Dear GWGA Members:


Just an update on our State Amateur. As of now, we plan to hold it as planned on July 19-21. We will continue to monitor all available guidance and regulations from the CDC along with other Federal, State and Local Authorities, as well as The Landings Club to do what is in the best interest of those involved with this Tournament.

We will post updates to our members as we have them. Thanks for your patience and continue to stay safe.


  Sincerely,

  Sissi Gann

Change of Dates for 2020 "4 Ball Tournament"

Dear GWGA members and other interested women golfers,

Like everyone else we are monitoring reports and recommendations from Government Agencies as to the Coronavirus Pandemic currently plaguing our nation.  In that regard, we have decided to be proactive and skip over all this madness and reschedule our Jekyll 4-Ball to September 28-29. The practice round would be on Sunday, September 27 and you can choose Indian Mounds all day or Pine Lakes in the afternoon. Hopefully all of you that have signed up for our April 4-Ball would be able to play in September. It goes without saying that if you were signed up for April and can’t play in September, you would receive a full refund.


We are in the process of contacting our host hotels and feel sure they will give us the same rates as they did before. I spoke with the Westin representative and if you had a reservation there, they have already cancelled it and you will need to make a new one. She asked that you wait until next week to do that. I also spoke with Home 2 and they are giving us the same rate. You will need to change your reservation there. Waiting to hear back from the Holiday Inn and Hampton.


In the next few weeks we will post all the details here on our website but wanted to go ahead and give you a heads up about the new date so you could make your plans accordingly.

Someone said that “trying times bring out the best in people”. Well, maybe it will bring out the best in our golf game as well. I certainly could use a good score or two, especially with this New World Handicap System!


In the meantime, “STAY CALM AND WASH YOUR HANDS!”
