We Need a Few Good Women!

There are several CWGA board positions open in 2017.  If you enjoy participating in CWGA golf events, please consider this opportunity to give back. The only  special skills required are a love for the game of golf and a willingness to donate a few hours of your time.  Of course, should you have a particular interest in a certain area and can offer your services, kindly contact any present board member or Robin Bickerstaff
