Teal Bend Women's Golf Month

 

Our Home Course Pulls Out the Stops!

 

On Friday, June 27th Sacramento EWGA members attended a Teal Bend's Women's Golf Month event.  Golf Pro, Geoff Podgorny, gave a free "Full Swing Clinic" filled with personalized swing advice.  Member Del Sayles-Owen says "he reinforced for me that the key to hitting your target is to have one! Thank you Geoff for the great driving range pointers and demonstrations."

 

Next ladies found themselves in golf fashion heaven at the GG Blue Trunk show.  At 50% off - no one went home empty handed! 

 

   

 

Farewell ...  Come Back Soon martha

We Will Miss You, Martha!!!

 

This week's Monday Night Casual Golf was especially festive.  After golf, a group us gathered for dinner at Timbers Restaurant to honor and say good bye to our very own Martha Messineo.  Our Chapter has been so fortunate to have this creative, fun, skilled and committed lady to serve as our webmaster.  Martha is moving to San Luis Obispo (lucky gal) and hopefully she will come back to golf with us occasionally.  Our thanks to Martha for all she has done to help make the Sacramento Chapter a warm and welcoming place!

PUtting Clinic -- Jun 23

We had seven ladies participate in the class with amazing results.  They learned proper alignment and how to control for both distance and speed.  They even know how and when the speed of greens is measured... just ask them about the Stimpmeter.  Congratulations to Connie Clark, the winner of the surprise closest to the pin contest who received a one hour lesson with our esteemed instructor, Don Pottle! 

 

This was the final clinic of the Haggin Oaks Short Game Series and it was unanimous that we should do it again next year!  A big thank you to volunteer Nancy Lyons who helped in the coordination of this event. 

 

 

  

Yocha Dehe Fun, Fun, Fun -- Jun 22

You Should Have Been There On June 22

 

We had 29 ladies and one lone gentleman enjoying another fabulous golf event.  Yocha Dehe is one of the premier golf courses in the area, and they treat you so well.  The best part is after you turn in your golf cart, there is a cold, wet towel waiting for you.  Heaven after a hot day.

 

The game we played was called David & Goliath.  You took the gross scores on the five longest holes and added them to the scores on the four shortest holes to come up with a nine-hole score.  You then subtracted half of your handicap for your adjusted score.  It was a close race with three people tied for second at 32:  Kathleen McKilligan, Vicki Philpott, and Cindy Merral, but Kayleen Kott came in with an amazing score of 28.  She won a round of golf for two generously donated by Yocha DeHe.  Funniest moment was how fast Theresa Stamey jumped up to stand next to Kayleen when she found out it was a round for two!!

Short Game Clinics -- Jun 19

Haggin Oaks Short Game Clinics - Next Up June 26

 

On June 5th, eight women attended the first of this three part series.  In addition to teaching chipping technique, Don Pottle ensured everyone understood the "theory" behind chipping and helped with appropriate grip and stance.   They had the opportunity to practice short, medium and long chips and learn which clubs to use for each.  Everyone felt it was time well spent and looked forward to practicing their chipping and to the next lesson in the series. Sunny Mills, our President, attended and had this to say: 

"Best chipping lesson ever!  Don was clear that grip/grip pressure, aim, stance, and posture are necessary for any stroke.  I now "get" how a pre-shot routine is critical.  He must be Sacramento's best kept secret!"

 

The second clinic covered Sand Bunker play.  On June 19th, eight courageous ladies headed to the sand with excellent results.  When you hear "this is fun" from someone in a bunker you know Don hit a home run.  He closed by giving us a preview of the putting clinic and giving us tips on how to read a green.

Equipment Demo and Social -- Jun 17

On June 17, 2014, we held our equipment demo and social at Haggin Oaks.  This event was made even more special by a guest visit from EWGA founder Nancy Oliver!  On this beautiful evening, she regaled us with lots of great stories about EWGA's history and its humble beginnings. What started in 1991 as an eight-week clinic ("inclusive of a glass of wine!") to help businesswomen learn the game blossomed into an organization, touching the lives of more than 100,000 women.  Thank you Nancy for your vision and tenacity!  

 

Kris Monaghan, LPGA Pro conducted a fabulous Q&A session on the latest equipment out there and the importance of being fitted.  She and Mark Ataberry, the Cobra Representative discussed what you should and shouldn't have in your bag and why.  Later the members got complimentary Trackman Quick Fits, gaining a greater understanding of their golf swing.  Haggin Oaks offers the "Quick Fit" which are short sessions on the launch monitor with key info, like club speed and launch angle, which they use to help customers choose the right gear.

 

Did we mention food and wine?  Yes - prospective members, veteran members and new members got a chance to get to know each other at this relaxing social event.  Did we mention shopping?  Haggin Oaks gave members a 10% discount in the Super Shop for the night only.

 

Our thanks to volunteer Sonya Bradley for organizing this great event.  Hope to see everyone next year!
