My EWGA Story
The Executive Women’s Golf Association’s (EWGA) theme for the month of March is “Discover EWGA.” I thought this would be a great opportunity to share my EWGA experience with others.
I was first introduced to the EWGA by my boss, Bob Iezzi. Bob was a proponent in welcoming the local Louisville, Kentucky chapter to Fuzzy Zoeller’s Covered Bridge & Champions Pointe Golf Clubs and supported their growth initiatives. The Louisville EWGA Chapter is relatively new. Covered Bridge & Champions Pointe Golf Clubs are huge supporters of the EWGA and women’s golf. When I started working for Fuzzy and the golf courses, Bob suggested I join the EWGA.
The goal of the EWGA is to connect women to learn, play and enjoy golf for business and for fun.
In the Spring of 2013, I joined the Louisville EWGA Chapter. I’ve play in the weekly Spring League at Covered Bridge and attend EWGA social and networking events. This year I plan on playing in the Chapter Championship, too. Through the EWGA, not only do I get to play a game I love, I’ve met and connected with some amazing women in the local Louisville area, whom I may have never met otherwise. These women have become great friends to me, as well as professional contacts.
In January 2015, I joined the National EWGA Association Board of Directors as a young professional representative. I will serve a three year term on the board. I am excited to work with such a great group of board members, who share the same passion for golf and the EWGA as I do. Also, I look forward to representing young professionals and helping increase the number of young professionals in the organization. Many young professional women can benefit from being a part of the EWGA and learning the game of golf.
The EWGA is an organization I strongly believe in and I have become an advocate for it. The EWGA teaches women to use the game of golf as a tool for business and recreation. Many women often miss out on business opportunities and deals that take place on the course because they do not know how to play golf. I myself can think of three opportunities off the top of my head I would have missed out on if I didn’t know how to play. My hope is for more women, especially young professionals, to be introduced to this organization and play golf…No matter what your skill level, beginner golfer to advanced golfer, the EWGA has something to offer every woman interested in the sport.
I am thankful I’ve “Discovered EWGA” and hope others do, too!
