NEW SEASON UPDATE from Joy Eon, President

Hi all,

Remember…Wednesday, April 29 @ 9:30 am is our Spring Meeting.  This is a good time to meet fellow members, catch up with those we already know, give any input you might have and see what’s new.

 The following is a notice from Terri Messer who could use volunteers for her event to be held on June 28.  She will be holding an organizational meeting on the 4th of May for anyone who wants to volunteer to help out in any way.  Please contact her at the email or phone number listed to volunteer your time and or efforts.


Second Annual Girls Golf Fair June 28

 The Second Annual Girls Golf Fair, sponsored by the First Tee of Maine, will be held Sunday, June 28, 2015, from 1 – 3 p.m. at Riverside-South Golf Course, Portland. Our goal is to grow the game of golf by introducing non-golfing girls to the sport in a low-key, fun environment and encouraging girls who already play golf to continue with this lifelong sport. The Golf Fair is free and open to girls of all ages. Last’s year event was a success with about 50 girls attending. Our goal for this year is to make the event even bigger and better by reaching more participants and by adding more volunteers.

 We need volunteers in many capacities both before and the day of the event. We also need volunteer instructors and helpers – all you need is a knowledge of golf and we will give you teaching guidelines. We also need women golfers to bring participants to the event – children, grandchildren, neighbors, friends or relatives. Please let me know if you are willing to help out in any capacity and what your availability is. You don’t need to be available the day of the event to volunteer as we also have plenty to do before the event. Any help is welcomed!!

 Thanks for your interest in helping to grow the game of golf by getting more girls involved.

I hope to see many of you at our season opener at Sanford Country Club on May 5th!



Sometimes it’s handy to know your handicap, in advance, before playing a new course.

To find out follow this link to the USGA site where you can enter information and find your number.

Scroll down to find the app.

Also, if you have a calculator handy, you can do it yourself. Multiply your index number by the slope rating and then divide by 113.

Have fun with the numbers.
