 Welcome to the 2018 Season of the New Golfers/ Refresher League (MD)!


This league is open to anyone new to the game of golf.  No experience necessary, you don’t have to reside in Maryland, and no handicap is required for this league.  Also, it is open to those who have played before, but do not feel ready to move on to a league with more experienced players.


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.  Therefore, we progress in a way to slowly build your skills and thus empower you to get on the course and have fun! For the first six weeks, we start with lessons on specific skills from the Pros at the course. Then, our use of EWGA mentors on the course to make you feel more secure and to have all your questions answered.  You will also learn pace of play, golf etiquette, and how to develop a handicap.


Tuesdays, May 8 - June 12. New Golfer/Refresher League (MD) Begins...4pm

Every Tuesday, the league begins with a weekly lesson at River Run Golf Club with the esteemed Golf Pro, Bob Beckelman. The cost each week is $20.00.


Tuesday’s, June 19 - August 28. We will have a short lesson along with a slow progression onto the course with a mentor.  The lesson will be $10 and the course play will be $12 (eventually $15). 


Every Friday, you will receive an Evite regarding the details of our league for the next week.  Please RSVP by Sunday of that week. You must call or email one of the Captains by Monday if you cannot play that week.  If you do not cancel as required, you will receive a warning.  This is necessary as we have to inform the golf course how many will attend (on the third warning, you can 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 is $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.  A decision to cancel will be made by 3:15 on the day of play.  


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