December 19th was a beautiful day for golf at Ocean Pines Golf Club.
Congrats to Holly Calcara for her long chip shot on No, 4 Par 5,
giving her a well-earned par! 


Through our partnership with Troon Golf, any member who makes a hole-in-one during an EWGA-sponsored event receives a complimentary round of golf for four at a Troon Golf facility.
You just need to send a copy of your scorecard, attested by your playing partners, and verified by the club’s Golf Professional (if possible).  Also include the yardage of the hole, the hole number, and the golf club you used to make the shot.
Send your information to
amanda_hoey@ewga.com and she will coordinate with Troon to have your certificate for your complimentary golf sent to you – as well as get you posted as an inductee of the Hole-in-One Club on the EWGA website!

Also, be sure to let one of the Chapter board members know about it so we can publicize it in our newsletter.

LPGA/EWGA Alliance

LPGA Amateur Golf Association
Eastern Shore of MD/DE Chapter
As most of you may know, we have a new name! We are now the LPGA Amateur Golf Association. Our new website address is: lpgaamateurseshore.com. Please bookmark this in your favorites. If you use the former address, it will automatically point to the new one. This re-direct will remain in effect for the next several months.
So, what does all of this mean to you?
This alliance doesn’t change anything we do as a Chapter. It does provide the strength of the LPGA as they work with us to remain committed to the EWGA’s core membership, golf and event experiences, now powered by the LPGA brand.
Mike Whan, LPGA Commissioner, said, “We have the same mission and that is to bring women into the game of golf. I don’t care if you play competitively, for work events or just for fun, you are important to this alliance and we want you to play and stay. With the resources and global reach of the LPGA and the passion and commitment of EWGA, I believe we have what it takes to make women’s golf bigger, stronger and better for decades to come.”
In the coming weeks, you will see us replace the EWGA logo with our new logo on the website, newsletter, facebook and all other written communication. We’ve also taken this opportunity to change our tagline to incorporate our Delaware membership which is now almost half of our total members.
We hope you are as excited as we are about this new venture! Please reach out to any Board Member with questions, concerns or comments.

Our Charities

Giving Back

The LPGA Amateur Golf Association – Eastern Shore MD/DE Chapter is a successful organization and that is all due to our many, many volunteers and our membership, which grows every year.

 We raise money for one large charity, the American Cancer Society, with a Pink Ball Week held in August of each year and our long-running Pink Ribbon Classic Golf Tournament held in October of each year. It’s time we gave back a little more. So, we are adding two more charities—one in Sussex County, Delaware and one in Worcester County, Maryland.

 What is Your Voice – Sussex County

What is Your Voice, Inc.? Peer Support Advocates empower women and children to live violence-free lives. The objective of this organization is to reduce the risk of women or children repeating the cycle of violence or fleeing from violent homes, becoming a statistic of poverty, homelessness, addiction or human trafficking. They provide a holistic approach of healing through intensive aftercare for the whole person--Body, Soul and Spirit--while breaking the cycle of violence within Sussex County, Delaware.

The focus is a holistic view of the initial needs of victims in full crisis, providing support in the journey through the courts or requiring long-term care. They target stabilization in all forms, removal of isolation for community connection, empowerment and economic self-sufficiency. They address financial and health needs, isolation, trauma, PTSD, educational direction or employment, housing needs for temporary shelter and entrance into rental situations.

Diakonia – Worcester County

Diakonia operates two locations in West Ocean City, Maryland where it provides emergency and transitional housing, emergency food services, and counseling and assistance for its residents. More than just a shelter, the organization attempts to address the root causes of homelessness through a variety of programs and initiatives.

For those who are in danger of becoming homeless, for whatever reason, Diakonia offers counseling, guidance and assistance in accessing a wide variety of support programs and, where necessary and appropriate, financial assistance for certain housing-related costs. For those who are homeless, Diakonia offers a roof over their heads as well as counseling and support in addressing the issues that contributed to homelessness in the first place.  Diakonia also operates a food pantry that provides food assistance to hundreds of needy families every month. 

The source of our contributions to these wonderful organizations will come from our 50/50 contests that we hold throughout the year at many of our events. Half of the money that normally goes into our ‘account’ will be spread equally between these two charities.

Julie's extensive training traces back to the original Lotte Berk Method Studio, having completed her foundational training with Burr Leonard, Founder of The Bar Method. Seven years into her career, to keep her practice organic and well informed, Julie chose to enhance her teaching skills through exhale's Barre Certification Program.  She participated in one of exhale's very first teacher training programs, under the direct tutelage of Core Fusion Co-Founders Fred DeVito and Elisabeth Halfpapp – whom Barre aficionados worldwide consider to be the world’s foremost living barre experts.

In providing his Irish genealogy services, Mike’s ultimate goals are to find, retrieve, and deliver to his clients their Irish ancestors’ official Irish church baptism certificates and Irish government birth certificates. Mike developed his interest and passion for Irish genealogy through the study of his own Irish family history, stimulated by lengthy Healy family history conversations and discussions with his relatives in Ireland. Mike Healy is a Tourism Ireland Certified Ireland Specialist and the Author/Photographer of “Irish Genealogy Tips, Techniques and Tales” , “Ireland Mosaic: A Photo Journey”, and “Pubs of Ireland” series eBooks in the following online bookstores www.amazon.com | www.bn.com | Google Nexus bookstore | and the Apple iBookstore.

Victoria Christie-Healy has been knitting since childhood with long breaks taken for schooling, family raising and careers. She has been devoting herself to this obsession for knitting most seriously for the past dozen years or so. In recent years Victoria has been a member of the Loudoun Valley Sheep Producer’s Association, giving time and attention to their Wool Shop. This has been a wonderful way to learn about breed specific artisan wool yarns that are available through local sheep farms.

Her career as a knitting teacher started at the Reston Community Center in 2009. She has taught beginning and intermediate knitting classes for the Reston, Herndon and Vienna community Centers.

Most knitters eventually do some charity work, and Victoria is no exception. She donated some of her teaching time to be auctioned off by the Reston Interfaith organization.
