Can't wait for next get-together!

It's not too early to start asking, "Where's the Fairway?" for the next visit by our EWGA friends from Seattle. They were wowed on a sunny, warm weekend in July by our Pumpkin Ridge, Tri-Mountain and TopGolf. And our hospitality, of course!


No mystery that trip full of excitement & smiles

Orchard Hills Golf & Country Club in Washougal, Wash., was this year's destination. Terrie Marshall and her helpers were good at keeping it secret – only two players guessed where we were going. Save the end of June for next year's Mystery Trip – a full bus of 52 riders made it our first sell-out of 2017 and one of our more popular events.


Kickoff scores! 13 join, 3 rejoin & events start filling!

Our 2017 Kickoff at Eastmoreland Golf Course was a winning way to start the season! Nearly 100 members and guests attended, with 13 joining on the spot and three former members rejoining.

New member Patricia Grennan won the drawing for a free Classic membership.

Eleven attendees went home with prize baskets full of golf, wine and food, with the basket tickets bringing in $389 for your Portland Chapter to spend on events. Two attendees won clubs.

Donna Gray, our finance director, fittingly won the 50-50 cash pot.

Karen Bolin, Danielle Tollefson and Pia Meyer were the top three bidders to play with our guest speaker Jean Bartholomew, who teaches at PGA National in Florida and continues to play in LPGA and Legends events.

Including money from the top bidders and the 50-50 drawing, we were able to donate $600 to The First Tee of Greater Portland.

Thanks to all of the volunteers, Jean, Eastmoreland, and the golf courses and businesses that donated prizes. We couldn't do it without you!
