Our year-end event (golf, luncheon, installation of the 2017 Board, and recognition of our 2016 volunteers and recruiters) is scheduled for Saturday, December 3 at Talamore Resort.  Please save the date; you don't want to miss it!  Look for more details soon.

Updates & Reminders


The Great Pumpkin Race at Southern Pines GC on Saturday, 10/22 will start at 12:30 PM with a great peak-season weekend rate of $50.  All Sandhills and Raleigh Chapter members are welcome.  The social originally scheduled to follow it at Lori's Golf Shoppe 2 in Aberdeen is postponed to a new date when it can start and earlier - and to be announced ASAP.

NEW - 2 outings on Pinehurst #6, Saturday, Nov. 5 at 11:00 AM, and Sunday, Nov. 6 at 12:39 PM, both at a rate of $38.  All 3 tee times each day filled up quickly, please contact Lisa Bomkamp, golfevents@ewga-sandhills.com, to join the waitlist (and please specify for which day!).

ALSO NEW - a weeknight social at the Village Wine Shop in Pinehurst for Wednesday, November 16 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.  The cost of a "flight tasting" will be a special $7 for members, and the usual $10 for guests.  Appetizers provided by the Magnolia Inn will be complimentary for members and guests, and on the Chapter.  Invite your friends!   

Other news:
Knollwood Fairways is offering a series of 6 clinics on Friday mornings at 10 AM from 9/23 to 10/28.  If you're retired, self-employed, or working a compressed week with Fridays off, this is a super opportunity.  ALL skill levels are welcome, especially beginners.  The cost is a dirt-cheap $12/session, or just $72 if you wish to participate in all six sessions.  But they're practically free since, in addition to the instruction, the cost of each session includes a coupon for a nine-hole green fee, or a large bucket of range balls!  SIGNUP IS AT THE KNOLLWOOD GOLF SHOP, and all participants are asked to sign up in advance so they can have the correct number of pros.  (The club has three PGA and one LPGA pro.)  For full details, please see our Education/Mentoring page.
