All the Golf News All the Time


Greetings golfers,

Greetings Maine women golfers,

 I hope your golfing season thus far has been a fun one and that you have many more nice days of golf to play here in Maine before the weather turns too chilly or the snow flies!  Hopefully that’s a long way off.  This month we have 5 Tuesday tournaments.  September 1, Point Sebago/Portland CC, September 8thth, Bridgton Highlands (open), September 15, Nonesuch (open), September 22ndth, The Founder’s Scramble at Martindale/Val Halla and a 2- ball at the Woodlands scheduled for September 29.  Remember to continue to check the tournament schedule on this website to be sure to get registered for these events in time to participate. 

 FYI: Our “A” tournament scheduled for September 15th was originally due to be held at Dunegrass but since their greens are going to be punched at that time we’ll have an “Open” tournament at Nonesuch and Dunegrass will be removed from our schedule for this year.

 Our team for the USGA Team Championship will be Staci Creech, Emily Bouchard and Bailey Plourde.  Erin Holmes will be on hand as an alternate.  This prestigious tournament will be held September 10-12 at Dalhousie Golf Club in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  We wish you all luck and know you’ll do your best to represent our wonderful state of Maine in this event!  Play well but also remember to enjoy!!

 Our Scholarship fundraising tournament will be held at the beautiful Webhannet Golf Club in Kennebunk, Maine.  It’s a couples tournament so you might want to grab a male golfing partner and sign up for this interesting and fun event.  The format is Modified Pinehurst and it will be a shotgun start on Sunday, October 4th in the afternoon.  Hors d’oeuvres are included and a cash bar will be available.  Please remember to add this to your calendar!

 Before you know it, our Annual meeting will be here as it’s scheduled for Wednesday, October 7 at 9:30am.  It would be appreciated if you would recruit a member or members to attend this meeting and let us know what you might have for concerns or ideas to help us run more smoothly.

 We are looking to fill a couple of Board positions so PLEASE let me, Barbara Freeman or any board member know if you’re interested in helping this organization to be more successful than it is today.  It would be great to have some “new blood” involved in making decisions and to bring some fresh ideas to our board. “B” player representation is welcome.  If you know of someone who might be interested, please let us know.

 Responsibilities for SMWGA course representatives are listed on this website under SMWGA Representatives 2015/Responsibilities.  Please try and remind your reps and others to refer to this when needed.

 Also listed on our site, under 2015 Booklet/Awards, is information on how the number of places and amounts paid out are calculated.

 Last but not least, when playing, please do your best to keep up with the group in front and play ready golf whenever possible.  It does help to save some time and every little bit helpsJ

 Thanks to those of you who are reading this,

Joy

 

 

 

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

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.
