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.

GOLF EVENTS

  
 
 
Be a Mentor and Make New Friends!
Remember when you were a new member and you felt as though you did not know many women in the group? When golf and non-golf events were offered, was there ever a time that you may have skipped an event because you felt as though you didn't know anyone or weren't confident in what was expected?  

Well, here is your opportunity to make a new member feel welcome - by offering to mentor her at one or more events. Of course you will make new friends, too!  We will be adding a mentor section to the registration process in 123 for each event.  

If you are interested in mentoring a new member for that event, just check the box and we'll pair you up.  It's that easy!  If you are interested in mentoring a new member in general or for any questions, please contact Vivian Ebert, Membership Director, drebert@livingwellfl.com, 239-290-9141; or Carol Mirando, Member Services Director, cmmirando@aol.com, 239-227-5889.
 
 
March Golf Event - Member/Member Event!

We are delighted to announce an exciting new Chapter golf event taking place on Saturday March 25th at the exclusive Vineyards Country Club in Naples!

The
Inaugural Annual Member/Member Event is based on Greg Norman's popular Shark Shootout format, with the two person member team playing 6 holes each of Best Ball, Alternate Shot and Scramble.  Strokes will be given based on the combined team handicap.

Don't miss out on this fun member event. Grab your favorite golfing partner and sign up as a two person team, or if you'd like to play, but don't have a partner, check the "need to find a partner" box at sign up on 123 and we'll put you in touch with others looking for a playing partner.

Tee times start at 1pm. We hope you can join us for a fun-filled afternoon of golf!

Mark your calendar for this year's Chapter Championship
Sunday May 21st @ Spring Run with morning tee times

We are a small, relaxed  group of golfers of varying skill levels (some do not even have a handicap) who like to play 9 holes.

Several of us still work so that is why we play at 4:00pm at a more centrally located course in North Naples, Bonita  or Estero.

In April most tee times will be at Stoneybrook in Estero  until other courses become available in May.

Afterwards, we usually go out for food & beverage at a nearby restaurant.
The coordinators will send out a weekly email confirming location, green fee and any other information.
