FLASH RESULTS

Eclectic Partner Tournament - Eagle Crest Golf Club
July 13 & 20, 2014

Our EWGA San Diego Chapter recently held its First Annual Eclectic Partner Tourney at Eagle Crest Golf Course. In the eclectic format, two-player teams played two rounds over consecutive Sundays. Based on their handicap indexes, players were allowed “pops,” or strokes off, their gross score on each hole to generate per-hole net scores.  Over the course of the two rounds, each team selects their lowest net score for each hole to produce their best 18-hole score.  The team with the lowest Net score wins! Prizes were awarded to 1st and 2nd Place teams.

The team of Joan Kuhns and Jen Faye won with a net score of 47, followed by Pam Pongratz and Laura Wilson with a net score of 53.When Communications Director Cathy Wright asked the winning team how they were able to improve on their already very low net score, Jen said “when we found out we were leading going into the second round, we had a plan to really concentrate on the holes that we knew we could score better on that we did the first round.” Joan added, “the team format worked out really well for us because many times, if one of us had a bad hole, the other one came through with a good score. We both contributed.”

There were also opportunities to win prizes with competitions for Closest-to-the-Hole and Longest, Straightest Drive. Following the second and final round played on July 20, the players gathered in the Eagle Crest clubhouse for a delicious BBQ lunch. A 50-50 coin toss was held, with proceeds donated to the First Tee Junior Golf Program. We would like to extend many thanks and our appreciation to Mark Hayden, Head Pro/GM at Eagle Crest Golf Club, as well as Brian Perkins, Tournament Director, and the entire wonderful staff for hosting this fun event for us.

Congratulations to all the Winners!

1st Place Team: Joan Kuhns & Jen Faye (Net 47)

2nd Place Team: Pam Pongratz & Laura Wilson (Net 53)

CTTP, July 13: Susan Crawford

BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING

“Helping others is the way to Higher Individual Well Being”1

There are many benefits to volunteering. Here are some thoughts to ponder …

1)  It is a chance to meet people outside your life patterns.  You can make new friends and contacts and increase your social and relationship skills.

2) Volunteering is enriching for your mind and body.  When you perform good deeds for others and the community, it provides a natural sense of accomplishment and boosts your self-confidence, self-esteem, and life satisfaction.

3)  An opportunity to can advance your career.  You can learn valuable job skills if you want to change or explore an area of interest.  If you want to learn accounting, be or help the Finance & Records Director.  If you want to learn marketing, be or help the Marketing & Sponsorship Director.  If you want to do Event Planning, be or help the Events & Activities Director. Check out some opportunities by seeing our list of Directors and their positions.

Our San Diego Team at the 2013 CA Cup!

 

California Cup 2013

Twelve San Diego Chapter ladies traveled to compete in the 7th Annual California Cup tournament in Monterey October 25 – 27.  Team members were: Melissa Bright, Lynne Cardarelli, Susan Crawford, Wendy Eagle, Nancy Homer, Suzanne LaTour, Mary Lou O'Keefe, Connie Pasterkiewicz, Marie Shannon, Christine Shorkey, Dorothea Sledge, and Lois Spence.

 We played the beautiful Blackhorse and Bayonet Golf Courses in Seaside.  This annual competition among the 12 California Chapters follows the Solheim Cup format of 3 teams of FourBall and 3 teams of Alternate Shot on Saturday, and 12 individual matches on Sunday for each chapter.  The San Diego Chapter had one win (Connie Pasterkiewicz and Chris Shorkey) and one tie (Susan Crawford and Marie Shannon) in the team competition and six winners in the individual competition (Dorothea Sledge, Marie Shannon, Melissa Bright, Susan Crawford, Lynne Cardarelli, Wendy Eagle).   Congratulations Ladies!  Sonja Stevenson was the team captain and helped keep everyone informed and organized.  The weather was quite nippy and the greens played like an ice rink!  Saturday night, the team enjoyed a great dinner at the Fish Hopper in Cannery Row. 

 Thanks to everyone who participated!

PACE OF PLAY PLEDGE

EWGA San Diego Chapter members are busy women.  Thus, pace of play at our golf events is important.  We ask you to join us in speeding our pace of play by making these simple commitments to pace of play:

1.  We will play "ready golf" unless it is an official Tournament.
2.  We will pick up on a hole when we've reached our maximum strokes (equitable stroke control).
3.  We will move quickly to our ball. When our balls are relatively close, we will drop off our golf cart partner and then go to our ball
4.  We will be prepared (have a provisional ball handy; bring extra clubs when walking to the ball; limit practice swings).

If you have other suggestions to add to the pledge, please share them with education@ewga-sd.org.
