The Executive Women's Golf Association (EWGA) St. Louis Chapter, founded in 1999, is one of many EWGA chapters across the nation (and around the world). Our headquarters (HQ) is in West Palm Beach, Florida. EWGA's mission is to provide opportunities for women to learn, play and enjoy the game of golf for business and for life. To this end, our chapter sponsors several evening leagues, open weekend play dates, and networking events. We are also a proud sponsor of First Tee of Greater St. Louis, locally, and, through HQ, we support national organizations whose missions are to improve women's lives through golf. I am proud to say that here in St. Louis, we have a diverse membership any way you look at it.
HQ organizes our annual regional stroke play and team match play national tournaments. These tourneys are all flighted by handicap, so even novices can feel like a pro! They also interact with the PGA and the golf industry to provide information and buying opportunities to our members. HQ also makes it easy to find a group to play golf with when you are travelling or relocating.
All of this doesn't happen without drawing on the abilities of our members and the annual dues we pay. Locally and nationally we rely on members to fill various boards and committees, host an event here, make a phone call there. Want to learn how to maintain a website? Join our communications committee. Want to organize a golf event? Join our events committee. You get the idea! I like to say that an EWGA membership can help build your game, your resume and your circle of friends! Have I piqued your interest?
Check us out on our website www.ewgastl.org where we have lots of information on our leagues, playdates, tournaments, and more.
Not sure about joining? Try us out as our Guest. As a guest, one may attend our annual spring Kick-Off event (sign up at http://www.meetup.com/EWGASTL/) and two (2) other events before becoming a member.
We look forward to seeing you on the golf course soon!
