About North Carolina Women’s Golf Association

Presidents Letter
Spring 2017


As spring nears, be assured that the NCWGA board is diligently working on tournaments and
programs for you in 2017! How fortunate we are to play golf in North Carolina which offers over
550 courses across the state from the mountains to the beaches. For our valued members all
over North Carolina, it is our priority to provide activities for female golfers of every ability and
interest level.
 
In June, the 67th annual North Carolina Women’s Amateur Championship was held at
Croasdaile Country Club in Durham. Champion Bryana Nguyen, who shot three impressive
subpar rounds went home with the trophy but graciously donated her winnings back to NCWGA.
2017 Tournament Chair Linda Daniel, her volunteers and the staff at Pine Island Country Club in
Charlotte are busily preparing for this year’s tournament which will be held June 20 - 22. This
popular site will prove to be challenging for all players.
 
Silver Creek Plantation in Morganton was the site of the 2016 Team Net Tournament. Although
the field was slim, fun and fellowship was in abundance. Planning is underway for the 2017 TNT
so please check the website for details.
 
Another popular program available through NCWGA is the State Play Day. This handicap
tournament awards the player with the lowest net score across the state as the State Play Day
Champion.
 
Junior girls are an integral focus for us. The “Penny Per Stroke” campaign is a fun and easy way
to raise money that benefits junior girls programs that are supported by NCWGA members. So
please remember to collect your pennies (or dollars) for this worthwhile effort.
 
The GolFund is a program we are proud to offer.  Online information is available about this tax
deductible opportunity to make donations in honor or memory of someone special. These funds
go towards the general operational fund of the NCWGA and can be allocated as needed to
promote women’s golf in North Carolina.
 
We are striving to make sure that our website is updated and accessible. For 2017, we again
will make our Membership information available on the website rather than doing a USPS
mailing. We hope this will assure instant information on our programs when needed.
 
Achieving the NCWGA goal of promoting women’s golf would not be possible without the
participation of the hard working, dedicated volunteer board members of whom I am honored to
be President. I would like to thank each of these ladies, the CGA, member clubs, and individual
members for their active role in achieving this. Thank you for your support!
 

Think positive, always!
 
Kim Jones
President, NCWGA, Inc.
