All about the rules - Mar 17

We had a great Match Play Rules Clinic on March 17, 2015 at Haggin Oaks.  John Nakamura, past NCGA President and Tournament Official went over the rules of match play and the differences between stroke and match play. The nine members who attended brushed up on the basics and picked up lots of new information.  It also helped the attendees put together strategies for the upcoming match play league. As, always John was stellar in his presentation.   

Congratulations to the 2015 Graduating Class of Match Play University!

El Macero Fun Play - Mar 16


EL MACERO COUNTRY CLUB

MARCH 16, 2015

 

17 members, one guest, and Stanley (pictured above), Marsha Suter's service dog in training, joined ex-EWGA member, Gwen Hare (also pictured above) at this beautiful private country club.  It was such a treat for those of us who were able to play.  Everyone raved about the course, even with all those bunkers!!!!

 

Our game was called Circle Nine.  You were able to pick your best nine holes out of the 18 and subtract half your handicap.  And the winner was:  Deana FrandsenTillie Melton and Lynda Lapp came in a tie for second.  Third place was won by Laura Maupin and fourth place went to Marsha Suter.

 

We are hoping to be invited back again, and we can have some more people join us for this special treat.

Big Break at Auburn Valley - Mar 14

AUBURN VALLEY

MARCH 14, 2015

TWO-PERSON SCRAMBLE

 

Those who didn't attend missed a great event.  Our very own Karen Garcia set up our Big Break competition again this year.  There were five stations with each worth 20 points.  There was putting, flop shot, bunker, short chip, and chip and run.  Guess who won again this year?  That darn Linda Reid with a total of 60!!!  Kris Corbridge was a close second with 58.  Linda won a round of golf for four generously donated by the course.

 

The game we played was a two-person scramble.  Everyone had a team handicap that was configured using EWGA championship guidelines.  There were 10 teams competing.  It's a bit hard to compete against Karen and Linda Reid, but we all tried our best.  Of course, they took the grand prize with a gross score of 68, but a net of 71 because they had to add strokes.  Pam Katros and Shelley Van Drimmelen came in second with a score of 79.  Third prize went to Vicki Philpott and Janet Cino with 80.  Fourth place was held by Tyra Jarvis and her guest, Kelley Hansen.

Kathleen's World of Travel Social - Mar 11

EWGA Gets Social at the Kathleen's World of Travel Social 

 


We're all ready for a trip to the Caribbean now!!!  Our Birdie Sponsor, Kathleen Wheeler and Sandals Sales Rep, Ronda Rivett provided us wine, appetizers, and lots of great information about all the Sandals locations in the Caribbean.  In addition, there was a raffle drawing for a bottle of wine, which was won by Kathy Souza's husband, Rod Souza.  Then there was a putting contest afterwards.  There were only two that were within 15-18" from the pin.  And the winner of the new putter is...  Pam Katros!  Congrats Pam!  

 

And thank you to Kathleen for an enjoyable evening! 

 
If you were unable to make it, be sure to contact Kathleen for whatever your travel needs are or visit her website!
 

Fun was had at Eagle Vines! - Mar 8

As we headed onto Highway 12, we left the sunshine behind us.  The course was pretty foggy and cold.  The temperature dropped seven degrees on the car thermostat.  People were buying warm clothes in the pro shop for a 20 percent discount.  I think this happens a lot there.

 

The fog lifted and the sun came out and what a gorgeous day it was.  Such a beautiful course, but boy was it a challenge.  We had 22 golfers take advantage of their "winter special" which included golf, range balls, and  deli sandwich or polish/hot dog and soda or beer.  It also included two closest to the pin contests, each winning a round of golf at Eagle Vines.  The winners were Sharon Blume on hole #14, and Skip Rochette on hole #5.

 

The game we played was called Aces Wild.  You took your net score and subtracted all your one putts.  The grand prize winner was Tillie Melton followed by Jeri Paik in second.  They each won a gift card to Starbucks.

The Final Snow Bunny for 2015 - Mar 1

Our last Snow Bunny League play was on Sunday, March 1 ~ from Snow Bunnies to Fog Bunnies and finally Sun Bunnies!  It was a beautiful day.

 

We played at Wildhawk Golf Course and the game of the day was "Train Wreck".  WE had 3 new members join us.  Welcome to Pat Stewart, Linda Paist and Denise Pulver.

 

The week before two members who joined last year after the Snow Bunny League was over, Kristin Montgomery and Denise Arend joined us.  I personally think Snow Bunny League is a great way to meet fellow members!!

 

"Train Wreck" scores went from a high of 27 to several zeros!!  I have been paid handsomely not to tell you who they are!

 

The Winner with 27 points was Sharon Blume.  She won a $25 gift certificate at Haggin Oaks.  The 2nd place people with 24 points were Julia Hadley, Kathleen McKilligan and Susan Platner.   And, 3rd place was Tillie Melton with 23.  Second and third place winners received 2 sleeves of balls as their prizes.  Kayleen Kott and Linda Reid had 13 points and each one got a sleeve of balls.

 

And That's All Folks....for this year!!

Winner Sharon Blume
