Welcome to EWGA San Francisco Bay Area Chapter


  • EWGA Championship Northern Cal Semi Final

    On August 12, the EWGA Semi Final competition for Northern California was held at Teal Bend in Sacramento. Our San Francisco Bay Area Chapter was represented in Stroke play by: Angie Um and Bridget Albosta in the First Flight, Christine Lee and Jean Gorman in the Second Flight.

    In the Scramble Team competition, we had two teams: Laurie Smith, Maureen Murray, Alex Breitman, Georgianne Stephen; and Judy Madden, Jeanette Chang, Nancy Layman, Jeanne Schow.

    While everyone had a good time and played well, no one qualified to move on to Nationals this year. Angie came in second low gross and the Laurie Smith scramble team came in a close third. Two scramble teams go forward, so they were just out of it as was Angie. They were relieved they missed the heat wave earlier in the month!

    Thanks ladies for representing us well!
  • San Francisco Bay Area Chapter Wins 2017 Cal Cup!

    Eleven California EWGA Chapters met at Indian Wells Golf Resort on May 6 & 7 to play for the 11th Annual Cal Cup. The first day is team play: 3 teams play alternate shot and 3 play best ball. On Saturday our team won 3 matches and split one for a total of 3.5 points. Sacramento took down 5 points for the lead after the first day. We were in fourth place. We knew we had a chance at that point but not easy to pull off.

    Sunday with singles is the harder day – each player is on their own without the comfort of their team member in the cart. In the end our team won eleven matches and split one for a half point. There are twelve different stories for each of these matches. Many were close the whole match and most went 17 or 18 holes. That split match was the result of amazing golf performances. Laurie Smith shot a 78 and her opponent at 77 to halve the match. (The slope on the course we played in 128 just to let you know how fabulous this match played.) No team in the eleven year history of Cal Cup has earned 11.5 points out of 12 on the final day. The total of 15 points is also a record. Second place was at 12 which many years would be a winner. To say we took the tournament by storm is an understatement.

    Our chapter fielded a very strong team. In March we held two qualifiers to decide on the team.

    Alternate Shot Partners:
    Stacey Baba and Lorie Hirahara
    Laurie Smith and Maureen Murray
    Julie McEntee and Judy Owen (captain)

    Best Ball Partners:
    Jeanette Chang and Lynn Kobatake
    Alicia Sinclair and Judy Madden
    Tanya Boysen and Christine Lee

    These twelve golfer played with grit and talent to win all of those matches. The Chapter should be very proud. We will bring the trophy to one or two events so you and all see it in person. I must say it is a significant trophy.
