Be a part of the largest Women's Golf Association and Get Ahead!     

WELCOME

Welcome to the Southwest Florida Chapter of the Executive Women's Golf Association. We formed the chapter in 1999 with ladies primarily in the Naples area. We recently changed our name from the Naples Chapter to the Southwest Florida Chapter, and our members stretch all the way from Marco Island to Naples to Ft. Myers and beyond to Cape Coral.

2017bod.jpgQuestions about joining  our chapter should be directed to Kim Henry and questions about current members' benefits should be directed to Carol Mirando.

Welcome New Members
We would like to welcome our New Members 
Jordan Hawkins and Janet Lindsay
We look forward to Seeing Everyone at Upcoming Events! Welcome!
Chapter Links Program- Coming Soon.....
 
As the Chapter continues to grow with new members, one of the most common reasons for new members to join EWGA, apart from golf, is the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
With this in mind, our Chapter is introducing a new Links program, designed to help integrate and connect our members more effectively, and we need your help.
 
All members will soon be receiving a brief survey designed to reveal a little background information about them so that we can assist in introducing those members with common interests and experiences. Imagine a kind of Chapter EHarmony!
Please help us by completing the survey promptly, and we'll do the rest.
Acquiring new members is one thing, but keeping them depends on how welcomed they feel and the connections made. We pride ourselves on the friendliness of our Chapter, so let's take it to the next level! We greatly appreciate your support of this important initiative.

Save the Date

HOLE-IN-ONE

EWGA SWFL Hole-in-One Insurance
 
Congratulations!

Congratulations to Kerstin Koenig for her Hole in One playing at Quail Village on November 11th. 
KK hit an Approach Wedge 99 yds on hole #2.  Playing and celebrating with her were Jennie Taylor, Phyllis Hoskins and Nancy Nittolo.
Luckily she had paid into our Hole in One insurance so her Club House celebration was covered.  

That means for you it is now time to reinvest in your Hole in One insurance. Information is below.

The tradition of celebrating the rare feat of a Hole-In-One with your fellow players is well established, and, as the odds of getting a hole in one, very roughly, are 12,500 to 1 for an amateur player, it is indeed reason to celebrate!
 
The resulting bar bill from the celebration round of drinks traditionally bought for fellow players that day can be daunting, which is why we encourage you to purchase SWFL Chapter Hole-in-One Insurance for just $5. Don't be that person that just sneaks away without celebrating your shot of a lifetime!
 
The fund was established to help subsidize the traditional celebration of buying drinks should a Chapter member get a coveted Hole-in-One in any official Southwest Florida Chapter event or outing.
Having submitted a paid bar bill receipt to the Event Chair, the player will be reimbursed by the Chapter Board for that expense, not to exceed the total amount of funds held in the Hole-In-One account, which fluctuates depending on how many Chapter members participate, and how many Hole-In-Ones are paid out.
 
Following payout for Hole-In-One celebrations, should the fund fall below $250, participating members will be asked to reinvest $5 to help cover the next celebration(s). Members can elect to participate in the insurance program at any time by paying the $5 fee at any Chapter related event.
  
Only members that have paid for the insurance in advance will be reimbursed for Hole-In-One celebration expenses so don't run the risk. Your next round may be the one......  SIGN UP NOW!
