“We are so grateful to Aetna for their generous support of our chapter,” said Sherri Wilson. The contest ran from March 30th to October 15th and included 20 competitive teams: Participants earned and accumulated points for all clinics, outings, leagues and competitions in which they played or worked as volunteers.
The Executive Women’s Golf Association is a national, not for profit organization formed in 1991 with over 20,000 members in the U.S., Canada and France; the Westchester chapter was formed in 1998 and has over 150 members. The Westchester chapter’s members are a mix of professional women in the lower Hudson Valley region who want to learn, improve or compete in the game of golf. “There are a lot of women who want to play golf but don’t know how to get started, especially if they aren’t members of a country club,” says Sherry Bruck. “The EWGA is like a virtual country club: Members pay $125 to join and have access to lessons and clinics, organized outings and competitive play as well as social events at both public courses and country club courses.” For more information about Westchester chapter visit the website at www.ewgawestchester.com.
