Calling All Members


 This one is for you, our members and volunteers

You are Invited to the fun-filled EWGA Boston End of Season Golf Event


SEPTEMBER 22, 2012


On Saturday, September 22, 2012, we will have our final golf event of the season at Juniper Hills Golf Club. Utilizing both the Riverside and the Lakeside courses, sixty players will have the opportunity to enjoy the fall foliage and some great golf at the two fun and challenging courses.


In addition to golf, there will be prizes such as closest to the pin and longest drive, raffles, and awards presented in the heated tent after we finish our rounds.   Our chapter will host a complimentary post round buffet while we socialize with friends and honor all of you, members and volunteers, the people who make this chapter run as smoothly as possible.


All you need to do is sign up to play, only pay for the greens fees with cart, and we will do the rest to make sure we all have a great time on the course and off.


Please register on line at 


 We look forward to seeing you!

Boston Chapter Shines at Northeast Semi-finals

Fog greeted the early players at the Northeast Semi-finals at Sterling National on August 25th. Heavy, damp air hung over the course for the early starters, but the Boston Chapter ended the day with three slots reserved for the finals in West Palm Beach next month.

Our scramble team, Team Jello, scored a net 68 and won by 2 strokes to advance.  Anchored by our Education Chair, Debbie Kirk, and our Events Chair, Lyndsay Ogelsby, and the sure shots Cindi Duclos and Theresa Sacramone, Team Jello had a great day!  Boston swept the fourth flight with Maryann Navin scoring a net 71 for low net and Worcester/Boston dual member Linda Valinski winning the flight low gross prize. Kate Collins took home a trophy for 3rd low net in the second flight.

Boston should be proud of its volunteers who handled everything from registration to scoring. Tess Hetzel captained the team of volunteers that included: Mari Ingram, Jill Tyzack, Willa Belcher, Maria Levin, Sue Weber, Susie Guszca, Robin Haley, Linda Gilbert, and Thalia Holmes, Thanks also to Syracuse members Joan Davis and her daughter, Wendy Halik, for providing extra hands for registration and photography.
