CWGA CHAMPIONSHIP

Our championship was rescheduled from June to August 3rd & 4th at CC of Farmington and the format was changed to reduce the number of days required by eliminating the qualifying round - the 1st round matches were determined by players' handicap indices.

The 2020 Champion was Leslie Li (Tumble Brook CC) and the Runner Up was Priscilla Wargo (Heritage Village CC). The other two semi-finalists were Patti Cheyne (Hartford GC) and Mercedese Large (Wampanoag CC).

The Founders Cup Champion was Pam Burt (CC Farmington), victorious over Christine Sullivan (New Haven CC) in the final. Donna Harris (Farmington Woods GC) and Donna Forshaw (Redding CC) were semi-finalists.

VIRTUAL BETTER-BALL STABLEFORD - Benefiting PME/CWGA Scholarship Fund

We held our second virtual golf tournament on Tuesday June 23rd and Wednesday June 24th and it was a resounding success. The format was a Better-Ball Stableford to benefit our PME/CWGA Scholarship Fund. 111 members participated across 3 states and 34 golf courses! Results and pictures can be seen below.

Most importantly, with your generosity we have raised $1,845 from the entry fees and additional donations.

In 2020 the PME/CWGA Scholarship fund paid out almost $36 thousand to 17 young women scheduled to graduate between 2021 and 2024. The average scholarship is currently about $2,000 and these scholarships are renewable for up to four years of college expenses. The average GPA of our scholarship recipients was 3.6 and ranged from 3.2 to 4.0. If you'd like to learn more about the scholarship fund you can read about it on our website: https://cwga.org/Juniors

For those who played, thank you for your pictures, scorecards, use of Golf Genius to enter your scores, and enthusiastic response and support as we find ways to be together but separate! And don't forget to post your score!

For those of you who would were not able to play but made a contribution we are truly grateful.
