Sun is shining! Time to get swinging!

We have had a whole week of sunshine.  It is a great time to get out golfing.  Some of our members are coming out for the first time this Monday July 10.  Hoping it is a great showing of members and guests.  If able to join us, call Flamborough Hills Pro Shop 905-627-1743 to book your tee time.  You don’t have to organize the foursome – just call and you will get put in with fun ladies who want to golf at the same time.

Then this coming Saturday July 15 is our Chapter Championship.  This is followed by the Muskoka EWGA get away weekend Friday July 21-23, 2017.  Both look to be a lot of fun.

So please… come on out.  Look forward to seeing you soon.  If you are interested in more information about EWGA Golden Horseshoe, just ask.  You can contact me – Anne Bermingham – at anne@2waconsulting.com or text me at 905-719-1225.

Come play June 5 Best Ball or June 7 Golf in Burlington!

It is another fun-filled week.  Tomorrow – Monday June 5 is our regular Nine and Dine evening of play at Flamborough Hills.  Be sure to call the pro shop before mid morning tomorrow to secure your tee time.  The number is 905-627-1743.

Please note that we are doing something different at tomorrow night’s play – we are encouraging the groups to play “best ball” (aka scramble) as a team.  This means that everyone drives the ball and then the best positioned ball is the spot from which all hit their second shot and so on.  Keep a team score.  We can compare notes at the social / dine part of the evening.  Not a competition per se but a chance to have fun using a different format.  We are hoping that ALL of you will consider entering as a team at the chapter championship – which takes place in mid-July – as there are lots of room for scramble teams as well as individual players to play at this event.

Then on Wednesday June 7 – we are going to have another night of PICK UP golf at a course in Burlington.  Please let me know if you are interested and what time would work for you.  Also let me know if there is a certain course you want to play at – as I won’t book the tee time till likely Tuesday.  Last week, the groups went out around 5:15 or so but am flexible!  Send me word at anne@2waconsulting.com or text / call at 905-719-1225.

We are also wondering how many people would be interested in us engaging golf pros to play on the course with us and give your foursome tips while you play.  If we had one pro alternating between two fourseomes – we might be able to do it for about $25 a person for this customized instruction.  Don’t have details yet on when (might be part of regular Monday night play) or when – for now just need to know if you are interested in this type of specialized clinic.  Send me an email.

Finally, don’t forget to register for the EWGA Canada Cup on Saturday June 24 at Glen Abbey.  You play as a pair – where you play best ball, best score and other such fun formats.  Don’t need to have a handicap.  All four chapters will be represented.  Be sure to register on www.ewga.ca.

Busy Week Ahead – Be Sure to Take Part in the Action

Hi everyone:

We have a busy week ahead for EWGA Golden Horseshoe.  We know that the weather has not been ideal but it is time to get out and enjoy.  Would love to see as many members and guests at our upcoming events.

Monday May 29 – is our regular Nine and Dine weekday play at Flamborough Hills.  Call the pro shop to get a time that works for you.  It is under EWGA.  If the offering of times is not working for you… let us know and we can likely adjust the offerings with the pro shop.  I know I am signed up for 4:28 p.m. but many others go out later in the afternoon.  The pro shop number is 905-627-1743.

We have pick up Golf on June 1 at a course in Burlington.  Let me know if you are interested and we will together select a course and time that works for all.  I am organizing it but can not play this Thursday – so looking for a “on the ground” host.  Let me know if you want to play, your desired tee time and course and if you are willing to be the greeter.  Email is anne@2waconsulting.com and cell phone is 905-719-1225.

Next Monday June 5, we have our regular night play but we are adding a twist.  A chance to play “best ball” with your foursome.  We want to get everyone in the mood so groups of four might consider signing up for the Chapter Championship as a team.   Just sign up for your desired tee time.  We will give you the special instructions that night but main goal is to have fun while working together as a team to have lowest score.

On Saturday June 10, the GTA Chapter of EWGA is playing at Guelph Lakes.  Great chance to play 18 holes and get to know some other members of another chapter.  You can register for this online – www.ewga.ca.

Hope to see everyone soon!
