Ending 2014 Strong!
We are pleased to announce one of our Chapter's most successful outreach efforts. Our Golf Programs and Services Director, Del Sayles-Owen
responded to the request from women employees at the accounting firm of
CohnReznick who were interested in learning the great game of golf.
Working closely with the supportive staff at Haggin Oaks Golf Course,
we were able to design a "Get Golf Ready" program for ten corporate
sponsored women that met their schedules and promoted team building.
Over the course of five weeks in September and October, these ladies
learned the basics of putting, chipping, pitching and the full-swing
from one of Haggis's most popular instructors, Don Pottle.
Although the participants were challenged each week learning this
humbling game, there were also some fun times. What is golf without the
joy and camaraderie at the 19th hole? These ladies were able to meet,
greet and celebrate their accomplishments with Del, President Sunny Mills,
Membership Recruitment Director Fern Lukka
and member volunteer Deanna Frandsen
We are so gratified that this effort resulted in 11 women committing
themselves to the game of golf by joining the EWGA Sacramento Chapter!
Those ladies with the asterisk below also participated in the "Get Golf
Ready" lessons. Awesome accomplishment!
