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


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.

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.

April 28th and 29th, 2018
There are multiple ways that you can support our 
15th Annual Ladies Pro-Am Golf tournament:
We are happy to announce that our Pro-am field is now full with 36 teams already registered to play.  This event is always very popular and the team registration quickly filled up.  If you are still interested in playing, you may submit your name to Lori Drumm by emailing loridrumm@hotmail.com or calling 239-304-0579 to be placed on the waiting list.   If history repeats itself, we may have an opportunity for you to fill in a spot as it is likely to get a few cancellations.  Contact Lori if you want to get on the wait list.
We are still accepting Saturday Night only reservations.  To attend the dinner, join in the fun and be able to participate in the silent and live auctions and raffles, please contact Lori Drumm at loridrumm@hotmail.com.  The cost is $55. 
The event takes a lot of hard work and effort and we are still in need of volunteers.  We can use a few additional members to lend a hand either now as we prepare for the event or during the event weekend.  Please contact Cheryl McDonnell at Cheryl.mcdonnell@scorevolunteer.org.
Help to make this our best event ever as we celebrate our 15th year anniversary.  Our tournament is all about the GIRLS:  The PACE Center for Girls in Immokalee and the local LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program.  Because of wonderful support, we have raised over $175,000 for our charities the past 14 years.  These monies have been used as cash donations and scholarship awards.
  If you would like to support the GIRLS with cash donation or provide raffle or auction items, please complete the attached Sponsor Flyer.

Thank you for your continued support.  Any questions, please contact either Michelle Klinowski or Marianne Meola (Co-Chairs)

LPGA - EWGA Strategic Alliance

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and the Executive Women's Golf Association (EWGA) have jointly announced plans to form a strategic alliance to further promote the growth of women's golf. 

Together with the LPGA Women's Network, this alliance will create a seamless transition for women looking to go from aspiring player to recreational golfer. The two organizations believe their partnership will promote the growth of women's golf and serve as an advocate for positive change within the game. 

"Our strategic alliance with the LPGA and the LPGA Women’s Network marks the beginning of a new era for women’s golf,” said Jane Geddes, Chief Executive Officer of the EWGA. "With the support of the LPGA, we look forward to creating a clear pathway for women golfers to play our sport by attracting thousands of new, aspiring players to the game as well as adding more exciting playing opportunities for current EWGA members."

More specific details regarding the alliance will be communicated within the next few months. Until then, EWGA members may learn more about the announcement, including the official press release and frequently asked questions at ewga.com.

EWGA SWFL Hole-in-One Insurance

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!
