Biscaha, Maryellen Haddock, Betty Lou Beyer, Laura Maupin, and Laura Espinosa.  


We have been working hard on practicing match play strategy with emphasis on course management, rules/penalties specific to match play, and improving our short games.


The planning for this event starts early each year, with registrations beginning April 1st for sectionals, which is a first come first serve registration, whereby any chapter can register for the regional of their choice across the country.  As we predicted, Rancho Mirage was a very popular destination and the west coast regionals grew from 11 teams last year to 19 this year.  Because of this they have divided the event into two qualifiers, with each playing an early and a late shotgun each day.  The top 4 teams from each of the Pacific and Western qualifiers will advance to the final event, to be held Dec 7-8 at Troon North, Scottsdale, AZ.


Last year's team finished 5th in the National Championship and we are hoping for an equally successful showing this year. So if you see any of the members of this years team please wish them well as they endeavor to bring home the gold.
