 The inaugural Women's Golf Day (WGD) will be celebrated around the world on Tuesday June 7, 2016. Between the hours of 4:00pm-8:00pm, this first-of-its-kind global growth-of-the-game event, will welcome women and girls to golf facilities where they will be introduced to the game in a welcoming and spirited environment. The event also encourages existing female golf enthusiasts to attend and tee it up for nine holes of late afternoon scramble-format golf.  Immediately following the late afternoon golf clinic (or on-course 9-hole experience), WGD attendees will participate in a celebratory gathering that's all about networking and making quality connections through golf.

 

Tell your friends, neighbors and co-workers to ‘save the date’ too.

It’s another great opportunity to invite JUST ONE person to attend with you!

HOLE-IN-ONE

EWGA SWFL Hole-in-One Insurance
 
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!
