Your GSWGA Board
Your GSWGA Board of Directors has heard your concerns about pace of play. So beginning with this year’s Fall Team Tournament, we have instituted the following two measures to help alleviate the problem.
First, we will allow a maximum of 10 strokes per hole. This is in accordance with a USGA rule implemented this year.
Second, after consulting with several golf professionals, we have determined that pace of play will be significantly improved by eliminating the scramble from our Team Tournament. Therefore, the Team Tournament will now consist of two days of Best Ball.
Your Board is excited about these improvements and hope that you will be too.
Join us for the 2019 Fall Team Tournament on September 30th through October 2nd in Acwoth at Governors Towne Club and Bentwater Golf Club
Governors Towne Club
Our host club, Governors Towne Club’s dramatic elevation changes, cascading creeks and dedication to preserving the environment influenced the strategic design of each hole. Golf holes are flanked by a majestic forest of giant hardwoods and pines, 2 to 4 feet in diameter, isolating the natural beauty and graceful course topography while creating one of Atlanta’s purest golf experiences. Variety is the strength of the course, and the playability is intended to appeal to golfers of all skill levels and ages. Various hole lengths and pars and the changing contours of the site make club selection vary for each hole.
Bentwater Golf Club
Bentwater Golf Club, located in Acworth, near Marietta and Kennesaw, is one of Northwest Atlanta’s best golf courses, offering almost 7,000 yards from the back tees. However, the course is better known for its scenic appeal than its difficulty. Striking views of Red Top Mountain, as well as the ponds, creeks and wetlands will highlight your round at Bentwater.
Bentwater Golf Club, which opened to rave reviews in 2000, is a parkland-style Mike Dasher design.
Greetings from 2019 President, Marva Simpson
It is my pleasure on behalf of the GSWGA Board of Directors to welcome you to our 2019 golfing season. As your newly elected President, I am filled with excitement and anticipation as we embark on another season of golf and all that this game brings to each of us, fun, fellowship, friendship, laughter, and enjoyment. I am amazed by the fact that this is the 55th year that GSWGA has been in existence and promoting golf among senior women throughout the state. The history of GSWGA is rich and well known in Georgia. Through the years, you, the members, have supported the organization through your participation in the annual Spring and Fall tournaments, service on the Board, and by your efforts in soliciting women golfers to become members. As I begin my tenure as President, I want to THANK you, the members, for your loyal support and dedication to GSWGA. There would be no GSWGA without YOU.
Plans are underway for a “Marvelous” 2019 season of golf. We are set to play this Spring in Valdosta, Georgia at the historical Valdosta Country Club founded in 1917. The second club, comparatively speaking is still in its youth having been founded in 1999, Kinderlou Forest Golf Club. These are two beautiful golf courses that you will enjoy playing.
In 2019 we will continue to focus on our efforts to improve the website; to make registration for membership and tournament entry a more efficient process; to promote growth within the association; and to provide tournaments that are efficient, fair and enjoyable.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us hear from you. The Board is here to serve you and would appreciate hearing from you. You may contact us at email@example.com. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Looking forward to an outstanding year for GSWGA and wishing each of you your best round of golf ever in 2019!
