April 6 Golden Horseshoe Season Preview – all Members and Guests Welcome!

A sure sign of spring!  It is time for our season preview!

If you are a woman and you are interested in learning more about golf, playing more golf or improving your game – the Golden Horseshoe Chapter of EWGA is for you.  We don’t take ourselves seriously.  We are a fun-loving group of women who come together to PLAY, CONNECT, LEARN and BELONG.

On Thursday April 6 2017 – we are gathering at Budd’s BMW on Upper James in Hamilton.  Arrive for 5:30 p.m. or thereabouts.  Appetizers and drinks.  Chance to meet with members and guests and hear all that is planned for the 2017 Season.

No cost but you must register at www.ewga.ca.  Otherwise we won’t know how many appetizers to have on hand.

Any questions, feel free to reach out to any of us – including myself Anne Bermingham at anne@2waconsulting.com or 905-719-1225.

Lots of laughter heard at Jan 23 EWGA Indoor Event – Don’t Miss Next One on Feb 13th, 2017

On Monday January 23, 2017 – eight members of EWGA dragged their golf clubs out of their basements and met at Far Away Greens.

  • We had two hours of laughter as we picked out dream course to play (one group played St. Andrews and another played Banff Springs). There was pizza, drinks and tips.
  • Both groups had a one hour lesson as well – thanks to Fareen Samji. It was amazing. Everyone left with some very practical and customized tips.

Don’t miss the next two times we repeat indoor golf. Feb 13 and March 6.

Go to www.ewga.ca to register. Guests and members welcome!


 

July 22 Family & Friends 9 and Dine

A heat-resistant group of members and guests had a wonderful summer evening playing nine holes on the Old Course at Knollwood on Friday.

The temperature was enough to wilt the weeds, the humidex was enough to make one’s mascara run, but there was a nice breeze and a well stocked refreshment cart.

We had 4 foursomes play and join together to tell lies and fabrications about how poorly all the people in their group played. As cards were tallied there were shrieks of pleasure at improvements and groans at bad shots that damaged hard won handicaps. Mostly we were congratulating each other on a fine outing and regaling our after-golf table mates with stories of great shots made and witnessed.

We toasted each other on the patio, shared dinner into the twilight, and marvelled at the Banana Split or Brownie Sundae desserts.

Here is a view of the party!

Why don’t you join us next month?

We’ll be playing the New Course and dining at the Old Course on Fri Aug 26. Call the clubhouse at 905-648-8285 to reserve your tee time. Don’t forget to tell them you are with EWGA.

2016 Golden Horseshoe Chapter Championship

This year we joined in with the Waterloo Chapter for our Chapter Championship. We played at the Doon Valley Golf Course in Kitchener. Here is a link to the website.

Here is a link to the scorecard with the course map.

Golden Horseshoe had five members in competitive play. Each of competed in one of five flights – based on their handicaps.

While we played with the Kitchener Waterloo chapter, they “competed” as our own chapter.  They got a break as the weather improved; the temperature cooled down and the humidity dropped for the weekend.

The great news is that there was one EWGA Golden Horseshoe Member per each flight so we were all winners.
