New Golfer (DE)






2018 EWGA Eastern Shore Chapter

New Golfer/Refresher League (DE)


Captain: Anne McBride




 Welcome to the 2018 Season of the EWGA New Golfer/Refresher League (DE)!


This league is open to anyone new to the game of golf and you don’t have to reside in Delaware. No experience is required, and no handicap is needed for this league. It is open to beginners and those who have played before but do not feel ready to progress to a different league.  


This league is very special to our EWGA Eastern Shore Chapter, as we want to introduce and encourage as many women as possible to pursue and enjoy the game of golf.  We understand the anxiety that new golfers experience before getting out on the course to play.  Therefore, we progress in a way to slowly build your skills and thus empower you to get out on the course and have fun! Our use of EWGA mentors on the course enable you to have all your questions answered when they arise.  You will learn pace of play, etiquette, golf cart safety and how to develop a handicap.  We will award a prize for the Most Improved at the End of Season Celebration; however, we are confident that everyone will show great progress!


Wednesday, May 9th

New Golfer/Refresher League (DE) begins.

5/9 - 6/13 Every Wednesday, the league begins with weekly lessons at Bear Trap Dunes with the Pro at their practice facilities at 3:45 p.m. for one-hour fifteen-minute lesson. Cost: $15 per week


6/20 – 8/1 (no class on July 4th). Every Wednesday, a lesson along with slow progression onto course play with mentors.  1/2-hour lesson is $8 and partial course play is $12; and then end of season play is $20 for nine holes.


Every Wednesday, you will receive an Evite regarding the details of our league for the next week.  Please RSVP - yes or no - by Saturday of that week. You must cancel by calling or emailing the Captain by Sunday if you cannot play. If you do not cancel, you will receive a warning.  This is necessary; as we must give the golf club enough notice as to how many will play. On the 3rd warning, you will be removed from the league.


Please arrive 15 minutes early.  This gives you time to drop off your clubs, park and go to the Pro shop to pay.  (A suggested tip for the bag guys -$1-2)

Rain: In case of light rain, we will golf.  If there is lightning or a heavy downpour, golf will be cancelled. If in doubt, please call the course - 302-537-5600 ext. 1.  A decision to cancel will be made by 3:15 on the day of play.  


Our goal is for you to enjoy an encouraging environment, a worthwhile experience and Lots of Fun!
