CWGA News Update, March 2014

Spring is Just Around the Corner?

It is that time of the year !  March 9th brings the return of  Daylight Savings time; Wearing of the Green on the 17th; and the First day of  Spring on the 20th..  The snowbirds are probably thinking of returning “home” within the next month or so, but after the snowy and icy weather in February, they might be giving a second thought or two!

Dues Correction

In case you missed prior announcements, CWGA dues have been raised to $67.00 for 2014.  This is due to increase in fees by OGA.  Be sure to send in your dues by April 1st.  2014 promises to be a fantastic year!

If you are interested and willing to be a mentor and companion for new golfers joining CWGA, please send your name via email to Kathy Harp, Membership Chair,

Include the date you plan to begin playing golf at Charbonneau.  She will send you a list of “duties” so you will know the drill!  We hope to have lots of new faces joining us this season.

New and exciting times are ahead, so get ready for a big year with CWGA!  In the meantime, stay warm, dry and most of all, happy. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
