The Eastern Shore Chapter of the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA) hosted the Chesapeake District Semi-Final at The Links at Lighthouse Sound on Saturday, August 5th, 2017. There are 15 District Semi-Final venues nationwide during a three-month period for golfers who advance from their local Chapter Championships.

Now in its 22nd year, the EWGA Championship is the largest women’s amateur golf tournament of its kind, with more than 2,400 members participating annually. The competitive tournament appeals to EWGA members of all skill levels as it includes five flights of Stroke Play Competition as well as a Scramble Division. Participants compete in a local Chapter Championship then advance to the district semi-finals at one of 15 venues nationwide. The Eastern Shore Chapter Championship was held at Ocean City Golf Club on July 16, 2017. The event concludes with the national EWGA Championship, an exciting two-day finals competition that will be held at Hot Sprints Village in Hot Springs, Arkansas on October 6 and 7.

“The Chesapeake District semi-final boasted a field of 94 EWGA members representing 9 chapters with 18 ladies earning advancement opportunities to the Finals,” said Lorri Urban, president of the Eastern Shore Chapter of EWGA. “We are honored to be sending 5 of our local members to the Finals: Linda Thomas with a low net score of 66 in the Second Flight and the event’s First Place Scramble Team with a net score of 67: Beth Deeley, Cindy Hall, Donna Fabac and Sue Flynn. Congratulations ladies and best of luck in Arkansas!”
