2017 EWGA-PDX KICKOFF

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.

Be sure to check when your membership lapses and click here to renew today!

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!

OREGON CITY WEEKEND EVENT

Hardy crew rewarded with sun & fun

Sixteen golfers and intrepid Event Captain Linda Erickson drove out to Oregon City on a dreary Saturday morning, but were pleasantly surprised to have the rain stop (mostly) during play and the sun come out by the end of the day. Ask Jodenne Scott and Susan Weiner about their new favorite, grapefruit beer. Who knew? For more photos, click here to go to our Photobucket Library.

TOPGOLF

Drinks, golf and friends – what could be more fun?

Top 'O the Morning at Topgolf

Our Sunday morning outing to Topgolf-Hillsboro on a cool, rainy day brought the warmth of fun and friends to all who attended. Thanks to Judith Sachs, our member recruitment director, for organizing the early season social event.

Remember, if you bring a guest to any of our events through June 1, you will be entered into a drawing for a free foursome at Pumpkin Ridge in our "Friends & New Members Contest." And new and prospective members get $10 off our early season events.
