Greetings from Linda Barrett, our 2017 President
Happy New Year, Everyone!
On behalf of the GSWGA Board, we thank you for your membership! For our valued members, it is our privilege and priority to provide you with beautiful courses where old and new friends meet and gather, and where special memories are made.
As our 2017 tournament season starts, our board has read your 2016 tournament evaluations and we are working diligently on ways to improve our service to you. We value your ideas and suggestions and encourage you to contact us using the Contact Us page on our website: http://www.gswga.org.
May9th & 10th welcomes you to King & Prince Golf Resort in St. Simons Island, occupying some of Coastal Georgia’s most beautiful, historic acreage, with four signature holes, ancient forests, and large areas of salt marsh. Sea Palms Resort offers challenging play for golfers of all skill levels, with stunning views of the Marshes of Glynn. Come enjoy this history-rich area that boasts “unrivaled Southern hospitality.”
October 3rd & 4th welcomes you to Newnan Country Club, an exclusive private club, designed for luxury and leisure, located in historic Newnan, GA. White Oak Golf Club, owned and managed by Club Corporation, highlights great elevation changes, tree lined fairways and large greens. It is home to the Women’s Georgia Open.
Practice rounds, and hotel locations have been negotiated for affordability and quality. Additional details will be provided on the website soon. Practice rounds will be available two days prior to our events. Please mark your calendars for both of these events, and submit your application for membership renewal now.
Achieving the GSWGA goals of promoting women’s golf in Georgia would not be possible without the participation of the hard-working, dedicated volunteer board members with whom I am honored to serve as President. The GSWGA board welcomes new members Fran Eckart, Sandy Estlund, Melanie Marshall, and Wanda Montgomery. They bring an abundance of professional achievements, and diverse backgrounds, and will be tremendous assets to our association. I would like to thank each of our board members for their active roles in helping us achieve a memorable 2017 golfing experience for you.
